ABM is touting new traction drive system solutions for medical machine travel motion control and electric vehicles.
The solutions are available as bevel gearboxes, helical gearboxes and hub wheel drives. The drives are efficient and quiet, according to the company, and can be used in forklifts, pallet trucks and sweeper/scrubbers.
ABM motors and drive systems have a long life with no unexpected downtimes, compact design, low maintenance and can be easily integrated into any vehicle.
Traction motors are available in up to 16 kW outputs with a duty cycle of 52-60 minutes. Induction and Sinochron motors have high-power density and are reliable.
Modular units that are electrically steered use induction motors that are made for specific vehicle battery voltage and brake holding with minimal torsional backlash. Modular designs also simplify the manufacturing process in small and medium volumes for OEM drive units.
Gearbox designs can be easily adapted to the requirement of any vehicle and motors come with sensor bearings or coils.
Motor-brake-gearbox units are manufactured in-house at ABM.
