Omron brings working warehouse and production facility to PACK EXPO 2021, showcasing a practical strategy for combining smart automation solutions to create a connected environment.

Omron Automation Americas, a global leader in providing advanced automation
solutions for the food, beverage, packaging, and consumer goods industries,
will operate a working warehouse and production facility during PACK EXPO
2021 in Las Vegas. This mini factory, built completely with Omron
technology, will demonstrate how connected sensors, machines, and processes
enable plant operators to identify and solve common-to-complex challenges.

“Connected smart solutions enable plant operators to collect and visualize
data at the machine, line, and plant levels and then make decisions in
real-time-even on-the-fly,” says Laura Studwell, Food, Beverage, & Packaging
Industry Marketing Manager for Omron. “Integrators, machine builders, and
packaging and processing companies need this flexibility. Everything has to
be designed to connect if you want to go-live quickly.”

Omron will demonstrate the value of its smart solutions using a scaled down
warehouse and production facility to replicate primary and secondary
packaging as well as end-of-line processes. The mini factory will use
advanced Omron technologies such as a next-generation mobile manipulator
(MoMa) collaborative robot mounted to a mobile base, pick and place
robotics, a palletizer, and an AI-powered vision inspection solution.

“The workflow is simple,” says Studwell. “It illustrates how Omron has a
complete strategy for delivering real-time operational insight, dynamic
process control, and seamless data exchange.”

All components will be synchronized and controlled by the Omron Sysmac
automation platform, which is ideal for increasing connectivity throughout
the plant and enterprise for IIoT applications as well as interoperability
with multiple machines.

Omron industry experts will be available throughout PACK EXPO to discuss
connected solutions packaging, managing diverse inventories, and other
pressing business challenges. To learn more about the smart solutions at the
