Rockwell Automation opens new facility in Korea

The new facility will be located at the Rockwell Automation Seoul office


Industrial automation specialist Rockwell Automation recently announced the opening of its Customer Experience Center (CEC) in Korea at the Rockwell Automation Seoul office.

The newly opened center consists of five zones where customers can experience Rockwell Automation’s latest smart factory technologies first-hand, including the motor control center, Independent Cart Technology, Internet of Things (IoT) control systems and cybersecurity systems, distributed control systems, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications. Hands-on demonstrations will be administered by Rockwell subject matter experts and visitors can download an AR-enabled app to experience the solutions for themselves. In addition, all solutions are operated based on real-time data, so visitors can behold the actual operation status of facilities, the company said.

“Many manufacturers are considering introducing smart factory technologies that incorporate information technology into their manufacturing processes to flexibly respond to changing markets and strengthen competitiveness through continuous innovation,” said Yong-ha Lee, regional director, Rockwell Automation Korea.

“The CEC provides a one-stop location where customers can physically and virtually interact with our cutting-edge solutions and understand the value of the Connected Enterprise. I hope the center will be a place where customers can experience how digitalization can address real business problems and immediately begin developing tailored strategies together with us,” the executive added.

In related news, Rockwell Automation announced the opening of the Rockwell Experience Center at the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI) in Manchester, New Hampshire. ARMI is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance the bioeconomy of the United States.

The Rockwell Experience Center will help teach ARMI’s members, including physicians and researchers, how to leverage smart manufacturing to scale regenerative medicine products so they can be delivered to more people faster. The center includes equipment from Rockwell, Air Science, Cytiva, Festo and HID Global. The focal point of the center is a fully automated Cytiva equipment process train integrated with various Rockwell technologies. These include a distributed control system, a manufacturing execution system, and a digital twin.

“The Rockwell Experience Center demonstrates Rockwell’s longstanding support of ARMI and the role smart manufacturing technologies can play to bring regenerative medicine to scale,” said Blake Moret, ARMI board member and chairman and CEO of Rockwell Automation. “ARMI’s work training workers to compete and win in this fast-moving industry is an exciting model for manufacturing and for American competitiveness.”
