Demand for automated solutions has recently increased dramatically. The trend is based on the fact that goods are no longer moved to production locations with forklift trucks, for example, but with automated tugger trains. The technology relieves the customer of a lot of work: the customer travels the route with the equipment once, and thereafter the equipment recognizes the route and can then orientate itself to the place of use and move parts in a steady rhythm. The equipment travels to defined stations where full trolleys are exchanged for empty ones and then the tugger train continues on its way.
To reduce the risk of accidents, Linde Material Handling offers customers a rear-area monitoring system as an optional extra.
Tugger trains can be maneuvered precisely – a key benefit when operating in narrow aisles.
A look at the production facilities
Modern manufacturing methods are used to produce Linde forklift trucks.
Besides a fuel tank, the hybrid truck is fitted with an energy store situated at the rear.
