At Omron, we like to listen to our customers. We could spend all day listening to their needs – it gives us ideas. And because we’ve been listening to our packaging machine customers for more than 20 years, you won’t be surprised that we’ve had quite a lot of good ideas.
But rather than us tell you about them, we thought you would prefer hearing it from people like you: our customers.

Factory automation: four tips for the future of food & beverage manufacturing
16 July, 2020 The coronavirus pandemic has posed major challenges to organisations of all types and sizes. In the food and commodity industry, companies have faced significantly reduced consumption and disrupted supply chains, while at-home consumption increased, and out-of-home consumption came near to a standstill. But how can manufacturers adapt their business strategies and production processes both now and in the longer term? The pandemic may provide an opportunity for rethinking outdated processes and procedures and enhancing them with concepts such as innovative robotics, sensor technology and holistic automation strategies.
Automation with robotics increases production by 40% at BOLÇİ

Autonomous bin picking with a collaborative mobile robot
16 October, 2019 Our TM collaborative robot provides a unique solution to easily automate applications such as picking and packing that, traditionally performed by humans, have been challenging to automate. As part of the TM series launch, we also released a mobile-compatible model, which seamlessly integrates into Omron’s LD series autonomous mobile robot. Combined with a 3D vision camera mounted directly onto the collaborative robot, this enables for example e-commerce companies to automate more complex tasks. This includes pick and place of various items onto a tray or container, as well as connecting production processes with the autonomous mobile robots for flexible manufacturing and materials handling.
