L-Matic (AC) Series 1170 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.


  • 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 any of several 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.
  • 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.
  • In mixed work processes, the truck assists people in their work without safety restrictions.
  • 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 means the L-Matic (AC)’s operational readiness is therefore guaranteed for a long time.
