About Us

In line with its brand claim “Sensor Intelligence.”, the SICK Group focuses on the development, production, and distribution of sensors, systems, and services for industrial automation technology. The company was founded by Dr. Erwin Sick in Vaterstetten near Munich in 1946.

Business activities center on creating added value for customers from a wide range of target industries with intelligent sensor solutions. SICK offers these solutions globally in the form of components, systems including software, or individual services. The SICK Group divides its business activities into factory automation, logistics automation, and process automation business fields.

Factory Automation

Our factory automation department covers all sensor tasks that are required for automatic manufacturing in any factory. The purpose is to count, classify, position or define the shapes of all products and to determine the relevant position details. It also provides industrial safety in the factories. SICK offers solutions for the prevention of accidents and protection of human being with its special sensors and systems.

The field of consumer goods includes the business fields of food & beverage, pharma & cosmetics, print and packaging & processing. SICK covers all sensor tasks that are required for automatic manufacturing in any factory.

For optimized control of process parameters SICK offers a wide range of solutions for measuring process variables for liquids, gases and bulk solids and protecting against overfill and dry run – whether it's pressure measurement, temperature measurement, level control or flow metering.

Logistics Automation

Our logistics automation department serves for designing and optimizing the systems to be used in the logistics and distribution operations. In those business sites where the flow of materials should be automated or where classification, definition and storage operations should be more efficient, faster and reliable, SICK offers the best solution possible for the automation of the logistics departments.

Process Automation

Our process automation department covers gas and dust analysis systems in the industrial facilities, mass flow rate measurement system as well as gas and dust sensors in order to control the ventilation in the tunnels. The aim here is to increase productivity by enabling continuous control with the help of measurements to be performed in all phases of the process and to offer environmentally friendly solutions by meeting the regulatory requirements relating to the measurement of gas and dust emissions. SICK process automation department supports the users with its extensive experience and innovative approach that enables our customers to select the most suitable technology.
