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 accepted for battery recharge or scheduled service intervals. Real-time monitoring and diagnosis are of great importance for automated systems to keep uptime high.

LINAK® actuators represent the joint between the transport vehicle and the goods to be handled and meet today’s 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 characteristics to provide a compact design. The integrated controller offers power supply up to 48 V and standard communication interfaces like CANopen or IO-link. Additional components such as converter or motor controller, extra communication modules or external sensors for position control are obsolete, and this 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, analyze failures and allocate 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 reduced to a minimum. The precise control results in high operational efficiency as well as enabling parallel run.

Go the long 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 lifetime calculator B10, you can get a qualified estimation of the actuator lifetime when used in your specific application.
