At IMHX 2019 Hoppecke Industrial Batteries is underlining its commitment to meeting total energy needs with a product offering that reinforces its expertise across all battery technologies along with initiatives to drive productivity and nationwide service support.

trak | uplift battery launch

On stand 6E200 Hoppecke will reinforce its credentials in lead acid technology by unveiling the new trak | uplift battery. Featuring new active carbon, which allows precisely matched active materials to deliver higher current discharge characteristics along with an improved fast charging capability, the trak | uplift  improves service life. Available as a cost-optimised basic solution, it is purpose-designed so that additional components, such as trak | air electrolyte circulation, can be retrofitted at any time.

Energy-efficient charger

Hoppecke will also discuss the advantages of its new high efficiency trak | charger HF Premium, which features touch screen controls and is suitable for use with lead-acid, gel and lithium-ion batteries.

IMHX visitors will also find out how to reap the benefits when upgrading their materials handling equipment from traditional lead acid batteries to Hoppecke's innovative lithium-ion technology. Hoppecke's new subsidiary, Intilion, will convey the advantages of the latest Gen3 system, which can be integrated with a wide range of trucks. Also, for smaller manufacturers and businesses keen to update their fleet to lithium-ion technology, the system is available as a ‘drop-in' version, negating any requirement for truck modifications. The latest system offers even greater benefits in terms of total cost of ownership when compared to multiple lead acid batteries.

Hoppecke's managing director, Jon Bailey, says: "In the logistics/warehousing sector our focus is on offering a wide range of products along with advice on overall costs of ownership and environmental impact so that customers can achieve the best solution for their operation. It's important that businesses are aware of the options and how they can capitalise on technological innovations to ensure their materials handling fleet operates at peak performance to achieve productivity targets.

"IMHX 2019 is the ideal platform for us to showcase our extensive product portfolio plus special initiatives to help lower costs, such as our rental programme, and how our investment in technical support has seen us double our UK service business turnover in just three years."

Buy power not product

Hoppecke will also capitalise on the platform that IMHX affords to promote its battery and charger rental programme. By hiring in lead acid and lithium-ion batteries as and when required businesses can flex their truck fleet to meet varying demands. To drive down costs rental agreements are tailored to meet specific needs and include topping up and servicing. Since Hoppecke carries out assembly and maintains large stocks of key products at its UK headquarters, orders are typically fulfilled in less than five working days.

360oLifecycle Services

With countrywide coverage and engineers available around the clock, plus an enviable 95% first time fix rate, Hoppecke commits to customised solutions backed by reliable technical support. Its experienced team of engineers works closely with customers to identify and overcome day-to-day challenges whilst battery disposal and recycling services are designed to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint.
