Application examples for hub gears

Hub gearbox

With unattended operation around the clock, driverless transport systems (AGVs) in warehouses, parcel distribution centres and production halls ensure maximum profitability and reliability when distributing goods, packaging materials or components. Hub gears from Framo Morat prove their value as wheel drives for AGVs due to the advantageous arrangement of both the bearings and the drive and output shafts.

E-axle for the micromobility

Wheel hub gears from Framo Morat provide drive in electrically powered micro-vehicles in smart cities. The powerful and ultra-compact gear units are part of the e-axle, consisting of wheel, gearbox, motor and control unit. Due to its modular design, the axle is easily scalable and can thus be used flexibly in different types of vehicles, such as cargo bikes or small electric cars.

Hub drive with brush for agricultural technology


NG500 offroad renderingAutomated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are being used more and more frequently in Agriculture 4.0, for example, for field and stable work. This makes it possible to automate recurring, time-intensive tasks. An adapted wheel profile and sealing of the drive unit make it easy to drive on any outdoor ground, even if it is very dirty.

Compact drive system for AGVs / AMRs

AGV with wheel hub drives

The compact and powerful wheel hub motor with integrated gearbox from drive system manufacturer HEINZMANN ensures economical operation in Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR). As all the drive components, from the motor and gearbox to the output shaft including bearings, have been integrated as one unit in a common housing, the drive system is extremely space-saving, with an axial length of just 110 mm. The dual-channel motor controller is precisely matched to the system and controls up to two wheels.

AMR wheel hub drive for disinfection robots

UV-robot cleans clinics

Autonomous mobile disinfection robots consist of a self-driving platform equipped with a UV system. Ultraviolet light is used to disinfect surfaces and kill diseases, viruses, bacteria and other types of harmful organic microorganisms. The user-friendly UV robot saves operating costs and works safely and reliably. When cleaning personnel start the robot, which is equipped with a Framo Morat high-precision and ultra-compact wheel hub drive, it moves quietly and autonomously from room to room.

Wheel hub drive for hospital logistics

agv for clinics logistics

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) are used in modern hospitals and care facilities for the transport of goods. The so-called service robots can move autonomously over several buildings and floors. In doing so, they supply various areas with food, medication, laundry, mail, and much more. The Framo Morat drive unit is ideal for use in medical facilities due to its low noise emissions and long service life.

Belt drive for high-bay warehouse shuttles


In high-bay warehouses, multiple shuttles work each day to ensure efficient storage and retrieval of pallets and storage boxes. Our drive unit is also ideal for this application. It is used as a belt drive for moving and distributing the goods. A long service life and accommodation of high radial loads ensures smooth use and easy maintenance.
