Omron brings the factory of the future to PPMA 2019
On stand B36, Omron will make the UK debut of its flexible production system at this year’s PPMA Total Show.
The 60 square meter display will present a wide range of Omron’s automation and robotic solutions. It will showcase an end-to-end flexible automated manufacturing process, giving attendees an ambitious, in-depth look at the possibilities of the future of production. The groundbreaking system is driven by the industry-wide move towards more customizable, personalized manufacturing.
As a component of Omron’s flexible production line demo, attendees will be able to see a Mobile Manipulator (MoMa) hybrid concept. The MoMa is a new breed of robots with all the benefits and none of the limitations of collaborative and mobile robots. It consists of a mobile, wheeled base, a highly dexterous collaborative robotic arm, together with integrated machine vision technology. This is Omron’s concept for the future of industrial robotics, and offers a glimpse of what’s possible when previously disconnected robot systems are unified into one.
Attendees will be able to see MoMa in action at the Omron booth B36 at the PPMA Total Show. They can place orders into the system and watch as the MoMa inspects the final specification in real-time.
