For more than 30 years Omron has been the preferred supplier of automation solutions to many of Europe’s packaging machine manufacturers.
Well-known for the quality and reliability of our products, we have also built a solid reputation as an innovator of advanced packaging systems. Recently, we launched a wide range of advanced packaging automation products, and introduced an entirely new control platform Sysmac – one that enables packaging engineers to work with one software language and one connection type.
On top of that, we opened Europe’s first “Packaging Automation Test Centre” in Barcelona: a seriously hi-tech facility where Omron customers can test and validate automation ideas before committing resources. These activities are rapidly making Omron the preferred supplier for more and more of Europe’s packaging machine manufacturers.
