Over the past few years GNB has been working towards developing a Lithium-ion offering, which can be tailored to the customer's specific needs. The result is a lightweight yet high performance battery, ideal for motive power applications.
Working closely with material handling OEMs and end users, GNB has assessed the value of Lithium-ion and the benefits it can provide over its Lead-acid equivalents. The main advantage was found to be increased productivity. As Lithium-ion can be fast charged (typically taking only one hour to fully charge) during regular existing breaks in the working day, for example lunch times, unproductive periods that result from lead tray exchange are avoided. GNB's Material Handling Lithium-ion solution will be on display at IMHX 2013 on Stand 19L120.
