Daily Report

The illuminated black box

Conventional LED working lights not only dazzle pedestrians, but also strongly impair the driver through reflections. Linde has therefore developed two new lighting solutions: Linde VertiLight and LED Stripes. Elke Karnarski, Product Manager Service at Linde Material Handling, explains the advantages.

Driverless on the road

Those who see these e-karts for the first time may get a fright, but don't have to worry. The automated karts deliberately drive over the race track without a driver to demonstrate the performance of Linde's Geonavigation. Maxim Balmont, Balyo's automation expert, explains how this works - even on an open-air race track at 36 kilometers per hour.

Slimmer than a pallet

Tight space conditions during loading and unloading or the storage and retrieval of pallets make handling difficult. At the World of Material Handling, Linde is presenting new pallet trucks and pallet stackers with a chassis width of 720 mm, which are all narrower than a Euro pallet. This helps to avoid collision damage in trucks or storage rooms.

Digitalization in brief

"In the future there will be no truck without digitalization," says Franziska Klein, Product Manager Marketing & Communication at Linde Material Handling. In an interview, she explains which digital solutions Linde uses to facilitate its customers' day-to-day business and the importance of digitalization.

Take a Tour around the Safety Area

Why do "golden" forks make Linde forklifts safer? In this video, Benjamin Reis, Sales & Service Developer at Linde, gives the answer and presents further highlights on the subject of safety.

More about Safety

How risky can a forklift ride be?

The limits can be tested in the Linde Safety Pilot (LSP) simulator with an original Linde truck cabin. A drive without LSP in the simulator ends in most cases with the forklift tipping over. In contrast to driving with LSP: Here the driving assistance system regulates the control in such a way that, depending on the load, only certain lifting heights and tilting angles are permitted. This makes tipping accidents with counterweight stackers considerably less likely.

Productive to the last mile

Loading and unloading can be a special challenge for operators: narrow spaces, uneven floors and paved edges. Toufik Oussou, Product Manager Warehouse Trucks at Linde Material Handling, presents Linde's product portfolio and explains how handling becomes productive, efficient and safe right down to the last mile.

More about Unloading & Loading

If one wants to go high up ...

Uneven floors, mast oscillations when working at great heights, dangers that arise when people and vehicles are working in the same environment. These are just some of the challenges that warehouse operators face on a daily basis. Andreas Mönk, product manager for narrow-aisle trucks at Linde Material Handling, talks about the challenges and possible solutions.

Highlights order picking

Why has Linde such versatile solutions from automatic to manual order picking? And what are these different solutions for order picking? Our product manager for warehouse trucks, Eloïse Lévêque, answers these questions in an interview.

More about Order Picking

Which system achieves the best ROI?

Long distances, short distances, lifting, moving and much more. There are different challenges in production and transport. Alexandra Mertel, Product Management Robotics, from Linde Material Handling explains which vehicle is suitable for the respective applications. Depending on the application, customers achieve a better return on investment with automated, semi-automated or manual vehicles.
