Tray packaging of chocolate with IO-Link sensors from SICK

Imagine a sensor that can let you know when something is about to malfunction: The IO-Link technology offers a diverse range of options for cost-effective, bidirectional communication between sensors and automation systems. IO-Link makes it possible to transfer not only digital output states and digitized analog values, but also a wealth of additional information.

The SOMIC 424 W2 wrap-around packer from SOMIC Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG is just one example of these systems. Through intelligent sensor and control technology, including with SICK IO-Link sensors, the machine provides additional options for greater operating safety, packaging quality and output.
