If the operator hits the emergency stop switch or leaves the platform, the emergency brake stops the truck immediately. In addition, the truck brakes automatically when the operator releases the drive switch. The scale installation is also important for the safety of the truck: It warns the operator if the load exceeds the nominal load capacity of the pallet stacker. When cornering, the Linde Curve Assistant adjusts the speed and prevents dangerous situations. The operator is secure on the padded platform even during more rapid travel.
The L14 - L20 AP pallet stackers have a spring loaded platform which form one unit with the side guards and the tiller head. This construction reduces vibrations and oscillations affecting the operator's body. The flexible standing platform additionally eases work: When folded in, it enables pedestrian operation, so no more climbing on and off during order picking. All control elements are ergonomically arranged and can be reached without effort.
The truck moves at up to 10 km/h through any narrow aisle warehouse with the high torque 2.3 kW three-phase motor. It's load capacity ranges from 1400 kg up to 2000 kg. The strong chassis provides the truck with a high residual load capacity. All load handling processes run very precisely using Linde Load Control. The Soft Landing function protects the fork and the load from an abrupt stop in the end position.
All of the current truck status information is shown on the multi-function display: from load weight and operating hours to service status and battery charge status. Thanks to the CAN bus technology, service technicians have quick access to all truck data. The robust components and encapsulated, maintenance-free three-phase motor reduce servicing intervals of the truck, reducing servicing and operating costs.
