DS2020 Digital Servo Drive

Moog’s DS2020 drive with Combitronic capability satisfies customers who need larger, high torque motors, while leveraging the advantages of SmartMotor technology. The DS2020 expands Moog’s standard drive’s capabilities by allowing it to act as a follower device on the Combitronic network, which means the drive can be controlled by any Moog SmartMotor on that network. The DS2020 works seamlessly in SmartMotor-based machines and applications, while supporting the SMI software and AniBasic programming language to configure and program the entire system. The DS2020 offers:
  • Quick, precise movements
  • Natural and fan cooling
  • Integral holding brakes

Explosion-Proof Gearmotor

Bodine’s Explosion-Proof Gearmotor was developed for customers in the oil & gas industry. Bodine has supplied thousands of gearmotors to manufacturers of chemical injection pumps over the years. Some of the installations require an explosion-proof motor because of the proximity of the pump to flammable vapors. Until Bodine released its explosion-proof gearmotor, customers had to buy a separate motor from one company and a separate gearbox from another company and integrate the two components themselves. Bodine’s integrated product simplifies customer’s designs, reduces assembly labor and increases product reliability.

Twin Multi-Drive

The Twin Multi-Drive by One Motion is a revolutionary design that allows for independent control of two rollers on a single shaft, with precise registration and speed ranging from up to 500 RPM. Motion is created by directly driving the outer rotating shell using magnetic force. The gearless, magnetic direct drive design is hygienic, reliable and highly efficient. The Twin offers a high-performance solution for numerous applications such as product merge, skew correction and more. Multiple OEMs have improved merge performance from 140 products per minute using conventional servo-motors to 180 products per minute using the Twin.

Hägglunds Atom

The Hägglunds Atom from Bosch Rexroth is one of the fastest, most power-dense hydraulic motors in its class. A revamped version of the Hägglunds CAb, Bosch Rexroth’s smallest Hägglunds motor, this radial piston motor supplies maximum torque of up to 13.6 kNm and a specific torque of 40 Nm/bar. With full torque at speeds up to 400 rpm, its maximum power of 394 kW substantially outstrips motors of similar size. Hägglunds Atom is ideal for mobile, marine and recycling applications, including smaller shredders and other machines in tough and unpredictable applications.
