Demand For 100% Sortation & Placement
Accuracy At Faster Production Speed

Material sorting and picking is a repetitive and highly labor intensive task. Manual handling errors can significantly slow down production speed and delivery. Therefore, it is increasingly important to automate this process, in order to achieve 100% accuracy in sortation & placement at faster speed.

Operational Challenges & How to Address Them

Repetitive, Labor Intensive Tasks Due To Manual Intervention

Robotics in almost all walks of life are becoming a familiar aspect of society. Productivity, efficiency and hygiene can all be dramatically improved by the correct adoption of robotic solutions. OMRON Robotic Automation Solution is designed to address the following needs:

Repeatability Of Product Placement in 24/7 Operating Environment

People are efficient at packaging small, short or customised production runs. However, having repeatable runs are a key factor in product placement efficiency, especially in a 24/7 operating environment with high production demands or changing recipes.

OMRON Robotic Automation Solution is designed to automate these tedious and monotonous tasks with 100% repeatability and accuracy in a 24/7 operating environment. It ensures consistency in product quality, without compromising on speed and throughput.

Repetitive Motion Over Long Duration

Continuous manual lifting and loading of base materials has the potential to cause ergonomic issues. Repetitive motions such as lifting, bending, labeling, inspecting, and orienting are the most ergonomically challenging for employees.

By automating these repetitive, labor-intensive tasks, manufacturers can reduce costs associated with employee productivity issues and absenteeism from work due to injury.

High Production Cost

On high speed packaging lines, the frequency of loading base materials can be so fast that it requires constant attention, which in turn requires additional manpower. Manual handling would increase production cost.

By automating these tasks with OMRON Robotic Automation Solution, it significantly reduces cost associated with human error and additional headcount. Workers are freed from repetitive-motion activities to focus on higher value tasks.

Consistent Product Integrity

Workers are subjected to external environmental factors, which can be transferred during direct contact with raw food e.g. perspiration, saliva and blood — this may risk foodborne illnesses.

By automating product sortation and placement (with no human intervention), operators can meet production demands without compromising on hygiene and quality standards. Harsh wash-down, high-pressure cleanings set at regular intervals, and after each recipe shift, can significantly minimize contamination.

  • Keep food safe from damage or contamination
  • Protect brand image and product integrity
  • Minimise food safety issues
Why Omron

Our Business Values

Increased Efficiency In
Sortation & Placement

Robots can perform tasks in conditions that may be hazardous to human workers—they do not get fatigued from strenuous tasks, and are not affected by heat, dust, humidity or other challenging work environments.

With OMRON Robotic Automation Solution, it significantly increases the pick and place efficiency as it is capable of handling repetitive motion in a 24/7 operating environment with 100% repeatability, speed and accuracy. Employees can focus on higher value tasks that require critical thinking.

No Competitive Offering
Is USDA Certified

The only parallel robot on the market with four arms that provides flexibility of working on a larger operational area, Omron Quattro is the only parallel robot which is USDA certified. Constructed with materials that are safe for primary food handling (e.g. meat and poultry processing), it makes it more hygienically-advanced than any existing robots on the market.

Industry’s First Complete & Fully
Integrated Robotics Automation Solution

If you’re involved in manufacturing or packaging, you know that implementing and maintaining a robotic automated solution is no small task. The complexity starts with using technologies from different vendors - You need a trusted system integration partner to integrate them into a single cohesive solution. This can get complicated, time-consuming and expensive during product changeover or when something goes wrong.

OMRON offers the industry’s first complete and fully integrated robotic automation solution. With OMRON single source solution, all components are designed to work together to maximise line efficiency in sortation and placement. Implementation and changeovers are faster, easier, and hassle-free than before.
