Linde Safety Pilot:

Perfecting the art of safety
Even the best forklift truck driver in the world cannot remain completely focused at all times. And nobody can ever know the exact limits of a truck and its load in every situation. However, Linde is now offering an electronic assistance system that always intervenes when critical ranges are reached — and before the limits are exceeded. The new Linde Safety Pilot leaves no scope for risk or compromise. Safety-related information is electronically analysed and evaluated during every driving and lifting phase. If a potential safety risk is detected, the truck functionality is regulated automatically.

Minimum risk
Linde forklift trucks are renowned on the market for the outstanding quality that they offer, not least in terms of safety. However, human error remains a key cause of operating errors and significant accidents, thereby continuing to hinder work processes. In order to reduce the margin for human error as far as possible – whether it results from a lack of knowledge or a lack of concentration in stressful situations – Linde has developed a unique and intelligent driver assistance system: the Linde Safety Pilot.

An intelligent passenger
Revolutionary: The Linde Safety Pilot helps the forklift truck driver to prevent operating errors and driving errors, thereby minimising the risk of an accident occurring. The Linde Safety Pilot provides support within the maximum load range, regulates the lift and tilt functions based on the lift load and lift height, and offers an enhanced level of safety when handling loads. As a result, forklift truck drivers are given the green light to focus on increasing productivity.

Focusing on productivity
The Linde Safety Pilot offers more. To make each working day that bit easier, the Linde Safety Pilot offers the driver numerous functions to make working with a Linde forklift truck even safer and more efficient. In addition to its active intervention and regulation safety features, the Linde Safety Pilot offers a wide array of additional comfort features. These features support the driver by allowing settings to be pre-configured manually and then checked using the electronic display.

A tailored level of safety
Visualised comfort feature or active intervention — you can choose. The Linde Safety Pilot can be tailored to your individual safety requirements thanks to the „Select“ and „Active“ variants.

Linde BlueSpotTM :

Silent safety with the optical driving path warning system
The BlueSpotTM is an innovative optical driving path warning system for industrial trucks, which ensures greater safety in aisles and especially in confusing crossing areas. The BlueSpotTM consists of two very bright LED lights, which are attached to the top of the driver's protective roof frame and project a large blue spot onto the floor. This warns pedestrians and forklift drivers of approaching forklift trucks.

The advantages:

  • Early warning of an approaching industrial truck due to a preceding blue spot
  • LED technology for high brightness with low power consumption
  • Not sensitive to shaking or vibration
  • Long service life of the light and the diffusion disc due to very low operating temperature
  • Very positive reception from drivers and employees in comparison with acoustic warning systems

There are now two new options as an upgrade kit to ensure optimum adjustment to the relevant usage conditions.

Red option:

  • BlueSpotTM with red LED light
  • Blue lights are already used for other warnings
  • Alternative colour choice for clear warning signal
  • Choice between blue and red spot colour allows for the colour to be adjusted according to the floor
  • Greatest possible contrast to the floor ensures optimum warning effect

Option with arrow:

  • BlueSpotTM in the form of a blue arrow
  • Arrow shows the direction in which the forklift truck is moving
  • Clear indication of forklift truck position at confusing crossings

Linde hydrostatic transmission:

Precision:
Direction selection and travel speed are precisely controlled via oil flow, enabling the operator to negotiate gradients and uneven surfaces smoothly, safely, and in complete control.

Efficiency:
The Linde hydrostatic drive transmission has no clutch, brakes, or gears and none of the costs and wear associated with these components. Operating costs are therefore minimized.

Human vibrations:

Linde Material Handling has been working intensively on the research and development of technologies that prevent vehicle vibrations for over 20 years. Linde MH leads in reducing so-called “human vibrations.”
In the meantime there are clear guidelines in this regard from Brussels: the EU Directive “Vibration” 2002/44/EC came into force on 8 March 2007. It obliges companies to protect their employees from noise and vibrations. Linde forklift trucks are well below the thresholds it lays down.

This success has been achieved by means of various design measures: with regard to the current generation of forklift trucks we have adopted an innovative concept in which the mast is directly attached to the combi-axle. Both is like the tilting cylinder separated from the driver’s cabin and chassis by maintenance-free rubber supports. Air-suspension seats protect the driver effectively from harmful jolts, oscillations and vibrations.
With the Human Vibration Exposure Calculator, you can determine the vibration output during individual applications and a vehicle's permitted duration of use for a particular route, as well as the daily exposure value incurred over all applications on the basis of the acceleration and exposure time measured.

Life cycle costs:

Considering the overall costs, products from Linde Material Handling have an advantage over those of other providers for several reasons. On the one hand they are global leaders when it comes to energy efficiency, and on the other hand they have extremely long service lives.

They are equipped with the latest drive train and emissions technology, such as highly developed diesel engines and hydrostatic transmission. Parts subject to wear are largely eliminated. The proportion of recyclable materials amounts to over 90 percent. This results in low oil, energy and raw materials consumption. Linde forklifts are also notable for their low noise and exhaust emissions. The procurement costs of a Linde forklift are balanced by the lower operating costs. Linde forklift trucks are economical in terms of fuel consumption, and minimal depreciation also contributes to low costs. So acquiring one has a positive effect on the balance sheet.

Drive concepts:

The availability of fossil energy sources is limited. Their price is rising, their consumption damages the global climate. We are confronting the technical challenge this poses: Linde Material Handling is working intensively on the development of the most environmentally friendly and economical vehicles possible and is expediting the development of alternative drive technologies.

Given the current state of technology, electric motors for forklift trucks are the most environmentally friendly drive system. Thanks to a multitude of technical innovations, the new electric forklift trucks from Linde set standards in terms of performance and economy. However, in the event of heavy demands, their performance is insufficient. Here forklift trucks with combustion cells are superior. Linde is examining various technologies that save fuel. For example, start-stop automatic drives: forklift trucks are on average in idle for about 30 percent of their operating time.

But only use of the hydrogen-powered fuel cell promises energy that manages without the emission of environmentally harmful carbon dioxide. Together with partners Linde is working on the development of practical solutions here. Until this has been achieved, natural gas suggests itself as an interim solution. Its energy density is admittedly lower, but in return its CO2 emissions are lower too than those of conventional fuels. The motors of the future will be more economical and emit lower quantities of pollutants such as soot and carbon dioxide. In the long term the aim is to develop alternative drive technologies that manage without fossil fuels and emit less soot and no CO2.
