SICK Technology Days are coming to a venue near youSensing specialist SICK UK is hitting the road with a series of its popular Technology Days to bring expert advice in Machine Vision, Auto Ident and Measurement to the production doorstep.

The free ‘drop-in’ workshops are specially designed to enable quality and production engineers to take a short time out of a busy day to gain valuable insights that could help them optimise their processes, improve quality and save costs.

Delegates are invited to bring along sample parts and discuss their specific applications with Sick UK’s product specialists at any time between 7am and 3pm and enjoy a breakfast or light lunch.

Centrally located at venues in Gateshead, Wrexham and Slough during September, the workshops will also showcase technologies for vision inspection, barcode readers and scanners and non-contact distance measurement devices.

Sick UK’s machine vision specialists will focus on when to use 2D and 3D Vision Sensors and when it is advisable to source an integrated vision system. The team will also give regular demonstrations of Sick vision sensors and systems.

Sick’s Auto Ident specialists will be on hand to demonstrate 1D and 2D Code Readers and to help delegates optimise their read rates. Advice will be given on when Code Readers or Machine Vision are the most appropriate option.

Meanwhile, the Sick measurement team will advise on using non-contact devices for quality control applications in a range of production applications. They will demonstrate Sick sensing products for reliable object detection regardless of colour, and advise on when to use lasers or barcodes for anti-collision or position applications.

Workshop details are:

  • 11 September 2012, Team Valley, Gateshead
