Sick Laser Fork Sensors

July 1, 2009
Sick’s WFL Laser Fork Sensors use Class I, low-power lasers to ensure the smallest light size (0.05 mm wide) for detecting small targets.

In addition, the sensor’s laser light spot is visible to the human eye, enabling simple and quick setup. It features high switching frequencies of 10 kHz. Applications for the sensors include label detection in the packaging and food & beverage markets and the detection of needles in the medical/pharmaceutical markets. Other applications include detecting transparent bottles, ensuring precise positioning of a robot arm, and detecting the position of a piston.
