Omron Automation Americas, a provider of end-to-end solutions for industrial automation, will be at the upcoming Automate Show to demonstrate applications for the factory of today and that of the future. Omron plans to display diverse technologies, including systems for traceability and flexible manufacturing.
The biennial Automate Show gives attendees the opportunity to see many of the world’s cutting-edge manufacturing technologies in action. Taking place from April 8 to 11 in Chicago, it provides an opportunity for Omron Automation to showcase technologies that it said will help manufacturers improve productivity, flexibility, and human-machine interaction.
In Booth 8737, Omron plans to present its Factory Harmony exhibit, a multifaceted display that it said will provide a vision of the manufacturing floor of the future. Each demo in the exhibit is designed to illustrate ways in which machines can collaborate more effectively with humans on the factory floor.
The Factory Harmony exhibit includes a fully integrated, vision-guided robotics pick-and-place demo that shows the potential for machines to manage finely detailed work with speed and accuracy as part of a flexible manufacturing system, as well as a traceability demo including laser marking and robotic technologies. Flexibility and traceability are key targets of Omron Automation.
Other robotic solutions on display at Automate include Omron’s Series collaborative robot, a flexible solution for human-machine collaboration, and the LD Series mobile robots that move materials flexibly throughout the factory. Both products are intended to help manufacturers meet growing demands for customization without completely reconfiguring their production lines.
The Omron Automation booth will also feature a demo of its most advanced machine vision technology as well as its safety product offerings. In total, the Factory Harmony exhibit demonstrates a new standard for human-machine collaboration to help manufacturers enjoy improvements in productivity, efficiency, quality and worker satisfaction.
