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.
