Benefits of Investing in Advanced Motive Power Solutions

Thursday, 11 March 2021 ( #1016 )
Over the last year, disruptions in the supply chain have highlighted the importance of creativity, adaptability, and productivity in the material handling industry. According to research experts, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a new normal for the material handling industry, leading to a pursuit of updated processes, supplier partnerships, and technology advancements. Companies in the supply chain have also adapted to the new normal through investments in advanced motive power solutions, such as lithium-ion and Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) battery technology. Benefits of Investing in Advanced Motive Power Solutions At HAWKER®, we've seen firsthand the benefits of investing in advanced motive power solutions apart from the standard flooded lead-acid battery. With our HAWKER FLEX® Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) battery and the HAWKER FLEX® Li3 battery, essential businesses across North America experienced flexible, scalable and reliable power for their operations during the last year of crisis. If you're still on the fence about investing in advanced motive power solutions, our team of experts has outlined the benefits that lithium-ion and TPPL batteries can bring to your business. Increased Flexibility Over the last few years, lithium-ion has become a buzzword in the material handling industry. With virtually no maintenance, quick charging times, and long-lasting power, it's easy to see why there is hype regarding lithium-ion batteries. However, the TPPL battery offers a very similar user experience and benefits, as well. Both of these technologies provide exceptional flexibility for operations. With fast-paced charging, TPPL and Li-ion batteries can be used within the hour of their charging session. Additionally, these batteries don't require changing, which frees up your labor force and room in your facility for pursuing more revenue-generating opportunities. Enhanced Scalability
Both the Lithium-ion and TPPL battery can position your material handling company for successful operational growth. Combining advanced technology with robust applications allows for the ability to reduce costs by eliminating watering, corrosion, battery changing, and maintenance. Additionally, lithium-ion batteries employ a modular design concept, which allows the units to adapt to various needs. With these high-quality materials and batteries on your side, your business is more capable of handling an influx of demand or continued growth over a period of time. Improved Efficiency Advanced technology often accompanies advanced batteries, such as the TPPL and Li-ion. Technology such as modernized data communication allows operational managers to examine the material handling fleet's efficiency in real-time. Not only does this data communication enable managers to control their fleets better, but it also provides critical insights into battery performance trends, potential problem spots, and overall workflow. With these insights, material handling companies can optimize their operations, resulting in improved efficiency. The ability for these motive power solutions to increase flexibility, enhance scalability, and improve efficiency has been seen in our HAWKER® partners throughout North America. Overall, when material handling companies invest in advanced motive power solutions, such as the TPPL and Li-ion battery, they position themselves as confident leaders in the industry. With more and more alignment between high-quality motive power solutions and industry development, the time to invest in your supply chains is now.
