Traction Battery – Forklift Battery

Microtex Traction batteries: We keep your Forklift moving!

Microtex have been exporting traction batteries since 1977!

Running a warehouse, or other industry involving heavy materials or machinery, necessitates the need for material handling equipment batteries. Microtex began manufacturing in 1969, and one of the first batteries produced was for battery operated forklifts. We know our stuff. You can be sure that you are getting a quality product, backed up with years of expertise, at a realistic price. Microtex supplies lead-acid traction batteries worldwide and our customers will testify to their reliability. Indeed, our forklift batteries are the most widely used in India. We are passionate about maintaining our high standard of quality and customer care.

We manufacture the entire traction battery in our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Bengaluru, India. We do not buy traction cells and assemble them as battery. We manufacture the Lead alloys, battery containers, Grid Castings, Oxides, Woven Gauntlets, Tubular plates, negative pasted plates, separators and this is a very unique battery plant having complete control on all the components being manufactured in house – gives us the edge on quality as we don’t have to depend on outside suppliers for quality products. Offering electric forklift batteries for material handling equipments in 12V, 24V, 36V, 48V, 72V, 80V, 96V and other custom voltage applications.

Microtex Electric Forklift Batteries Raises Expectations!

Key Features:

  • Specially designed lead alloys for positive and negative grids provide better current conductivity to the terminals with lower internal resistance. Presence of tin and grain refiners ensure a high-performance plate resistant to grid corrosion and offers higher efficiency in discharge.
  • Low antimony-tin-selenium alloys prevent water loss and reduce the watering intervals required, which is a significant factor for maintenance & Reduced costs!
  • Grids are computer designed for optimum active materials and optimized to the cell volume available.
  • Batteries are factory-fresh charged and all cells are matched for internal resistance and conductance with state-of-the-art testing equipment. Traction Cell matching is critical to long life and performance of industrial forklift batteries.
  • We ensure high energy efficiency with “specific active materials” providing higher capacity within the same dimensions.
  • Very-High-Pressure-Die casting machines (150 bar)  for positive Spine Grids to avoid any chance of disintegration due to acid corrosion and ensures an ultra-long life, of your forklift battery pack.
  • The use of engineered woven gauntlets for superior strength offers higher acid resistance and oxidation resistance; will not rupture or burst in the service life of forklift battery cells. The woven gauntlets are proven to be superior in performance to cheaper non-woven gauntlets.
  • A single see-through, flip-top vent plug with a highly visual red float indicator to quickly determine the level of electrolyte without having to open each vent plug, ensuring ease in electric forklift battery maintenance
  • Superior Forklift battery connectors for End take-off terminals ensure a snug fit and firm connection between forklift battery cables and forklift.
  • High-quality insulated connectors ensure that there are no short circuits, sparks or post corrosion.
  • Steel trays are acid proof coated for insulating the traction steel tray – ensuring no earth or voltage leaks affect the forklift’s sophisticated electronics.
  • Bolt-on connectors with firm grip, high-quality corrosion safe connectors provide easy operation towards the end of life, and for quick forklift battery cell replacement of weak cells on site.
  • Auto-fill systems provided as an optional extra.
  • Especially suited high-quality forklift battery chargers are available to ensure long life and high performance for your batteries for the forklift industry.
  • As mandated by law, we buy back used forklift batteries in India offering you peace of mind for safe recycling.

Caring for your Battery

Often taken for granted until things go wrong, electric forklift batteries require maintenance and care to the same degree as the forklift motor and mechanics of the forklift itself.

Traditional forklift batteries are composed of lead-acid cells, which need a full recharge everytime to prevent capacity loss and to bring up all the cells up to the same voltage.

The battery of a forklift is like the heart in a body. If it isn’t regularly maintained and looked after, it may fail.
