The diversity of its product line allows SICK to offer solutions at every phase of production in a wide variety of manufacturing environments according to your needs. Solutions from SICK can increase throughput, improve safety and optimize your production processes. We are continually developing intelligent solutions for our customers’ applications. In order to be able to achieve this, SICK are always on the lookout for technologies that allow sensors not merely to perceive things, but to also to control processes intelligently, and to communicate with other components in complex networks.

With over sixty years of practical experience and comprehensive sector expertise, we are a competent partner for our customers’ specific needs. We focus on the productivity of production with automated control concepts. The excellent quality of SICK sensors ensures a high level of plant availability.

The history of SICK is a history of successful innovations. We intend to continue this history of success in future too. We are continually expanding our involvement in research and development in order to be able to remain a technological and market leader. Innovative products alone are not decisive factors in the success of a company. That these innovations provide superior customer advantages is of greater significance; their success on the market is the true measure of newly developed products.
Our success is based on the consistent implementation of this concept: we use our knowledge of customer requirements to anticipate future developments. Our customers thus profit, for example, from smaller housings offering the same performance, from increased sensor robustness, from fewer work steps or accelerated processes.

SICK offer a wide range of training opportunities throughout our product range. We will teach you how to efficiently solve applications and get the most out of every product in SICK's catalogue.
