Captures motion. Without contact.
The SPEETEC non-contact incremental encoder from SICK detects the movement of object surface without contacting them. This motion surface sensor opens up new possibilities for measuring sensitive, colored, soft or smooth objects with minimal maintenance effort. Whether it is continuous roll material or single items like paper, plastic metal, wood, or textile, SPEETEC can reliably determine the length, position, and speed of all kinds of objects and surfaces. Plus, the laser is wear-free, ensuring more process reliability with minimal maintenance costs.

Non-Contact measurements which are gentle on sensitive materials such as thin film or soft rubber.
Non-contact measurement of
speed, length, and position
- Slip-free position measurement for increased accuracy and process productivity.
- Length measurement with high accuracy even on short cut pieces for quality control.
- Suitable for start-stop operation
- Optical position measurement – no contamination of the material while cutting.
- Incremental encoder interface
- Measuring distance to the surface 50 mm
- Speed up to 10 m/s.
- Class 1 laser
Fields of Application
The SPEETEC reliably detects the web speed and supplies the print unit with high-precision signals. This controls the print unit with precision and ensures a high-quality print image.
In cutting or printing processes, the speed of the foil web must be detected. SPEETEC enables precise measurement on foil webs.
Extrusion, cables, tubes, hoses, profiles
In addition to movements of endless materials, the non-contact incremental encoder also accurately detects movements of piece goods.
