The Omron Automation Americas Factory of the Future, PACK EXPO 2021 at Booth #SU-7537

Omron is sending an operational connected warehouse and production facility to PACK EXPO 2021. The mini-factory was built to replicate typical primary and secondary packaging as well as end-of-line processes.

This mini-factory includes a next-generation mobile manipulator (MoMa) collaborative robot mounted to the LD-250 mobile robot, a pick and place robot, a SCARA robot, an AI-powered vision inspection system, a palletizer cobot, and other artificial intelligence and machine learning functionality. While these technologies are often implemented individually, Omron wants attendees to see what happens when its advanced automation technologies are connected into larger smart solutions.

Everything in the mini factory is connected by the Omoron Sysmac Automation Platform. Sysmac delivers standardization, which enables manufacturers to increase productivity, improve quality, maximize safety, and reduce costs. It combines powerful machine automation controllers such as the Omron NX controller with intuitive human machine interfaces (HMIs) and fast EtherNet/IP networking. Support for EtherCat means programmers can calculate speed and reaction times in advance.

The platform’s centerpiece is its Sysmac Studio automation software and when the software-based NA HMI is housed within an industrial PC, operators can configure, monitor, and program individual machines or entire manufacturing cells. Sysmac Studio includes a library of PLCopen function block objects that operators can drag and drop and associate with specific mechanical devices using a PLC.

In the mini-factory, the entire process will restart as soon as a box is fully loaded.
