For over 70 years, SICK has been a pioneer of intelligent sensors and solutions for the industrial automation market. Our ingenious founder, Dr. E.h. Erwin Sick, built the company with one primary objective—developing unique solutions to help our customers manage their most complex challenges. Some examples of our earliest innovations include, developing the first photoelectric switches based on the auto-collimation principle, print-mark detection sensors, light curtains for accident prevention and optical flue gas monitoring devices.
Our continued focus on developing innovative solutions has allowed SICK to expand into new technologies such as machine vision, LIDAR, safety controls and more. As a result, we are able to help customers across a broad range of industries including manufacturers of automobiles, consumer goods, retail warehouse, distribution centers, oil & gas producers, autonomous robotics manufacturers as well as the OEMs and systems integrators serving those customers.
Industry 4.0, the internet of things, AI and other “trends” of yesteryear have become a reality today. As the world leader of intelligent sensing solutions, we will continue to innovate new solutions that provide insight and analysis. This will enable our customers to proactively solve their complex issues and more efficiently manage production, throughput, quality, and safety. At SICK, we are looking forward to all the new challenges and opportunities the future and Industry 4.0 will bring.
