At the Siemens plant in Krefeld, Germany, the KUKA omniMove is moving railcar bodies crossways, enabling continuous production.
The specially developed KUKA omniMove drive technology based on the Mecanum wheel ensures that the KUKA omniMove can maneuver omnidirectionally. The wheels with individual, barrel-shaped rollers can move independently of each other.
This allows the KUKA omniMove to move from a standing position start and to perform translational and rotational motions in the tightest of spaces. It can thus move swiftly and compactly in all directions.
Depending on the vehicle variant, the KUKA omniMove can safely and conveniently move even the heaviest components in XXL format. It has a payload capacity of up to 90 tonnes and – in the maximum version – reaches a length up to 30 meters.
