03.04.2019

Danfoss Power Solutions, a long-term partner of PALFINGER has become a strategic partner when it comes to telematics and connected end-to-end solutions for PALFINGER products.

For over a decade, PALFINGER and Danfoss Power Solutions have partnered to offer the latest innovations to customers with the best quality and reliability. The latest project that Danfoss Power Solutions and PALFINGER are working on, is the connectivity of PALFINGER cranes. In a first step the focus will be on implementing the new Danfoss connectivity on selected crane models. But mid- and long-term telematics solutions will be available for all PALFINGER products.

The fourth-generation Danfoss Power Solutions connectivity solution will provide PALFINGER’s customers with the data they need to make informed business decisions using a global, state-of-the-art, secure communication infrastructure to transmit data to the cloud. Henrik V. Jørgensen, President, Controls Division at Danfoss Power Solutions states that “this is a new way of building cranes and a new way of doing business enabled by our solution, so we’re really happy about enabling PALFINGER to offer this technology.” Specifically, the telematics solution will enable customers to simplify which data they need, and how to use it, to boost efficiency and product lifespan, maximize uptime, report equipment location, use and condition, and much more.

This is an important step for both companies. Therefore Martin Zehnder (President Land, PALFINGER AG) and Henrik V. Jørgensen (President Controls Division, Danfoss Power Solutions) signed a Memorandum of Understanding at Danfoss headquarters in Nordborg, Denmark. “Danfoss has been a reliable as well as valuable business partner for many years now. We are therefore pleased to have found the perfect strategic partner in Danfoss Power Solutions, enabling us to further develop the connected solutions at PALFINGER” says Martin Zehnder, President Land at PALFINGER AG.
