About OMAC

In today’s global economy, manufacturers continue to strive for new ways to reduce delivery times, be more efficient with available resources and increase profitability, all while maintaining their competitive advantage. When manufacturers come together and share best practices, the whole industry benefits.

The Organization for Machine Automation and Control (OMAC) was formed to meet this purpose and help manufacturers work together to find new and innovative ways to run successful production operations.

OMAC brings together leading manufacturers representing End-User Manufacturers, OEM Machine Builders, System Integrators, Technology Providers, and Non-Profit/Government Agency organizations to address issues that confront global manufacturing today. OMAC’s three Work Groups, Packaging, Machine Tool and Remote Access, lead the way in producing industry consensus guidelines that help manufacturers achieve their production goals.
