Industrial Automation


Bring innovation to manufacturing by automation,
to enrich lives of people all over the world.

People’s needs are diversified more and more in the world and product life cycles become shorter and shorter. To accommodate these modern trends, manufacturing sites must be agile, with the ability to change or update a production line at short lead-time. At OMRON, we are developing innovation in automation through solving various manufacturer’s issues to materialize our vision.


"innovative-Automation" represents OMRON's vision of a revitalized manufacturing industry.

“innovative-Automation” It’s a keyword for OMRON to develop future manufacturing together with customers. The future manufacturing that OMRON pursues can be indicated by three “i’s” of automation: that is, integrated, intelligent and interactive automation as follows.

  • “integrated automation” - Evolution in control
    By taking advantage of industry top level wide product lineup, OMRON continues to take initiatives to enhance productivity of manufacturers by pursuing high-speed and high-precision machine controls.
  • “intelligent automation” - Intelligence development
    OMRON utilizes factory data to its full potential and is learning from the integration of well-cultivated control techniques and pioneering AI and IoT to make the evolution of our machines and production lines a reality. We also apply AI and IoT to transform the experience, craftsmanship and other tacit knowledge of our seasoned engineers into explicit knowledge, with the goal of complete elimination of factory shutdowns and defects in mind.
  • “interactive automation” - New harmonization between humans and machines
    OMRON’s company philosophy, “machines should take care of machine work, and humans should enjoy the creative parts,” is put into practice in our manufacturing branches as well. We’re working towards a future of integrated manufacturing by making the best use of the strengths of machines, robots, and people to form a complete collaborative team.
