Quickly and safely around the narrow aisle warehouse
Maximum performance in the high rack warehouse
Linde Material Handling very narrow aisle trucks enable exceptional pace of load handling: For an assumed shelf height of seven meters, they process up to 30 pallets per hour - substantially more than counterbalanced forklifts or reach trucks. Decisive for this, amongst other things, is that the forklift can move and lift at the same time. For example, a pallet can be moved very quickly at considerable height in a diagonal direction and at consistently high speed.
Systematically achieving greater productivity
Increased safety for everyone
Narrow aisles are difficult to view from the truck. Linde turret trucks therefore have a range of safety devices to minimize the accident risk to the driver and other employees. For example, the optional Aisle Safety Assistant (ASA) triggers targeted commands so that the forklift moves more slowly if the surface is uneven, or restricts the lift height if there are obstructions, such as ceiling supports. Working safety is ensured by the driver having to operate the control unit with both hands and a dead-man’s switch on the seat, or the floor of the cab to be able to move the truck.
Healthy work place in the forklift truck
The VNA forklift provides the driver with an ergonomic work place: All the control elements are laid out ergonomically and easy to reach. Control is easy with multi-axis levers and there is plenty of storage space to make working easier in the spacious cab. Various mirrors and camera systems improve all-round view, which enables the driver to avoid strenuous body movements.
Automatic navigation through narrow aisles - how does it work?
The starting point for goods transport is always the customer’s warehouse management system: The central system sends the necessary target data to the receiver in the forklift via a WiFi network. The truck determines its current position by RFID transponder or barcodes. At the same time the lift-height measurement system integrated into the forklift provides information on the current height. The forklift system compares this information with the stored map of the warehouse. This achieves high-precision 3D navigation. The driver just operates the drive function.
