OMRON’s new MD-650 and MD-900 medium-payload autonomous mobile robots are launching with top modules from ROEQ.
The rebirth of IAM Robotics is significant because it is the latest chapter in what was a valiant attempt to commercialize mobile manipulators. It’s also a poignant lesson in failed market fit and knowing when to pivot as a robotics startup.
The new OMRON TM20 cobot is lightweight and features a 20 kg payload and 1300 mm reach.
ROEQ is delivering top modules and cart systems for OMRON’s LD-250 autonomous mobile robot, boosting its carrying capacity to 500kg (1,102lbs).
Autonomous mobile robots can gain several operational capabilities when they take advantage of 5G performance.
Measuring 1.25 inches per side, the cameras are small and lightweight. The cameras support Microsoft Windows, Apple iOS, Linux, and single-board computer operating systems.
Since 2018, the TM series cobot arms have been sold as a co-branded product globally through OMRON’s distribution network.
Omron has introduced its i4L Series of light-duty industrial SCARA robots. The series has three models that offer reaches of 350mm, 450mm, and 550mm and a 5kg maximum payload capacity. The 4-axis robots, which feature three rotational axes and one linear axis, offer repeatability of ±0.01. Omron said the compact design, speed and flexible programming…
Omron Automation Americas has added the HD-1500 autonomous mobile robot to its lineup, providing an option for moving heavy or bulky payloads that works with its fleet management software.
Omron Asia Pacific said its partnership with Techmetics Robotics has produced an autonomous mobile robot designed for safe and automated disinfection of public spaces indoors.
Omron is now selling its LD-250 mobile robot worldwide. The Omron LD-250 is the strongest mobile robot in the company’s LD series with a payload capacity of up to 250kg. It features a maximum speed of 1.2 m/s and a maximum run time of 13 hours before it needs to be recharged. Other models in…
Omron, an industry leader in end-to-end automation, will demonstrate an interactive collection of manufacturing equipment, including an autonomous mobile manipulator and Robotiq grippers integrated into its TM Series cobot.
Manufacturers can start production faster with AirPick and EPick, says Robotiq.
Collaborative robots, mobile platforms, and the enabling hardware and software were all on display at Automate/ProMat, but what was new and noteworthy?
Omron Automation Americas, a provider of end-to-end solutions for industrial automation, will be at the upcoming Automate Show to demonstrate applications for the factory of today and that of the future. Omron plans to display diverse technologies, including systems for traceability and flexible manufacturing. The biennial Automate Show gives attendees the opportunity to see many…
Even as the market for autonomous mobile robots grows, developers need to understand how they compare with other technologies and where demand is highest.
Visit Booth N-4740 at PACK EXPO 2018 where Omron will be displaying new technologies including sensing, control, safety, vision, motion and robotics that will help manufacturers upgrade their traceability systems and streamline their flexible production lines. This is essential to compete successfully in an industry where high variety and extensive customization is the norm. Flexible…
Universal Logic has announced a new version of its signature Neocortex artificial intelligence product designed for do-it-yourself engineers. Neocortex DIY software allows engineers to configure and deploy AI-based robot cells for variable picking in both manufacturing and consumer products supply chains. Based on the Neocortex platform, Neocortex DIY extends perception, directs grasping, and guides robots,…
Japanese robotics company Omron has developed a robotic ping-pong system that looks to approach the human-robot interaction on a gentler level, according to a report from The Verge. The Forpheus robot, in its 4th generation, was recently shown at the CEATAC trade show with updates that include a companion arm to serve balls in the…
We spoke with several robot manufacturers to get their thoughts on where the industry is headed and what new things to watch for. Where industrial robots have been Over the past several years, there’s been a trend of more small- and mid-sized companies adopting robot technology—not to mention a reshoring angle to the industry, said […]
Recently, we got word from one of our esteemed contacts at Omron, Monika A. Minarcin, that Omron will be a Gold sponsor of this year’s Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) World Congress & Exhibition at Cobo Hall in Detroit — April 12th through 14th. They’ll also be showcasing a mobile Adept Lynx platform among other technologies. Minarcin manages automotive and semiconductor initiatives at […]
