K-AGV  The future of industrial cleaning

with the most efficient cleaning robot in the world

Synergy in Automation by integrating the K900 to AGV robots in steamlining operations.

Floor-cleaning robotics conveniently communicated to fleet and warehouse management systems

Today’s warehouses:

  • Each robot is part of a network (e.g., central warehouse management system.)
  • Robots from different manufacturers can be viewed and managed from a single dashboard.
  • All collected information is displayed centrally.

Use Case Examples:

  • The K-AGV could be notified of a fire alarm by the central network and evacuate itself to a desired location.
  • The K-AGV can enter and exit areas by opening doors of access on its own.

IDEAL CLEANING SCENARIOS

Automated warehouses

Rack-2-Person

Production flow

  • Perfect for low traffic warehouses.
  • Engineered for optimal performance in standard warehouse floor cleaning routines.
  • Automated doors can be integrated to the K-AGV allows for even more autonomy.
  • API control interface needed.
  • Standardized height for system efficiency.
  • Fit for high traffic environments subject to constant change due to guided vehicles.
  • API control interface needed.
  • Compliance of low height racks (22-30cm height).
  • The K900 proves to be very important to facilitate the efficiency of Rack2Person robots that continuously scan QR codes placed on the floor. Approximately 75% of Rack2Person robots use QR codes for orientation and the K900 is there to keep them clear and readable.  
  • Equipped with advanced navigation systems to ensure highly synchronized and accurate warehouse movement.
  • Top AGV navigation control for streamlined command interfaces.
  • Standardized height for system efficiency.
  • Assists production line efficacy.
  • Some AGVs follow always the same lane. Therefore, this lane has to be kept clean very well to reduce the frequency of AGV maintenance and downtimes. 

The Problem

  • Automated warehouses are looking for efficient cleaning solutions.
  • Cleaning personnel is not permitted to enter operational areas during active hours.
  • Collaboration and data sharing with other systems are a must when it comes to automated warehouses.
  • Stable use of AGVs require a clean environment. 
  • 24 hour operations makes it difficult to schedule cleaning times, both remotely and manually. 
  • AGVs demand a high cost of maintenance (sensor cleaning, tangled debris like foil / hair, etc.) 
  • AGVs often experience downtime due to inadequate maintenance.

Our Solution

  • The K900 autonomous guided vehicle (AGV) is designed for seamless operation and cleaning within modern, highly-automated warehouses, and is equipped to work in tandem with other robotic systems, including automated guided transport vehicles.
  • The K900 AGV implements and API that enables the robot to be controlled by existing fleet- or warehouse managements. 
  • Uses Standard API VDA5050  
  • Provides an ecological, low maintenance solution that is also suitable for use in hazardous zones.
  • Cleaning costs are reduced by more than 22’000 EUR per year (based on a medium-sized warehouse with 10’000 m²).
  • More than 50% of cleaning costs are saved.
  • Regular usage of the K900 leads to less downtime of AGVs and to a decrease in maintenance recurrence.

    In less than five minutes you will have our robot up and running. Its simplest use case is its plug-and-play process.

     

    • Unpack the robot.

    • Attach the charging station to the wall.

    • Fit the dirt container and dock the robot.

    • Let the robot do its thing.

     

    Constant maintenance prolongs life

    Simple maintenance tips

    Dirt bin

    Clean the dirt bin regularly and remove any sticky residue, string, or sharp objects.

    Dust filter

    An optional K900 hoover can be ordered with each robot. This is conveniently attached above the charging station. The dust filter can be removed in two easy steps and should be vacuumed periodically.

    Brushes

    The quality brushes are durable. Nevertheless, you should check after some time whether the brushes are worn out and need to be replaced. You can reorder these from us.

    Dust cloth

    Use our KEMARO dust cloth to clean the robot from light dirt particles. Treat the robot as you would any other machine in your business.

    Application areas

    The right solution for many problems

    New applications for the K900 are discovered every day. Fundamentally the K900 was designed to clean large interior surfaces, but beyond that there are almost no limits. Here are its most common use cases.
