Omron's Integrated Packaging Solutions at PPMA

29 July 2011

At this year’s PPMA, automation expert Omron showcased its integrated automation solutions that provided the packaging industry with flexible, efficient and cost-effective ways of addressing the ever-increasing competitive and regulatory pressures it faces

The central focus of the Omron stand was a working demonstration of one of the company’s recently introduced SCARA robots, which was complemented by vision systems that have exceptional text recognition capabilities and by products that embody the latest developments in sensor, safety and inspection technologies.

With the addition of SCARA robots to its range alongside its forthcoming Delta robots and its portfolio of automation products, Omron now offers complete automation solutions from a single supplier to machine builders in the packaging sector.

Visitors to the Omron stand can not only see a SCARA robot in operation but also discover how vision and conveyor tracking functions can be readily added to the company’s robotic systems, and how ease of integration with automation and supervisory systems is assured by the robot controllers’ support for a wide range of communications options, including Ethernet, DeviceNet and Profibus.

An acknowledged leader in the field of visual inspection solutions, Omron is also showing its latest vision systems at the PPMA Show, and is giving particular attention to automated checking of human-readable text. The company can offer OEM component solutions and full turnkey packages designed to ensure users never again face fines or damage to their reputation because of illegible or non-conformant human-readable text.

Among the range of sensor, safety and inspection solutions being shown on the Omron stand is the company’s unique SPU (storage and processing unit) for use with its CJ and CS programmable controller platforms.

The SPU allows real-time collection of production, process and inspection data across industrial networks such as DeviceNet and Ethernet/IP and makes this data readily accessible to enterprise level IT systems, via SQL, Oracle or Access databases. It is, therefore, ideal for use in OEE, WIP and track-and-trace applications.

Throughout the exhibition, automation experts from Omron will be available on the stand to provide information on the company’s products and technologies, to provide assistance to visitors trying out products in the stand’s demonstration and evaluation area, and to provide advice relating to visitors’ own specific application requirements.
