Current Trends

Lift trucks and other warehouse material handling machines operate in challenging environments with high duty-cycles. The 24/7 warehouse operation of the future will be increasingly electrified and robotically automated. For decades, the ZAPI GROUP has led the electrification within the material handling space, providing drivetrain solutions powered by lead-acid batteries to the transition toward lithium battery-powered vehicles.

Shifts in Consumer Buying Patterns

Online shopping is increasing demands in productivity and efficiency from every area in the warehouse, requiring low lifters, pallet stackers, reach trucks, and heavy trucks to operate reliability on a higher duty cycle.

Advancements in Lithium Battery Technology

Offsetting acquisition costs come benefits in increased energy capacity, reduced maintenance and operator safety. Lithium energy storage solutions enable operators bring high reliability, simplified maintenance and consistent performance to meet duty cycle demands.

Operational Demands

Warehouse and rental companies’ operational demands are driving a trend towards on-board charging for Class I counterbalanced lift trucks. Higher energy density lithium batteries coupled with on-board charging provide greater efficiency and make rental fleets easier to manage and deploy.

Charging System Options

Sourcing the right battery charging solutions for material handling machines is a critical design consideration. Optimal, rapid and safe recharging of lead-acid or lithium-ion battery packs is an overlooked value-add of Delta-Q’s charging algorithms. With over 200+ programs available for batteries offered by the most popular industrial battery manufacturers, Delta-Q solutions ensure optimal battery health for performance and longevity.

The next consideration is ruggedness. Our charging solutions are designed to withstand high levels of vibration, shock, temperature changes (including cold storage) experienced by material handling applications. Delta-Q’s on-board charging solutions are designed to provide operators with long service life, high reliability and minimal servicing in these environments.
