This year, ATLAS GmbH will again be present at IFAT Munich – the world’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies. Every two years, IFAT provides a platform for the industry to present solutions in water, sewage, waste and raw materials management as well as strategies for utilizing resources in intelligent cycles and preserving them in the long term. The next IFAT will take place from May 13 – 17, 2024 at the Munich exhibition site. In the newly introduced cross-industry sessions, solutions from various sectors and industries will be the focus of attention with the objective to address and develop shared solution approaches for a circular economy across various industries. Based on its comprehensive network, IFAT Munich brings together key-players from communities and industrial sectors who are interested in recycling management and the closing of loops in the economic circles.

ATLAS again cooperates closely with VAK, the German association of manufacturers of vehicle bodies, suppliers and manufacturers of accessories for equipment and municipal vehicles. The VAK member companies develop and produce innovative, energy-efficient and resource-saving equipment and municipal vehicles. In this way, they create values for customers, stakeholders, employees, and society as a whole.

At the booth hosted by VAK, ATLAS will present their 100 % battery-powered industrial material handling machine 200MH accu:

This machine has an operating weight (including 500-liter grab) of 21 tons and the boom has a reach of up to 11.6 m. The large electric motor generates an output of 140 kW and runs on a climate-controlled lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 115 kWh, which provides sufficient energy for four hours of operation. An hour at the 75kW-charging station will then recharge the battery system to 96 %.

At IFAT, machines are not simply stationary exhibits but demonstrated in action, showing prospective customers exactly of what they are capable.

In the outdoor exhibition area FM.713/2, ATLAS are going to show visitors in interesting live demonstrations just how efficiently ATLAS material handlers operate and will present two different versions of the 200MH:

One machine features a dipper-tipping cylinder and sorting grab; the other has a multi-jab grab with a capacity of 350 liters. The working length of the booms is 6,000 mm and of the jibs 4,000 mm. Other boom combinations are available as options.

The undercarriage of the 200MH accu is equipped with sturdy 4-point outriggers for support as well as heavy-duty axles fitted with solid rubber industrial tires. The upper carriage has a swing radius of 2,240 mm.

The special feature of this material handler is the powerful battery pack in the rear for maximum mobility and uninterrupted operation in recycling applications at zero emissions. The battery pack serves as the sole energy source, thus allowing the machine to drive and work entirely self-sufficient.

Furthermore, the battery has a particularly long service life: 200MH accu features a certified high-voltage battery system with a minimum of 4,000 full load cycles and the climate control of the battery cells takes care of a constant cell temperature. In addition, the integrated power electronics ensure an especially gentle starting of the motor to protect the supply system.

At an assumed annual operating time of 2,000 hours and an energy generation from renewable energy sources, the excavator saves 30 tons of CO2 on average per year. No maintenance work is required; at the same time, the machine operates completely without fossil fuels as well as vibration and noise reduced, thus noticeably relieving the strain on human health and the environment.
