23 October 2016
At the PPMA Total Omron unveiled the its Industry 4.0 philosophy, and provided an insight to how the concept could look in reality by demonstrating a fully operational simulated Smart Factory.
In addition, Omron also formally announced its acquisition of Adept Technologies and gave further information of how Adept’s 49 best-in-class robots will enhance Omron’s portfolio. The Smart Factory demonstration featured three Adept robots, including two state-of-the-art autonomous indoor vehicle (AIV) Lynx robots.
Omron's ‘Innovation by Automation’ philosophy is based on three key pillars; Integrated Automation, Intelligent Automation and Interactive Automation, which together form the basis of a successful Industry 4.0 implementation.
To demonstrate that ‘Innovation by Automation’ is not just for a theoretical future and can translate into present reality, Omron incorporated its latest products into a real working Smart Factory at the exhibition.
