Wiferion ProMatDX 2021 Innovation Profiled in Manufacturing Outlook Magazine

Wiferion, the leading solution provider for mobile, wireless power supply of electric industrial vehicles, was recently profiled in the March issue of Manufacturing Outlook Magazine. The article authored by manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler, discussed new innovations anticipated at the ProMatDX tradeshow from April 12-16, 2021. Read the full article here

Cutler reported Wiferion’s in-process charging eliminates plug-in charging making Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) truly autonomous, eliminates the waste of AGV downtime – the fleet is always working AND charging, ensures ergonomics, and danger to workers significantly reduced, and is cost-efficient because full vehicle deployment means a reduced fleet count ensuring a rapid ROI. 

Wiferion educational session at ProMatDX will take place on Tuesday, April 15 at 9:00-9:30 am CDT.    

For OEMs of AGVs and industrial trucks implementing inductive charging technology  solves the wear and tear issues caused by conventional charging methods as well as making vehicles fully autonomous. For end-users of AGVs and industrial trucks,  inductive charging in combination with lithium batteries can improve fleet availability by more than 30%. 

Wiferion is a contender for the ProMatDX Innovation Award. The etaLINK 3000 wireless charging system allows AGVs, AMRs, and industrial trucks to be charged without any contact quickly and safely. The etaLINK 3000 inductive fast-charging system is the world’s first production-ready, contactless battery charging system with an efficiency of 93% in its class.
