Effective Load Handling for Low Lift Heights
The Linde Material Handling L-MATIC pallet stacker is suitable for storage or removals at low level. It tackles loads of up to 2,200 lbs and lift heights up to 6 ft. Thanks to infrastructure free geo-navigation, the L-MATIC can be used flexibly as an individual truck or as part of an automated fleet. When operating in this manner, the robotic forklift is able to integrate safely and efficiently with people, non-automated trucks or the customer’s infrastructure, such as belt conveyors or packing stations. Furthermore, manual operation is possible at any time, used to, for example, move the equipment away from a dangerous zone quickly in the event of an emergency, or to use the truck to carry out another short-term task.
Thanks to the comprehensive laser and camera-supported safety equipment, the Linde L-MATIC monitors its working surroundings and reacts reliably should people, other trucks, or any other hazards obstruct the movement or work processes, the system adapts the zones being monitored to the travel speed and steering angle. Several emergency stop buttons, as well as various acoustic and visual warning signals complement the safety characteristics of the L-MATIC.
Whether in use as an individual truck or as part of a fleet of automated trucks, the L-MATIC is controlled by Supervisor software, and communication with other automated systems such as gates or roller tracks is every bit as simple as the connection to the customer’s warehouse management or ERP systems. The system works out the best possible allocation of travel tasks and routing. using sophisticated safety technology, the L-MATIC resumes the work process automatically, when people or other obstacles are no longer present in the zone under observation. To use the truck manually, the operator only needs to take hold of the control tiller.
The L-MATIC is designed for long periods of use, with the easy accessibility of all electronic and mechanical components and the maintenance free three-phase technology contributing to the high level of availability of the truck. All truck data relevant for maintenance of the L-MATIC can be read out using a service laptop, and there is also the option of installing a remote diagnostics system.
