Electric industrial carts for ECO-FRIENDLY and CUSTOMIZED material handling

As a consolidated international market supplier to global mnufacturers, Morello designs and produces heavy-duty electric trucks to optimize and decarbonize material handling processes inside modern plants and industrial areas. Morello specializes in the manufacture of hybrid and battery-operated heavy-duty trucks to transport large and non-standard loads according to individual projects with specific operational requirements.

BATTERY-OPERATED platform trucks

Onsite material handling within industrial areas created pollution problems that, in some cases, led to the prohibition of using transporter trucks with diesel engines. For this reason, these have been replaced with industrial carts that use electric or hybrid engines and cutting-edge converters powered by one or more batteries mounted on electric lorries.

Key advantages of using fully electric industrial carts for material handling:

  • Eco-friendly solution which eliminates pollution (both for indoor and outdoor use)
  • Energy effectiveness providing significant annual savings
  • Lower level of maintenance
  • Lower level of noise pollution
  • Increased productivity with increased useful life periods (simple and cheap replacement of electric engine)
  • Automation opportunities

The types of batteries used in Morello’s electric industrial carts vary from classic lead-acid batteries to the latest generation of lithium batteries.

Lithium batteries are a key factor in the popularity of battery-operated trucks. Among the advantages of using this type of battery, is the faster charging speed. This allows electric industrial carts to be suitable for the most intense working cycles with very short recharging stops. Electric transporter trucks can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if there are adequate recharging periods, replacement conditions and a correct study of the battery size.

HYBRID platform trucks

Hybrid transporter trucks for material handling are an extremely flexible solution that blends pollution-free batteries with the typical operating life of a diesel vehicle. Morello’s hybrid platform trucks can operate using the battery or the diesel engine giving the opportunity to switch from emission-free battery to diesel engine power supply. Such flexibility is very useful for all those material handling processes that involve both indoor and outdoor operations needing an extensive operating life and which cannot be managed using a battery alone.

Morello’s battery-operated platform trucks are equipped with electric traction motors with alternating current, managed by a PLC and a converter in order to blend low maintenance and high reliability. High maintenance costs, environmental issues, high consumption and the low reliability of hydraulic motors can be eliminated when using our heavy-duty electric trucks.
