Omron exhibits new technologies in a virtual interactive platform

Omron exhibits new technologies in a virtual interactive platform

Omron has launched a virtual exhibition that enables visitors to walk through a 360 degree virtual tour, guiding them around ‘the factory of the future’ – one in which different innovations have been introduced to increase flexibility, enhance efficiency and boost productivity. The virtual exhibition highlights, in particular, six new technologies that can be used to achieve industrial transformation, with collaboration between people and machines taking a progressive leap forward.

The solutions that are highlighted in the tour include all new robotics, vision and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. These are all based around Omron’s ‘Innovative-Automation’ concept, which seeks to revitalise the manufacturing industry by enhancing cooperation and understanding between machines and people, using intelligent, integrated and interactive solutions.

Omron says the demonstrations show a leap forward in how people and machines can work together in a new type of harmony, by illustrating how manufacturing innovations can be put to practical use in collaborative production. Innovations such as those shown can be used to improve the lives of both factory workers and consumers, and contribute towards building a better society.

Among the exhibits, visitors are shown an intelligent High-Mix Low-Volume (HMLV) Cell Line Control System that combines AI with the Internet of Things (IoT) and 3D vision, intelligent sensing and control, and robotics, with the aim of optimising production and minimising errors.

Visitors will also experience 3D bin picking, which is used to automate complex picking operations during assembly. The tour continues with demonstrations of safe machine tending with cobots, AI inspection of potential defects in products, and the high-precision alignment of items. It concludes with a demonstration of laser machining technology, which can improve laser processing times by over 35%.

Fernando Colas, general director for marketing at Omron Europe, comments: “While many trade shows cannot take place in these difficult times, we wanted to bring our latest technology to customers in the virtual exhibition and give them the opportunity to experience the factory of the future online, wherever they are. This underlines the commitment of Omron to further advancing and promoting the future of productive manufacturing.”
