Goods-to-Person robot solutions

LINAK actuators help raise and lower the lifting deck of mobile robots to pick and drop racks or shelves in Goods-to-Person automated warehouses.

Actuators for lifting the deck of mobile robots

Picking robots operate in complex warehouse environments where an intelligent warehouse system allocates tasks to the robot fleet. This requires real-time monitoring of the fleet. Flexibility and efficiency of the whole operation are of great importance with the mobile robot doing the hard work. LINAK® actuators support the performance of mobile robots with key characteristics such as:

  • High power density and energy efficiency
  • Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance
  • Long lifetime and reliability

In a Goods-to-Person warehouse system the Autonomous Mobile Robot brings the rack or shelf to the picker. This eliminates non-value adding activities like traveling by the picker. The robot has an integrated vertical lifting deck to release the shelf or rack from the ground for transport and drop off at the right spot.

High power density and energy efficiency
The narrow design of the rack or shelf baseplate defines the outer dimensions of the mobile robot. Components like battery, drive unit and navigation equipment do not leave much space for the lifting unit. The compact and energy-efficient design of LINAK actuators makes them ideal for use in Autonomous Mobile Robots. Supply voltage up to 48 V, standard communication interfaces like CANopen or IO-link and thrust up to 15,000 N are just a few of the outstanding characteristics to be mentioned.

Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance
The warehouse management system requires real-time monitoring to keep the performance of the warehouse operation high. Condition monitoring as provided by the integrated controller of LINAK actuators enables highly efficient fleet management by adapting the robot capacity to the actual needs in the warehouse. In addition, predictive maintenance allows scheduling of service intervals for the actuators and keeps the uptime high.

Long lifetime and reliability
Warehouses aim for 24/7 operation to meet customer expectations. Downtime for service and repair must be kept to a minimum. Due to the thoroughly tested design and high reliabiity, our actuators require little maintenance and have a high uptime. LINAK Long Life actuators and the lifetime calculator B10 allow you to match the actuator with the service intervals of the mobile robots.
