Tugger trains – tugger train system liftrunner


STILL is exclusively offering a complete tugger train system called “Liftrunner”.

The CX-T or R 06 tractors tow the “Liftrunner” trains consisting of E and C frames that safely hold trolleys of various shapes and are easy to load and unload.

The user-friendly “Liftrunner”-system allows the trolleys to be pushed into the trailers at floor level.

A modular system of train elements allows individual adaptation to any in-house situation. The trailers are compatible with each other and a quick coupling mechanism enables safe connecting and disconnecting of the trailers to the train which can be up to five E frames or four C frames long. The trailers carry quarter, semi or full pallets of various sizes up to a maximum of 2,000 x 1,200 mm or cage trolleys, rack trolleys etc.

For travelling the trolleys are raised hydraulically or pneumatically so that only the larger wheels of the “Liftrunner” trailers touch the floor. This reduces the noise and spares the wheels of the trolleys which cannot get caught anywhere and will therefore increase the service life. The trolleys are automatically locked by locking pins to prevent them from rolling sideways out of the trailer.

Depending on the tractor and the trailer load the trains can travel at speeds up to 15 km/h with excellent driving characteristics. The silent polyurethane rollers of each “liftrunner” exactly follow the track of the tractor even around the sharpest bends (only approximately 2% deviation over the full length of the train). The turning radius of the standard version is only 3.9 meters.

At the destination the operator can simply pull the trolleys out of the train; an “ejector” activated by a foot lever compensates for the initial inertia of the trolley. The trains can be loaded or unloaded from the left or the right, because the couplings of the “Liftrunner” trailers allow loading into the train in both directions.

The full trolleys are rolled to the work places and exchanged for empties. This reduces the storage space required at the assembly line and the existing space can be better utilised, because space consuming racking is not necessary.

The innovative plastic trolleys from STILL make your logistics processes even more ergonomic and efficient. Light weight, flexible use, tray areas at comfortable heights and smooth rolling characteristics make the trolleys indispensable assistants.
