Linde Material Handling has launched the Sinergo portfolio of seven pallet trucks and pallet stackers.

The models feature a compact chassis and updated tiller.

Depending on the chosen application, the trucks can achieve up to a 6 per cent increase in output, while at the same time consuming 20 per cent less energy.

The three pallet trucks, models T16, T18 and T20, with load capacities of 1.6, 1.8 and 2 tonnes respectively, and four pallet stackers, models L10B, L10, L12 and L12i with 1- and 1.2-tonne load capacities, are designed for pedestrian operation in the warehouse.

A system that regulates travel speed according to the tiller position has been added to five of the seven truck models.

A potentiometer measures the angle between the tiller and chassis and automatically adjusts the travel speed to the walking pace of the operator.

This ensures a greater degree of safety, particularly when transporting goods along warehouse roadways.

Many tried and tested ‘Linde standards’ have also been retained in the trucks.

These include the long tiller arm, hinged low down on the chassis to place the operator at a convenient distance from the truck and to facilitate manoeuvring within the tightest of spaces due to a more efficient leverage effect.

The creep function offers the operator yet further support.

The creep speed control allows the operator to manoeuvre the device at a reduced speed even with the tiller in the upright position.

The tiller head has also retained its curved design, providing wrap-around protection for the operator’s hands.

The electronic control of the lift mast functions (called Optilift) is another tried and tested feature that is included in the pallet stackers.

The truck’s operator is able to transfer loads to and from storage carefully and accurately using the switches located on the tiller head.

High-performance traction power for the pallet trucks and pallet stackers is provided by a powerful AC motor with booster effect.

The booster offers the power unit increased torque at low speed to enable the truck to deal effortlessly with steep ramps, uneven surfaces and inclines without rolling backwards.

The top speed of the trucks is 6 km/h whether laden or unladen.

Key performance parameters, such as acceleration or braking characteristics, can be set and then modified at any time by service engineers.

High residual capacities offer the operator additional options.

The high stability of the mast on the pallet stackers at high lift protects the load, as does the soft landing function, which brakes the load automatically the closer the forks come to the ground.

At the same time, the integrated initial lift of the Linde L12i pallet stacker gives it an even greater degree of flexibility.

The L12i model can make light work of conventional ramps, loading ramps and uneven surfaces by raising the load.

The ergonomic tiller head is also a key feature of the pallet trucks and pallet stackers.

Every important operator function has been integrated into the tiller head, some of them twice, which means that the truck can be steered effortlessly using either hand.

The length of the pallet trucks has been reduced by 8 per cent to increase manoeuvrability where space is most limited.

In the pallet stackers, the mast has been integrated into the chassis, meaning this model too is now slightly smaller.

End-of-stroke slowdown with the tiller in the horizontal position is achieves an even greater standard of user-friendliness.

If the operator pushes the tiller too far down, the resistance increases.

The operator can feel the brakes coming on and can react accordingly.

If the operator suddenly lets go of the tiller, a hydraulic cylinder slows the truck down and returns the tiller smoothly to the upright position.

Large storage compartments built into the battery cover provide additional convenience.

Work materials such as shrink film and pens can be stored in these for the operator to use.

The visibility through the mast is an added plus.

The distance between the mast profiles is wide enough to give the operator a good upwards view when placing goods into storage or retrieving them.

The robust steel chassis is designed to safeguard important components.

A material called Exxtral, whose robustness and durability protects the truck from deformation, was chosen for the motor and battery covers.

The tiller and tiller head are manufactured from Grivory, which is both robust and lightweight.

The load arm tips are produced from cast steel, meaning these too are highly robust.

With a display that indicates battery capacity, operating status, maintenance requirements and operating hours, the user is in complete control.

Servicing can be carried out rapidly using the CAN bus connection – through which all vehicle data can be read out using a notebook computer – because all components are easily accessible.

The AC motor is completely maintenance-free.

The procedure for replacing batteries has become more flexible.

Batteries in pallet trucks can be removed and replaced vertically using hooks, or from the side using a hand pallet stacker and battery rollers.

Linde fleet data management modules are also available, to regulate truck access using PINs and carry out software-supported analyses of truck data in order to optimise the truck fleet further by type and quantity.
