News from Omron Electronics:
Future-proofing SMEs with cobots
January 2024, Motion Control & Drives, Omron Electronics

Many countries around the world are likely to experience skill shortages over the coming decade, especially technical specialists. At the same time, product lifecycles are becoming shorter. Collaborative robots are easy to set up, and offer a quick and cost-effective solution.

Flexible transport solutions for materials handling
January 2024, Motion Control & Drives, Omron Electronics

Omron has added a Selectable Autonomy functionality to the core software for its line of autonomous mobile robots

Robot-assisted workflows in the food industry
January 2024, Motion Control & Drives, Omron Electronics

Producers are increasingly having to juggle between longer term range proliferation centred on consumer demands, and range reduction caused by the rapidly changing buying habits of retailers and consumers. This has resulted in them having to be even more agile with existing assets.

Predictive maintenance can drive costs down
November 2023, Sensors & Transducers, Omron Electronics

Unplanned machine downtime is a huge headache for businesses. To combat this, manufacturers are looking for innovative solutions that go beyond traditional preventive maintenance.

Decoding the world of direct part marks
October 2023, Data Acquisition & Telemetry, Omron Electronics

OMRON has unveiled its latest breakthrough, the V450-H ultra-rugged handheld scanner. Tailored specifically for industrial DPM reading, this innovative device sets new industry standards for durability and performance.

Artificial intelligence: Don’t call me stupid
August 2023, IT in Manufacturing, Omron Electronics

Ten years ago, I was quite proud of how smart the machines in our factory were. Now, with my current definition of smart, I realise they were quite stupid. Why? Because although they were doing what they were designed to do, the minute they encountered anything unexpected or out of the ordinary, they were stumped.

The mismatch between perception and reality
July 2023, Motion Control & Drives, Omron Electronics

Industrial robots are generally designed for one of three tasks: high-speed movements, high-precision placement, or high-payload movements. The risks to workers during operation are readily apparent.

First sanitisation robots in South Africa
July 2023, Motion Control & Drives, Omron Electronics

Patient and healthcare worker safety in South African hospitals is set to reach a new level of excellence with the launch of the revolutionary HERO21 robotic sanitisation system.

Omron’s EtherCAT capabilities and solutions
June 2023, Fieldbus & Industrial Networking, Omron Electronics

EtherCAT is becoming the most popular machine protocol. Unmatched performance, the highest precision, and real openness make the difference compared to other Ethernet industrial protocols.
