Internal logistics flows

ManuLine provides internal load transport solutions for all industrial sectors – automotive, agri-food, aeronautics, maritime, chemical, health, engineering, metallurgy, electronics, energy and textile. Our design office develops custom-built solutions to meet customer requirements.

Tugger train

Our experience in Lean Manufacturing, i.e. eliminating waste during production, has enabled us to develop our range of tugger trains, also called small trains or milk-run trains. These are single-track train systems that optimise line-side supply. Flows are optimised thanks to one train journey and a quick and easy swap between a full and an empty trolley directly at the workstation. They make aisles safer as there is no need for forklifts and they adapt handling equipment to the containers to offer a custom-built solution.

Trolley

Our handling carts, called trolleys, have wheels to improve the transfer of loads from a point A to a point B. From basic trolleys to rotating and tilting trolleys and trolleys with shelves for commissioning, the solutions offered are easy to use and built to requirements.

Industrial trailer

Finally, our industrial trailers are specially designed to transport large or heavy loads that are frequently used for provisioning between different buildings on the same site.

Why you should trust ManuLine

Fully custom-built, versatile and user-friendly solutions, offered by a responsive team, mean you can find the product that best meets the intralogistic needs of your site.

Lift Storoll

Single-track tugger train to transport your wheeled containers quickly, easily and efficiently to the line side.

Designed for both indoor and outdoor use.

Thanks to its gantry, containers can be inserted and removed on both sides of the train (right and/or left side) in any order, thus improving productivity.

Container raising and lowering is electrically powered by a push button on each mother cart, also known as a wagon. The operation is effortless and extremely fast. The electric energy is then transferred from the tractor by PTO to power the train, thus avoiding the need to add external batteries on the different wagons.

Your wheeled containers are kept raised throughout the run and are stabilised by a mobile safety arm.

Depending on the client’s specifications, the total admissible weight per mother cart is 900 kg.

The tugger train is ideal for moving wheeled containers measuring 1200 x 800 or 1200 x 1000 mm. As products are manufactured to order on site, our design office can accept other specific dimensions on request.

Ideal intra-logistics solution involving transportation by ‘milk-run train’ for wheeled containers that cannot be modified and do not allow floor contact (e.g. for outdoor use).

Advantages:

    • Ease of use and user comfort
    • Operation performed quickly
    • Left and/or right loading and unloading
    • Designed for outdoor use

For all your custom tugger cart system needs, please feel free to contact our ManuLine team. Together we can define the best possible intra-logistics solution tailored to your needs.

Trolley

A handling cart to optimise transport of loads both indoors and out on the same site.

Our user-friendly solutions optimise handling by relieving the operator of physical strain, thus improving productivity.

Whether you require a rotating or tilting trolley for easier content picking, a pine or trestle solution for bulky or sensitive parts, shelves, crates, or a flatbed with rollers for easy transfer to the workstation, you can rely on our design office’s expertise.

Our custom-built carts are easy to use and compatible with all our tugger trains for optimal line-side supply. Trolleys can also be used manually.

Trolley bases come in a variety of materials (word, rubber, non-slip) and can feature sloping corners to hold the load in place and angle irons to make container loading easier.

Crates can be added to optimise the loading area and secure goods during transport. ManuLine offers customised tarpaulins to protect loads.

Wheels are chosen according to the load and type of floor/ground (indoors or outdoors). Wheel size and tyres are studied for optimal use over time.

For increased safety, a dead man brake can be added so the trolley stops immediately when the operator lets go.

It is also possible to add a sprung drawbar to make trolley coupling easier (according to ground types) and build an intra-logistics train.

ManuLine develops 100% modular and customisable solutions according to specifications.

Electric tow tractors

ManuLine provides advice on choosing the right model for your requirements (indoor or outdoor use, ramp climbing, battery life, total load to be carried, etc.). ManuLine will ensure train/tractor coupling compatibility whether the company already owns equipment or not.

If the company only has a forklift, we advise against using it to tow the train. As it does not feature front-wheel steering, it may damage the drawbar and consequently the tugger train when turning.

AGV system

Automated load transport system. The containers move automatically as a train or unit. Ideal for repetitive short or medium-distance journeys. The system is suitable for all environment types, even the least accessible.

This self-driving solution is compatible with all our tugger train, trolley and industrial trailer systems.

Our automated vehicles feature a laser scanner with a 180-degree view to guarantee pedestrian safety. If the vehicle detects an operator in its path, it stops automatically. This optimal coverage system can also be used to detect handling equipment on the self-driving vehicle’s circuit and ensure that loads are transported safely.

Other devices, such as warning lights or horns, can be added according to requirements.

ManuLine experts offer a comprehensive solution, including study of specifications, design, manufacture, installation and programming of automated vehicles in the factory.
