High-precision distance measurement

Published:  31 August, 2017

The SICK OD1000 displacement sensor is said to set new standards in high-precision distance measurement with its extremely long 1 metre scanning range and a resolution down to 450µm. Developed by SICK to achieve high consistency and linearity in measurement results on many different surfaces and colours, even at high production speeds, SICK says the OD1000 goes the extra distance for performance and value.

Many automated industrial processes such as the metal forming and automotive industries, depend on such precision measurements, for example for on-belt positioning, metal sheet edge counting and diameter checks on spools or coils for unwinding tasks. SICK says the OD1000 offers new levels of precision and range at an affordable mid-price point.
