Autonomous mobile robots are perfectly suited to automated handling

The KMR CYBERTECH mobile robot enables the automation of machine tools with maximum flexibility in confined spaces.

Strong robotics portfolio for automated handling

We offer robots with a wide range of payload capacities, reaches and variants to master your handling task. Furthermore, with our mobile robotics you are even more flexible in the design of your production facility.


Cobots and pick & place robots

Handling robots for low to medium payload capacities

All-rounder for heavy handling tasks 

With KUKA linear units, you add a further axis to the robot, thereby considerably extending its work envelope. Our controllers for large robots (KR C5) and small robots (KR C5 micro) round out the package.
