Linde forklifts with their own Li-Ion solution


Linde electric counterbalanced trucks in the load range from 1.4 to 1.8 tonnes with lithium-ion battery

They made their debut at this year’s “World of Material Handling (WoMH)” customer event, and now the first counterbalanced trucks with lithium-ion battery from Linde Material Handling have been launched on the market. Their great benefit is that they make fleet operators much more independent with regard to power supply – especially in multi-shift operation. This is thanks to the higher energy density and efficiency of the incorporated battery cells, as well as the fact that interim charging is possible any time – factors which result in significantly longer uptime. …more

Issue resolved – safety increased


Linde Material Handling’s LSP driver assistance system now also available for IC forklift models

The innovative Linde Safety Pilot (LSP) is now optionally available also for forklift trucks with internal combustion engine. Being the world’s most modern assistance system for counterbalanced trucks, it supports the forklift driver and reduces risks during operation. The sophisticated system continuously monitors and indicates a wide range of different vehicle parameters during operation, such as the lift height, load centre of gravity and driving speed, and it even intervenes in safety-critical situations, depending on the version. So the driver has all the relevant details at hand. Operating and driving errors can therefore be effectively avoided and the risk of accidents significantly reduced. The LSP is available for all Linde diesel, LPG and CNG forklift models in the load range from 1.4 to 8 tonnes.  …more

Experience the future of intralogistics at first hand


Linde Material Handling uses 3D hologram to showcase the future of logistics at WoMH

Goods which transport themselves. Trucks which generate more energy while in operation than they consume. Cluster logistics using a completely networked warehouse. Science fiction? Maybe so – but with the emphasis on ‘science’. Linde Material Handling is taking a glimpse into the future, making predictions based on its current competencies, products and projects already in the pipeline: just how might the world of intralogistics look in 2030? Which trends are already emerging today and which predictions will come true in the future? The answers to all of these questions will be given as part of a 3D hologram presentation at the upcoming ‘World of Material Handling’ (WoMH) event. …more

Full power for the drives of the future


Linde Material Handling presents lithium-ion and fuel cell technology at WoMH

The availability of transport vehicles is crucial in logistics, and has a direct effect on the efficiency of processes. The energy system plays a key role in this, particularly where electric forklift trucks are concerned: charging, maintenance and battery changes all take time. But there are alternative systems that offer rapid charging or refuelling, and better energy efficiency. Linde Material Handling is presenting innovative developments in lithium-ion and fuel cell technology at the "World of Material Handling". These developments include the first Linde forklift trucks with lithium-ion batteries, warehouse technology trucks, and hydrogen-powered trucks as used by DB Schenker, Daimler and BMW, for example. Both technologies increase availability and thus productivity in intralogistics. …more

The information superhighway runs right through warehouses


At WoMH, Linde Material Handling demonstrates the opportunities created by digital networking

As is the case in so many industries, logistics processes, and thus the flow of materials, are increasingly being directed digitally. As a result, even industrial trucks are becoming a part of digital industry. Whether with universally electronically controlled trucks, the innovative sensor technology found in Linde Safety Pilot, the connect: fleet management solution or other digital solutions, Linde Material Handling has laid the foundations to be able to support its customers in the digitalisation of their business processes. At ‘World of Material Handling’ (WoMH), Linde will exhibit – among other things – a new localisation technology which allows the location of trucks or transport containers in warehouses and production halls to be recorded in real time to within a centimetre. …more

Tailor-made solutions for individual processes


Linde Material Handling presents new variants, options and customer solutions

For years now, modern industrial companies have seen increasing differentiation and diversification: the demand for a wider range of variants, options and individually manufactured products is rising. This has led to changes in what is required of production processes, and has brought about the advent of 3D printing. At the same time, the rise of e-commerce has resulted in smaller lot sizes and, in some cases, fundamental changes to the requirements for order picking and the movement of goods. For a long time now, the variety of its solutions and product variants has been a trademark of Linde Material Handling, and this is evident in the new developments the company is presenting at the customer event "World of Material Handling" (WoMH). …more

Intralogistics is turning to automation
