Omron’s “i-Automation” concept is to provide intelligent, integrated and interactive solutions that unlock untapped potential in terms of productivity and quality in industrial processes. Its key focus is the development of interoperable solutions that facilitate the digitalization of manufacturing in the context of Industry 4.0.

As part of its i-Automation strategy, the company will be demonstrating its commitment to supporting customers in the move to Industry 4.0 with demonstrations of its latest robotics and automation solutions at two key events happening this Autumn.

First, Omron will attend the Hi Tech & Industry Scandinavia Fair taking place at the MCH Messecenter Herning from the 3rd to the 5th of October 2017, showcasing autonomous, driverless transport systems that move independently between working cells. The robots will feature integrated navigation and movement controllers plus software-based map generation, that allows them to safely navigate a defined work space without the need for specialized infrastructure. Other demos will highlight safety, automated optical inspections and panel solutions.

Next, Omron will officially inaugurate its new Nordic Automation Center at a grand opening ceremony on 26 October 2017.

The facility will give customers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland access to engineering and technical resources in one centralized location. It also creates a dedicated local site for showcasing the company’s technical capabilities, as well as serving as a university-style laboratory where customers can collaborate, test and explore Industry 4.0 solutions.

The opening ceremony will show how manufacturers can get ready for the ‘digital factory’. This will be brought about by combining robotics with AI, a key trend being adopted in manufacturing.

“By strengthening our focus on the Nordic region, Omron is better supporting customers to adopt Industry 4.0,” said Håkan Nordkvist, Omron’s Nordic CEO. “Our leading position in robotics and AI gives them the integration, interaction and intelligence to stay competitive in manufacturing.”
