From the idea to the steel plant

THE FUTURE OF MAN AND HIS ENVIRONMENT
ARE LINKED TOGETHER

Making working life on-site sustainable is a prior goal that guides all our projects.

In this scenario, Ehron definitely represents the sustainable future came true. We spent several years of research and development to design this powertrain system which can finally be installed on all types of industrial vehicles.
After initial tests and checks conducted in-house,
we finally reached an advanced stage of testing at the working sites (1,500 hours over six months in steel plants).

FROM TESTING TO PRODUCTION

Starting from 2022 we will be ready to mass produce the Ehron (POWERTRAIN) kit.
We will be able to meet the needs of the many customers who, in recent years, have been asking us for tailor-made solutions to obtain a zero-emission powertrain while maintaining competitive costs compared to traditional Diesel engines.

 

IT ALL STARTED WITH A LOADER

In 2018, the Ehron kit was mounted on an industrial loader for scrap handling within a steel plant scrap yard in order to test both its efficiency and reliability.
This industrial loader, despite being a very complex vehicle as it works on six independent axes, has provided
encouraging results in terms of effectiveness, reliability and cost management.

SUPERNATURAL STRENGTH, RATIONAL HEAD

WHY THEY LIKE IT SO MUCH

  • HIGH AUTONOMY STANDARDS

    (10 hours of continuous operation)
  • MAXIMUM DURATION OF THE BATTERIES

    (the batteries provide 3,500 charge cycles which multiplied by 10 hours of autonomy guarantee 35,000 hours of use)
  • PERFORMANCE EQUAL OR
    HIGHER THAN DIESEL ENGINE

  • RELIABILITY

  • REDUCED MAINTENANCE

  • OPERATIVE FLEXIBILITY

    (no power cables)

A VERSATILE POWERTRAIN

The tests conducted on the industrial loader have demonstrated that the system is also suitable for simpler vehicles used in steel plants, ports, and other civil work sites. EHRON can be adjusted to effectively replace the conventional powertrain system of a wide range of industrial vehicles. Its sizes, operation tasks, working areas may be customised upon the Customer’s specific request.
Some industrial vehicles which may be equipped with EHRON kit:

  • LOADERS

  • EXCAVATORS

  • WHEEL LOADERS

  • Industrial and road
    TRACTORS

  • LIFTS
    (front lifts, stackers, platforms)

  • BOATS

  • LOCOMOTIVES

  • BUSES

OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT

For some time we have been committed to a future where products, services and activities aim at the zero-emission goal, to reduce CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions around the world.
We are committed to the fight against global climate warming.

RESEARCH TO EVOLVE

We work alongside steel companies by offering them a full range of services.
We are a company of over 400 employees, founded about 70 years ago in Northern Italy and open to the international market.
Our Research & Development department is involved in many projects oriented towards the “Industry 4.0” philosophy
and we are working to identify innovative technologies and processes that can be implemented in the short-, medium-, and long-term.

Each one of our projects is aimed at optimizing the health and safety conditions of workers, reducing atmospheric emissions, promoting the recycling and recovery of ferrous
and non-ferrous materials, without losing sight of streamlining costs.

We never neglect to evaluate future business scenarios as early as possible, based on the expected technological development that involves our core activities.
To feed positive cultural crossover, we have always made use of collaborations and technical-scientific consultancy with
institutions, universities, research centres, and industries.
