Factory Automation

The Factory Automation (FA) domain covers manufacturing of the automobiles and home appliances that enrich people’s lives over the world. The Industrial Automation Business (IAB) is the main segment that drives business in this domain.

OMRON provides innovation in manufacturing by putting together a unique and extensive product line to provide breakthrough solutions beyond the capabilities of our competitors. Moving forward, our focus will be on four areas that promise particularly high levels of growth: automobiles, digital, food and beverages, and social infrastructure. We will accelerate our strategic concept of innovative-Automation to implement rapid growth.

A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR THE EARTH

Today, there is a growing need for the development of industries in which anyone can take part and an infrastructure that facilitates innovation everywhere.
Our goal is to enrich the lives of people across the world by enabling anyone to access high-function products wherever they live. We also aim to allow many people to participate in manufacturing products.
To make this happen, manufacturing practices must be made easier, whether for developed countries with workforce shortages or emerging nations with a large workforce but a deficit of skilled workers.
