The Omron blog: for the curious engineer

07 November 2012

Omron Europe has published a new website to share the experiences of working in the automation industry: the future, machines, manufacturing, innovations and more.

Omron Europe aims to take a leading position in the industrial social conversation, says Maurice Bonn, eStrategy Manager.

"By launching this pioneering new blog, we are able to share our knowledge and offer clients and interested parties a platform that keeps up with the latest trends and technologies and gives an excellent spark to the social dialogue.

"The articles will cover current topics - for example, on geographical location (which is an important topic for the European industry these days), or an interview about what is going to happen with materials and fabrics in packaging over the next few years.

"Omron has an editorial team in place to write the articles but, more importantly, a group of contributors from the field.

"Omron offers a platform where Professors, customers, students and other interested parties can write blog posts or share their ideas with their peers in the automation industry. Of course, the editorial team will always review the contributions to ensure a high standard. But expect spontaneous enthusiastic, not so corporate, honest stories that should make a great read."

To give you a taste of the type of content that is available, here are three recent articles:

Safety first: making the difference in automated production

It’s sometimes easy to forget that production safety is not just a question of obeying the law… it can actually have a direct and positive impact on productivity, reliability and output quality.

The amazing story of fresh milk for everyone

Fresh milk is one of those commodities that we tend to take for granted, and it’s easy to forget just how difficult it is to deliver in packaged form, as we were reminded recently by a short article in The Atlantic.

Back to the future: The civilization starter kit

Marcin Jakubowski built a tractor in six days. Then he told the world how to do it: he made the designs, the budget and an instructional video available free online. 


Maurice Bonn concludes: "Just like us, we invite you to get hooked! And before we forget, if there is anything that you would like to share with us, please do not hesitate to contact us at"
