MultiLine and W27-3 MultiPac sensors
Sick has introduced the MultiLine sensor, which provides a stable and continuous detection signal from the leading to the trailing edge of a product, even when surfaces are glossy, flat or contoured.
The MultiLine’s twin light-beam technology detects low-profile, uneven or glossy product surfaces, such as vacuum foil coffee packs, wrapped chocolate bars or soup sachets. The sensor’s innovative design reduces the risk of machine downtime by eliminating false signals, leading to improved productivity.
Sick has also released the W27-3 MultiPac, a single-unit optical sensor which operates without the need for reflectors. The sensor improves handling efficiency and productivity in operations where highly efficient checking and control is required, for example detecting PET-foil six packs or shrink-wrapped transparent bottles or pallets.
