L-Matic (AC) Series 1183 Automated Truck

Efficient pallet stacker

Counterbalanced stacking and transporting

The autonomous Linde L-Matic (AC) pallet stacker, with cantilevered forks, simplifies the transport of closed carriers and the receipt of goods at transfer stations that are not accessible with load wheel supports, for example on conveyor systems.

The counterbalanced truck, which can also be operated manually at any time, can handle loads of up to 1.6 tonnes and lifting heights of 1.9 metres. It can be used individually or integrated as part of an automated fleet.

The intelligent navigational system functions without the addition of tracks in the floor or laser reflectors. The L-Matic (AC) can therefore be used flexibly, in a wide variety of different environments or in environments that change frequently. Its comprehensive suite of safety features reliably perceives people and obstacles in its area of operation.


  • The smart safety system helps collect data about its working environment optically and adaptively reacts.
  • Adopting SICK safety CPU module and multiple safety scanners, 360° all-round safety protection and 3D obstacle detection is achieved.
  • Laser optics and camera scanning enable the recognition of people, other trucks, and obstacles, and ensures that collisions are reliably avoided.
  • Truck reduces its speed accordingly and will come to a halt if it recognises an obstacle that doesn’t move out of its way. This functionality simultaneously guarantees high levels of both safety and productivity.
  • Can be stopped at any time using emergency stop buttons mounted around its frame.
  • Various acoustic and visual warning signals are built in.
  • Should the truck need to be moved out of a hazardous area in an emergency, it can be controlled manually at any time using the drawbar.
  • Meets EN ISO3691-4 safety requirements.

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.

  • When placing loads, the driving/steering/lifting actions are carried out simultaneously, reducing the waiting time and further improving efficiency.
  • Interacts with other automated facilities such as doors and roller conveyors, and can be used for the automation of repetitive working processes either individually or as part of a fleet.
  • Via the system, driving tasks can be set directly from the warehouse management or ERP system.
  • Innovative navigation technology allows MATIC trucks to get to work in a new or changing working environment within a short time.
  • Anticipates and reacts to obstacles, and will automatically resume its task when the person or other truck is no longer in its monitoring zone.
  • The automatic and manual modes can be quickly switched with the press of a button.
  • Achieves a maximum forward speed of up to 2m/s, a backward speed of up to 0.8m/s and a turning speed of up to 0.7m/s.
  • 7-inch touch screen displaying vehicle status/alarm indicator, real-time task management, real-time path display, basic parameter setting and fault diagnosis.
  • All truck data relevant for maintenance of the L-Matic (AC) can be read out using a service laptop. It’s also possible to monitor the pallet stacker via a remote diagnostic system.
  • Electronic and mechanical components are easily accessible.
  • Maintenance-free AC motor meaning the L-Matic (AC)’s operational readiness is therefore guaranteed for a long time.
