KUKA Takes Next-Generation Mobile Robotics to MODEX 2024

KUKA Robotics will spotlight a pair of innovative mobile robots March 11-14 in booth B4003 at MODEX 2024 in Atlanta. The KMP 1500P AMR revolutionizes automation for intralogistic optimization. The KMP 600-S diffDrive AGV advances industrial logistics with laser scanners and 3D object detection to meet the highest safety requirements.

The KMP 1500P maximizes efficiency in production & storage facilities.

With a 60 mm stroke and precision positioning, the KMP 1500P autonomous mobile robot (AMR) transports up to 1.5 tons of materials and workpieces, picks goods, supplies lines and cells with materials and transports production parts in process linking. The robot uses built-in technology and QR code readers to identify loads. It lifts all types of load carriers for easy implementation into existing industrial projects to optimize warehouse processes, streamline assembly lines and enhance complex material handling.
The KMP 1500P can transport up to 1.5 tons of different materials and workpieces.

Differential drive, flexible mobility and the ability to adapt travel paths with autonomous efficiency enable this mobile platform to handle any dynamic, complex environment. To protect the KMP 1500P, its loads and the workplace, safety provisions include 3D cameras, laser scanners and IP class 54. The KMP 1500P charges both at a charging station and during work processes, with inductive, intelligent 24/7 charging management. KUKA’s KMReS fleet manager greatly simplifies integration for the ideal combination of cost efficiency and safety. Maintenance is quick and easy, with replaceable control and switching electronics.

KMP 600-S provides speed for intralogistics.

To transport demanding loads, the KMP 600-S diffDrive mobile platform automated guided vehicle (AGV) moves at speeds up to 2 meters per second in all directions of travel and offers up to 600 kg of payload capacity. An integrated lifting device lifts up to 60 mm in under 3 seconds. The vehicle requires no safety fencing, which provides maximum freedom of movement for employees.

When cycle times require high-speed travel, front and rear-mounted laser scanners ensure safe operation in all travel directions

Camera-based 3D object detection enables the KMP 600-S diffDrive to integrate seamlessly into existing production environments and detect obstacles autonomously from 50 mm up to 2.1 m above the ground. Ideally equipped for tough industrial environments, the KMP 600-S diffDrive features an IP 54 design that works reliably even in adverse conditions such as water spray and dust.


For optimal support of in-house material flows, applications for the KMP 600-S diffDrive program in Java and use initial teaching. A manual controller provides quick, easy commissioning. With quick firmware updates and tool-free access to components including rollers, laser scanners and service interfaces, the platform is easy to maintain, inspect, calibrate and repair.
