Autonomous driving forklift

The “autonomous driving forklift” supports autonomous driving and remote control and is equipped with a vehicle control system that recognizes surrounding environments and obstacles with 2D lasers in order to cope with unexpected situations.

Remarkable productivity growth could not be expected under the simple repetitive unloading work done traditionally at logistics sites with manned forklifts, due to the continuous stress caused by safety concerns, limited productivity improvements due to the accumulation of worker fatigue and the limit on continuous working hours. The autonomous driving forklift of Hyundai Construction Equipment can realize hitherto unimaginable cost-effectiveness and productivity. The autonomous forklift can accelerate logistics circulation with automation and make efficient use of inventory space. In addition, the risk of workplace accidents can be reduced dramatically by performing work on a planned route.

Hyundai Construction Equipment and Amazon Web Services

Hyundai Construction Equipment, a construction equipment maker subsidiary of Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., has make its agreement with Amazon Web Services to develop a fault diagnosis module that aims to combine artificial intelligence and modern technology to gather and analyze real-time data to accurately detect abnormalities with machine learning technology.

“We will increase customer satisfaction by introducing AI technology developed with AWS to construction equipment to minimize diagnosis and repair time and provide cutting-edge services that maximize equipment availability,” said HCE’s R&D department head Yoon Young-cheol. The company would commercialize voice recognition equipment control functions through cooperation with AWS and enhance safety functions using AIoT modules.

Hyundai Construction Equipment (HCE) said the AIoT technology can determine the type of failure with accumulated data and recommend parts necessary for repair. Engineers can remotely determine the situation and take action on the site. Construction equipment withstands heavy working loads for a long time, and it is difficult to detect defects only with sensors and pre-symptoms, so unexpected failures may occur. HCE has worked with Amazon Web Services to develop AI-based smart construction equipment.

Internal Combustion Forklifts

Building rugged, reliable trucks, has allowed Hyundai Construction equipment to become a leading provider of forklift trucks in Europe. Through adding high specification features, and integration of the newest technology, every units aim is to increase productivity of your work station by whilst lowering equipment lifetime costs.

9V Diesel Forklift Trucks “Packed with Smartness”

Hyundai Material Handling kicks off the introduction of its new Stage V series with a full range of 9V models.  The new portfolio represents a smart generation of diesel forklifts from 2.5 to 5 ton lifting capacity and is combining a robust and slick exterior design together with performance enhancing features. Furthermore, a heavy line range of diesel machines will be launched in the 2nd half 2021.

Upgrades in 3 and 4 wheel Electric Forklift

Hyundai Material Handling has thoroughly re-engineered the very successful U series of its electrically driven 3- and 4-wheel forklifts. The further development focuses on comfort, performance, and reduced energy consumption.

The 3-wheel forklifts 15BT-9U / 18BT-9U and 20BT-9U in the load capacity range from 1,500 to 2,000 kg are ready for the world market with their high-performance components. New features include the Zapi controllers of the ACE series, the Schabmüller drive motors, and the low-noise ZF drive train. The new motors are also more powerful (drive motors 2 x 5.4 kW, lifting motor 14.9kW). The Zapi ACE controllers, with IP65 protection, are taking care of the improved and more gentle control of the motors.

The electrical steering – using energy only when the steering wheel is operated, reduces energy consumption by up to 33%. The steering feedback control is proportional to the travel speed which ensures safe and comfortable travelling up to 16 km/h. Another excellent new feature is the auto parking function which enables the electromagnetic brakes as soon as the accelerator pedal is being released. This safety feature prevents the truck from rolling backwards on gradients and ramps when idle.

Hyundai Construction Equipment’s 25th year at Europe

Tessenderlo, Belgium, 7th of February 2020 – HCEE (Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe) celebrates 25 years in Europe. After making its European debut in Geel (province of Antwerp, Belgium) in 1995 the company is now located in a new state-of-the-art European headquarters in Tessenderlo (province of Limburg, Belgium).

 Becoming an independent business unit in 2017, defining the global vision 2023, and receiving the recent Technical Innovation Award for the new wheel loader, are clear indications that things keep on moving within Hyundai Construction Equipment.

 However, HCEE’s growth has been gradual and the company comes from humble beginnings.

Introducing Hyundai Lithium-Ion Battery Forklift

‘Energy’ is a field in which world-leading companies are heavily interested. The transition to eco-friendly energy from fossil energy sources (coal, oil, and gas), which generate toxic substances including carbon monoxide has been implemented gradually across all industries. Especially, batteries draw attention as a product to dramatically increase energy efficiency. Among these, the lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery has been positioned as a new power source for various machinery and means of transportation.

Climate change is a hot global issue. The European Union (EU) announced its intention to be Carbon Neutral by 2050 last December and encouraged the participation of many countries to preserve the environment. Carbon neutrality refers to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions (carbon) by absorbing greenhouse gases emitted by individuals, corporations, and organizations. Japan announced that it would participate in efforts to achieve carbon neutral last October. Joe Biden, as the U.S. president-elect pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Moon Jae-in, the president of Korea, also declared “carbon neutrality by 2050” in his administrative policy speech at the National Assembly on October 28th, 2020.

Leading the age of Hydrogen Energy

Energy of the future is what they call Hydrogen energy. t sounds a little unfamiliar but each industry is making a serious move, poised to utilize hydrogen as a main source of energy in the future. 

Why hydrogen energy?

Hydrogen, atomic number 1 on the periodic table of elements, is everywhere. Hydrogen accounts for about 75% of all masses in the universe. It is the third most common element after oxygen and silicon on the surface of the Earth. Hydrogen is highly flammable, and runs a risk of explosion when mixed with the air. But technologies that reduce such risks have recently been developed, making its use quite safe.

In February 2020, HCE, Hyundai MOBIS, and Hyundai Motor Company held an MOU signing ceremony, committing themselves to the joint development of construction equipment applying hydrogen fuel cells. Seven months later in September, HCE succeeded in developing a hydrogen fuel cell-powered forklift prototype.
