Omron to showcase robotic manipulator and vacuum grippers at PACK EXPO

The Omron Automation Americas booth (LS-5970) at PACK EXPO 2019 in Las Vegas will explore near-future manufacturing equipment as part of a wide-ranging, interactive demo. In particular, the company’s new autonomous mobile manipulator and the integration between Omron’s TM Series collaborative robot and Robotiq’s vacuum grippers are innovations to see.

  • The autonomous mobile manipulation solution supports flexible manufacturing and improves operational efficiency by integrating self-navigating LD mobile robots with Omron’s collaborative robot arm.
  • Robotiq’s AirPick and EPick vacuum grippers are now compatible with Omron collaborative robots. These fully customizable vacuum grippers provide an effective, low-cost solution that helps automate applications such as machine tending, pick-and-place, packaging and assembly.

The exhibit will feature a broad range of advanced pick-and-place technology, laser engraving, mobile and collaborative robots and more — all working under human guidance to customize and package a product for attendees.

In addition, Omron Automation Americas Marketing Group Manager Keith Kersten will present “A future that works: The role of automation in the future of packaging” at 1 p.m. Sept. 23 and again at 2 p.m. Sept. 25.

PACK EXPO Las Vegas is Sept. 23-25, 2019 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
