Omron to fly Sysmac motion solutions flag at KITE 2017

Omron will showcase its flagship Sysmac motion solutions, incorporating robotic and visual inspection control, at the Kwazulu-Natal Industrial Technology Exhibition (KITE) from 26 to 28 July at the Durban Exhibition Centre in Durban.

The exhibition is perceived as a major platform for Omron’s product offerings and solutions, Victor Marques, Country General Manager, comments. “We believe there is a lot of potential in KwaZulu-Natal. KITE has a good track record of attracting the relevant stakeholders in most of our target industries, creating an ideal opportunity for us to highlight our presence in, and offerings to, the region.”

Omron products to be exhibited are Sysmac motion and PLC control, NX remote I/O, vision systems, safety products, servos and Variable Speed Drives, Human-Machine Interface (HMI), and various general control components

The main target for Omron at KITE 2017 is OEMs and food and beverage end-user customers, agro-processing stakeholders, and the automotive industry. “Essentially, we are focusing on any customer looking for cost-effective and highly-innovative automation and motion and control solutions that meet, and even exceed, their requirements,” Marques highlights.


Omron’s EtherCat solutions and IOT devices will take centre stage at KITE 2017.

This is specifically because Omron has strong experience and references in areas such as motion and drive control, PLC and HMI, automation networks, visual inspection control, and robotics. Field sales engineers will be on the stand to interact with customers personally, while application engineers will be available to field high-end technical queries, and to share their wealth of product and application experience.

“Management will also be on hand to demonstrate our total commitment to our customers, from the top down,” Marques adds. KITE 2017 will provide an informal, yet professional, platform for customers to approach Omron concerning specific solution enquiries.

“We offer one of the most, if not the most, comprehensive variety of products and solutions to meet our customers’ industrial automation needs, from basic general electronic component level to very high-end products. Our stand will be clean, uncluttered and, at a glance, will give potential customers a good overview of what we have on offer from a total-solutions point of view. Our technical staff present at the exhibition represent an invaluable resource that they can tap into,” Marques concludes.
