• Compact with new cooling option

    Baumüller offers three-phase current synchronous motors with new cooling optionBaumüller offers three-phase current synchronous motors with new cooling optionBaumüller, the Nuremberg-based drive and automation specialist, offers its DS2 three-phase current synchronous motors with four different cooling options. In addition to the radial air-cooled, axial air-cooled and water-cooled options, the variant with integrated fan is now available for sizes 132 and 160.The great advantage of the integrated fan compared to classic fan cooling is its compactness. The integration of a special built-in motor eliminates the need for the conventional mounted fan motor. The fan motors often prove cumbersome when integrated into the machine, unnecessarily enlarging the footprint of the machines. Internal ventilation is particularly suitable for applications with high overloads or high effective torque and short cycle times, such as in blow molding machines or servo-hydraulic drives.Fig.: With the new internal ventilation cooling option, Baumüller has made its three-phase current synchronous motors even more compact. The fan[…]

Baumüller achieves this with its patent-pending servo pump drives modelLubricate servo hydraulics intelligently and reduce service work. Baumüller achieves this with its patent-pending servo pump drives modelIn servo hydraulic systems, controllable servo motors replace the uncontrolled standard motors. The advantages of the systems are their high efficiency, compactness and lower noise emissions. The connection of the motor with the pump is a decisive challenge.As a special feature, Baumüller offers three different options, so that manufacturers can choose the one that best meets their requirement. In the Standard Line, the pump is attached to the motor via a coupling, pump support and base flange. With its separate components, this tried and tested model offers a high degree of flexibility.The advantages of the three stages of the Baumüller servo pump; depending on the requirements, are flexibility (Standard Line, left), compactness (Advanced Line, middle) and robustness as well as minimized servicing[…]
