OMRON Corporation announced that it will globally start selling a new mobile robot called the LD- 250 on November 15, 2019. With a payload capacity of 250kg, the LD-250 is the strongest and newest addition to the company’s LD series of mobile robots.
Together with the Fleet Manager, which for the first time in the industry enables the control of multiple mobile robots with different payloads through one system, it will contribute to realizing a more flexible and optimized autonomous material transport system.
The new LD-250 mobile robot has a 250kg payload capacity and almost double the surface area, so it can be used to transport large automobile components such as transmission blocks and voluminous packaging materials – things that would traditionally be moved by human workers using carts.
To optimize the autonomous material transport system, customers will use OMRON’s industry-first Fleet Manager, which can control a diverse fleet of up to 100 of OMRON’s mobile robots that can consist of different payloads and capabilities, by conducting traffic management, battery management, and navigation of vehicles.
Motohiro Yamanishi, Senior General Manager of the Robotics Business Development Project at OMRON’s Industrial Automation Company said, “The new LD-250 will be key in advancing that initiative a step further, by giving customers more choice when automating their material transport operation, an area rapidly being enhanced with mobile robots in industries worldwide.” “Onsite logistics, the movement of products and material within the factory and warehouse, is becoming a real bottleneck for many companies due to the frequency and tediousness of the job,compounded by rising labor costs.
OMRON’s mobile robots can help companies solve this issue because they can work 24 hours a day tirelessly, punctually, and safely in the same environment as people,” said Tom Mathias, President and CEO of OMRON Robotics and Safety Technologies, Inc, a leading provider of robotics and safety solutions for manufacturing industries and part of OMRON’s Industrial Automation Business. OMRON will be exhibiting the new LD-250 at the International \Robot Exhibition 2019 to be held in Tokyo, Japan, on Dec. 18-21, 2019.
