About Us

SENSAP™ specializes in the design, development, and deployment of autoID-centric (Barcode & RFID) Quality Inspection and Materials-Flow Traceability systems targeting small-to-medium sized Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics, as well as Print & Carton-Converting enterprises.

Instituted in 2002, in Athens, Greece, company SENSAP Microsystems AE specializes in the development and distribution of equipment, software, and consumables for the Printing and Carton-Converting industry.
Founded on the company’s broad visibility in the logistics and manufacturing sectors, SENSAP Swiss AG, our autoID technologies branch, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, is involved in the development of our autoID-centric, J2EE Enterprise Software and Industrial Automation Hardware systems.


SENSAP Swiss AG was founded on April 1st, 2011 in Zurich Switzerland as the industrial development arm of the AutoID department of company SENSAP SA, based in Athens (Greece). Founded on SENSAP’s broad visibility in the logistics and manufacturing sectors, rich intellectual property, and world-class expertise, SENSAP Swiss, develops and markets SBOX Traceability software suite and INTERGA series of hardware modules that target manufacturing companies and logistics enterprises in the Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics, Carton-Conversion, and Apparel business sectors.

The company’s solutions adopt best-of-breed Internet of Things (IoT) architectures, which enable the integration and orchestration of multiple heterogeneous and distributed sensors in a scalable way. SENSAP has experience in the integration of solutions based on standard-based IoT architectures, such as the architectures introduced by EPC Global and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and based on de-facto open source architectures (notably based on the Global Sensor Networks-GSN and AspireRFID open source projects). SENSAP Swiss AG is an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) and Systems Integrator, providing turn-key solutions that address IoT solutions including Machine Vision Systems, AutoID-centric (RFID, Barcode) and Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) based on multi-sensor systems. SENSAP offer Materials Handling Automation, comprising Hardware, Middleware, and Applications Software, for Human-Driven Operations, with reference to: 

  • Manufacturing and Warehouse Operations Execution.
  • Asset Management and Preventive Maintenance.
  • Materials-Flow Traceability throughout the entire Product Supply-Chain and Lifecycle.

In addition, SENSAP develop custom vision quality inspection solutions in demanding industrial environments which lead to a complete range of machine vision quality, in-line inspection products, for the Carton-Conversion, Pharmaceuticals-and-Cosmetics and Food-and-Beverage industries.


SENSAP has profound experience in the development of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) manufacturing solutions and components that allow for data acquisition from the shop-floor, with emphasis on paper and packaging manufacturing business. The company has also implemented projects that involve the whole CPS solution development lifecycle, from solution inception to deployment in the factory. These successful combined industrial projects regarding acquisition data from the production floor and the gain experience through European funded projects led to the Daedalus IoT device, part of the Integra products line.


SENSAP™ INTEGRA series of industrial automation modules make up the heart of SENSAP’s intelligent sensors and actuators network paradigm. Combining industrial Human-Machine Interfacing (HMI) techniques conforming to the Poka Yoke paradigm, such as signaling lights and voice actuators, with modern machine-vision and sensing technologies, such as vision sensors, RFID/BAROCDE scanners, optical encoders, laser interferometers, ultrasonic-, and weight-transducers, SENSAP™ INTEGRA modules form isles of multimodal automation in warehouses and manufacturing sites that ensure product quality and enable efficient execution, real-time monitoring, and accurate documentation of:
Receiving & Putting-Away,
Storing & Inventory,
Manufacturing & Packing
Picking & Sorting, and
Consolidating & Shipping operations.
By means of SENSAP™ SBOX MIS server software, INTEGRA automation modules integrate with the most popular EIS systems (i.e. ERP, WMS, MRP) providing automatic and reliable synchronization of warehouse and shop-floor resources (i.e. labor, equipment, tools, and materials) with standing managerial data, while enabling real-time, remote visibility of operations performance through WEB-based dashboards.

The IQ-OPTION is an inline vision sensor for the ITK module that detects mixing-copies, as well as printing and die-cutting defects on folding and corrugated cartons. Compared with conventional Pharmacode and Colorcode sensors, the IQ-OPTION is the world’s best-of-breed device.

The sensor performs the quality inspection either on carton-level (in Folding/Gluing machines) or on sheet-level (in Offset-, Rotogravure-, Flexographic-Printing machines). It employs advanced, patented machine-vision algorithms that use miniature, colored DATAMATRIX symbols to check for:

  • Product and LOT Mixing (Mixing-Copy verification)
  • Print-to-Cut Registration Displacement and/or Rotation
  • Missing Colors
  • Color Misregistration
  • Color Fidelity Failure (i.e. Intensity, Saturation, Dot-Gain, and Tone-Value)

Unlike conventional devices, the IQ-OPTION sensors dynamically compensate for carton-white during color-intensity measurements and calculate separate intensity histograms for each individual color. They are the only devices to measure the registration of individual colors on a carton/item-level, so as to detect artwork fidelity failures on cartons that reside at the edges of large boards (i.e. 1000×1400 sqmm).

Moreover, thanks to SENSAP’s advanced machine-vibration compensation technology, the sensors are capable of measuring the Print-to-Cut registration, on a carton/item level, with unparalleled accuracy (i.e. >50 microns) at the highest machine-speed.

The sensors store actual images and individual defect descriptions of non-conforming items for each separate production run (LOT).

The IQ-OPTION sensors retrofit to almost any piece of printing and folding/gluing equipment and facilitate easy operation and automatic setup thanks to SENSAP’s advanced autoTEACH and autoSET technologies.

High performance Rotary Ejector, and
Ink-Jet Marking Nozzle.
In case of defect identification the ITK issues an alarm (i.e. optical and sound signal), activates its spoilage ejector, or spoilage marker, and stops – optionally – the machine feeder. Such alarms can be further transmitted to existing shop-floor industrial automation systems through PROFINET, AS, and TCP/IP interfaces.

SENSAP™ INTEGRA devices leverage world-class UHF RFID and BARCODE technologies combined with Vision Sensors and Optical Encoders to integrate seamlessly into the working environment of machine-operators.
