OMRON Corporation (TSE: 6645, ADR: OMRNY) will introduce to the world on April 3, 2017, the third wave of factory automation (FA) control devices built on a common design platform for unified product specifications, for further innovation in control panel building.
Based on a wide range of products, OMRON has been continuing to work for the innovation of making control panels which house and control FA devices on the production front line.
OMRON unified the design and size of FA devices, and introduced products which are built with the company’s proprietary wiring technology “Push-In Plus Terminal Block” for device and control panel makers in need of “downsizing and space-saving” of FA devices and control panels, “expedited delivery” and “response to globalization.”
The first wave in April 2016 and the second wave in October 2016 of Value Design products were introduced. They have been adopted on the front line of manufacturing by more than 7,000 global companies and received a high evaluation. For example, a manufacturer of semiconductor production equipment reduced the control panel size by 30% and the wiring lead time by half, when they adopted our Value Design products.
The third wave of 36 models in 4 categories can achieve even simpler wiring with a wider product range. They are in high demand at client production sites which have adopted the first and second wave products.
