Custom Parallel Shaft Geared Motors and Drives

ABM Drives offers compact parallel-shaft motor and drive designs for small spaces and quiet running requirements. Precision ground gearing provides for low noise and extended life. Tight-fitting housing covers and flanges prevent distortions that can amplify noise. Aluminum housings absorb harmonics and other vibrations better than cast iron. Typical applications include crane hoist travel drive units; biomass-heating auger drives, and warehouse logistics that require dynamic response, low vibration and maintenance-free operation.

The FG series offers two motor and drive lines to achieve different requirements in speed and precision:

The PROFI-LINE offers two travel speeds. Pole-switching motors (8/2- pole) with specially designed windings and rotors allow for safe soft start. Typical applications are the low-vibration transport of sheet metal and coils or handling of cases, containers and components in assembly lines.

The AUTOMATION-LINE is designed for variable speeds. For inverter use, 4-pole motors can be operated with an 87 Hz-characteristic. Acceleration and deceleration ramps can be adjusted individually via the controller. The exceptionally soft start and braking characteristic of the drive units minimize load swings. AUTOMATION-LINE drive units are especially well suited for use in the glass industry, handling of paper coils or insertion of molds or other large tools.
