Industrial automation provider Rockwell Automation recently opened its Customer Experience Center (CEC) at its Seoul office in South Korea.
"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 centre will be a place where customers can experience how digitalisation can address real business problems and immediately begin developing tailored strategies together with us," added Lee.
The centre consists of five zones where customers can experience Rockwell Automation's latest smart factory technologies first-hand, including the motor control centre, 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.
With over 120 years of experience, Rockwell Automation provides cutting-edge smart factory solutions to companies in more than 100 countries.
