Omron Automation, the world leader in sensing & control technologies, announces the launch of its state-of the art ‘1S Servo technology’ – an innovative solution to enhance machine productivity with higher accuracy and integrated safety for packaging, machine tools, pharmaceutical, automotive and food and beverage sectors in India.
With enriched design to meet the varied machine requirements, ‘1S servo technology’ optimizes the full cycle through seamless installation, commissioning and finally to the maintenance once in production. In addition to the traditional motion solution, the 1S servo offers industry standard 23 bit high resolution absolute encoder. The combination of Omron’s NX701 Sysmac automation platform controller and 1S servo series provides an industry leading 125 µsec system cycles which contribute to the development of ultra-high accurate machines. It comes with a battery – free absolute encoder as a standard which helps to reduce the mounting space and time thus increasing productivity. Another key feature of the 1S is the FailSafe over EtherCat capability.
‘1S Servo technology’ works on Omron’s flagship integrated automation platform – Sysmac and is also integrated with Omron’s Automation Software ‘Sysmac Studio’. This allows the machine design time to be reduced by up to 50%.
Explaining more about the launch, Mr. Sameer Gandhi, MD, Omron Automation, India says, “Faced with increasingly diversified consumer needs, it is crucial to stay ahead of the innovation curve. Thus, there is a constant need to bring in innovation to manufacturing sites through automation with integrated, intelligent and interactive concepts for increased productivity; 1S Servo is one-of-its-kind to address the need most efficiently. We are enthusiastic with the launch as it is a step ahead in strengthening our automation offering particularly towards the packaging sector which is one of the important segments in the manufacturing domain in India. The technology has the potential of delivering impressive results to help manufacturers scale up the value chain in terms of higher productivity and increased machine output results.”
