The Linde Material Handling FT08 - FT20 Modular Logistic Train

Logistic Trains FT08 – FT20

A Modular Long-Distance Runner

Efficient Material Supply over Long Distances

The modularly assembled Linde FT08 – FT20 factory train can be used in both indoor and outdoor areas, and ensures synchronized material flow over long distances in the company premises. The logistics train features chassis suspension and can bear loads of up to 2,000 kg per module. It therefore provides a solution for effective material and goods transportation, above all in sectors with complex manufacturing logistics, such as the automobile or food industries. The directionally-stable steering of the trains provides outstanding driving stability and small turning circles, and with the additional crab-steering system, the trains can also easily be moved sideways. Plus, thanks to quick and easy to fit weather protection, the transported goods are always protected from environmental factors.

Characteristics

Safety

Transported goods and goods carrier modules are lifted clear of the ground. The suspension of the factory train protects the load effectively against shock. All modules are connected to the tow tractor by data cable. The train can only begin to move if all goods carriers are raised: If a carrier is still lowered, the drive train in the tow tractor automatically locks up. The lift function can be operated centrally from the tow tractor, or from the individual modules. The driving speed is automatically regulated while cornering until the last axle is moving straight ahead again, reducing the risk of tipping over.

  • Immobilizer active if carriers are lowered
  • Cornering assistant helps to avoid tipping over
  • Load protecting transportation
  • Carrier modules connected by data cable

Handling

With the Linde factory train, the loads are pushed into the carrier module on pallet roller frames and raised for transportation. The modular configuration of the train allows the transportation method to be adapted to different types of goods and requirements. Even in narrow paths, the roller frames can be rapidly and smoothly loaded, raised, and moved. The driver can easily open and shut the optional weather protection manually, without having to bend down.

  • Adaptation to all types of transportation
  • Shock-free transportation
  • Easy-to-use weather protection

Service

Should defects arise, the trailer modules of the factory train can swiftly be individually replaced. The lift motors operate maintenance-free, and the electrical and mechanical components are easily accessible for servicing. The train's on-board data network makes it easier for service technicians to set customer specific parameters and system diagnostics.

  • Easily accessible components
  • Low-maintenance trailer modules
  • On-board data network

Optional Equipment

BlueSpot™

Lane warning device Linde BlueSpot™ Enhances safety during operation as the LED spot makes the forklift noiselessly visible.

Guide rails

Additional guide rails can be installed in order to reduce wear when inserting and removing the goods carriers into and out of the trailers.

Special paintwork

The LT logistics trains can also be supplied in numerous paintwork styles in addition to the Linde red.

German Road Traffic Act (StVO) compliant lighting

The tow tractors and trailers of the logistics train can be equipped with lighting that is compliant with the German Road Traffic Act.
