Intralogistics and Automation Solutions for Your Sector

The rapid development of the markets requires large-scale adaptations in intralogistics across all sectors. Solutions for automated intralogistics from Linde Material Handling can help your company to work more safely, efficiently, and economically. You will find an overview of the various industries, your requirements, and the Linde solutions that have already been implemented.

Mechanical and Plant Engineering

In mechanical and plant engineering, the efficiency of your production process will primarily be determined by your internal material flow. It is crucial to ensure that the production lines are seamlessly supplied with materials, so that intralogistics and production form one smooth yet flexible process. Interconnected production environments and automated processes lay the foundation for the smart factory of tomorrow. Our application examples show what has already been achieved with Linde solutions.
