Nuremberg drive specialist Baumüller expands the torque range of their DST2 high-torque motors with two new (installation) sizes.
With the new (installation) sizes 500 and 650, the manufacturer covers now a range up to a nominal torque of 60,000 Nm at a speed of up to 300 rpm.
As alternative to motor-gear combinations as well as to hydraulic systems, direct drive technology offers significant advantages. Direct drive solutions are characterized by a reduced maintenance effort due to the omission of gears or hydraulic systems, simpler assembly and logistics due to the lower number of components, and high efficiency and productivity.
With a torque range from 325 to 60,000 Nm, the motors of the DST2 series are e.g. suitable for applications in the plastic and rubber industry, as well as in presses, machines tools, woodworking machines, etc. Shipbuilding is another area of application that is increasingly important due to raising fuel prices and within the scope of climate protection measures. High-torque direct drives are used for the realization of hybrid drive systems for inland vessels, supply vessels, ferries, and similar. As a result, shipping companies significantly reduce their operating costs and meet the emission regulations without problems.
