Optimal Paths when Picking
Solutions for any Working Height
Linde offers a wide range of order picking equipment to suit all shelf heights, aisle widths, and order-picking methods. The V-model, for example, offers a maximum picking height of twelve meters. Linde has developed special design features that simplify the process of picking for every height – from the layout of the control platform and control panels, to the fold-out cab railings.
Working Ergonomically at every Level
In order to be able to pick in a focused and productive manner, people need ergonomic and comfortable workplaces. That is the principle upon which every detail of the design of these order pickers is based: The low entry height is gentle on the legs when mounting and dismounting, platforms with non-slip mats that are decoupled from the chassis by rubber supports reduce the effect of vibrations, and operation is simple thanks to ergonomically arranged and shaped control panels. When appropriate, the driver can operate the truck's functions from two positions. Models designed for working at higher levels also feature larger cabins with lower railings and tilt barriers to the sides. Ultimately, working high up is as easy and safe as working at floor level.
Whether it is while the order picker is moving up and down or during driving, the operator's entire body remains safely within the confines of the truck – aided, among other things, by compact steering and a generous cab area. The various assistance systems are also important: For example, the truck automatically reduces speed while going round bends. The same applies for driving with an elevated cabin. The optional personal protection system monitors the operational path via a scanner, stopping the truck if there are obstacles. In addition, technicians define fixed lifting and lowering stops in the forklift system depending on the site, meaning that low ceilings or uneven flooring no longer represent a risk.
Bespoke Trucks for Rapid Order Picking
How high up are the goods? How large and heavy are they? What picking frequency does the operator need to achieve? The answers are different for every user. That's why Linde develops entirely individual order pickers based on a modular system, featuring, for example, different mast heights, working platforms, chassis sizes, and operating and control concepts. Ultimately the truck is perfectly suited to the task at hand and makes every task easier.
Driving Forward the Development of the Order Pickers
Linde is constantly developing its order pickers, aiming to make working conditions even safer and more ergonomic for operators, which is why, for example, the latest generation of order picking devices feature an even lower entry height. At the same time, the modular concept is always in focus, meaning the number of equipment options is constantly growing.
FIVE TIMES THE PERFORMANCE
Safety and Efficiency – Made to Measure
Linde order pickers are based on a modular concept. But users do not just choose their mast and motor, or the chassis of their model: they can do so much more – especially with regards to operation and safety. Options include, among other things, assistance systems, various mounting systems for work equipment, buttons that allow walking alongside the truck, acoustic warning signals, mirror modules, and ergonomic backrest upholstery.
