With the introduction of the deTec4 Smart Box Detection access-protection system from SICK, secondary packaging machines in the end-of-line area, top and side loaders, or sorter and ejector modules can now be operated in a safe and user-friendly manner, promises its maker. With the help of a reliable pattern detection logic, Smart Box Detection can safely differentiate rectangular objects, such as boxes, from people and body parts in the inlet and outlet zones of packaging machines or logistics conveying systems. This allows the boxes to be transported continuously without any stops into and out of fenced in machines. Since the safety solution requires no external process signals or muting sensors, it allows a cost-effective, flexible, compact, and maintenance-optimized machine design while also ensuring maximum operator safety, per SICK.
