LCS and Omron consolidate their collaboration to deliver to the European market complete, reliable and state-of-the-art intralogistics solutions.
LCS and Omron strengthen their collaboration through a partnership agreement, whereby LCS becomes Omron Solution Partner and thus one of Omron’s key integrators for mobile robotics fleet applications in manufacturing and intralogistics across Europe.
The successful cooperation between LCS and Omron began in 2017 with the launch of an ambitious project that saw the implementation of a fleet of 7 Omron mobile robots, perfectly integrated thanks to LCS’s expertise in software development and configuration.
The solution implemented has determined a significant improvement in the management of production areas and internal handling, with significant benefits in terms of:
• reduction of errors and machine downtime;
• guaranteed 24/7 plant operation;
• man-machine relationship, with the mobile robots that carry out their activities in close contact with the personnel moving within the entire work area;
• layout flexibility to best respond to production fluctuations due to a dynamic and volatile product market;
This was made possible by the close cooperation between LCS and Omron and constant exchange of information and know-how.
Gianfranco Silipigni, CEO of LCS Group, comments: “Together we have succeeded in creating a unique solution that combines mechanics, software and artificial intelligence in an integrated and efficient way”.
The partnership agreement between LCS and Omron was signed with mutual satisfaction, acknowledging the formal consolidation of the current collaboration as a great opportunity.
“The possible applications with this technology provide significant advantages in both operational
and competitive terms, the potential is truly considerable. I am sure that the future has many
ambitious projects in store for LCS and Omron and, thanks to this partnership, we will always be
ready to address them in the best way possible”, states Silipigni.
The solution developed by LCS with Omron’s AIV has significantly improved the management of production areas and internal handling. The beginning of a fruitful collaboration between the two companies.
