The company will also show how real-time data interchange between production-line operations and enterprise-wide IT systems can meet Industry 4.0 expectations.
“Over the past 12 months, the term Industry 4.0 has worked its way through the entire supply chain,” says Omron marketing manager Dan Rossek. “As automation components grow in intelligence, the demand for ‘big data’ integration between the factory shop floor and top floor has also dramatically increased: linking of individual pieces of line equipment with enterprise-level databases in two-way real-time communication.”
On show, Omron's latest control platform Sysmac, can create, integrate and act on this information at high speed, making best use of the data made visible by processing/packaging machines and the information transferred to and from higher-level IT systems.
This approach promises real benefits for flexible food and drink operations, says Omron.
