OMRON Automation has launched the NX1 series – a machine automation controller that boosts productivity while leveraging information in a manufacturing unit. The controller is engineered especially for the manufacturers to improve productivity and address manufacturing innovation challenges including the strengthening of quality control and flexible safety measures. Based in Kyoto, Japan, OMRON Corporation is a diversified company with business units producing industrial automation products, electronic components, and healthcare equipment and ticketing systems.
The solution is programmed to support next-generation requirements that need integration of control and information in an industrial set-up to further improve productivity and connectivity. It collects synchronised data from sensors, servomotors, and units mounted to the controller within the same fixed cycle saving the overall operation time, and at the same time executing high-speed data processing tasks.
“By using the NX1 Series, OMRON strives to create a connected manufacturing site where customers can achieve productivity improvements, real-time traceability, full inspections, and enhancement of safety measures at the same time. This finds great utility in Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals and Automotive manufacturing industries. We will continue to keep our customers first by these value additions to our ‘largest-in-the-industry’ portfolio of world-class industrial automation solutions,” said Sameer Gandhi, MD, OMRON Automation India.
The new launch is in line with OMRON’s strategic concept for smart factories called as ‘innovative-Automation’, consisting of three innovations or “i’s”– “integrated” (control evolution), “intelligent” (development of intelligence by ICT), and “interactive” (new harmonization between people and machines), said the company.
