Powerful performance

With extreme power density and high flexibility, the Hägglunds CAb motors will make hydraulikc direct drives the optimal choice in many applications.

The Hägglunds CAb motor was introduced to the market in 2015 and offers an extreme power density and high flexibility that makes it the perfect choice for applications in need for a small but truly powerful motor.

The motor offers a unique ability to deliver full torque and speed simultaneously bringing customers the power they need when they need it. The unmatched power-to-weight-ratio means energy and production efficiency. Compared to conventional solutions, the CAb motor, provides 10 to 15 percent more torque for the amount of energy put in. Because they weigh so much less, they use less energy in the high-speed range.

Fourteen configurations in small torque steps allow tight dimensioning and optimization in relation to the hydraulic pumps. With only two mechanical interfaces in all configurations, easy adaption is also possible.

The CAb comes with all the benefits offered by the compact Hägglunds motors. These include a built-in ability to withstand shock loads, as well as perfect internal symmetry. The latter ensures consistent torque throughout the revolution, as well as a perfect balance of forces that minimizes noise and vibration.

As of 2016 the Hägglunds CAb is even more suited for many applications with new hydraulic connections and accessories such as through-hole kit, speed sensors and option for vertical mounting.

From unique power density to high energy efficiency, the Hägglunds CAb motor means powerful benefits in industry and beyond.

Steel, rubber and oil – digital?! Industrial hydraulics must pick up the pace on the way to the digital future

Industrial hydraulics – today, this largely amounts to standard hydraulics consisting of iron, rubber, oil and, maybe, 24V connection sockets. At the same time, Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things are changing the face of the factory floor: Decentralized intelligence, integrated sensor technology and connectivity have already become key requirements for many industrial applications. Nonetheless, hardware-intensive industrial hydraulics is in a position from which it can smoothly glide into this new digital environment. The requirement: Hydraulic manufacturers must accept the challenge of intensively advancing digitalization.
