Sick has announced to open its first Application Centre (ACA) in Asia. It plans to set up system solutions for factory and logistics automation which will be tested and optimised for subsequent productive use under realistic conditions in a floor area of almost 1000 sq mt. As a result of strong growth forecast in Asia, the company has decided on the ACA, offering customers responses to detailed technical questions and special application requirements without major time zone differences to complement the activities of its sales subsidiaries. Automation applications and solutions can be realistically tested and prepared for rapid implementation in a customer environment at a variety of stations. All current technologies and applications in factory and logistics automation are covered, such as high-end vision based barcode reading systems or image processing. According to Markus Paschmann, Executive Member, Factory Automation, Sick, a widespread global structure offering close proximity to the customer is an important factor in the success of the company.
