Discussion:
the End of Materials Handling as it is known today

The Materials Handling market is about to change. With only around six or seven of the world's manufactures serving. With in the next 10 years most warehouse will be completely different Companies like KION of China DAMATIC or TOYOTA of Japan VANDERLANDE will dominate the warehouse business with hole turnkey products. Pallet trucks, reach trucks VNA truck will all be replaced with automated equipment.

Counter balance forklift sales will also decline and be replaced with complete handling systems that will be able to move products around a facility with out the need of an operator. Out side the facility there will also be big changes Both Diesel and electric forklifts will be replaced with 100% zero emission products that will have much longer ranges then electric forklifts and will be able to handle loads up to 72,000kg while being 100% zero emission. Companies Like Hyster who have backed Hydrogen to the tune of up to $260 million investment will see this disappear as hydrogen forklifts wont be able to compete with the new technologies that will offer lower cost's ,no need for high pressure systems ,be less explosive and more cost effective than hydrogen.

I guess that means there is no future for hydrogen filled, non polluting zeppelins?

Thanks for the interst, Hyster might not be on you tube but they are curtanly trying to convince anyone will will listen to their idea of a hydrogen fuel cell reach Stacker that now looks doomed because who will pay for something that is 130% higher cost when there are much better and safer option available.

With many Companies now looking to produce Hydrogen IC engines, Cummins, Toyota JCB all have either built or plan to build an Hydrogen IC engine. whare will this leave the hyster fuel cell program. Hyster via their company Nuvera have invested heavly in the fuel cell business to the tune of a couple of hundred million dollars. That now looks like this might have to be writen off if you add write off for the over payment of the maximal this might lead to over $250 million write down on Hyster Yale.


Now i know all you suporters of Hyster are going to say i'm just trolling Hyster and yes i can understand your point because you all work for either Hyster or a Hyster dealer so this is not good news for you. But just look at the facts a IC engine running on Hydrogen is a round 0ne third of the cost of a Hydrogen fuel cell so some companies might choose this way.

again i don't think even an IC hydrogen engine will be a very good idea because of a couple of reasons. One being they still need hydrogen tanks at 350Bar for storing the fuel. Two they have to greatly lower the compersion ratio meaning a 4.7L 120Kw engine running on hydrogen would only be 80Kw, Three Hydrogen is very explosive and even a small leak can cuase major issues, as Hydrogen leaks are very hard to detect and hydrogen burns without a flame
