OMRON and NEURA Robotics Partner to Unveil New Cognitive Robot and Seamless Integration of Automation Technologies at Automate 2024

OMRON and Neura Robotics to unveil new line of cognitive robots and advanced AI-driven automation technologies at Automate.

OMRON, a leading solution provider in industrial automation, and Neura Robotics GmbH, an innovation leader in cognitive robotics, recently announced their strategic partnership aimed at revolutionizing manufacturing efficiency through advanced AI-driven cognitive automation technologies. This collaboration will be highlighted at the upcoming Automate trade show in Chicago May 6-9 at McCormick Place, booth #2267, where the two companies will introduce the new OMRON intelligent Cognitive Robot (iCR) series.

The OMRON iCR, derived from NEURA Robotics‘ MAiRA line, leverages integrated sensors and AI technologies to address the needs of industrial customers for flexibility, productivity, and efficiency. These robots boast an optional integrated 3D vision sensor, intuitive user-friendly interface, and NEURA's advanced safety architecture for improved performance and safety.
The potential of the new robot will be showcased at Automate through a 3D bin-picking demonstration. This demo will provide an insight into how AI-enabled, cognitive automation can enhance and redefine the efficiency and flexibility of manufacturing processes. It will also showcase the impressive integration of OMRON‘s all-in-one Sysmac control platform, highlighting its ability to streamline complex operations.
David Reger, founder, CEO and visionary at NEURA Robotics, reflected on the partnership by saying, "Our strategic alliance with Omron marks the beginning of a new era in industrial automation. This is another important step towards our goal of
revolutionizing the global robotics market. With the intelligent Cognitive Robot iCR we are removing usage barriers and multiplying possible applications for robotics in automation because they can act autonomously, recognize people safely and anticipate their actions. Thanks to our technology, these key requirements for the humanoid future of robotics are already a reality in industry today. By launching the iCR, we aim to significantly influence the future of manufacturing across all geographies and establish new benchmarks in the industry."
Olivier Welker, President and CEO of Omron Robotics and Safety Technologies Inc. Also expressed his enthusiasm, "We are thrilled to announce this next step in our partnership with NEURA. The OMRON iCR represents our commitment to pushing the boundaries of industrial automation and driving innovation in the manufacturing sector. We are confident in our ability to deliver state-of-the-art solutions that will meet the evolving needs of our customers and further establish OMRON as a leader in automation. "
Omron and NEURA Robotics invite all attendees at Automate to engage with their technologies, share insights, and discuss the future potential of automation in their manufacturing environments.
