As we face the challenge of limited energy resources, it is crucial to prioritize efficiency and maximize value. Our goal is to create resilient manufacturing sites that achieve both a decarbonized society through reduced energy consumption and sustainable business growth through improved productivity. We believe in sharing our knowledge and expertise on energy productivity to empower our customers in the manufacturing industry to join us in our pursuit of sustainable manufacturing. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter, more sustainable future.

Practical Examples of Improving Energy Productivity

1. OMRON Ayabe Factory

Energy productivity was increased by approximately 1.6 times through the continuous centralized monitoring of environmental and production information and through accelerated energy control.

At OMRON's Ayabe Factory we have been committed to protecting the environment for over a decade. Through continuous centralized monitoring of both environmental and production data and the implementation of advanced energy control techniques, we have successfully increased our energy productivity by 1.6 times. By carefully monitoring power consumption and production information, we were able to identify areas for potential energy reduction and implement effective control measures. As a result, power consumption in the cleanroom decreased by 40%, and we optimized the control of other energy-consuming equipment, leading to a 35% increase in factory shipments and a 15% reduction in power consumption on production lines.


Realization of an 8% increase in productivity using the existing equipment

In response to the rapidly increasing market demands in the food industry, we addressed the urgent issue of production capacity expansion by realizing improved productivity using the existing equipment.

Powering through the energy and fuel crisis with automation

07 December, 2022 To counter rising prices and meet environmental targets, industrial enterprises should explore how automation technologies from a single source might help contribute to their sustainability strategy.High energy and fuel prices are putting a strain on both households and industry. Not only is the situation negatively impacting financial plans and wallets, but the excessive prices are forcing some companies to cease production. According to Make UK 42% of manufacturers surveyed said that their electricity bills have increased by 100% in the past 12 months and 32% said that gas prices have increased by over 100% in the past year. A worrying 12% of manufacturers have already made job cuts as a direct result of increased energy bills.The war in Ukraine, Covid-19 pandemic, and gas pricing are only a few of the causes of the crisis, which impacts all sectors and has an impact on everything from power prices to supply chains. What should manufacturing companies consider now? Comprehensive automation strategies are essential for greater flexibility and energy efficiency. This includes innovative robotics paired with sensor and vision technology as well as artificial intelligence – AI at the Edge. In addition, real-time data from production plants can assist with detecting anomalies and improving overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
