OTTO Motors introduced its newest AMR – OTTO 600. The new product is the company’s toughest and most nimble AMR in its class, according to an OTTO press statement.

OTTO 600 unlocks new workflows with its ability to move pallets, carts and other payloads up to 600 kg (1,322 lb). It features an all-metal construction and IP54 rating.

Highlights of the product include:

  • Maneuverable in tight spaces: OTTO 600 offers capabilities of larger AMRs with the maneuverability needed to get around in constrained spaces like work cells.
  • Durable build for demanding environments: In addition to a rugged, all-metal body, OTTO 600 offers the ability to withstand dust and fluids with IP54 construction.
  • Fast and safe around people and objects: OTTO 600 works safely alongside people with sensors and the company’s autonomy software.
  • Versatile to get different jobs done: It is capable of moving carts and pallets, as well as connecting islands of automation.
  • Key specs:
    • 1,322 lb (600 kg) payload capacity
    • 4.5 mph (2 m/s) maximum speed
    • 1050/700/320 mm footprint
    • IP54 rating

OTTO 600 is available through the existing global network of OTTO Motors system integrators and material handling solution providers.

OTTO’s latest software release, 2.28 features options to deliver faster and safer traffic movement and a new facility configuration interface for quicker workflow set-up, according to the company. This is the sixth software release from the company in the last three years.


The latest software release features include:

  • Team-based traffic control: Customers can create traffic zones for specific robot types. For example, operators can specify lanes where larger AMRs cannot enter, ensuring smaller AMRs remain unblocked and are able to keep moving for higher throughput.
  • New and intuitive facility configuration interface: Customers can save time required to set up facility maps and workflows. It is also easier for customers to use, learn and adapt to the system, adds the company in its press statement.
  • Interoperability: OTTO Motors supports the AGV standard, VDA5050, allowing customers to manage dissimilar types of material handling solutions from a third-party master controller interface.
  • New pallet types: OTTO Lifter now supports BulkPak 4845 HDMP series bins, enabling customers to move more pallets of their choice.
