Omron engineers will work together with customers, sharing engineering skills and knowledge to master those new technologies. Each new Innovation Lab will include a range of innovative technologies including fixed and mobile robotics systems. The goal of these labs is to better prepare manufacturers for today’s Smart Manufacturing opportunities and explore the use of advanced artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of things (IoT) and robotics for their operation, especially those in the food & commodities, packaging and automotive industries as well as those involved with mechanical and plant engineering.
Customers’ own production needs explored
The new Innovation Labs address the particular needs of an individual customer in local language. They provide concrete evidence that integrated robotics and automation can reduce costs, enhance quality, and increase productivity. The aim is to create a “proof of concept” for the customer, one that can be tangibly implemented in production. In effect the Innovation Labs bridge the gap between theory and practice. Each lab includes several robot cells with SCARA and six-axis robots, which are supported by a mobile robot to demonstrate intralogistics processes.
