Jungheinrich Group provides free 5-year warranty on its lithium-ion batteries

Jungheinrich Group provides free 5-year warranty on its lithium-ion batteries
Effective immediately, the Jungheinrich Group is providing a free 5-year warranty on all of its self-manufactured lithium-ion batteries. If the capacity of a battery falls below 65 per cent of its nominal capacity within the warranty lifetime, Jungheinrich will repair or exchange it free of charge, using its local after sales team.

In 2011, Jungheinrich became the first manufacturer to launch a series-produced truck equipped with lithium-ion technology. At present, Jungheinrich is the only intralogistics company to develop and manufacture not only vehicles, but also the corresponding charging systems and batteries. Jungheinrich has a manufacturing depth for its energy storage systems, which is unique in the market. Currently, Jungheinrich already offers lithium-ion batteries as a feature on more than 90 per cent of its trucks. In addition, the latest vehicles using conventional lead-acid batteries can easily be converted to lithium-ion technology.

Dr Oliver Lücke, the Jungheinrich Board of Management member in charge of Engineering, comments: “Thanks to our many years of experience in the area of energy storage systems, we are now able to offer our customers a free warranty on our Jungheinrich lithium-ion batteries lasting either for five years or 10,000 hours of operation. Anyone who is interested in energy-efficient, leading-edge warehouse solutions can’t afford to ignore Jungheinrich.

“By granting this additional warranty we are substantially reducing the investment risks for our clients, while maximising their benefits. Our lithium-ion batteries are intelligent and can communicate with both the vehicle and the charging equipment. That means they protect themselves autonomously from incorrect handling, while at the same time adjusting ideally to the application at hand. That is why Jungheinrich batteries are especially efficient, maintenance-free and long-lasting. At Jungheinrich we are convinced that lithium-ion technology will soon become the standard energy storage system in intralogistics.”

Jan Lorenz, Managing Director, Jungheinrich UK, adds: “Due to an industry-wide focus on energy efficiency, Lithium-ion technology is taking up a position as a major development in the UK market. Our maintenance-free, long life lithium-ion batteries, are not only cost-effective and more eco-friendly, but save customers time. The shorter charging times presented by the batteries allow operatives the opportunity to charge during breaks.This, in turn, creates a more flexible working environment, which is a key consideration for many of our customers.”

The range of self-produced lithium-ion batteries consists of 24 V, 48 V and 80 V versions – all of which are covered by the Jungheinrich warranty. The Jungheinrich lithium-ion components are perfectly attuned to each other; the battery, vehicle and charging equipment all communicate. Since neither gasses nor acid are emitted by lithium-ion batteries, charging stations equipped with expensive exhaust systems are no longer needed.

The fast and short interim charging times mean fleets can be in operation almost continuously, 24/7. And the time-consuming need to change batteries is superfluous with lithium-ion batteries. It is no longer necessary to have any reserve batteries or battery changing equipment. Based on the major advantages of lithium-ion technology in practice, Jungheinrich is planning to further expand its own in-house battery production.
