ebm-papst at LogiMAT in Stuttgart

LogiMAT in Stuttgart, the international trade show for intralogistics solutions and process management, is taking place on February 19-21 this year. In hall 7, booth F25, ebm-papst is presenting intelligent drives for automated guided vehicles and low-backlash transmissions for special requirements.

Thanks to drives from ebm-papst, automated guided vehicle systems ensure a flexible, reliable flow of goods.
Thanks to drives from ebm-papst, automated guided vehicle systems ensure a flexible, reliable flow of goods.

In intralogistics applications, automated guided vehicles are the method of choice for guaranteeing a flexible and more reliable flow of goods in the age of digitalization and smart factories. The prerequisite: they must be capable of being seamlessly integrated into existing logistics processes.

Drives for special requirements
Automated guided vehicle requirements for drive engineering primarily depend on the weight of the goods and the required driving speed. Thanks to their modular construction, the motors can be flexibly combined with the control electronics, transmissions, encoders and brakes desired. Alongside planetary and spur gears, space-saving crown gearheads are also available. ebm-papst can flexibly configure the most suitable drive solution for a specific case.

Low-backlash transmissions for intralogistics applications
At the LogiMAT trade show, ebm-papst is also exhibiting DC servomotors with low-backlash planetary gears. The interplay between ground gear parts and other precision transmission components ensures that transmissions in low-backlash, precision design meet the demand for high performance and high availability. This is a key factor for applications in industrial automation and intralogistics, which have more rigorous requirements for precision and stiffness.

Individually configurable drives
ebm-papst will also show its new modular drive system with a 42-mm diameter (ECI-42) at LogiMAT. In the future, it will permit users to individually configure the ideal solution by combining different modules. In the basic version, the modular system consists of motors with Hall sensors (K1 motors), integrated encoders and brakes, a transmission and an industrial connector.
