Actuator solutions for the modern AGV

More and more Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) are superseding manual labour in warehouses and along production lines around the world. For this to be viable, AGVs need to be reliable and incredibly durable. At the same time, focus on the environment increases the demand for electric solutions. LINAK actuators create smooth and precise movement and give owners benefits such as:

  • Robust, yet flexible solution, easy to install
  • Energy efficient movement with no oil spills or maintenance
  • Intelligent contribution to your control system

Reliability and flexibility are keywords for customers when considering AGVs. Vehicles need to be autonomous, reliable and easy to integrate with other applications and control systems. Electric actuators help move, lift and deliver pallets, rolls and racks, along with carts and containers. Materials can be anything from paper or plastic, to rubber or steel. 

Make it simple – make it last
No two product lines are alike. Some need a single lift to level material, while others require more sophisticated automation. Electric actuator solutions are simple to install, as they require only power and signal cables to function. LINAK provides a broad variety of solutions – all thoroughly tested to withstand both time and harsh conditions.

Be energy efficient and save maintenance
Electric actuator solutions have no pumps or compressors. This means standby energy consumption is very low. But even when the actuator is active, energy consumption is kept low, which again prolongs its service life. Furthermore, the absence of hoses, pumps and compressors also renders periodic maintenance redundant.

Integrate intelligent solutions in your system
The market for effective AGVs is expanding rapidly and, as environmental focus increases, electric drivetrains have become the standard solution. Electric actuators integrate smoothly with any BUS communication system, allowing staff to monitor and control every actuator remotely.
