Meritor, Inc. announced it is launching a full line of material handling axles for forklifts from 5-ton to more than 36-ton capacity and is showcasing an electrified axle within this portfolio under the Meritor Blue Horizon advanced technology brand at bauma 2019 April 8-14 in Munich, Germany.
The new planetary axles are designed and engineered based on the proven architecture and performance of Meritor's current MOR series of axles. The addition of an electrified carrier is an emissions-free, fully battery-electric propulsion option that further enhances the Meritor Blue Horizon product portfolio, centered on solutions offering connectivity, efficiency and electrification.
"Showcasing the electrified axle is an example of the alignment between the off-highway planetary product line and the global Meritor Blue Horizon brand of advanced technology solutions and further demonstrates the 'plug-and-play' commonality of parts throughout Meritor's off-highway portfolio," says Joe Plomin, Senior Vice President and President, Aftermarket, Industrial and Trailer for Meritor. "Off-highway customers benefit from the economies of scale and serviceability offered by our interchangeable approach to planetary wheel-ends and brake modules for traditional and emerging product solutions such as electrification."
