From February 13th – 14th, visitors to the Industrial Vehicle Technology (IVT) Expo will be able to meet with leading brands of the Altra Industrial Motion Corp., to see first-hand a selection of high-performance power transmission components for industrial and off-highway vehicles. Taking place in Hall 11.1 of Köln Messe in Cologne, Germany, attendees will be able to discuss their specific powertrain requirements with Altra Industrial Motion Corp. representatives on Stand 2068.
Altra combines leading power transmission brands under one umbrella, providing original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and vehicle manufacturers with access to standard and custom solutions including brakes, clutches, couplings and linear actuators. Able to support diesel, hybrid or electric powertrains, Altra manufactures all products in-house, ensuring consistent high quality plus plug-and-play integration between its products for reduced assembly times. The business even offers OEMs drivetrain torsional vibration analysis to prove performance for an application. Supported industries include agriculture, forestry, commercial and construction vehicles.
Altra’s breadth of expertise is reflected in the products on the stand. Stromag, a provider of industrial clutches, couplings and brakes since 1932, will be displaying a number of its innovative designs. First up is the KMB hydraulically released, spring applied brake, which can be specified in dry or wet configuration for lower maintenance requirements. Ideal for mobile applications, the range can be specified in braking torque ranges from 50 Nm to 50,000 Nm and above. Stromag also offers its customers the benefit of plug-and-play designs, either as part of finished assemblies or sub-assemblies for quick integration into axles or gearboxes. The KMB is a long-standing favourite of end users in the construction sector.
Along with brakes, Stromag is a leading manufacturer of clutches such as the MWU range. Favoured in agricultural machinery and municipal vehicles, the MWU features a single disc, backlash-free, electromagnetic design. Its compact dimensions, zero backlash characteristics and low power consumption makes this clutch ideal for hybrid and other powertrains. Different coil voltages and hub bore dimensions mean this clutch can be tailored to suit a new design or modified to be integrated in an existing vehicle drivetrain with increased ease.
Together with Stromag on the stand will be Warner Electric, a global leader in the development of electromagnetic clutches and brakes since 1927. Among the products on show will be fan drive clutches, which are engaged only when required. This feature results in improved fuel economy, quicker engine warm up and increased engine performance. Providing high torque in a small envelope, fan clutches can be specified in electromagnetic on/off and hydraulically actuated, multi-disc designs, with custom solutions to meet specific customer requirements.
Air conditioning compressor and fan clutches, well suited for busses, trucks and off highway equipment will also be present. Warner AC compressor and fan clutches offer dynamic engagement. Furthermore, customised designs are available for plug-and-play integration.
Regenerative braking is a technology that is enhancing the economy of all vehicles. Warner Electric’s PK (Pancake) brakes offers a cost competitive, highly efficient solution in this regard. These dry electromagnetic brakes work in conjunction with the AC motor and improve overall vehicle efficiency. Featuring a one-piece design for easy assembly, the PK brake combines low power consumption, increased battery life and reduced maintenance requirements. A compact footprint also ensures that the PK can be inserted into drive trains that offer minimal space, which in terms of the packaging typical of hybrid and electric vehicles, is a distinct advantage.

Cast Off for clean shipping
At the world’s leading international maritime trade fair, SMM, the specialist for electric drive and automation systems Baumüller is presenting its solutions for the clean drives of inland waterway vessels, yachts, ferries, offshore vessels, etc. from September 4-7, 2018. Baumüller will be represented in hall A5 at stand 107 with its offering for hybrid and fully electric ship drives. In this hall visitors can specifically find out more about the latest trends in the field of alternative drive systems.
Baumüller has been a specialist in electric drive and automation technology for decades and successfully uses its systems in numerous areas of mobile drive technology. With its broad range of services, from motors to converters and control units to diagnostic software or battery management systems, Baumüller offers interesting alternatives to traditional ship drives and paves the way for realistic solutions in the field of smart shipping.
Optimal Degree of Efficiency in the System
Lowering costs, reducing emissions and meeting new guidelines are all possible with fully electric solutions or diesel-electric hybrid drives from Baumüller. The serial hybrid is an attractive solution where a combustion engine drives the generator and the electric motors directly take over the drive of the ship propellers. The advantage here: A purely electric mode of operation is available here and the combustion engine is always operated at the optimum degree of efficiency with minimal consumption and emission of pollutants.
Products and Services – Certified for Shipping
Baumüller has adjusted its products and had them certified for shipbuilding in particular. The Nuremberg-based developers have thus equipped their high-torque DST2 engines with wing-mounts that make it much easier to integrate into the ship’s design. In addition, Lloyd’s Register confirmed that the high-torque engines meet the specific requirements of shipping. In addition to components and systems, the Baumüller Group offers project planning expertise and service concepts with a global service network and is thus a long-term partner for the entire life cycle of ship drives.
Baumüller has equipped ferries, inland waterway vessels, yachts, etc. with its solutions and thus offers a wealth of experience in the equipping or conversion of ships and offshore vessels.
Baumüller can also help shipbuilders and captains on a small scale. This is the case for example with the steam-powered traditional ship Prinz Heinrich in which a Baumüller disc rotor engine supports the power transmission to the rudder and thus makes maneuvering easier. Baumüller offers solutions for all main and auxiliary drives in all ship operation technology.
Signs pointing to expansion
AMB 2018 will be bigger than ever / Industry figures attest to the right time for investments.
Experts from the machining and metal-working industry will meet at AMB for the 19th time from 18 to 22 September 2018. More than 1,500 exhibitors will present their developments and innovations on a gross exhibition area of more than 120,000 square metres. There is every indication that AMB 2018 will be the biggest AMB ever. “With the new Paul Horn Hall (Hall 10), the special AMB show “Digital Way” and the related Congress, we have created ideal conditions to make AMB 2018 even larger and better,” said Ulrich Kromer von Baerle, CEO of Messe Stuttgart.
Sales markets in Germany and some parts of Europe are booming at present. The Council of Economic Experts, the so-called “Five Sages of Economy”, is predicting that gross domestic product in Germany and the eurozone will rise by 2.2 per cent and 2.3 per cent respectively in 2018. Industry associations such as the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) expect production of machines and plant to increase by 3 per cent in real terms. “Exhibitors have confirmed to us that the capacities in the industry are currently running at the highest level since 2008. Now would be the right time to make necessary investments. AMB offers a unique platform in this respect since it enables exhibitors to present the latest state of the art and show what is now possible in regard to digitalisation in production,” said Gunnar Mey, Department Director Industry at Messe Stuttgart.
According to Reiner Fries, Sales Director at Schwäbisch Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH, AMB is a magnet for visitors and exhibitors alike: “Southern Germany is the country’s strongest region in terms of the production of machine tools and accessories. Every renowned manufacturer will be represented at AMB 2018. They will present genuine innovations and provide a good overview for investment decisions.“ Fries said that his company will exhibit fully automated machines as a highlight at AMB.
“AMB in Stuttgart is one of the most important exhibitions for our company since the entire industry meets there and the event therefore becomes an attraction for our target group. As the largest mechanical engineering exhibition in southern Germany, AMB is becoming increasingly more important due to its location in Stuttgart. It is the ideal counterpart to EMO. During AMB 2018 we will show our innovations from the machine portfolio in the area of universal machines and will present the GROB automation solutions.
Industry 4.0 will be a key topic in the context of our latest GROB-NET4Industry applications,” said Jochen Nahl, Sales Director.
Sales Manager Marcus Steudel also believes that now is the perfect time for investments and digitalisation in production. He summarised the exhibition focus of Schneeberger Maschinen AG as follows: “We will show the technically future-oriented level of grinding technology both from the aspect of mechanical engineering and in regard to the man-machine interface, and will present the entire range in our capacity as the manufacturer with the world’s largest spectrum of 5-axis grinding machines.
“The metal-cutting industry is faced with major challenges at present. We believe that AMB, as the leading exhibition in the metal-working industry, has the potential to provide fresh impetus for positive growth in sales. The Komet Group will again showcase a large number of innovative solutions and products at AMB 2018. Clear objective: to continuously give our customers suitable tools for increasing productivity. Visitors to our stand can expect to see efficient standard precision tools, project-related developments and digital products relating to metal-cutting and productivity,” said Marten Veenendaal, Marketing Manager of the Komet Group.
According to Dr. Michael Klinger, Managing Director of Seco Tools GmbH, the clear advantage of AMB is the extensive information which visitors obtain on the latest trends and development in the areas of machine tools and precision tools. “AMB also features a wide range of accompanying and special programmes in this respect. The target group-specific theme areas provide visitors to the exhibition with great value-added. This will certainly also have a positive effect on decisions to attend AMB that are made in the run-up to the event.” During AMB 2018 Seco Tools 2018 will focus on the presentation of innovative metal-cutting solutions and new consulting services which comprise the entire area of metal-cutting production.
According to Manuel Sens, Marketing Manager of Gehring Technologies GmbH, the company is prepared for the visitors’ requirements: The “keyword” digitalisation is on everyone’s lips. It is now essential to show how business and production processes can be optimised in very specific terms. During AMB 2018 we will present comprehensive approaches with the emphasis on our system concept and our integrated range of services. We will exhibit different applications which have been implemented in practice and offer genuine added value.”
Andreas Walbert, Head of Marketing & Product Planning at Makino Europe GmbH, emphasised the ideal general conditions at AMB with the first-class transport connections and the modern trade fair centre. However, he also saw other advantages: “The expertise of the exhibitors and visitors is hard to beat. All the big names are present there. The contents of the exhibition stand is what counts rather than its size. And these contents are at an extremely high level.” He announced new product highlights and innovations from the area of Industry 4.0 since digitalisation of products and services is also right at the top of the agenda at Makino.
