Omron Opens Nordic Automation Center
Omron Europe B.V.Hoofddorp, the Netherlands, opened its new Nordic Automation Center (NAC) in Malmö, Sweden on 26 October 2017 with a day of special activities aimed at illustrating how the Center can act as a community hub for testing and knowledge sharing.
The facility gives customers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland access to engineering and technical resources in one centralized location. “As part of our i-Automation strategy, the NAC helps manufacturers prepare for the ‘digital factory,” says Håkan Nordkvist, Omron’s Nordic CEO. “The facility provides a dedicated automation test and demonstration facility for the region’s customers."
During the opening celebrations talks and speeches were complemented by live demonstrations, e.g. a demonstration of robotic cells with a mobile robot moving between them. Other demos featured server systems, Sysmac, and a novel vibration suppression demo. This controls the robot’s motion to a high degree, as illustrated by moving a glass filled with water and bringing it to a sudden stop, without spilling a drop.
