Sensors support a safer food chain

Sensors support a safer food chain

Delivering innovative sensing technologies that support a safer food chain was the focus of solutions for hygienic environments, quality inspection and product traceability from Sick at PPMA.

"Progress in food technology, the globalisation of trade, and shifts in our eating habits have created new conditions for the production and consumption of food," said Glynn Edwards Sick UK's FMCG segment manager.

"Food chains are becoming increasingly global and complex, demanding better information on the origin, quality, and safety of the food and drink products. The need for transparency, information and control in the entire supply chain has never been more important."

Sick believes it is the first company worldwide to launch advanced 'Smart Sensors' across its product ranges providing applications developed to food processing and packaging needs. Sick has built advanced intelligence into IO-link enabled sensors and achieved powerful new on-board processing capability for photoelectric, magnetic and proximity applications. As a result machine technologies and automation on high-speed production lines can be optimised, taking full advantage of Industry 4.0 factory-wide communications.
