Next-generation Industry 4.0 Automation Solutions Equipped with Digital Twin
improvement in field engineers’ efficiency
reduction in man hours required for on-site quality inspection
OMRON Corporation is an automation company with its core competencies in Sensing & Control + Think technology and is engaged in a wide range of businesses including control equipment, electronic components, social systems, healthcare, and the environment.
In a manufacturing facility, the process of simulating Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) for decision-making on their deployment is time-consuming and resource-intensive. The client needs an efficient and accurate solution to simulate AGV behavior, evaluate different deployment scenarios, and make informed decisions regarding their implementation.
Digital Twin: 3D Replica
By converting Solidwork files into 3D assets, Omron creates precise 1:1 scale replicas. These replicas are seamlessly integrated into PC and Extended Reality, enabling engineers and designers to explore intricate details. This fosters collaboration and informed decision-making, ultimately enhancing efficiency and delivering exceptional products to customers.
Real Time Monitoring with Open-RMF Integration
Open-RMF integration enables real-time monitoring, providing continuous updates on system performance and behavior. Businesses gain comprehensive insights for data-driven decision-making, optimizing operations for enhanced efficiency and reliability.
Data Analytics and Simulation
Data Analytics and Simulation empower businesses to leverage advanced technologies for enhanced decision-making. Through Augmented Reality, live environments can be visualized with dynamic heatmaps, providing real-time insights and improving situational awareness. Additionally, digital twin simulations enable the accurate representation of robot movements in various spaces, facilitating effective planning and optimization.
