SICK offers seminars on sensor and drives advances

Sensor and drives advances, their applications and the business benefits are highlighted in a day of free seminars being offered by SICK (UK) and Lenze.

The popular Automation Technology Seminars programme for 2008 combines discussions on the latest industry issues and real application examples with an opportunity to see working demonstrations and ask the experts.

Subjects include pioneering advances in 3D-vision inspection and developments in logistics control. The seminars will also cover the implications of new machine safety legislation. For those interested in a more in-depth exploration of new machine safety standards EN 62061 and BS EN 13849-1, SICK is also offering a separate safety seminar day at its St Albans offices on 9 July 2008.

The next SICK/Lenze joint seminar takes place at the Lowry Centre, Manchester on 3 July 2008. At the last event held at the RBS Williams F1 Conference Centre in Oxfordshire in May 2008, more than 70 delegates enjoyed insights into the potential benefits to their business and profit margins.

To book a place on the SICK/Lenze automation technology seminars on 3 July 2008 or SICK's safety seminar on 9 July 2008, please contact Ann Attridge or Andrea Hornby on +44 (0)1727 831121, email or, or book online at
