PACK EXPO 2018 - Omron to Unveil New Collaborative Robot, Solutions in Traceability, Flexible Manufacturing and More

Decision makers seeking comprehensive automation solutions for food, beverage and pharmaceutical packaging applications need look no further than Booth N-4740 at PACK EXPO 2018. Omron will be displaying exciting new technologies including sensing, control, safety, vision, motion and robotics that will help manufacturers upgrade their traceability systems and streamline their flexible production lines.  This is essential to compete successfully in an industry where high variety and extensive customization is the norm.

Flexible manufacturing and customization are especially critical topics in the packaging industry today, as companies consistently demonstrate how the ability to diversify and personalize packaging sharpens their competitive advantage. Below are just a couple of exciting examples of Omron's flexible and interactive technology:

  • New collaborative robots - The new line of collaborative are safe, simple to program, and easy to integrate with other equipment, representing a big step towards creating an intelligent manufacturing environment where humans and machines work in harmony.
  • Upgraded Pick-and-Place demo - This will present several technologies designed to facilitate customization, including the high-speed, high-precision Quattro robot. These robotics and other technologies making up the demo will show how intelligent, modular design can create reusable functions and subsystems that improve application flexibility.

With the 2017 acquisition of Microscan, a company known for its high-performance barcode reading, barcode verification, machine vision and data connectivity solutions, Omron now has an unmatched traceability portfolio that covers marking, reading, verification and data transfer. The traceability demo at PACK EXPO will highlight how Omron's technology can minimize the impact of recalls and maximize productivity by providing real-time data on all supplier materials, machinery, operators and processes involved in production. When implemented, these technologies can ensure regulatory compliance, boost quality and safeguard brand reputation.

One more key theme of Omron's booth will be "factory of the future" solutions – integrated, intelligent and interactive uses of automation technologies that will keep applications future-proof. The popular mobile robots from Omron will make an appearance to demonstrate how autonomous, self-navigating vehicles can maximize productivity in fast-paced environments while requiring minimal input from human workers.

Omron's specialty lies in providing fully integrated solutions that minimize design time, maximize uptime, ensure speedy deployment and increase the overall ROI. Each PACK EXPO demo is designed to show how Omron technologies work seamlessly together to simultaneously maximize the productivity, quality and safety of any application. Manufacturers interested in implementing a complete solution for flexible production lines and robust traceability systems should visit Booth N-4740 to discuss their options with Omron's experts.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
