Mitsubishi has announced the integration of SICK cameras into its vision technology devices.
The solution has been developed for applications across a number of different industries, including life sciences. It combines a SICK vision camera with ready-built and tested function blocks for the Mitsubishi Electric GX Works PLC programming environment.
Both companies believe that vision solutions provide essential information that can enhance automation processes. But more than that, they are the eyes of Industry 4.0 and therefore a key element of the digital transformation of industry.
SICK and Mitsubishi Electric have worked together closely for a number of years, with SICK now joining the e-F@ctory Alliance. This has led to a newly developed solution, aimed to make it easier for users to embed vision technology into applications such as product manufacturing, handling and packaging.
