OMRON Robust Components Deliver Breakthrough Value

Hi, we have upgraded our components to be robust enough to withstand cutting oil for 4 years.
Hi, how does that help us?
With robust components, the lifespan of components in cutting oil environments are increased from an average of 1 year, to 4 years.
As such, you will see a great reduction of product failures and downtime. In addition, replacement frequencies and maintenenace visits are greatly reduced.
That is great news for the production team! Thank You!

How Do We Achieve 4 Years Of Oil Resistance In Our Components

OMRON’s Oil-Resistant Component Evaluation Standards

OMRON’s oil-resistant components has been evaluated according to IP67G of JIS C 0920*2. We performed oil resistance testing with eight representative cutting oils that were used in manufacturing sites. Click to view

Based on our results, we are able to demonstrate and prove the competence of our product in achieving 4 Years Of Stable Operations In Resisting Oil.

Patented Technologies To Resist Oil Ingress Into Your Components

Fluororesin Blocks Ingress From Cables
Fluororesin Sheath

Through analysis of the ingress paths of cutting oil, we determine that deterioration of cable sheaths is a large factor in causing component failure.

Henceforth, the cable sheaths of OMRON’s oil resistant components are made from fluororesin materials to provide maximum protection against the deterioration. This results in an impregnable cable to even highly aggressive cutting oils.

OMRON-developed Rubber Blocks Ingress Through Joints and Moving Sections

In addition to the deterioration of cable sheaths, deterioration of rubber used at joints and moving sections is also a major cause of the ingress of cutting oil.

Hence to prevent rubber deterioration, we uniquely develop a new fluorinated rubber used at joins and moving sections. Combined with fluororesin cables, this form an impregnable wall of oil resistance.

Ingress Through Cable Joints Is Blocked with OMRON Heat Sealing and Laser Welding Methods

In addition to cable sheaths, joints, and moving sections, cutting oil also enters easily in the gaps of different materials.

With OMRON Advanced Sealing Methods,the Heat-Sealing Method and the Laser Welding Method (for complete sealing without Adhesive), it allows completing sealing of joints of both metal and non metal parts, thus blocking the ingress of cutting oil by preventing the creation of gaps.

A. Heating Seal Method

B. Laser Welding Method

Joints between Metal and Non-metal Parts

Securing the metal case and lens cover with laser welding makes the compressed O-ring seal the gap.

Unique Smartclick Structure
Smartclick Structure + O-ring

Overcome oil-ingress gaps created due to screw tightening or screw losing due to vibration

With traditional screw-tightened structures, differences in tightening torque made achieving oil resistance difficult. OMRON’s Smartclick structure, however locks in a single operation.

The built-in O-ring at the lock position is dependably compressed to block the ingress of cutting oil. This eliminates the need to manage screw tightening torque and prevents screw loosening due to vibration, which are issues in environments requiring oil resistance.
