Sennebogen presents new 30t battery powered material handler at bauma 2022Published 11/10, 2022 at 11:57
Sustainability in the circular economy is not only a means of returning valuable resources to the cycle and using them again, but also involves using durable and economical machines for the recycling itself.
Against the background of the joint goal of project partners Sennebogen and Cronimet to significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the recycling process, Sennebogen has developed the battery powered 30t electric material handler ‘825 Electro Battery’, which allows completely emission free working.
The Bavarian manufacturer of material handlers, Sennebogen, and the metal recycling and trading company Cronimet, headquartered in Karlsruhe, have had a strong partnership since 2014. When it came to putting the vision of a climate neutral recycling process into practice, the two companies quickly decided to work together. As an innovative Sennebogen project with the participation of Cronimet as a partner from the field of scrap recycling, a mobile 30t electric material handler with battery technology was developed to ensure maximised CO2 savings. Both in battery operation and with a cabled power supply, the modern battery powered material handler works without restrictions in terms of space and time – essential for working in the recycling industry.
Practical recycling material handler with battery technology
Considering itself to be the market leader in the field of electric machines, Sennebogen is known for offering solutions that are individually tailored to the needs of the customer. It states that it has now developed a battery powered electric material handler that works completely climate neutrally and is perfectly tailored to the requirements of demanding metal recycling. Cronimet not only contributed significant practical expertise during product development, which was implemented, for example, in the form of intelligent add ons' relating to battery technology, but also actively contributed during the machine's prototype stage.
Like the battery supported variant of the ‘817 Electro Battery’, which has already been launched on the market, the 825 Electro Battery impresses with its intelligent dual power management, which allows autonomous working in battery operation as well as when connected to the mains. Depending on the power requirement, the 378kW lithium ion battery pack installed in the rear enables working times of up to 8h without recharging. If the machine is connected to the power supply via the charging point on the undercarriage, stationary work can be carried out.
Sennebogen believes that a great highlight is that when charging, excess power being fed in simultaneously recharges the batteries. The machine can also be connected to conventional power sockets thanks to the on board charger and the 63A CEE plug system used. These developments mean that additional investments in charging stations are no longer necessary. It has also been designed to offer more comfort for employees, as it is quieter, has lower vibrations and is completely emission free. The lower service costs, and thus the reduced operating costs associated with the electric machine, are said to be another plus point of the battery powered material handler.
Already in operation
Cronimet currently uses the machine for feeding its scrap press, preparing material for the press and for sorting incoming goods. The battery powered material handler runs on 100% certified green electricity and saves up to 125t of CO2 emissions per year in a two shift operation when compared with the previous solution and with the same freedom of movement. “With this innovation project, we are taking a decisive step towards climate neutrality,” says Marijo Zeljko, managing director of Cronimet Ferroleg. GmbH.
To be seen at bauma 2022
The Sennebogen 825 Electro Battery will be presented to the public at bauma 2022 from 24 to 31 October at the Sennebogen stand at the FM.712 Outdoor area, Messe München.
