ZF Technology on the Winners’ Podium of the Dakar Rally 2017

  Supported by ZF technology, Kamaz team achieves 1st and 2nd places in truck ranking

  All top-five vehicles feature ZF driveline technology from Friedrichshafen, Passau and Schweinfurt

Truck technology from ZF passed a grueling test in South America with flying colors. At this year’s Dakar Rally, the Kamaz Master team drove into first, second and fifth places in the truck ranking with the Ecosplit manual 16-speed transmission including clutch and an all-wheel drive transfer case. Using the same driveline technology, the team led by Dutch truck racer Gerard de Rooy passed the finishing line in Iveco trucks in third and fourth positions. A total of 50 trucks entered the race.

 

It is the top event in rally sport. This year’s Dakar Rally took place from January 2 to January 14 and stretched over just under 9,000 kilometers through South America, from Asunción, the capital of Paragua, to the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires.  On the way, the participants had to overcome heavy terrain. Much of the route took them to altitudes of more than 3,000 meters.

Reliable technology for the toughest challenges

ZF technology ensured the teams were ideally equipped for the job – with commercial vehicle transmission systems from Friedrichshafen and Schweinfurt as well as transfer cases from Passau. Racing in a Kamaz, Eduard Nikolaev won overall with a total time of 27 hours, 58 minutes and 24 seconds. His teammates Dmitry Sotnikov and Airat Mardeev came second and fifth. All three vehicles are equipped with the Ecosplit manual 16-speed transmission including the clutch from ZF. The transmission achieves a maximum torque of 3,600 Nm, and its precise power application makes it a perfect candidate for off-road driving. The pneumatic Servoshift shift support enables fast gear changes with little force.

 

The team led by Gerard de Rooy also achieved success with the 16-speed manual transmission. Driving an Iveco, de Rooy himself came in third, and his team-mate Federico Villagra achieved fourth position overall. All vehicles from first to fifth position featured a dual-stage transfer case from ZF providing optimal force distribution and off-road capability. With their lightweight design, these systems are ideal for racing sport challenges such as the Dakar Rally.

1.)Equipped for the toughest rally terrain: The Ecomat automatic transmission and the transfer case from ZF ensured optimal all-wheel performance also in the Renault Truck driven by the Mammoet Rallysport team.

2.)High torque resistance and reliability: the ZF-Ecosplit manual 16-speed transmission is not only tried and trusted on construction sites, but also in rally applications.

NORD smooth motors ideal for the food and beverage industry

Published

on

From its own production, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers ventilated and unventilated motors with smooth surfaces for areas with high hygiene standards. Their washdown-optimised cast aluminium housings make them easy to clean.

The smooth surface motors from NORD are available in sizes BG 80, 90 and 100. They are based on the NORD modular construction system and therefore offer maximum flexibility for versatile application areas. The motors are provided with protection class IP66 and they are compatible with every gear unit type. In addition, the use of energy-saving three-phase motors ensures high efficiency with low operating costs.

Optionally, the smooth surface motors are available with the nsd tupH surface treatment, which is a special process making the aluminium surface corrosion-resistant and particularly hard, similar to the qualities of stainless steel. In contrast to protective painting or coating, nothing can detach or flake off.

Shaft height record for high-torque motors

Published

on

Baumüller is expanding its portfolio of high-torque motors with a shaft height of 560 mm.

Baumüller is breaking its own shaft height record with the current expansion of its motor portfolio. With a shaft height of 560 mm, the new DST2-560 high-torque motors are now the largest motors that the manufacturer and pioneer of direct drive technology offers in series production.

High torque for industrial use

With a maximum torque of up to 80,000 Nm, the motors are suitable for use in various industries and systems, such as servo presses, extruders and shredders. The water-cooled high-torque motors offer very high torques even at low speeds and also impress with outstanding true running characteristics, a robust design and a smooth housing surface that is not prone to accumulating dirt.

Powerful and clean alternative for ships

Specifically designed for use in ships, the DST2-560 is optionally also available with so-called wing mounts. These feet diametrically arranged on the outer diameter of the motor make it easier to integrate it into the ship design. In addition, the high-torque motors have already been prepared for approval according to Lloyd’s Register and the DNV GL. With degrees of efficiency of 96% over a broad speed range, the DST2-560 motors are very energy-efficient.

Module systems with higher performance

Published

on

The drive and automation specialist Baumüller is introducing new axis units for its module system b maXX 5000. The new units are suitable for a performance range with a peak performance of up to 240 kW. The entire range of b maXX 5000 devices covers a nominal power range of 1 to 100 kW and thus displays a suitable solution for various applications in machine and plant construction

Safe stackable servo controller

The converter series b maXX 5000 includes feed-in and regenerative units as well as drive units, which can be quickly and easily combined by an integrated drive connect system. For the machine builder and operator this means less installation effort and short start-up and service times. The controllers are available in the air, water and cold plate cooling types and score with minimal assembly space thanks to high performance density. With plug-in modules the devices can be equipped with safety functions according to IEC 61800-5-2. The machine builder can choose from four different modules to adapt the safety functions to his specific application. The plug-in modules enable a fast and flexible reaction to new requirements.
