K-Matic Series 5231 Automated Very Narrow Aisle Truck

Functional Logistics Robot


Reliable logistics in narrow aisle warehouses

The Linde K-Matic autonomously driven turret truck is suitable for loads of up to 1.5 tonnes, and lift heights of up to 12 metres. The intelligent geo-navigation system guides the K-matic safely without additional guide rails in the floor or laser reflectors, and is compatible with all common narrow aisle applications. Whether as an individual truck carrying out defined process steps, or as part of a centrally controlled fleet of robotic trucks, the superior functionality of the K-Matic provides high handling performance even for complex operating requirements. When doing so, the truck interacts seamlessly with the customer’s infrastructure, such as belt conveyors or packing stations.


  • The navigation technology, laser and camera-based safety equipment steer the K-Matic safely through its surroundings, reliably detecting people or other obstacles as it does so.
  • Equipped with emergency stop buttons, acoustic warning signals and flashing lights.

Linde Robotics trucks are designed to work in a shared environment with humans with the user-friendly interface providing all needed controls and information at a glance.

  • This truck is controlled by Supervisor software that optimally coordinates the tasks and routing of all MATIC trucks in use. The system is compatible with all major warehouse management and ERP systems and converts the necessary materials flow into movement tasks.
  • Trouble-free shelf stacking and removal processes are assured thanks to 3D pallet recognition with integrated distance monitoring.
  • The laser and camera-supported safety system guarantees that this VNA truck can move around in areas with normal operating traffic without any significant loss of time. In this way the areas being monitored around the truck are adapted to the speed of travel and steering angle. If the truck has stopped because an obstacle has been detected, it continues with the task as soon as the way is free again.
  • Changes to the work environment can be remapped in a short time thanks to the laser measurement stored within the system. A 7-inch touch screen displays robotic truck, battery and system status; real time task management and report; intuitive path localisation; service mode with PIN access and log extraction via USB.
  • By entering a PIN on the 7-inch touch screen, the technician activates the service mode and can safely carry out the required servicing tasks on the easily accessible components.
  • Truck data that is relevant for maintenance is transmitted via wireless link and evaluated by diagnostics software.
  • The service technician is able to carry out forward-looking servicing, for example, wear and minor damage is recognised early, the required inspection intervals and part replacements are calculated and then planned, ensuring maximum availability.
