Ways to help you save
Miba, a strategic service partner to the international automotive industry, uses Fronius battery charging systems. For a very good reason.
The company Miba which has its head office in the Upper Austrian town of Laakirchen, considers itself to be one of the leading strategic service partners to the international automotive industry. The products – sintered mouldings, friction bearings, friction linings, power electronics components and surface coatings – are installed in vehicles, trains, ships, aircraft and power stations all over the world. In Vorchdorf, not far from Wels, Miba Sinter Austria - a subsidiary of the Miba Sinter Group - manufactures sintered mouldings. These are very precise, high-strength components that are produced using special process technology.
Environmental protection is a high priority for Miba and is a vital aspect of its approach towards corporate responsibility. The company sees environmental management as an innovative way of increasing ecological and economic efficiency.
Up to 30% less power consumption
Anyone who wants to save energy not unreasonably attempts to do so on all its power consumers, including the battery chargers used by industrial trucks. Miba is no stranger to these, as it has 18 front loaders with load capacities of up to 2.5 tons and more than 20 electrically-powered pedestrian pallet trucks. In addition, the Vorchdorf site employs 158 electrically-powered scissor-lifts for ergonomic working. Alongside the on-board battery chargers, Acctiva 12-10 Fronius battery charging systems are also used for these lifting devices.
The company prefers Fronius battery charging systems because unlike the older 50 Hertz transformer technology or conventional inverter (high frequency) technology, these chargers allow us to save up to 30% on electricity costs. This is thanks to their very high degree of efficiency of up to 96%. At the same time, the special charging cycle increases the battery service life
Miba has now been using Fronius charging systems for almost 10 years, both new purchases and to replace old chargers.
