OD Mini Short Range Distance Sensors
Sick Logo
Simple, precise, and economic solution
for measuring tasks 


The new OD Mini short range distance sensor from SICK is one of the world's smallest displacement sensors with display and control elements.  Its measurement accuracy in the μm range, high-quality fittings, compact size and low weight are impressive.


These sensors are equipped with the latest CMOS receiver technology for precise measurement, regardless of the brightness and color of the surface material.  The integrated amplifier unit enables the OD Mini to work on a stand-alone basis. Cabling to an external amplifier unit is no longer an issue.  The OD Mini is simple to configure due to its intuitive design and display with four status LEDs.

  • Compact, robust housing 
  • Integrated amplifier unit
  • Digital, analog and serial interface available
  • Simple teach-in using display or external teaching input
  • Three measuring ranges from 10 mm to 150 mm
Gocator 4.0 Firmware Release
Complete redesign improves efficiency of the inspection process
The latest Gocator 4.0 Firmware is a complete redesign of the web browser user interface experience that makes the inspection process even more efficient than ever before. Driven by market feedback, the 4.0 Firmware has an improved workflow and layout that aligns with common industry practices. Measurement tools are intuitively regrouped by categories for quick setup. Its modern yet sophisticated graphical user interface delivers simpler setup of measurement tools while maintaining advanced capabilities and control.
  • Part edge filtering improves measurement accuracy 
  • Greater ability to handle part variations with flexible anchoring
  • Surface generation offers flexibility with various setup options
  • Improvements to SDK simplify Software Programming
Parker MPW Series Servo Motors
Parker Logo Stainless Steel Brushless Servo Motors 


The new MPW Series extends the MPP motor family to meet the needs of those applications exposed to high pressure, highly caustic, washdown environments. Specific applications can be found in such markets as Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Packaging, and any other application that may be exposed to a harsh environment (salt, fog and humidity).

  • 6 models covering three frame sizes of 90, 115, and 142mm  
  • Sealed to IP69K for 1200 psi washdown requirements
  • Potted stator design for improved thermal efficiency
  • 35 to 170 in-lbs continuous torque (230 and 460VAC supply)
  • Options include high resolution encoders, resolvers, and 24 V brake
  • Cable options available to plug and play with competitor drives

Empowering Us in Many Forms
WHITE PAPER: The Realm of Collaborative Robots


No area of industrial robotics has attracted more fanfare than human-robot collaboration. You can't deny the compelling nature of collaborative robots. They have an innate ability to both fascinate and empower us humans.

With the hype come misconceptions. This paper will try to dispel these myths, while tackling the growing debate over safety. It also explores the latest developments in this domain and see how researchers on two continents are helping to shape our factories of the future
