Bangkok, Thailand, May 14, 2021- Delta Thailand’s IA team developed an original robot solution to enable a touchless Songkran Festival at the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) Bangkok headquarters. This solution promotes new normal safety at the workplace.
The MEA commissioned the original solution to allow users to make traditional water offerings safely with just one hand swipe and welcome in the Thai New Year. Users swipe their hands over a Delta industrial automation sensor to activate a DRV90L Delta 6-Axis Articulated Robot that automatically performs the water pouring ritual.
Mr. Jumpote Himacharoen, Metropolitan Electricity Authority Director of Corporate Communication Department, said, “We chose Delta because it’s a company developing complete solutions with its own robotics and automation systems. Delta’s precise and flexible robotics system and contactless applications are well-suited for COVID-19 prevention and helped raise awareness for new normal solutions.”
Mr. Kasemson Kreuatorn, Delta Senior Regional Manager for industrial automation, said, “Delta is excited to support the MEA in actualizing this ‘New Normal’ Songkran Festival concept. This demonstrates both the unique versatility of the Delta industrial robot and our capability to implement seamless integration of all our own automation devices in a complete solution that helps Thais have a more safe and productive life despite COVID.”
The Delta IA BG has extensive experience in implementing successful automation solutions. In Thailand, DET IA leverages our world-class solutions and operations expertise to support major partners like the MEA in driving innovation that shape life in Thailand’s new normal.
