The TM cobot includes a smart camera in every robotic arm. This technology is called "eye in hand," and allows you to use the TM cobot in more flexible applications than traditional robots.

Omron TM collaborative robot

Omron TM cobots boost production and reduce employee fatigue by automating repetitive tasks such as machine tending, loading and unloading, assembly, screw driving, gluing, testing or soldering.

This unique solution simplifies setup and reduces the complexity of rapid product changeovers. It can be integrated and fed by autonomous mobile robots, direct conveyor or manually fed.

Omron's powerful controller, built around an Intel chip, in one single software environment to handle robotics, safety, big data, connectivity and motion. Substantial amounts of memory and the ability to do acquisitions and transmissions very fast.

Sysmac machine automation controller

Our powerful MAC, built around an Intel chip, controls robotics, safety, big data, connectivity and motion in one single software environment with loads of memory for fast performance.

For proof of concept, a 3D printer comes in handy, allowing our team to concept gripers for robots, brackets and items for applications to make us more efficient and keep costs down on a proof of concept in the beginning for prototype stage.

From applying the marks to communicating the data to the enterprise level, Omron’s traceability technologies comprise a complete solution.

End-to-end traceability solution

Our traceability technologies ensure quality, consistency and compliance. We help track parts with DPMs, labels and RFID and with systems to verify, read and communicate (MVRC) data.

We also manufacture our own laser marker, unique to the market, so you don’t have to have multiple vendors to handle the vision, the control and laser marking. We do it all.

The Detroit Proof of Concept Center houses several of our innovative mobile robots that self-navigate throughout dynamic environments. Check out our LD 250 in action.

Autonomous mobile robots

We have several autonomous mobile robots at the Detroit POC. AMRs self-navigate throughout dynamic environments designed for moving material in challenging environments.

In-house vision lab for testing

The Detroit PoC features a dedicated space for application engineers to bring in parts and test applications, especially for vision and sensing, where controlled lighting is needed.

Training room for customer use

We have a large space to train customers and partners as well as host internal training and corporate training. We also welcome our customers to host meetings of their own or conduct internal training for their organizations.

Upcoming events
