Advanced automation provider OMRON has demonstrated an array of advanced industrial automation for the automotive manufacturing sector at the ongoing Automotive Engineering Show (AES) in Chennai, India. Themed around the concept of ‘Sensing and Control + Think’, the OMRON booth is a window to its all key, progressive mid-range and high-end automation solutions from its ILOR + S (Input, Logic, Output, Robotics + Safety) portfolio- considered as the largest in the industry. The solutions cater to MSMEs as well as large auto manufacturing firms aiming to become more productive, efficient and safe as they strive to rise up the value chain and to match pace with the changing technologies and dynamics of the market.
The solutions on display
Robotics: world’s smartest and most productive Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles signifying Omron’s philosophy of creating collaboration between human beings and machines to increase productivity in manufacturing and logistics operations.
Traceability: one of the rising technologies in the automotive manufacturing sector to ensure ‘zero-defects’ manufacturing and tackle recalls by gaining complete real-time data-based control over the whole production process.
Sysmac Automation solution with IIoT: Helping to create connected shop floor, these solutions exemplify the best use of real-time sensor-based information in reducing downtime, improving the efficiency of product changeover and much more.
Safety: for complete risk management via fool-proof and supply machine and process safeguarding.
Motion Control: for enabling manufacturers to develop powerful integration capabilities.
“Considering these coordinates, there is a strong need to automate to help manufacturers scale up the value chain to match global standards and to ensure zero-defects manufacturing. One defective product may lead to recalls bringing financial loss, setbacks to credibility and risk to the safety of individuals- thus signifying the need of further penetration of automation technologies to make manufactures not only smarter but also more capable to make ‘world-class’ in India,” said Sameer Gandhi, Managing Director, OMRON Automation India.
