Exhibition Report

International Robot Exhibition 2017 (iREX 2017)

Nov. 29 [Wed] - Dec. 2 [Fri], 2017
Tokyo Big Sight, Japan
  • OPTEX FA participated in International Robot Exhibition 2017, one of the world’s largest robot trade shows.
    Our booth introduced robot- and IoT-related products as well as 3D camera-based robot picking and profile inspection systems, factory automation sensors, and LED lighting for image processing.
    The interest in OPTEX FA products resulted in a steady line of visitors to our booth every day.

FA Sensors for Robot Control and IoT-Capable Systems



  • Ultra High-Accuracy
    Laser Displacement Sensor

    CDX series

  • Small Displacement Sensor With
    Digital Display Type

    CD22 series

OPTEX FA’s CDX series of ultra high-accuracy laser displacement sensors offers the world’s highest linearity at ±0.015% of F.S. With the ability for a direct Ethernet connection, the CDX series allows for viewing and controlling of measurement values and other details from a web browser. The CD22 series, meanwhile, is the smallest displacement sensor in class, and it has been included in a wide variety of robot installations.

Image-Processing LED Lighting Exhibits for Robot Control and IoT-Capable Systems



  • LED Lighting Controller
    with Ethernet Connectivity

    OPPD-30 Series


    LED Lighting lineup

At our image-processing LED lighting exhibit, we introduced predictive maintenance for IoT-enabled lighting.
Using Ethernet to connect the OPPD-30E LED lighting controller to sensing lighting enables monitoring of the lighting brightness and temperature.
This allows dimming feedback control to be performed, making it possible to keep brightness constant.

Exhibitor’s Presentation Seminar (Friday, 10:30 – 11:10 am, Dec. 1)

OPTEX FA’s exhibitor’s presentation seminar, “3D Camera and Vision System Proposals for Amorphous Workpiece Picking”, was attended by a large number of visitors. The seminar focused on the need for robots and the mechanisms used in robot vision systems.
A large number of seminar attendees were interested in robot picking for amorphous workpieces, and many questions were fielded after the seminar.
