The stations are designed specifically for storing lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries are becoming increasingly popular for their ability to deliver power from a compact size. Although they are used in a vast range of equipment, from handheld devices to cars, they are not as harmless as they appear, requiring special handling and care. DENIOS is introducing Lithium-Ion Stations.
Designed specifically for storing lithium-ion batteries, they are ideal for storing new, questionable, damaged, defective, or End-of-Life lithium-ion batteries typically found in small handheld devices. Available in two standard sizes, they allow the storage storing and transportation of batteries from 1 KG to 10KG up to 100W, which are typically used in power tools, e-bikes, medical devices, laptops, tablets, mobile devices, forklifts, cars and more. With two hours of fire resistance, and integrated forklift pockets for easy relocation, these purpose-built containers protect against fire hazards due to thermal runaway, deep discharge, mechanical deformation or chemical reaction.
Each unit includes thermo-dissipative media (class D fire), and visual identification on all sides to alert emergency personnel of contents and hazards. These Li-Ion Battery Stations protect employees, facilities and the environment. They follow guidelines within NFPA 704, IFC 608, FM 5-55 and applicable EPA regulations. DENIOS Lithium-Ion Battery Stations are ideal for manufacturers incorporating Li-ion batteries into their products, as well as facilities using them.
Every DENIOS Lithium-Ion Battery Station features solidly welded construction for a long service life, with integrated vents for passive ventilation. Lockable, hinged lid and doors keep the contents safe from unauthorized personnel. Shelving and fire extinguishers are optional.
A comprehensive guideline for the storage of Lithium-Ion Batteries is available here.
The event was held in conjunction with the company’s 40th anniversary.
After a nearly two-year wait, Exmark hosted a ribbon cutting and open house at its new corporate headquarters in the Beatrice Industrial Park. The facility was finished in late 2019; however, the public celebration took place recently in conjunction with Exmark’s 40th Anniversary.
Exmark Vice President, Daryn Walters, said the new facility is where Exmark will develop the innovations that will drive the green industry forward today, tomorrow, and in the future.
“Exmark was incorporated 40 years ago in May, so it seems fitting that we’re unveiling our new facility today,” Walters said. “To see how this company has grown, from just a handful of innovators with a dream in 1982, to the incredible organization we have today, it’s a beautiful thing. A true American success story and I’m grateful for everyone who has had a hand in Exmark’s success.”
The event hosted a number of notable local and state leaders, including Nebraska Governor, Pete Ricketts; Nebraska District 30 State Senator, Myron Dorn; and Beatrice Mayor, Stan Wirth. The Toro Company President and CEO, Rick Olson also spoke at the event, as did Matt Hills, vice president of construction for the Ryan Companies, the building contractor for the new facility.
Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, guests were invited to participate in guided tours of Exmark’s new facility.
The TL723 and TL 923, in addition to the TL619 launched in 2021, round out the R-Series telehandler lineup.
A go-to favorite for agriculture, construction, landscaping, snow removal and many other applications, the all new TL723 and TL923 telehandlers from Bobcat give operators the flexibility to accomplish a variety of tasks with precision and performance. These newest models, in addition to the TL619 launched in 2021, round out the R-Series telehandler lineup.
Featuring redesigned comfort cabs, turbo-charged Tier 4 engines and easy-to-access service points, the machines combine power and nimbleness to create a lifting, stacking, backfilling and reaching machine matched for the toughest jobs.
The TL923 hydraulic system is designed for faster boom speeds and heavier lifting, providing operators with smoother handling and control when loaded, and faster boom cycle times when empty. The patented hydraulic lift system provides advanced high-flow technology to optimize lift capabilities while providing high-speed movement.
Both the TL723 at 100 HP and the TL923 at 135 HP come equipped with a state-of-the-art advanced Bobcat Tier 4, turbo-charged engine, delivering powerful, high-torque performance and efficiency. Operators will also appreciate the new engine’s reliable cold weather starting and a variety of features that make maintenance and service more convenient. The units are also equipped with automatic ride control, which reduces materials pillage and enables operators to travel at faster speeds for increased productivity.
Five operation modes give operators the versatility needed for a wide variety of applications:
The TL723 and TL923 were designed to incorporate sleek and efficient Bobcat R-Series styling and enhanced visibility. The low-profile boom sits below operator eye level to provide an open view of the surroundings. The redesigned engine basket sits lower for increased line of sight. Front, top and rear window wipers help keep windows free of debris and precipitation. Multiple mirrors on the operator’s left and right provide added visibility when working in confined areas. An optional rear mirror kit, rear view camera kit and boom work light kit also are available. The TL723 and TL923 both have a unique wrap-around rear-view window that gives operators a clear view of the side and rear of the machine.
The redesigned cab builds upon the Bobcat tradition of operator-centered design with high visibility, excellent ergonomics, a comfortable suspension seat, efficient HVAC system and an easy-to-read instrumentation panel that Bobcat equipment operators will find familiar across R-Series machines. Bobcat telehandler cabs are designed and tested to Roll-Over Protection Structure (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS) level II standards.
A single, intuitive multi-control joystick dictates the travel direction, lift and tilt functions, boom extension, and auxiliary hydraulics. It also allows operators to control several machine functions at the same time and from one control point, enabling more precise control and higher productivity without having to remove their hand from the joystick.
Fingertip control access makes operation smooth and comfortable. On the front side of the joystick, the directional switch for forward, neutral and reverse can be operated with the index finger. The 2-speed travel switch, lift-arm float, boom extension, machine function settings and auxiliary hydraulics are located on the rear of the joystick.
The TL923 comes specially equipped with a seat-mounted joystick with adjustable armrest, allowing operators to adjust to their preferred position. It also includes a high-comfort, heated air-suspension seat, which also makes a perfect complement to the cab’s climate control. The TL723 has a standard air-suspension seat which adjusts to the operator’s weight.
Bobcat R-Series telehandlers are built with a robust box-welded frame for enhanced rigidity - plus a low-center of gravity for optimal stability. The shielded bottom plate protects vital components, and the engine, cooling system and critical components are well-protected within the center of the chassis, ensuring minimal wear and tear due to jobsite obstacles or harsh terrain.
Engine compartment accessibility puts routine maintenance checks, filters and other engine components in easy reach, as well as the oil filter and other service points.
Thanks to the Power Quick-Tach mounting system on the TL723 and TL923, operators can push a button to retract pins and release to quickly secure an attachment, allowing for non-hydraulic attachment changes without ever leaving the cab. From pallet forks and buckets to grapples and snow pushers, operators can conquer a variety of tasks without the need for specialty attachments.
