Mobility is an important driver of Industrie 4.0. KUKA develops mobility concepts for the next stage in the evolution of more flexible industrial production. In the cyber-physical world of Industrie 4.0, established structures are becoming a thing of the past. Static production facilities and assembly lines are obsolete. KUKA develops intelligent, mobile units that work together perfectly and find their destination autonomously.
We have developed the KUKA omniMove drive technology for precisely these units. It is based on the Mecanum wheel and consists of two rim discs and nine free-running rollers, which are mounted at a 45 degree angle. This transport platform allows you to simply move underneath your XXL load and lift it up – in the tightest of spaces and with millimeter accuracy, easily operated by remote control.
