OMRON Globally Launches LD-250 Mobile Robot to Move Payloads Up to 250kg, explains Yoshihito Yamada, CEO

OMRON Corporation president and CEO: Yoshihito Yamada announced that it will globally start selling a new mobile robot called the LD-250.

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.

Factories worldwide are facing challenges in increasing the productivity and profitability of high-mix production with the decreasing workforce in industrialized nations and rising labor costs in emerging countries. The mobile robot LD series can autonomously avoid people and obstacles while automatically calculating the best routes to transport material.
