Omron Launches “Collaborative Robot Arm” with vision functionalities – Users can take automate more complex tasks http://japan-product.com/omron-robot-arm/ http://japan-product.com/omron-robot-arm/#comments Fri, 26 Oct 2018 18:31:04 +0000 JAPAN PRODUCTS http://japan-product.com/?p=22707 OMRON to Launch TM Series Collaborative Robot Accelerating The Harmonization of Humans and Machines

Date: Oct 25, 2018
Source: Omron Corporation

Omron Corp. has announced the global launch of the TM series collaborative robot family from October 26, 2018 in 40 countries in order to realize an innovative manufacturing environment where humans and machines work in harmony. With its various vision functionalities and simple, intuitive programming environment, OMRON will further enable safe, flexible, and collaborative manufacturing between human and machine.



Robot Arm with Vision System

As changing consumer trends continue to shorten product life cycles, manufacturers are increasingly looking to quickly and flexibly set up production lines to meet frequent product change-overs. In addition, as labor shortage becomes more “real” manufacturers are striving to automate the simpler and monotonous tasks, making it increasingly necessary to create a workplace where people can contribute with more creative tasks. OMRON’s TM series provides a unique solution to easily install a robot to automate applications such as picking, packing, and screwdriving which, although traditionally performed by humans, can be challenging to easily automate. As part of the TM series launch, OMRON will release a “mobile-compatible” model which will seamlessly integrate into the market leading LD series autonomous mobile robot. By integrating the mobile-ready TM series with the LD series, users can take automate more complex tasks such as pick and place onto a tray / into a container and flexibly automate by connecting processes with autonomous mobile robots.

Three Key Features of the TM Series Collaborative Robot

  1. Intuitive programming interface reduces programming time
    Reduced installation and setup times compared to traditional industrial robots. The flowchart based intuitive programming interface and easy teaching requires little to no previous robot programming experience.

  2. Integrated on-arm vision system reduces setup time
    The TM series comes with built-in vision and integrated lighting, allowing the user to capture products with a wide viewing angle. Equipped with image sensing functions such as pattern matching, bar code reading, and color identification, this robot system makes inspection, measurement and sorting applications extremely easy to set up out of the box.

  3. Conforms to all human / machine collaborative safety standards reducing installation time
    The TM series conforms with all safety standards that enable cooperation between humans and machines and can be safely operated around people without industrial safety fencing traditionally required for industrial robots, greatly reducing the installation time.
    (Conforms to safety requirements for industrial robots ISO10218-1 as well as safety requirements for collaborative industrial robots ISO/TS15066)

Product Summary

OMRON will introduce 12 robots in the TM series with a combination of the following specifications.

  • Arm length: 900 mm, 1100 mm, 1300 mm
  • Payload: 4 kg, 6kg, 12kg, 14kg
  • Power supply: AC, DC
  • Conforming or not conforming to SEMI S2 Safety Guidelines



Collaborative Arm Robot TM series



Placed on Mobile Work Station

With the addition of the TM series collaborative robot to the product lineup, OMRON will further enable safe, flexible, and collaborative manufacturing between human and machine and continue to accelerate “innovative-Automation”, an innovative manufacturing concept where humans and machines work in harmony.

“innovative-Automation”

Recently, OMRON has developed a manufacturing innovation concept, called “innovative-Automation” With this concept, OMRON is currently committed to bringing innovation to manufacturing sites through three key innovations, or three “i’s.” Through these innovations in the area of automation, OMRON aims to enable significant productivity improvements in manufacturing sites in order to achieve high-value-added manufacturing. With the first “i,” “integrated” (control evolution), OMRON will seek to advance automated control technology so that virtually any operator, even inexperienced operators, can effortlessly perform work that previously required the expert skills of experienced workers. With the second “i,” “intelligent” (development of intelligence by ICT), OMRON seeks to create constantly evolving equipment and production lines. By adopting a wide range of control devices and artificial intelligence (AI), machines can learn through experience and maintain themselves in optimal condition. For the third “i,” “interactive” (new harmonization between people and machines), OMRON pursues the development of a new harmonious relationship between human operators and machines. Working together in the same workspace, machines will be able to assist human operators by recognizing human thoughts and behavior.

NTT DOCOMO Launches IoT-driven Temperature-monitoring Service in USA – Its reduce food wastage and inefficiencies by visualizing refrigerator temperatures http://japan-product.com/ntt-docomo-iot-us/ http://japan-product.com/ntt-docomo-iot-us/#comments Tue, 23 Oct 2018 22:13:33 +0000 JAPAN PRODUCTS http://japan-product.com/?p=22635 NTT DOCOMO Launches IoT-driven Temperature-monitoring Service in USA

Date: October 22, 2018
Source: NTT DOCOMO Inc. and NTT DOCOMO USA, Inc.

TOKYONTT DOCOMO Inc. and NTT DOCOMO USA, Inc. announced today the immediate launch of an IoT-driven temperature- and humidity-monitoring service for industrial refrigerators and freezers in the United States. Customers can use smartphones or PCs to monitor the temperature and humidity of their equipment, get alerts in the event of any abnormality, receive monthly reports on temperature and humidity trends, and change settings based on such reports. The subscription service is available from $99 per month in the United States.


IoT-driven Temperature and Humidity Monitoring System

DOCOMO developed the service in collaboration with myDevices, an IoT solutions company based in Los Angeles, California that provides IoT technology based on LoRa®, a wireless data communication technology for low-power, extra-long-range transmissions. Temperature and humidity data collected at grocery stores and restaurants are available in the cloud in real time for reliable temperature management, including efficient automation of processes such as visual confirmations by employees, and reduced food wastage.

The system uses the LoRaWANTM specification, a low-power, wide area networking protocol introduced by the LoRa AllianceTM, which enables sensors to run for more than five years without replacement.

Refrigeration temperature management is an important issue for grocery stores and restaurants, because equipment breakdowns can lead directly to food spoilage. Despite the high demand for industrial refrigerators with remote monitoring functionality, such equipment is expensive and replacement cycles can be long, so many refrigerators without such functionality are operating in the U.S. market.

The new service has been launched under DOCOMO’s “GlobiotTM” global IoT initiative, which was introduced on July 2 to provide global connectivity and operational support and consulting to Japanese enterprises that have global IoT operations. Going forward, DOCOMO and DOCOMO USA expect to continue collaborating with cutting-edge U.S. companies to introduce additional IoT solutions that help customers raise their productivity and create new value.
