Compacta’s customized designs

Standard drives are not always suitable for the particular application at hand. For example, there might insufficient space for the application or the performance data such as speed, torque, lifting speed or lifting force does not match. Despite this, manufacturers do not need to reinvent the wheel for each individual drive solution.

Thanks to the modular design of the Compacta shaft-mounted gear motors, existing modules can be combined with components specifically redesigned for the task in numerous solutions. This saves time as well as development costs.

Benefit from our decades of experience in drive engineering for the individual design and configuration of your drive. We are able to ensure the integration of the drive into your entire system and thus ensure a smooth market launch, thanks to the selection of suitable options.

Numerous innovative drive systems with a Compacta drive as the core element have already been produced this way. You can find some examples here.

A customized Compacta MS12 for the special task of solar tracking

solar-trackerThis two-axle tracking system (Solar Tracker) is used to increase the effectiveness of photovoltaic plants. The Solar Tracker aligns the solar module to the sun horizontally and vertically. Framo Morat developed special drive systems for the precise adjustment of azimuth and elevation (± 2°) in which all components – from the drive housing to the cable – have been specially designed for use in harsh outdoor environments. A positioning system developed in-house allows the control of a complete row of trackers with just one drive.

Solar technic

Tracking of Fresnel collectors

Nachfuehrung Fresnel KollektorenThe reflectors of a solar thermal power station must make several thousand tracking movements a day for optimum energy yield. Drives must therefore meet maximum demands for robustness and durability, resist the high temperatures and fluctuating dampness, and withstand dust and sandstorms in desert regions. The adjustment drives from Framo Morat thus have a very high enclosure rating and are only made of high-quality, corrosion-resistant materials.

Metal processing

Adjusting the crowning unit in sheet metal bending machines

DurmlaHigh levels of bending forces in the bending process lead to an elastic deformation of the bending machine’s frame. This results in different bending angles, which leads to faulty workpieces. The crowning unit developed by Framo Morat, which reliably supplies the required adjusting forces, provides the compensation for different bending angles. This development focused on this unit’s ability to be easily integrated into existing control systems. Smooth integration into CNC control systems is ensured using the integrated feedback system.
