Material Handling

Our value proposition

Efficicient and reliable

Dana TM4 motors and inverters are scalable solutions optimized for:

  • Forklift trucks
  • Automated Guided Vehicles
  • Reach Stackers
  • Tow tractors

At your side for the whole journey

Our teams work closely with OEMs to understand if their application is best suited to a fully electric or hybrid solution, and support them from prototype and concept stage right through to high-volume production.

 

Fork Lift

With an electric motor on board, electric fork lifts generate zero emissions and zero noise pollution compared to diesel powered vehicles, meaning they are well-suited for warehouse and indoor operation.

Our electric motors are powerful and efficient resulting in extended battery life and run-time.

Automated Guided Vehicles

AGVs, or mobile robots, that follow markers to move materials around a manufacturing or industrial facility, are a rapidly expanding market.

Designed for internal environments and to achieve optimum efficiencies, electric traction solutions are the preferred choice. Dana TM4 motors and inverter not only deliver economic benefits, but are also compact and modular making them easy to install and maintain.

We work with OEMs to find the best solution from our portfolio based on variants such as load, torque requirements, speed and size.
