Sensors: the sensory organs of the digital age

The company Sick AG, based in Waldkirch, Germany, which offers 40,000 different sensors, is the world leader and unchallenged trailblazer in sensor technology. The innovative concern and its products are playing a significant part in the development of Industry 4.0. In order to achieve the maximum possible functionality of their sensors, Sick AG works closely with Stamm, the specialist in high-precision miniature plastic components.

Added Value


  • Development of highly complex plastic components
  • Meeting the technical requirements regarding complexity and precision
  • Long-standing collaboration and successful know-how swapping

Industry 4.0

Digitisation, individualisation, networking and autonomous machines are the buzzwords of the digital age. The basis of Industry 4.0 is the digital perception of our environment. These days this demanding task is often performed by sensors, operating as the sensory organs of our digital world. They recognise, measure, count and transfer real-life occurrences into digital signals, which in turn perform or instigate various activities.

Innovative sensor technologies demand complex plastic components

With 9,000 employees worldwide, Sick AG manufactures 40,000 different sensors. Whether you can see them or not, they control our daily lives. They include distance sensors, detection and measurement solutions, lighting controls, photoelectric barriers and light grids: a world without these sensitive and highly precise sensors has become unthinkable, with so many processes resulting from the interplay between the physical and virtual worlds we inhabit.

In order for sensors to fulfil their requirements to the optimum, they must be afforded the utmost protection against environmental influences. In designing the optic housings the experts from Stamm analyse the sensor type concerned and carefully elaborate the required plastic injection mouldings. The challenge is to take the tight space into account whilst meeting the technical requirements regarding complexity and precision. This is achieved by drawing on years of successful collaboration and know-how swapping. This means that Sick AG benefits from a partner able to offer a comprehensive one-stop-shop support platform, from the initial concept through design and development of prototypes, right up to the mass production of faultless end products.

Stamm is a member of the SFS Group.
