To "Design for Inspection" is to consciously design product packaging to not only be attractive to customers, but to ensure it can be inspected reliably and efficiently. If the product is designed from inception with an eye towards inspection, the end result is optimal for both sales and manufacturing. Click "Documentation" for the full PDF!

The Dynisco Practical Rheology Handbook provides a review of plastics and polymers, including their names and commonly used abbreviations, processing parameters and testing methods. The handbook also provides a framework for the comprehension of test results as collected from Dynisco Polymer test equipment including melt flow (MF), melt viscosity (MV) and the correlation of solution viscosity to MF and MV.
"Fail to Safe" is a patented concept created by Sensors Incorporated that is designed to provide the optimal product inspection system. At its core, the system assumes every product is assumed to be a "fail" until it is proven "safe" Click "Documentation" for a PDF download!
When it is not possible to control the quality of printed barcodes, particularly from outside sources, there can be a huge impact on system throughput. Sick's low-contrast technology offers both a method of reading low-quality barcodes and a means of providing qualitative data for grading the codes.
Optical filters are not just an accessory, they are a necessity. The right filters can save thousands on equipment, and can make the difference between an application on the edge and an application with excellent repeatability.
Torching and manual cleaning of dies, nozzles, breaker plates, screws, manifolds and related hardware can cause damage, shortening the object's lifes span. Accurate Thermal Systems uses a fluidized, non-abrasive aluminum oxide sand bath at 900 F to clean the parts in 30-60 minutes with no damage to the part.
This white paper created by Sick discusses the pros and cons of laser scanners, cameras and rfid readers for the automation of data collection in a retail distribution center.
The Safety Experts at Sick go through a systematic approach to evaluating risk: "In order to analyze risk, three elements must be combined and considered; the specification of the limits of the machine, identification of hazards, and risk estimation..."
Every process making use of heating and/or cooling can be improved with tighter control of those process variables. This guide describes the available controller options to help you find the right combination of performance and value.
Given their harsh environments of operation, Transducers can be a hard product to care for. We offer great products such as Dynisco's Vertex with a 4 year warranty, but proper care can still go a long way in the longevity of a Transducer. Click "Documentation" for a step by step guide on how to properly care and handle your transducer.
In applications where the lack of space or the presence of heavy traffic preclude installing light curtains, a safety laser scanner is often an effective solution.
