Drive solutions for complex intralogistics processes

The international trade fair for intralogistics solutions and process management opens this year from 13 to 15 March 2018 in Stuttgart. Under the motto "Intralogistics at first hand: digital - networked - innovative", ebm-papst will be presenting innovative solutions for intralogistics in Hall 10, Stand D31.

Drive systems from the modular system are also used in a wide variety of applications in intralogistics.

Driverless transport systems will be an essential part of modern logistics in the future. Be they in production, logistics centers or hospitals, these systems transport goods from A to B regardless of working hours, conditions and route schedules. Driverless transport systems have to integrate smoothly into existing processes, i. e. they have to be compact and light, but at the same time extremely powerful and maneuverable in order to transport heavy goods.

BLDC motors with integrated electronics in the power range up to 750 Watts combined with gear units and brakes from ebm-papst are used here. The ECI series (Electronically Commutated Internal rotor motors) are particularly impressive due to their high efficiency and high power density.

In addition to this product highlight, further innovative and proven drive solutions from ebm-papst will be on display at LogiMAT.
