Alternative power solutions for fork trucks and other material handling equipment were all the rage at ProMat, with lithium batteries taking center stage. Battery manufacturer Crown Battery took an educational approach to the subject, offering a 10-minute talk designed to help attendees develop the right questions to ask when considering switching to lithium-powered solutions.
"Let's Talk Lithium" was one in a series of talks the company offered during the show as a way to help industry professionals navigate the trends shaping the material handling landscape. Total cost is at the heart of the issue, according to Crown National Account Manager Andrew Thomas, who gave the talk. He took attendees through various scenarios involving battery purchase cost, energy cost, and fork-truck usage, emphasizing the need for users to ask questions about how both traditional and alternative solutions can meet their needs.
