Omron launches virtual safety experience for factory floors
Omron’s new virtual safety experience provides a 360-degree view of safety solutions for factory floors in automotive and intralogistics applications.
Reflecting the concept of the factory of the future, it lets visitors dive deep into selected safety application areas. It also provides safety guides and detailed information on various safety solutions. For example, emergency stops, laser scanners, door switches, safety light curtains, and grip switches and controllers.
Using 3D animations and videos, the virtual experience allows safety and engineering managers to explore diverse options for their applications. Moreover, they can see how to implement them in real life.
Virtual safety experience
Josep Plassa, EMEA Safety Product Marketing Manager at OMRON Europe comments. “We find the idea of making safety concepts accessible for everyone in manufacturing to be inspiring. This virtual safety experience is a perfect guide for manufacturers transitioning from traditional to automated applications. Moreover, it allows non-safety experts to discover, in a realistic and uncomplicated way, how to implement safety solutions in a flexible manufacturing factory where humans and machines interact continuously.”
In addition to the safety guides and applications, the visitors can also step inside a Safety Curiosities Lab. It is here that users can view short how-to videos on various safe automation topics. Thanks to these infomercials they can for example learn how to select the correct push button, or how to link emergency stops signals with machinery.
Plassa continues: “Safety experts can also benefit from the virtual safety experience and discover how the latest safety solutions together with OMRON’s safety services can improve productivity.” The Safety Virtual Experience demonstrates how OMRON’s solutions can help manufacturers sustain the highest possible levels of safety whilst reducing restart delays and waste for more sustainability.
