In this video, you can see how Omron TM collaborative robots work safely side-by-side with people.
In Shanghai, labor costs are increasing by 7% each year. With growing shortages in manpower, it is becoming more and more difficult to hire factory operators.
Unique Omron Solution
Adopting Omron’s industrial robots in the factory has greatly improved productivity in the past few years. However, human tasks are absolutely necessary in the production of our products. And that’s why we introduced collaborative robots.
Results and Benefits
After implementing Omron TM collaborative robots we not only improved production efficiency, but our ROI is as short as 12-14 months. Moreover we can easily and gradually increase the number of cobot units as our production expands.
