Linde Material Handling demonstrated its latest product innovations at last week’s CeMAT exhibition in Hanover.
It showed its automated very narrow aisle man down truck, developed in partnership with E+K, which offers an automated interface to deliver labour savings, reduced breakage costs and absolute process reliability.
Linde also showcased an automated tow tractor prototype P50 C With teach-in vision-guided robotic technology. It navigates via camera sensor technology that is integrated in the truck. Different routes can be programmed, and imported to other via USB.
In terms of operator safety improvements, they launched a fully rotating, a reverse proximity alarm with automatic speed reduction, and a warning device that projects a blue spot into the travel path and junctions where visibility is impaired.
The firm unveiled its new EPION warehouse concept truck. This has a modular load interface allowing multiple tools to be fitted to the drive unit producing a variety of trucks with remote control facility.
Lithium ion battery technology, was used to fuel the EPION, the T16 warehouse truck and 387 counterbalance truck prototypes on display. A P30C tow tractor prototype was powered by emission-free fuel cell technology.
