ABM presents efficient drive technology
ABM Greiffenberger to present efficient drive technology at LogiMAT 2019

ABM Greiffenberger will present a cross section of its extensive range of powerful drive technologies, including energy-efficient SINOCHRON motors and compact gears for numerous applications in intralogistics, at LogiMAT2019 in Stuttgart from 19 to 21 February.
The system provider will also demonstrate its development and manufacturing competence. The company offers gear, motor and converter technology from a single source and meets the requirements for higher flexibility, performance and availability of drive solutions. This makes ABM an end-to-end provider both for the warehouse logistics industry and for material handling.
Energy efficiency at the highest level
ABM SINOCHRON motors are particularly suitable for use in warehouse logistics. They are characterised by high short-term overload capability, high efficiency and high power density. In many cases users can use smaller motors, thereby saving on installation space and lowering energy consumption. Especially in the part-load operational range ABM SINOCHRON motors are exceptionally efficient. They far surpass the values required by the Super Premium Efficiency class IE4. Users are thus optimally prepared for further legal regulations.

Powerful gears
In Stuttgart ABM will also present angular gears which are available in two- and three-stage versions. These gears have an impressively high efficiency of more than 90 per cent and are thus considerably more efficient than worm gears with their efficiencies of merely 40 to 70 per cent. The angular gears are lightweight, robust and also suitable for use in harsh environments such as refrigerated warehouses. Optionally implemented plug-in connections on the drives provide for easy assembly. The drives are virtually maintenance-free and compactly built, making them ideal for use in confined spaces.
Helical geared motors stand for quality, reliability in use and robustness. Through their special construction, parallel shaft gears from ABM offer a multitude of mounting options. They are also energy-efficient and quiet.
The aluminium housings from ABM Greiffenberger’s in-house aluminium foundry ensure the low weight and high corrosion resistance of the gear types.
Ready for Industry 4.0
Whether for centralised installation in the switchgear cabinet or decentralised installation as an add-on converter, ABM offers the right controller for every application case. All controllers are coordinated with all motors and can optionally be equipped with the corresponding bus systems. Thus they can be networked and are suitable for meeting the requirements of Industry 4.0.

Compact drive solutions for autonomous transport systems
For use in autonomous transport systems, ABM will present KG series bevel gears with torques of 60 to 800 Nm, FG series parallel shaft gears with 50 to 2,000 Nm and helical gears (G series) with 30 to 2,080 Nm. They are particularly suitable for low speeds and precise positioning. Compared with forklift truck drives, autonomous transport systems do not require high starting torques for inclines. ABM offers SINOCHRON motors with a continuous output of 13 kW for use on level factory floors. They are highly efficient and thus provide for a long battery life.
Application ‘forklift truck’ – all drive components in the portfolio
As a system supplier, ABM Greiffenberger offers all drive components for forklift truck traction, lifting and lowering from a single source. These components meet strict environmental requirements, are particularly safe and enable sensitive movements even at low speeds. TDB series bevel gears, for example, are easy to integrate by plug & play, are powerful and consume little energy. They are available for wheel diameters of 230 and 254 millimetres. They have a drive torque of up to 750 Nm – 15% more than the predecessor model offers. Parallel shaft gears in the TDF series feature high efficiency, quiet running and longevity. This is ensured by the high-contact-ratio helical gear technology employed by ABM Greiffenberger. The gears are suitable for use, for example, in pallet jacks and three-wheel forklift trucks. The hub wheel gears in the TDH series that will also be shown in Stuttgart are also robust and powerful. Due to their extremely compact design, they are especially suited to autonomous transport system applications and low-profile tow tractors. The TDH gear series is also available for high wheel torques which in particular at low rotational speeds leverage their strengths and enable precise manoeuvring.

The FGA 172/173 parallel shaft gear has numerous fastening options, allowing for very flexible user-side installation.

The high-efficiency angular gears feature a high power density with an efficiency of more than 90 per cent.

ABM offers solutions from a single source for material handling applications in the areas of traction, lifting and steering.

Parallel shaft gears in the TDF series stand for low energy consumption through maximum efficiency.
