Founded in 1946 by Dr.Erwin Sick in Freiburg, SICK is one of the leading manufacturers of industrial sensor solutions. This was bolstered by their acquisition of Stegmann’s encoder technology back in 

SICK regularly work alongside OEM’s and are often seen on servo motor applications powered by 
Allen Bradley, Baumuller and Bosch Rexroth to name a few..

SICK sensor technology in such industries as factory automation (including courier, express and 
parcel logistics) and process automation.

Alpha Electrics has a long standing 20+ year relationship with SICK. With a specialist testing facility 
and part sourcing capabilities, Alpha Electrics are well positioned to address all your encoder issues

SICK Encoder Repair:

Our SICK encoder repair work covers a variety of models including the Eco Line, Compact, High End and DB, AH, AF, SKM, SKS, EKM and EKS ranges.
SICK encoders are of high quality and hard wearing but over time can experience a range of issues during usage. These may include warped or bent shafts, pulse and signal jitters, failing to rotate, low amplitude, and excess ingress of contaminants.

The repair process to your faulty encoder begins with an initial inspection normally within 2 hours of receipt. All issues uncovered are outlined in a full quotation along with a detailed proposal of how we intend to carry out the work.

Once confirmed, the repair process service normally takes between 4 - 5 days. We can provide faster turnarounds of less than 24 hours, if you are facing a business critical situation.

If a repair is not a viable option, a suitable replacement can typically be sourced from our comprehensive procurement network.
