Assembling Cells in Wet Cell Traction Batteries that Power Forklifts
Now-a-days forklifts are used extensively worldwide on the shopfloors of manufacturing companies and in warehouses to carry loads from one place to another. In modern warehouses, items are stored in many different layers vertically one above the other; they use forklifts that can lift heavy items to 24 ft or more vertically to store items in higher layers, or retrieve stored items from higher layers. In this chapter, we will discuss applications of optimum decision makingtechniques in the process of recharging the batteries that power the forklifts, indaily use.
