At this year’s PPMA Show, automation expert Omron is showcasing integrated automation solutions that provide 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 is a working demonstration of one of the company’s recently introduced SCARA robots, which is complemented by vision systems that have exceptional text recognition capabilities and by products that embody latest developments in sensor, safety and inspection technologies.

With the addition of SCARA robots to its range alongside its forthcoming Delta robots and its comprehensive 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 both OEM component solutions and full turnkey packages designed to ensure that users never again face fines or damage to their reputation because of illegible or non-conformant human-readable text.

Among the wide 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.
