Electric forklifts use regenerative braking to reduce mechanical wear. Regenerative braking is a non-contact braking, which is greatly simplified than the traditional braking system. Regardless of whether the driver brakes by stepping on the brake pedal or changing the direction of travel to brake, the electric motor will be in a generator state, and its electromagnetic torque will become a braking torque.
This means that the wear of the brake pads is minimized. The mechanical wear is greatly reduced, which reduces forklift maintenance costs and lowers operating costs. At the same time, the communication motor is more efficient in traveling and braking. When braking or reversing, regenerative energy is generated. The harder the brake, the more energy is regenerated.
