Bonfiglioli’s Battery Mini-excavator Kit Successful in Global OEM Testing

Sept. 13, 2023
Test results from OEMs worldwide demonstrate a 20% improvement in energy efficiency.

Power transmission and control solutions provider Bonfiglioli announced the successful testing and validation of its advanced kit of products for battery-powered mini-excavators. The results of rigorous evaluations by multiple original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) across the globe reveal an improvement in energy efficiency, surpassing industry standards by at least 20%.

Key features of Bonfiglioli's advanced kit include:

  • Electric Swing Drive (700T Series) offers precision and power to the swing mechanism of the mini-excavator. By electrifying the rotation, energy efficiency is significantly enhanced, allowing for prolonged operation on a single charge.
  • Electric Track Drive (700C Series) optimizes the performance of the track system, ensuring a low level of energy consumption and increased maneuverability. It seamlessly integrates with the machine, providing reliable operation even in harsh working conditions.
  • Electric Motor for Pump Drive (BPM Series) is specifically designed to drive the arm, bucket and other challenging-to-electrify functions that are usually hydraulically driven. This minimizes redesign efforts while contributing to overall energy savings.
