Solutions for material handling

Electric actuators and columns for smart and reliable lifting solutions in automated warehouses and production.

Solid uptime for material handling applications

24/7 operation and high efficiency are key requirements for battery-powered vehicles like Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), pallet trucks, tugger trains, and other equipment in warehouses and manufacturing.

Breaks are only taken for battery recharges or scheduled service intervals. Real-time monitoring and diagnostics are of great importance to automated systems to keep uptime high.

LINAK® actuators and lifting columns are the link between automated machinery and the goods that need handling, and they have relevant features such as:

  • Compact design
  • Condition monitoring and precise control
  • Long life

We offer a modular product portfolio to provide the right solution for applications with different requirements, such as underride carts with pin hooks, top-lifting modules for trolleys, racks or pallets, tugger trains, pallet trucks, and cobot palletisers.

Gain space with compact design

LINAK IC Integrated Controller™ (IC™) has several features that enable a compact design. IC offers a power supply of up to 48 V and built-in industrial interfaces like CANopen, IO-link, industrial Ethernet, or I/O. Additional components, such as converters or motor controllers, extra communication modules, or external sensors for position control are now obsolete, which results in a compact design.


Keep uptime high with condition monitoring and precise control

Feedback signals via standard interfaces enable remote data monitoring and diagnostics. This makes it easier to predict and schedule maintenance intervals, troubleshoot, and allocate an on-site service. The actuator or column could even become part of the digital twin of the application. As a result, uptime can be kept high, and downtime is reduced to a minimum. Due to this precise control, high operational efficiency is achieved, which also allows for parallel run.


Go the distance

With LINAK Long Life actuators you can match the actuator with the lifetime of other key components, such as drive wheels or battery. This makes it easy to schedule maintenance service intervals and to avoid extra stops. And with our B10 lifetime calculator, you can also get a qualified estimate of the actuator lifetime, when used in your specific application.
