Direct Drive Motors

Gearless high torque – Low speed motor solutions

Benefits are gained by removing the mechanical transmission elements and installing low speed high torque VASCAT Direct Drive motors.

Direct Drive motors

Remove gearboxes, belts and pulleys to directly couple the motor to the load.

VASCAT’s Direct Drive are optimized for smooth operation at low speeds and high torque with outputs from 2 to 340 kW in the 100 to 1000 rpm range (from 50 to 7000 Nm).

Very efficient drive systems result from gearless operation, especially when replacing ratios up to 1:10.

Based on Direct Drive asynchronous vector motors VASCAT also offers a less expensive alternative to the commonly used synchronous permanent magnet torque motors.

VASCAT offers a wide range of options for direct drive applications. These include hollow shaft, frameless kit, thrust bearing, etc.
