Palfinger and Danfoss connectivity collaboration

By Christian Shelton11 September 2018

Salzburg, Austria-headquartered multinational Palfinger and US-headquartered mobile hydraulics Danfoss Power Solutions have announced that they are working together to develop the connectivity of Palfinger cranes.

Initially, the two companies will focus on implementing the latest Danfoss connectivity technology on selected crane models, with a longer-term aim of rolling out telematics solutions across all Palfinger products.

Palfinger said the data generated from connected cranes will be transmitted to a secure cloud, enabling its customers to make informed business decisions anywhere in the world. In addition, it says the solution will help its customers boost efficiency and product lifespan, minimize downtime, and report equipment location, use and condition.

Henrik V. Jørgensen, president of the Controls Division at Danfoss Power Solutions, said, “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.”
