INNOVATION IN THE WORLD OF MATERIAL HANDLING: LITHIUM BATTERIES IN THE INDUSTRIAL MARKET
21/09/2017 – Blog, Lithium batteries for industry
Coordinated by Marco Righi, the Founder of Flash Battery, the first workshop on lithium batteries for the industrial sector was held at the headquarters of Piazzalunga.
Piazzalunga is active in the materials handling sector. The company handles the sales, assistance, and rental of forklift trucks and cleaning machinery.
The goal of Piazzalunga is to meet its customers’ needs, ever since it was founded. Now, with lithium, the company can meet demands it could not meet before.
“In 2015, we started experimenting with lithium batteries. Initially, we worked with a partner that was not sufficiently structured to respond to market demands. But with Flash Battery, we’ve enjoyed their lengthy experience with lithium batteries in the industrial sector, combined with their great professionalism. That’s one of the reasons why we asked Marco Righi to speak at this event”, explained Luana Piazzalunga.
Over the life of a lead-acid battery, maintenance costs may actually exceed the cost of the battery itself. They include:
These costs are not often taken into consideration, thus making lead-acid technology appear cheaper.
Actually, if all these factors are considered, lithium on balance is economically favourable, besides offering major benefits in terms of performance and production efficiency.
