SICK Registration Sensors
Packaging and many other applications require sensing of defined points (Registration) on rolls of material. Sick offers an extensive range of luminescent, markless, and standard registration sensors. Contact Allied Automation for assistance on your application.
The KT8L Laser contrast sensor offers precise detection of the smallest marks and objects due to a long depth of field. With a sensing distance of up to 800mm, the KT8L Laser provides more flexibility than sensors with shorter sensing distances. Two light spot sizes are available: one with a light spot < 0.3 mm for detecting small marks/targets and another light spot approx. 3 mm for detecting slightly larger objects and marks. In addition, a bar graph display showing detection reliability simplifies the teach-in process. Dynamic and static teach-in are selectable to suit individual requirements.
Sick’s ML20 eliminates registration marks that waste space, ink, and detract from the label. Based on a pattern recognition principle, a taught-in image is used as a reference for the detection of a recurring contrast pattern. Setup is easy and quick.
