Motor range pushes the performance envelope

Online Editor

Hägglunds is entering a new space with the Hägglunds Quantum range of hydraulic motors. The range does away with established barriers, combining torque and speed with what it describes as “previously unthinkable efficiency”. For direct drives in heavy-duty applications, it creates a powerful new reality, says its maker.

The Quantum range shapes proven strengths into an extraordinary new performance curve. It offers a top speed of over 150rpm, yet it provides a sustainable maximum torque of more than 350kNm. At corner power, where the two extremes meet, users can achieve 3MW – without sacrificing compactness or efficiency.

“The Quantum range rewrites the rules of power density, especially when it comes to efficiency at higher speeds,” says Wolfram Ulrich at Hägglunds. “By stretching the limits so far beyond previous solutions, it introduces possibilities for greener operation, mobile applications and more.”

Within the new range are two motors with shared DNA. Quantum is the new name for the CB, which has evolved so significantly over time that it can no longer be considered the same motor. Tweaks in design and materials have increased its efficiency and tripled its life expectancy, making it the ideal basis for a bold new step.

That step is the Quantum Power, which merges a slim new connection block with this reliable foundation. Through additional ports and innovative internal design, the block enables far higher speeds while retaining full torque capacity at high efficiency. Consequently, the Quantum Power can deliver high power with greater economy and sustainability than previous solutions.
