Japan Smart Factory Expo invites Global Advanced Automation Companies

Reed Japan Exhibitions is introducing first Expo for Industrie 4.0 / Industrial Internet Technologies for “Smart Factory”.

All kinds of technologies and solutions for smart factory will be exhibited in Tokyo

"1st SMART FACTORY Expo" Exhibition for Industrie 4.0 / Industrial Internet Technologies
Dates: January 18 [Wed] - 20 [Fri], 2017, Venue: Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo, JAPAN
Supported by: Robot Revolution Initiative (RRI) / Industrial Value Chain Initiative (IVI)
According to the Japanese Market reports, the diversification of demands are growing in digitization of products and services, leading to modernization of production processes in domestic market, thus requiring innovation and diffusion of Smart technologies in Manufacturing to achieve a new generation of industrialization with in Japan.
Driven by the modern concept of IOT, Smart Factory , e-factory, industry 4.0 , Japanese companies appear to be dedicated to inventing new technologies and tools to enhance automation to ensure progress in the industrial sector. As the consequence of it, there are numerous ventures popping in IOT sector and as well existing and Technology giants have been showing up with techniques and technologies to enhance the Smart factory operation, support and production process for leaping the factories to fully for complete new smart things.
Following Japanese companies who are also member of Japan`s Robot Revolution Initiative are also seen introducing many products and services for enabling the trend. Mitsubishi Electric Hitachi, Fujitsu NEC, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries,Kawasaki Heavy Industries, IHI, Hitachi Zosen, apart from Automotive OEM`s a wide range of manufacturing-related 75 plus companies various organizations are already gaining the market share. 3D -Additive manufacturing is also embarking in Japanese factories to make complex products directly from 3D models using simple and largely automatic procedures. Additive manufacturing is becoming both cheaper and more effective.
Next-generation factory where advanced FA, IoT and energy saving systems are installed. It realizes more efficient and cost-effective production with such systems. All kinds of technologies and solutions for smart factory will be exhibited! "1st SMART FACTORY Expo" will be a very business-oriented exhibition where exhibitors can actively have business discussions with visitors.
All Global Companies in this domain are welcome to participate as exhibitor and or visitor to explore business opportunities Japan market has to offer in this domain.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
