Fronius to host Open House in May

Fronius UK will be opening the doors to its Technology Centre in Milton Keynes to unveil the latest innovative charging technology on offer for intralogistics, as it hosts its fifth Open House on 18th and 19th May 2022.

This is a real opportunity to explore the world of Fronius and to see up close the most recent advances in charging technology. Fronius has put together a wide variety of demonstrations across its range of products, solutions and applications and a programme of talks from specially selected guest speakers and industry partners. The event promises to be informative, hands-on and packed with fun, and whether you are looking to review your intralogistics processes, wanting to save on energy costs or simply find out what’s new, this is just the event for you.

When it comes to your warehouse and logistics operations, you are reliant on the availability and reliability of your MHE for the movement of goods. Essential to this is battery life, and this is largely defined by the charging process – a process that is often overlooked – but optimising it can save companies huge sums of money. With their unique and intelligent ‘Ri’ charging process, Fronius guarantee to save you on your energy costs across your forklift fleet – by up to 30%. With energy prices at an all-time high, if there was ever a time to review the efficiency of your charging operation, it’s now.

What’s new?

Higher power categories for heavy-duty applications – Fronius has recognised the increasing demand for electric forklift trucks for challenging heavy-duty applications. The battery charging specialist is expanding its Selectiva 4.0 product family to include powerful 96V and 120V models in order to help customers switch to sustainable, electric intralogistics systems for transporting high-tonnage goods.

New solutions for Lithium-ion batteries – the role of lithium-ion technology (Li-ion) in intralogistics is becoming increasingly important, and with good reason. Lithium-ion batteries are lightweight, have a long service life, are maintenance-free, extremely energy-efficient and have an impressive charging time of just a few minutes. All major forklift truck manufacturers now offer models with a lithium-ion battery. Fronius SelectION lithium-ion chargers offer a safe, efficient and flexible charging solution. Smart engineering by the highest quality standard ensures easy operations and reduced downtime. Thanks to its intelligent Fronius CAN protocol, a seamless and fast communication between the charger and lithium-ion battery is guaranteed.

Charge and Connect – Charge & Connect allows you to go beyond the limits of conventional charging. Increase the performance and efficiency of your intralogistics operation with this cloud-based software solution that provides real-time data and numerous analysis functions on your charging infrastructure. Combining technologically advanced chargers with a digital connectivity solution, helps you reduce energy costs, increase efficiency and minimise potential risks of downtimes.

So why not take advantage of this event to come and talk to Fronius and see some of the solutions it has on offer, whilst enjoying a schedule of entertainment, a hot lunch and refreshments throughout the day?

“The Open House is an ideal opportunity for people to visit our facility and gain an insight into the most advanced solutions available on the market.” Ross Adams, National Sales Director at Fronius UK comments, “We welcome visitors to bring their operating costs on the day and our team will be able to show them the potential savings available for their forklift fleet. We offer full solutions from single battery chargers to total system solutions including multiple charging modules and complete charging rooms, all complete with system monitoring.”

The days will also incorporate the company’s other two business units: Solar Energy and Perfect Welding. With the imminent energy price hikes, take the opportunity to look at the company’s industry leading solar products and services including its hybrid solar inverter that recently won first place for efficiency in the Energy Storage Inspection 2021 and its new powerful yet robust, project inverter for high yields, the Fronius Tauro. Fronius will also be demonstrating many of its manual, automated and robotic welding systems at the absolute forefront of welding technology.

Due to the success of its previous Open Houses, the company has made the decision to spread this year’s event across two days to allow everyone the time and space to observe demonstrations safely, provide time to speak to experts and try out products where possible. Fronius UK will welcome guests from 9:30am until 3:30pm on both days.
