Ventac are delighted to welcome the OMRON robot to our Innovation and Acoustics Laboratory for the ongoing STAR project.

The European funded project entitled 'STAR' - Stitching and Taping assisted by Robotics, seeks to advance the use and capability of robotics as an assistive technology within short run manufacturing processes. The project will demonstrate the benefits of environment digitalisation to SME operations. 

Ventac are delighted to have formed a partnership with the automation expertise of Malone Group and their hardware partner Omron Group. Also very thankful to Irish Manufacturing Research for their guidance and support throughout the project. 

This project will bring Ventac to the forefront of cobot-enabled digital factory operations. Whilst enabling other manufacturing SMEs with complicated manual finishing operations to envision how robotics could augment their service offering via redeployment of the open-source technology, with modified end effector attachments, and use of accessible data analytic libraries.
