KUKA is one of the largest and most valued robot brands in the world. They have a global reach and have building producing  automation equipment for over 30 years. They are a global leader in the industrial robot arm market. KUKA, however, is a recent entry into the mobile robot market. Their mobile robot line consists of large capacity vehicles, all of which are omni-directional. ​

The KUKA omniMove mobile heavy-duty platform can move your XXL loads with ease. The KUKA omniMove can be controlled manually or move autonomously. Despite its enormous size and payload capacity, it navigates safely, moving virtually independently. You can also optionally expand it with a self-contained energy supply.

KUKA Omni Move Vehicle

Specially developed wheels allow the mobile heavy-duty platform to move in any direction – even from a standing start. The sophisticated navigation system KUKA Navigation Solution ensures autonomous maneuvering without risk of collision and without requiring artificial floor markings. The KUKA omniMove can be freely scaled in size, width and length within a modular system – just the way you need it.

The KMP 1500 is an omnidirectional, mobile platform that navigates autonomously and flexibly. Combined with the latest KUKA Sunrise controller, it provides modular, versatile and above all mobile production concepts for the industry of the future.

The KUKA omniMove drive technology allows the KMP 1500 to move in any direction from a standing position. The sophisticated wheel technology allows for precise positioning with an accuracy of +/- 5 mm even in tight spaces. This results in space-saving and highly precise automation solutions for logistics.

With a payload capacity of up to 1500 kg, the KMP 1500 safely moves your products through the entire manufacturing process. It meets all necessary safety standards and is also extremely flexible. Integrated safety laser scanners enable autonomous navigation through your production shop.
