Automation beyond human abilities, advanced collaboration between people and machines and accelerating digital transformation at manufacturing sites will help manufacturers realize flexible, efficient, and sustainable production. Visit OMRON at Hannover Messe 2022 (May 30 – June 2) in hall 9, booth F24.
At its booth, with a new design to reflect a real factory floor, OMRON brings on-site innovation to life by embodying three pillars of the automation concept: intelligent, integrated, and interactive automation. Following OMRON’s mission, the company creates industrial automation solutions that improve lives and contribute to a better society.
“Currently, manufacturers around the world need to renew and evolve manufacturing toward the post-COVID world,” Fernando Colas, OMRON’s newly appointed CEO for the Industrial Automation Business in EMEA comments. “In addition to responding to technological innovations and changes in products and manufacturing methods, we must focus on SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), the diversification of people's values, and the wellbeing of working people.” Colas continues. OMRON’s booth at Hannover Messe will focus on enabling flexible manufacturing, as well ensuring workforce safety, product quality and sustainability.
Visitors can experience solutions based on robotics, machine vision, high-speed and high-precision control application technology, artificial intelligence, and data science, that innovate manufacturing sites so that people can focus on creative work. In addition of balancing productivity and energy efficiency, OMRON contributes to innovative manufacturing that meets the rapidly changing market needs while considering the global environment.
“At OMRON, we are also very excited to be part of the developments promoting sustainable mobility in Europe, especially in the field of electrification, fuel cell technology and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) solutions,” Dr Klaus Kluger, General Manager for Central Eastern Europe comments. “Visit us to discuss how innovative automation can be the cornerstone of future-oriented automotive manufacturing. You can also see our innovative automation technology in action in a real application for fuel cell production at the Dassault booth in hall 4, stand 34”.
Intelligent Cell Production Line
One example of innovative automation, shown for the first time at a European tradeshow, is OMRON’s new Intelligent Cell Production Line. It is one of the most innovative control, information, and manufacturing systems to support efficient and high-quality assembly and production. This concept has been tested and deployed at OMRON factories in Japan as well as in Shanghai, China as a system to achieve harmony between workers and machines.
Accelerated employee training and knowledge transfer, zero defect production and enhanced workflow efficiency are just three of the direct benefits that especially manufacturers with high-mix, low-volume (HMLV) operations, will glean from implementing this new line control approach.
