Tugger train solutions

LINAK actuators help lift and drop or fix load carriers on tugger train trailers.

Actuators for high flexibility in tugger trains

Today’s lean manufacturing requires efficient and flexible supply. Tugger trains offer a wide spectrum of trailers with various load carrier types. With our portfolio of actuators, we help you design the right solution for lifting or locking. They are ideal for these functions as they feature:

  • High power density
  • Standard interfaces for easy integration
  • Long lifetime and reliability

High power density
The slim design of tugger train trailers calls for a compact design of the lifting unit and high power density. The compact and integrated design of LINAK® actuators makes them ideal for use in these trailers. A thrust of up to 15,000 N per actuator is available and you can have up to 8 actuators running in parallel.

Standard interfaces for easy integration
The high variety of load carriers benefit from standard interfaces for easy and quick adaption to customised designs. Automated tow tractors require control and monitoring of the entire train. LINAK actuators with standard communication interfaces like CAN bus or IO-link meet these requirements.

Long lifetime and reliability
Assembly lines in manufacturing operate in multiple shifts. Downtime for servicing and repairing tugger trains is not acceptable during the shift, or must be kept low. Thanks to LINAK's Long Life actuators and the B10 lifetime calculator, you can choose an actuator that matches planned service intervals. LINAK actuators are maintenance-free due to their thoroughly tested design and high reliability.
