Compact hydraulic drive system

Engineer Live News Desk

For the first time, customers in mining, materials handling and other industries have a plug-and-play answer to drive system needs. A Hägglunds Fusion drive system puts everything on the torque arm, from the hydraulic motor and pumps to the cabinet that houses them. That makes high torque and total reliability available from a single unit – in a footprint that was previously unthinkable.

“Hägglunds Fusion brings everything together on the torque arm,” says Wolfram Ulrich, Vice President of Sales for Hägglunds products and solutions. “Not only is there no gearbox or foundation, there are no alignments or even hydraulic pipes or hoses to consider. A Hägglunds Fusion drive system is as compact it gets.”

For owners of equipment in lower power ranges, such as apron feeders, belt feeders, belt conveyors and infeed conveyors, the Hägglunds Fusion benefits are especially clear. Streamlined installation means easier access to Hägglunds strengths, which save money over time compared to electromechanical drives.

“These applications have much to gain from a Hägglunds hydraulic solution, due to their many starts, stops and reversals,” says Ulrich. “Choosing Hägglunds gives them maximum torque from zero speed and built-in protection from torque peaks, which ensures high productivity and low cost of ownership. Now we add easier installation to the mix.”

Ulrich concludes: “Hägglunds Fusion is compact and dependable power, fused with plug-and-play simplicity.”
