E-mobility is an opportunity for Bull power.
E-mobility is an important business area for Banner and deliveries are already being made to numerous partners.
E-mobility has for quite some time been the dominant topic of discussion in the automotive branch. Consequently, as an established manufacturer of lead-based starter batteries, Banner is confronting the resultant challenges to a greater extent than ever before.
With its AGM and EFB batteries, Banner is making a significant contribution to sustainable emobility.
It is still impossible for any e-vehicle to operate without a 12V lead-acid battery on board for the supply of its electrical systems and therefore apart from future-oriented start-ups, Banner is also supplying leading automotive manufacturers such as the BMW Group with its quality batteries. For example, the electrical system in the BMW i3 is stabilised by a Banner Running Bull AGM Backup, which feeds power to the car’s 12V consumers.

The German Post Office also delivers with Banner.
For more than a year, Deutsche Post (Germany Post Office) has been using DHL e-transporters for short delivery runs. In the so-called StreetScooters, which are the product of an innovative start-up, the battery is installed behind the driver’s cab and must therefore be maintenance-free. At present, Banner is supplying the required power with a Starting Bull and an 8A charger has also been installed in order to allow the simultaneous recharging of the 12V and high-voltage batteries over night.

Lead-acid batteries supply flexible energy.
Future-oriented, fuel-saving vehicles require a reliable energy source. Therefore, owing to their high levels of cyclical resistance, in particular advanced lead-acid batteries in the form of absorbent glass mat (AGM) and enhanced flooded batteries (EFB) are employed in micro-hybrid concepts. Above all, the AGM battery, which uses glass webs, is an extremely efficient battery technology that allows the flexible and extensive energy management that is vital for the vehicle technologies of tomorrow.

An emphasis on research and development
The automotive industry sees lithium-ion technology as possessing the greatest future potential for full hybrid vehicles. And although Banner is regarded as one of the leading suppliers of AGM and EFB batteries for micro-hybrid vehicles with start-stop systems, as an innovative company it is careful not to rest on its laurels. For as Andreas Bawart, the Banner Commercial CEO, explains: “A number of development projects are in progress, which are aimed at further boosting the efficiency of the AGM
battery. We have set ourselves the target of improving power charging and discharge through optimised cell design, additives in the active mass and various design measures.”

Menzi Muck Schreitbagger, Banner Running Bull AGM Batterien
Menzi Muck - Ruck Zuck.
Walking excavators powered by Banner.
Walking, or spider, excavators are construction industry machines that are employed in terrain that is relatively inaccessible such as forests, steep mountainsides and ski slopes.
The walking excavator was invented in 1966 by the 69-year-old Swiss manufacturer, Ernst Menzi, who marketed the idea via his company Menzi Muck. The name “Muck” was adopted as a reference to the German fairy tale character “Muck, the man who’s small, but can do it all.” Initially, the machines were of very simple design and offered few comforts, as confirmed by an article in the “ Neue Zürcher Zeitung” from the end of the 1960s, which described the excavator as, “A digger with spindly legs and the charm of a badly-lit telephone box.”

Today, the Menzi Muck walking excavator owes its international success to a wealth of innovative details. These include its sophisticated high-tech chassis and the patented digger boom, as well as the various hydraulic cylinders that enable the all-rounder to match its wheels and supports to any terrain. This is the reason why in some countries, the walking excavator is known as a spider excavator.

In tracked excavators, the tipping edge is fixed, however in the case of the Menzi Muck this can be altered in line with the working operation by means of the adjustable wheel and claw supports. It is thus possible that lifting and breakout can be achieved, which are unobtainable with a standard tracked excavator. In fact, a 9.5t Menzi Muck offers the same output as a 20 t tracked excavator.

Owing to the extremely high vibration levels and the special installation position, Banner Running Bull AGM batteries are being used increasingly to start the engine of the Menzi Muck and supply its electrical system.
