OMRON Opens New AUTOMATION CENTER in Tokyo
- Flagship FA Technology Center That Brings About Innovation to Production Floor through Co-creation with Customers
KYOTO, Japan, Jan.24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- OMRON Corporation, based in Kyoto, Japan, announced the January 22 opening of AUTOMATION CENTER TOKYO (ATC-TOKYO) in Shinagawa, Tokyo, where corporate customers join OMRON to find solutions to their manufacturing issues. The 37th ATC facility in the world, ATC-TOKYO is OMRON's flagship factory automation (FA) technology center, where model production floors are built within the world's largest* ATC facility to allow customers to experience and test state-of-the-art FA that seamlessly integrates AI, IoT, robotics, and other cutting-edge technologies. At ATC-TOKYO, customers can witness manufacturing developments made possible by "innovative-Automation," OMRON's unique manufacturing innovation concept that facilitates solutions to issues facing manufacturers around the world.
*In terms of floor area among all of OMRON's ATCs as of January 2020
At ATC-TOKYO, customers are invited to test for themselves customized solutions to issues that they encounter on production floors, which tap into innovative technologies and applications created through an optimal combination of OMRON's more than 200,000 different types of control devices. In the seminar room, customers can avail themselves of technical training, which they may need to introduce devices of their choice. Adjacent to ATC-TOKYO is AUTOMATION CENTER TOKYO POC LAB (POC-TOKYO), where customers can conduct demonstration tests in a simulated usage environment to verify processes using various robots, such as collaborative robots and mobile robots, and devices that they have brought in. Also in the vicinity is a development function working on the latest technology, making ATC-TOKYO a one-stop co-creation solution center where customers can not only "experience" cutting-edge manufacturing technologies but also "demonstrate," "learn skills for," and "develop" devices that they need.
Amid the major transition on production floors, manufacturing businesses are encountering the rapid changes in social needs, that is, the ongoing shift toward low-volume, high-mix production (how), cultivation of skilled workers (who), and simultaneous start-up of multiple locations (where), while at the same time AI, robotics, and other technological innovations are accelerating the advancement of seeds. OMRON partners with its customers to come up with innovative solutions to their manufacturing issues and help them to renovate the way they manufacture, thus solving social issues and enriching the lives of people the world over. The flagship ATC facility, ATC-TOKYO, will take the lead in extending the frontiers of manufacturing through innovation.
