KMP 600-S diffDrive

At up to two meters per second, the KMP 600-S diffDrive mobile platform from KUKA is not only fast, but also meets the highest safety requirements thanks to laser scanners and 3D object detection. The automated guided vehicle system thus takes industrial intralogistics to a new level.

Mobile freedom thanks to AGVs: material transport in dynamic environments

The KUKA Mobile Platform KMP 600-S diffDrive opens up new avenues and more flexibility for production intralogistics. The KMP 600-S diffDrive provides support as an automated guided vehicle (AGV) with a payload of up to 600 kilograms. In addition, it allows maximum freedom of movement for employees, as it does not require any protective fencing. The laser scanners at the front and rear provide maximum safety and allow high speeds in all directions when cycle times require it.

The HRC-capable vehicle is flexible in operation and safe in the human work environment

Whether as industrial trucks over long distances, deployed as AGV assembly systems or for materials handling in the food sector: AGVs from KUKA carry out many applications.

What advantages do the AGVs offer for in-house logistics?

AGVs bring required goods and raw materials fully automatically to the right place at the right time. They take on physically demanding transportation tasks and are able to share passageways with human operators and conventional industrial trucks thanks to their comprehensive safety technology. Through the use of camera-based 3D object detection, they integrate seamlessly into existing production environments. The KMP 600-S diffDrive can also be expanded with 3D object detection. This allows the AGV to autonomously detect obstacles that are between 30 millimeters and 2.10 meters above the ground. At the same time, the KMP 600-S diffDrive is ideally equipped for the tough everyday environment of industrial production: thanks to its IP 54 design, it is protected against splashes of water and dust, for example.

Enduring multipurpose performer with accessories in detail

  • Outstanding dynamic performance

    The KMP 600-S diffDrive is characterized by its high dynamic performance. It can move in a straight line at a speed of up to 2 meters per second, with a maximum acceleration of 1.25 m/s2 and a maximum braking deceleration of 1.5 m/s2. This significantly improves operational efficiency and shortens in-plant transport times.
  • High positioning accuracy

    Thanks to KUKA.NavigationSolution, KMP 600-S diffDrive can achieve a positioning accuracy of ±10 mm, without the assistance of orientation markings or reflectors. It can thus be used in many logistical production areas and impresses with its precise delivery of materials, automatic docking and autonomous operation.
  • Integrated lifting device

    The lifting device is already integrated on the KMP 600-S diffDrive. This allows the AGV to lift pallets or cartons, for example, up to 60 millimeters – in less than three seconds. 
  • Interfaces for any requirement

    The KMP 600-S diffDrive can link a wide variety of workstations, thus providing precisely the load handling options the customer requires. For example, it acts as a top-load AGV (automated guided vehicle), as a carriage or via the integrated lifting device. At the same time, the AGV offers many interfaces for application development, including 48 V DC, 24 V DC, EtherCAT, I/O, STO. 
  • Lithium ion battery

    Each KMP 600-S diffDrive has an operating time of around eight hours and can be recharged in two hours. The AGV battery is characterized by its long service life cycle.
  • Eight safety zones

    There are eight safety zones each in front of and behind the KMP 600-S diffDrive, which customers can adjust individually – matched to the speed of the vehicle and the application situation. If the velocity exceeds the protective field limit, the KMP 600-S diffDrive stops to prevent injuries.

Automated guided vehicles from KUKA: Fast commissioning, simple maintenance

Applications can be programmed via JAVA. In order for KUKA’s intelligent, autonomous vehicles to optimally support in-house material flows, they must first be initially taught. The KMP 600-S diffDrive is commissioned quickly and easily via a wireless controller. Maintenance is just as easy as start-up: Access to AGV components, such as rollers, laser scanners and service interfaces, is possible without tools – for inspection, firmware updates, calibration, and repairs. 

KUKA.NavigationSolution: the flexible solution for your automated guided vehicle system

The KMP 600-S diffDrive comes with an ideal partner, which plays to its strengths perfectly in autonomously navigating vehicles: KUKA.NavigationSolution. The software solution with the smart SLAM algorithm (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) creates an environment map. In this way, it can take over the localisation in space (on the vehicle itself) as well as the coordination of all Automated Guided Vehicles (on a central computer). Using information such as distance and speed, the fleet manager determines the best route on the network of paths. The software covers all requirements in the field of mobility.
