Raven Industries Unveils Upgraded OMNiPOWER™ 3200 Model at Commodity Classic
Power platform enhancements make autonomy user-friendly, helping farmers help the world
Raven Industries, Inc. (the Company), the leader in Driverless Ag Technology, announced today the launch of OMNiPOWER™ 3200, the latest model of its autonomous power platform that continues to drive innovation in the industry. The company is showcasing OMNiPOWER™ 3200 at Commodity Classic, one of the most influential farmer-led and farmer-focused shows in the United States.
OMNiPOWER™ gives ag professionals the ability to perform multiple farming operations autonomously. The new 3200 model will accelerate the adoption of advanced autonomous solutions even further with the addition of mechanical, functional and aesthetic enhancements that improve efficiency and make autonomy more practical for growers.
OMNiPOWER™ 3200 is a re-invented machine on the inside. Its new Tier 5 engine has increased horsepower compared to the previous OMNiPOWER system. The machine's hydraulics system has also been optimized, adding about 50% more power to the ground and improving operating speeds. The new model also features improvements to serviceability, making it easier for customers to work on the machine in the field. Ultimately, OMNiPOWER 3200 makes autonomy more feasible for farmers by covering more acres in a day and giving farmers the ability to service the machine.
"Raven continues to be successful at putting together all the building blocks of farm automation and autonomy today," said Ben Voss, Raven Director of Sales in North America and Australia. "OMNiPOWER 3200 is a continuation of this market leadership, with customer-focused improvements that enhance our driverless power platform and incorporate what we've heard from growers and customers."
The upgrades to OMNiPOWER demonstrate Raven's market leadership in autonomous agriculture, showcasing its commitment to helping farmers feed a growing world population. This enhanced model of OMNiPOWER, at its core, is focused on hardware improvements that make the market-leading driverless ag technology more reliable, achievable and user-friendly.
"Our investment in OMNiPOWER has shown our customers and our staff that we are willing to invest in the future of our business so that we're ready for where agriculture is going to be in the next decade," said Chuck Baresich, General Manager of Haggerty Ag Robotics. "I'm really happy to see Raven continuing to invest in the product, continuing to improve it."

Cartesian robots with the right design upgrades can take over manual transfer operations with ease
Manufacturing and packaging operations that still depend on manual material or parts handling operations can reap immediate benefits from a type of automation based on long-travel Cartesian robots with custom end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) and advanced sensing capabilities. These robots can support a variety of machines - performing otherwise manual tasks such as machine tending or transferring in-process parts - making long-travel Cartesian transfer robots a major upgrade to processes and operations.
