Innovating production sites to build a sustainable future
Market globalization, changing consumer needs, carbon neutrality goals, digitalization and other advances in production technology; birthrate decline and population aging; the evolving values of factory workers— These are just some of the rapid changes bombarding the manufacturing industry. To keep pace with these changes and cater to social needs essential to sustainable development, the manufacturing site must overcome several dilemmas.
OMRON solves many different challenges related to such social issues the production site faces with the solutions we create by synergizing and advancing three approaches to innovation in automation; Integrated (advanced control), Intelligent, and Interactive (advanced human-machine collaboration) technologies. That is our i-Automation! concept for manufacturing innovation.
OMRON’s goal is to help create a sustainable society by implementing sustainable automation that can co-exist with the global environment and deliver high worker satisfaction, while also driving the advanced evolution of manufacturing. Central to this endeavor are our state-of-the-art i-Automation! products, built on our three new concepts for manufacturing: “Autonomation Beyond Human Ability,” “Advanced Collaboration Between Human and Machines,” and “Digital Engineering Innovation.”
