Omron to Debut Autonomous Mobile Manipulator at PACK EXPO
The Omron Automation Americas booth at PACK EXPO 2019 in Las Vegas is slated to be a unique opportunity to explore near-future manufacturing equipment as part of a wide-ranging, interactive demo. In particular, the company’s new autonomous mobile manipulator and the integration between Omron’s TM Series collaborative robot and Robotiq’s vacuum grippers are innovations to see.
Omron’s autonomous mobile manipulation solution supports flexible manufacturing and improves operational efficiency by integrating self-navigating LD mobile robots with Omron’s collaborative robot arm.
Robotiq’s AirPick and EPick vacuum grippers are now compatible with Omron collaborative robots. These fully customizable vacuum grippers provide an effective, low-cost solution that helps automate applications such as machine tending, pick-and-place, packaging and assembly.
The exhibit will feature a broad range of advanced pick-and-place technology, laser engraving, mobile and collaborative robots, and more — all working under human guidance to customize and package a product for event goers. Also, PACK EXPO’s brand-new Robotics Zone will include a dice-playing collaborative robot created by Omron.
The Robotics Zone will also be the site of a presentation given by Keith Kersten, Industry Marketing Group Manager for Omron Automation Americas, on the topic “A future that works: The role of automation in the future of packaging.” At 1 pm on September 23 and at 2 pm on September 25.
