Bonfiglioli has announced the successful testing and validation of its highly advanced kit of products designed for battery-powered mini excavators. Following rigorous evaluations by multiple original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) across all continents, the results demonstrate an extraordinary improvement in energy efficiency, surpassing industry standards by at least 20 percent.
Recognizing the growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly construction equipment, Bonfiglioli has developed a cutting-edge solution tailored specifically for battery mini excavators. Carefully engineered and meticulously tested, it incorporates the latest advancements in power transmission and control technologies.
The Bonfiglioli kit comprises three key components that significantly enhance energy efficiency in battery mini excavators:
1. Electric Swing Drive (700T Series): The 700T series electric swing drive provides exceptional precision and power to the swing mechanism of the mini excavator. With the rotation being the most frequently used movement during the working day, electrifying it enhances energy efficiency, allowing for prolonged operation on a single charge.
2. Electric Track Drive (700C Series): The 700C series electric track drive (pictured above) optimizes the performance of the track system, keeping a low level of energy consumption and increasing maneuverability. Seamlessly integrated with the machine, it ensures reliable operation even in harsh working conditions.
3. Electric Motor for Pump Drive (BPM Series): The BPM series electric motor is designed to drive the arm and the bucket, as well as other challenging-to-electrify functions which are usually hydraulically driven. This minimizes the redesign effort, contributing to the overall energy savings.
The remarkable energy efficiency improvements reached through the kit offer numerous advantages to construction companies and operators, including extended operating time, reduced downtime for recharging, increased productivity, and significant cost savings over the lifespan of the mini excavator.
"The exceptional results achieved by our battery mini excavator kit underscore Bonfiglioli's commitment to innovation and sustainability," said Fausto Carboni, CEO of Bonfiglioli Group. "By leveraging our advanced power transmission and control solutions, construction professionals can now access a superior alternative that enhances energy efficiency without compromising performance, furthering our collective efforts towards a greener future."
Visitors at the prestigious IVT Expo held in Cologne, Germany had the chance to experience firsthand the transformative impact of the kit on battery mini excavators.
