LINAK actuators in material handling applications such as autonomous mobile robots, tugger trains and pallet trucks.

Solutions for material handling

Electric actuators from LINAK provide smart and reliable lifting solutions for automated warehouse systems.

Solid uptime for material handling vehicles

24/7 operation and high efficiency are key requirements for battery-powered vehicles like Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), pallet trucks or tugger trains in warehouses and manufacturing.

Breaks are only taken for battery re-charges or scheduled service intervals. Real-time monitoring and diagnosis are of great importance to automated systems to keep uptime high.

LINAK® actuators are the link between transport vehicles and the goods that need handling, and they meet current requirements:

  • Compact design
  • Condition monitoring and precise control
  • Long life

We offer a modular product portfolio to provide the right solution for applications with different requirements, such as underride carts with pin hook, top lifting modules for trolleys, racks or pallets, tugger trains and pallet trucks.

Gain space with compact design
LINAK IC actuators have several features that enable a compact design. The integrated controller offers a power supply of up to 48 V, and standard communication interfaces like CANopen or IO-link. Additional components, such as converters or motor controllers, extra communication modules or external sensors for position control are now obsolete, which results in a compact design.

Keep uptime high with condition monitoring and precise control
Feedback signals via standard interfaces enable remote data monitoring and diagnostics. This makes it easier to predict and schedule maintenance intervals, analyse failures and allocate an on-site service. The actuator could even become part of the digital twin of the vehicle. As a result, uptime can be kept high, and downtime is reduced to a minimum. Thanks to this precise control, a high operational efficiency is achieved, as well as a parallel run.

Go the distance
With LINAK Long Life actuators you can match the actuator with the lifetime of other key components, such as drive wheels or battery, for scheduled maintenance service intervals and to avoid extra stops. And with our B10 lifetime calculator, you can get a qualified estimate of the actuator lifetime when used in your specific application.
