Industrial Automation

Manufacturing Innovation that only OMRON can deliver

Diversifying consumer needs, labor shortage, and other challenges to the manufacturing industry are intensifying by the day across the world.

OMRON tackle these challenges through three innovations: “integrated (control evolution)”, “intelligent (developing intelligence through ICT)”, and “interactive (human-machine collaboration)”. This is our value generation concept “i-Automation!”

Our i-Automation! solutions enable anyone to easily replicate master craftsmanship. They also create production lines where machines can continue to learn and develop on their own. Machines understand and assist humans. This is a kind of Manufacturing Innovation that only OMRON can deliver, with over 200,000 products and on-site support capabilities.

The 3-“i” Approach to Manufacturing Innovation


Control evolution

Enabling replication of ultra-high speed/precision control easily for anyone
OMRON finely coordinates its extensive collection of more than 200,000 products with the unique control software to provide over 170 kinds of control applications that enable easy replication of advanced craftsmanship, such as ultra-high speed machine control and ultra-high precision processing.


Developing intelligence through ICT

Manufacturing system that continues to learn and develop by making full use of production site data
Our solutions visualize the production site through nearly 100,000 IoT control devices and make full use of production site data with unique AI technology. Our goal is to create downtime-free production lines and defect-free production facilities through measures such as remote predictive maintenance and near-human sensory inspections.


New human-machine collaboration

An ultra-flexible means of production where machines open new possibilities for human workers

OMRON solutions enable coordination between machines and humans by coupling human labor with IoT, collaborative robots, and other technology. Our goal is to realize an ultra-flexible means of production where machines understand and assist humans.
