OMRON Invests in Techman Robot

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
OMRON Corp. has signed an agreement for a capital investment in Techman Robot, a collaborative robot company located in Taiwan. OMRON will hold a stake of approximately 10% in Techman. The investment is expected to be completed by December.

In 2018, OMRON entered into a strategic alliance with Techman to meet increasing automation needs, since which time Techman’s TM series collaborative robots have been sold as a co-branded product globally through the OMRON distribution network. OMRON and Techman also jointly developed the Mobile Manipulator, a mobile work robot that combines OMRON’s mobile robot and the TM series, to enable manufacturing sites where humans and machines collaborate.

Through the newly announced investment, OMRON aims to jointly develop innovative robot solutions that combine its factory automation equipment with Techman’s collaborative robots, ensuring both safety and productivity and offering a solution to the issue of labor shortages at manufacturing sites.

collaborative robot
Collaborative Robot (Cobot): Unlike traditional autonomous robots, which usually work by themselves, a collaborative robot is programmed to work with humans, such as a guide or an assistant. They can “learn” and “think” from the human partner based on their socially intelligent interface and physically interact with humans in a shared workspace.
