Best material handling performance

Airports, sea ports and warehouses are busy workplaces in the material handling market. Many heavy-duty tasks must be carried out in confined outdoor and indoor spaces. This is creating a need for robust machines that are safe, accurate and reliable. At Danfoss, we engineer the hydraulic solutions for the best material handling performance.

Narrow aisles and gangways are no hindrance for forklifts with the right space-saving design. The same goes for waste compactors, aerial lifts, telehandlers and utility trucks that need to manoeuvre safely and efficiently in a limited area. It’s the reason why compact steering and work function systems are a must.

Danfoss is a professional partner for the material handling industry. From our proportional valves, sensors and ergonomic joysticks to our intelligent PLUS+1® control systems. We specialize in designing integrated hydraulic packages to drive and manage an entire machine. Ease of installation and maintenance are built in to the design.

As with all Danfoss hydraulic systems, operator comfort is a priority. Especially when there’s a need to operate and coordinate several functions at the same time. Operators can count on a clear overview of performance and remote control options when operating a machine work function from outside the cabin.
