New LD-250 mobile robot from Omron moves payloads up to 250kg and helps expand the flexibility of autonomous materials transport

The strongest and most recent addition to the LD Series of mobile robots from industry-leading automation solutions provider Omron Automation Americas is capable of transporting payloads of up to 250kg while helping to diversify a robotic fleet under a single management system.

Hoffman Estates, IL., January 29, 2020 – Global automation solutions pioneer Omron Automation Americas recently launched its latest addition to the LD Series of autonomous mobile robots. Known as the LD-250, this new robot carries payloads of up to 250kg and has a sturdy structure that is optimized for items like transmission blocks, automotive seats and voluminous packaging materials that are bulky as well as heavy.

Together with Omron’s powerful Fleet Manager, the LD-250 helps manufacturers construct a more flexible and optimized autonomous material transport system, as Fleet Manager now enables the control of multiple mobile robots with different payloads through a single system. The system can manage traffic, battery charging requirements and vehicle navigation for a diverse fleet of up to 100 robots.

Factories worldwide are seeking better ways to increase the productivity and profitability of high-mix production amid a decreasing workforce in industrialized nations and rising labor costs in emerging countries. The Omron LD mobile robots can avoid people and obstacles while automatically calculating the best routes to transport material, thereby optimizing materials transport requirements while reducing labor requirements.

With the addition of the LD-250 to the LD series, customers in a wide variety of industries – including automotive, electronics and food and beverage – are no longer required to establish a fixed material transport equipment. Instead, they can achieve a system that can flexibly handle changing market demands while liberating workers from the dull and tiring work of material transport.

In addition to its extra-sturdy structure that carries unwieldy items traditionally transported in human-operated carts, the LD-250 is also highly customizable with special conveyor tops, courier systems and adaptive material handling mechanics. It also takes advantage of several Omron technologies that improve performance, such as the High Accuracy Positioning System (HAPS), side lasers and the Acuity vision localization technology.

The integration of the LD-250 with the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot will also open up a new market for heavy-duty mobile manipulators that can handle manipulation tasks along with material transport. Industry professionals interested in learning more about the LD-250’s capabilities are encouraged to visit the  mobile robot product page on Omron’s website.
