Automation

Industrial automation is a critical component of the modern industrial landscape, especially in the era of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation. One of the primary challenges that automation addresses is enhancing efficiency by reducing the time and resources required for complex manufacturing processes. Additionally, it can also enhance product quality, improve worker safety, and enable businesses to scale their operations more effectively.  With Industry 4.0 and digital transformation, automation is becoming increasingly important as it enables manufacturers to capture critical process data and integrate their operations with cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning, advanced analytics, and the Industrial Internet of 

 

Things (IIoT). This integration not only improves efficiency but also enables businesses to collect and analyze data in real-time, leading to more informed decision-making and increased agility in response to changing market conditions.

Omnicon stands ready to provide innovative and customized solutions to serve your automation needs with specific emphasis on optimizing your existing systems, implementing control system upgrades, going beyond smaller-scale needs to include large-scale improvements, enhancing automation processes for batch executions and supporting OEMs as they develop refined techniques and approaches.

“Businesses can achieve growth and competitiveness by either increasing sales volume or improving operating margins. However, focusing on only one of these strategies can limit opportunities for growth. To achieve sustained success, businesses can optimize operational performance through automation projects, which can lead to cost savings and higher profitability”

Contact us

Large, successful companies are taking their automation to new levels. From the use of digital twins, to the use of big data and advanced analytics. The possible use cases that technology offers today based on information, intelligence, and connected systems are varied and futuristic. We have not yet finished discovering all the possible use cases that

will be available in the short term. You have to ask yourself:

• Is the information I have at hand today reliable?
• How do I get it?
• Can I get it faster?
• Can I know what is going on in the business across a region?
• Or worldwide?
• Can I compare processes between similar plants?
• Can I rely on the information I have to predict behaviors of important variables for the business?
• Can I rely on the information in the systems?


The answer to all of the above is YES! On the other hand, if we were to ask ourselves: Does my company have all of the above? The answer is most likely “not yet”; but these opportunities are available due to the constant technological advances that are presented daily.
