“You cannot create substantial competitive advantage without good software,” says Bryan Monty, automotive strategic account manager for Omron Automation Americas. “To truly optimize processes, companies need software that allows them to make automation simpler, more flexible and adaptable.”

Sysmac platform enables companies to automate without added complexity Omron recently consulted with several automotive manufacturers that were considering automation solutions. The companies varied in size, market focus and specific project goals, but each one was looking for an affordable and easy-to-implement automation strategy.

Omron’s Sysmac integrated automation platform is a tool to meet these objectives.

The Sysmac platform includes powerful machine automation controllers (MACs), intuitive human machine interfaces (HMIs), and fast networking via EtherCAT or Ethernet/IP. These complementary technologies support a range of advanced functions, including motion, safety, vision and robotics.

“For customers that want to standardize automation, the Sysmac platform is the way to go,” Monty says. “They can eliminate multiple products and applications and integrate automation, control, testing and data collection. The Sysmac platform makes deployment, training and support much easier.”
