KMP 600-S diffDrive

At up to two meters per second, the KUKA KMP 600-S diffDrive mobile platform offers speedy performance – and uses laser scanners and 3D object detection to meet the highest safety requirements. This automated guided vehicle system takes industrial intralogistics to a new level.

Mobile freedom with AGVs: Material transport in dynamic environments

The KUKA Mobile Platform KMP 600-S diffDrive opens up new avenues and provides greater flexibility for production intralogistics. As an automated guided vehicle (AGV) with a payload of up to 600 kilograms, the KMP 600-S diffDrive needs no safety fencing, so it enables maximum freedom of movement for employees. Laser scanners mounted at the front and rear provide maximum safety and allow for high speeds in all directions of travel when cycle times require it.


This HRC-capable vehicle operates flexibly and safely in human operators' work environment. 

KUKA AGVs handle many applications, serving as industrial trucks over long distances, AGV assembly systems or for material handling in the food industry.

AGV advantages for in-house logistics

AGVs automatically bring required goods and raw materials to the right place at the right time. They take on physically demanding transportation tasks, and use comprehensive safety technology so they can share passageways with human operators and conventional industrial trucks. With camera-based 3D object detection, they integrate seamlessly into existing production environments. The KMP 600-S diffDrive also can expand with 3D object detection for autonomous detection of obstacles from 50 mm to 2.1 m above the ground. At the same time, the KMP 600-S diffDrive is ideally equipped for the tough everyday environment of industrial production. Its IP 54 design always enables it to work reliably even under adverse conditions – including water spray and dust.

Durable multi-purpose performer with extensive accessories

  • Outstanding dynamic performance

    The KMP 600-S diffDrive is distinguished by its high dynamism. 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 deceleration of 1.5 m/s2. This makes for significantly improved operational efficiency and shortens in-house materials handling 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 by means of 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.
  • Eight safety zones

    There are eight safety zones at both the front and rear of the KMP 600-S diffDrive that customers can customize to tailor them to the application situation. The protective field size is changed dynamically depending on the speed and direction of travel.

Automated guided vehicles from KUKA: Quick start-up, simple maintenance

Program applications in Java and use initial teaching for optimal support of in-house material flows. Commission the KMP 600-S diffDrive quickly and easily via a manual controller. Maintenance is just as easy as startup, with tool-free access to AGV components – including rollers, laser scanners and service interfaces – for inspection, firmware updates, calibration and repairs.

KUKA.NavigationSolution: the flexible solution for your automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS)

The KMP 600-S diffDrive comes with an ideal partner: KUKA.NavigationSolution. This software solution's smart SLAM algorithm (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) maps the surroundings and takes over localization in space (on the vehicle itself) as well as coordination of all the automated guided vehicles (on a central computer). The fleet manager uses parameters such as distance and speed to determine the best route on the network of paths – avoiding all collisions. This software handles all mobility requirements.
