Concept of Slewing Gear Drives and Chain Drives of Linde Forklifts
A milestone in the development of industrial vehicles was the beginning of our ongoing successful cooperation with Linde Material Handling. After Porsche had already designed slewing gear drives and chain drives for Linde, at the beginning of the 1980s the sports car manufacturer was contracted to design a new generation of forklifts.
In the meantime, Porsche styling for Linde has become a multiple award-winning trademark. Linde forklifts have again recently been awarded the “red dot award for product design” from the renowned Design Zentrum North Rhine-Westphalia. The product design has become an integral part of the “Linde” brand for Linde Material Handling, as well as a decisive competitive advantage. Porsche Engineering also supported Linde Material Handling with development tasks in addition to the design.
