Drives with a system – dynamic, flexible, precise

Direct drives from the Schaeffler subsidiary IDAM (INA Drives and Mechatronics) are state-of-the-art and offer the right solution for every application. These virtually wear-free drives have the following advantages: high speed variability, excellent dynamics and rigidity, and as a result, tracking accuracy, high final speeds, high accelerating and stopping capability as well as the highest positioning and repeat accuracy. Linear, rotary and two-coordinate direct drives are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities as well as all the electronic assemblies required for operation.

Linear motors

The L2 series of motors is especially suitable for handling systems and for transporting small and medium sized masses. They fulfill high requirements in precision and dynamics. The L1 series is part of our range of slotted linear synchronous motors. These drives are particularly suitable for small and mediumsized positioning units due to their compact design and high power density. The design of the motor is simple and cost-effective.

IDAM torque motors are ideal for applications that require high torque and smooth running behavior. Slotted high-torque synchronous motors designed as internal and external rotors are characterized by efficient power generation, maximum power density, high acceleration capability and high final speeds. These power packs are contact-free and operate without wear and friction.

System solutions

The strength of our "added competence" approach is particularly apparent here. By forming development partnerships with our customers and through continuous interdisciplinary cooperation within Schaeffler Group Industrial, we can provide high-performance customer-specific system solutions. This is how we produce innovative mechatronic solutions that provide you with completely new concepts. A system comprising a bearing and motor, ready-to-install, perfectly matched and all from one source.
