Ultrasonic sensor sorts labelling


Transparent labels and substrates pose no problems for the new SICK UF Next fork sensor which uses ultrasonics to sense label position precisely whether clear, opaque, with coloured or printed designs, different web materials or even foils and metallics.

The versatility of the improved design is matched by a fast response time to ensure accuracy even at high web speeds, making it ideal for a wide range of packaging and labelling applications.
“The UF Next solves a host of problems encountered in labelling,” explains Phil Dyas, Sensor Expert SICK (UK). “It will even detect double sheets, overlaps and two ply materials.”
