Energy consumption is a significant cost factor for most material handling equipment throughout its lifetime, especially during the use phase. Therefore, energy efficiency has become one of the top priorities for our industry as well as our customers.
Being a major competitive element amongst material handling manufacturers, energy efficiency is now a key R&D objective. Material handling manufacturers minimise the environmental impact of their equipment throughout its full life cycle when designing new products and systems, striving for minimal use of energy.
>>> Energy reduction in materials handling equipment must remain a market-driven issue: competition is a better incentive than regulation
>>> Manufacturers must remain free to develop targeted innovative solutions rather than being limited by too prescriptive legislation
