Matt black detection
11 November 2014
The new SICK W2S family delivers powerful sub-miniature photoelectric positioning sensing for today’s difficult packaging materials – even matt black. The slim housing allows convenient mounting within tight spaces demanded by compact machinery.
The sensor’s photoelectric sensing is said to provide production efficiency and reliability even with challenging objects to detect in electronics and solar panel assembly applications, materials handling and logistics, or packaging applications.
"The W2S will consistently detect matt black materials with as low as 1% reflectivity, unheard of in this size and price range,” says Phil Dyas SICK (UK) industrial sensor specialist. "The sophisticated background suppression software ensures high reliability and consistency whether detecting jet black, brightly-coloured, matt, transparent or highly reflective objects.”
