Drive Technology with Tons of Power
ABM Greiffenberger at the SPS IPC Drives 2018:
Drive Technology with Tons of Power

The SPS IPC Drives 2018 (27th until 29th November, Nuremberg) is the ideal platform for ABM Greiffenberger to present its comprehensive range of powerful and energy-efficient drive technology for a large variety of industrial applications. Among the highlights in hall 3, booth 520, are besides parallel shaft and angular gearboxes and SINOCHRON® Motors, customized and application-specific drives solutions.

Among the new innovations is the parallel shaft gear FGA 172/173 that can continuously transmit torques of up to 170 Nm and is available with two or three stage gearing. It is especially suitable for use in material handlings technology, e.g. as a drive in chain conveyors, conveyor belts, rotary tables and vertical conveyors, but also as a crane travel drive. This gearbox - as well as the helical and angular gearboxes of ABM Greiffenberger - can be easily combined with three-phase asynchronous motors as well as with SINOCHRON® Motors.


The new parallel shaft gear FGA 172 from ABM Greiffenberger scores points as a drive used in materials handling technology as well as used as a crane travel drive.


In Nuremberg, ABM Greiffenberger will also present its large selection of energy-efficient SINOCHRON® Motors newly expanded by IEC frame sizes 80 and 100 with up to 13 kW of output. These motors are characterized by high power densities and efficiencies. This is made possible by permanently excited synchronous motors virtually operating without rotor losses. Thanks to anisotropic rotor geometry and optimum ratio of inductance in longitudinal and transverse directions and combined with optimally tuned controller from ABM Greiffenberger, SINOCHRON® Motors can be operated sensorless. Without rotary encoders the drive runs smoothly ensuring maximum user availability and convinces daily with its economic efficiency. Drastically lower energy costs provide quick amortization; moreover, they also offer handling benefits. In many cases, a reduction in motor frame size at the same output is possible: The compact and low-weight motor can easily be integrated into applications. Apart from being used in intralogistics, SINOCHRON Motors excel in many more industrial applications.


SINOCHRON® Motors from ABM are characterised by high energy efficiency and reliability, among other things.


Prepared for Industry 4.0
Whether installed centrally in electrical cabinets or decentrally as motor-mounted inverters: ABM Greiffenberger offers the optimum controller for every application. Application-specific versions round off the portfolio. The controllers are tuned to all motors and can optionally be equipped with the corresponding BUS-systems. Thus, they can be networked and are suitable for Industry 4.0 requirements. The topic Industry 4.0 is in the focus “Networked systems are working more efficiently. Intelligent drive functions as they are offered from a single source by ABM Greiffenberger ensure a higher productivity“, summarises Robert Lackermeier, Managing Director.

For wide range of applications, ABM Greiffenberger has expanded the platform of efficient angular gears up to an output torque of 800 Nm. The two- or three-stage angular gearboxes convince by their high efficiency of more than 90 percent. Their special design allows a space-saving installation and high permissible radial forces. With bevel gears, users receive a highly flexible drive solution with a long service life and quiet operation. ABM Greiffenberger produces the gearbox housing out of die-cast aluminum. Thus they are light yet durable and corrosion-resistant. The gearboxes are exceptionally compact and virtually maintenance-free.

Advanced Development and Manufacturing Expertise
The ABM Greiffenberger exhibit demonstrates its fortitude as a developer of efficient industry-specific and customized drive solutions. All products are designed in-house. Even complex prototypes can be quickly finished thanks to in-house additive manufacturing capabilities. State-of-the-art testing technologies, dynos and a test laboratory for material analysis ensure highest quality in design and engineering already during the development stage. With a state-of-the-art aluminum die-casting foundry, the company has attained a leading position in the production of gearbox housings. High quality drive components are manufactured using automated yet still flexible manufacturing machines and cells. Robot operated manufacturing cells as well as winding lines guarantee uniform series quality.

For ABM Greiffenberger close customer contacts and intensive market monitoring play important roles. ABM Greiffenberger develops – based on a modular and wide-ranging product spectrum - space- and cost-optimized drive systems that cover all aspects of the intended application and offer the maximum user benefits.
