Heidrive GmbH is a manufacturer of electric motors, specializing primarily in the production of Servo motors and supplying both small and large companies worldwide with high-quality products á la "Made in Germany". Wherever sophisticated drive technology is required, Heidrive motors can be found - from chicken grills to complex robotics. The history of origins goes back over 80 years.
The ServoMotor series HeiMotion Dynamic is highly dynamic and extremely robust.
Its further development, HeiMotion Dynamic Next Generation, presents itself with a reduced overall length of over 20% compared to the predecessor motors and strongly optimised moments of inertia. The range of additional flange sizes also offers optimal solutions for particularly small installation spaces. The permanent magnet three-phase synchronous servo motors of HeiMotion Dynamic are designed to meet special customer requirements, such as compactness, high acceleration values and energy efficiency with highly dynamic behavior. Available with different flange sizes (60 mm, 80 mm, 100 mm, 130 mm, 150 mm, 190 mm) they are preferably used in the automation and robotic industries.
The dynamics of the servo motors were achieved by optimizing the material on the Rotor, reducing the overall length and using a new winding technology. Among other things, the robustness is achieved by full potting under vacuum. As a result, the coil is thermally ideally connected to the lamination stack and the motor housing. Mechanical influences from outside, such as shocks and vibrations, have no influence on the stability of the windings. The latter are completely enclosed in the potting compound and thus optimally protected.The most important data of the HMD series:
The HeiMotion Compact ServoMotor series is especially designed for the Asian region.
This means that the connection technology complies with Asian standards and criteria such as performance gradations and cost advantages are geared to the Far Eastern market. Instead of connectors with plugs, more cost-effective cable connections are used and the selection of encoders is limited, which means that a higher number of units can be produced per production batch. The motors are available in the flange dimensions 60 mm, 80 mm and 130 mm available.
However, the orientation towards the Asian market does not mean that HeiMotion Compact servo motors are not also in use worldwide. This is because our innovative modular configuration system, which gives us a wide range of options in the composition of the drive systems, means that the HMC motors can also be customized and adapted to meet specific requirements.The most important data of the HMC series:
The ServoMotor series HeiMotion Premium and Dynamic can be supplemented by planetary gears in direct mounting from 40 mm to 130 mm. The modular motor-gearbox combinations meet special requirements such as high radial loads or different mounting types on the machine.
The Heidrive servo motors can be combined with various compact planetary gears in direct mounting from 40 mm to 130 mm. In addition to the standard combinations, different motor and gear sizes can also be combined.
In the design requirements for the planetary gear motor, the main focus was on the reduction of overall length and low noise. Noise reductions of up to 6 dB could be achieved by eliminating the clamp coupling and the significantly more precise connection of the sun gear. The single-stage gearbox is available in ratios from 1 to 10, the two-stage version is available in ratios 9 to 64. Further advantages of the planetary gears in direct mounting are a low mass moment of inertia and low weight.
Small, intelligent and powerful is how integrated drives can be described in a few words. The fully digital Servo positioning units are primarily intended for use in decentralized multi-axis applications where many motors are installed in one machine. These flexible space miracles are used primarily in robotics and automation and, thanks to their performance, are driving the success of the industry.
Within automation, the drive forms the heart of the system, as it brings the machine to life and represents the decisive Interface. The fact that there must be differently configured drive types for different applications becomes clear at the latest when one takes a closer look at installation space, budget and the special customer requirements. For example, in an application the drive must be able to withstand strong vibrations or is exposed to high temperatures. In other applications, however, the requirement is to install as few cables and additional modules as possible due to the limited installation space. The latter is becoming increasingly important, particularly in automation and robotics. Decentralized drives are experiencing an upswing here and are finding their place in almost every application. However, if you take a closer look at the decentralized drives currently on the market, most electric motors are fitted with the Controller system rather than integrated - the installation space that actually needs to be gained is minimized, since space is required, especially at height.The features at a glance:
The Servo drives HCJ, HCD, HCB and HCF are the ideal addition to the Heidrive Motor portfolio. All motor/servo drives combinations have a CANopen fieldbus Interface with CiA-402 standard and extensive digital and analog inputs and outputs. Other bus systems such as Profibus interface or EtherCAT can also be retrofitted as an option. Depending on the equipment, all common encoder systems such as incremental systems (ABZ, UVW, single-ended and differential) but also absolute systems (Resolver, Sin-Cos encoder, HIPERFACE®, EnDat etc.) can be used.
Our synchronous servo products and asynchronous products are used in a wide variety of industries, such as robotics, storage and transport systems, industry, aerospace, agriculture, medical, gastro, refrigeration and beverage technology and in a wide range of applications, such as industrial robots, driverless transport trolleys, production lines, transport loading systems in aircraft, milking machines, respirators, large commercial coffee machines, ice cube makers or for dispensing beverages from vending machines.
With absolute certainty you have already had contact with our products, even if unconsciously. Have you already flown with the largest airlines in the world or have you had a coffee with the most famous café chain from America? Gotcha!
In addition to the industries listed here, which represent our main sectors, we are represented in many other applications and industries.
In times of smart and digital automation, integrated drives are experiencing a rapid upswing due to their dynamics and enormous flexibility. We have recognised this potential and offer specially designed drives for robot and AGV manufacturers based on the newly developed modular system.
Autonomous navigating vehicles are revolutionizing warehouse logistics and will play an increasingly important role in a future of Industry 4.0. Heidrive GmbH is also continuing to expand its ServoMotor portfolio in order to play a leading role in new developments. It is like everywhere where technology has its fingers in the pie: It makes everything faster, more compact, quieter, more efficient and more cost-effective. This is also the case in the field of warehouse logistics, which is experiencing a revolution in automation and driverless transport systems (AGVs), especially with new wireless technologies. It is precisely here that a great deal of time and money can be saved with the new information technologies. This is one of the reasons why many large companies are strongly pushing the expansion of automation units. But the many advantages - such as barrier-free networking of different storage and work areas - can quickly become a weak point for the entire production process. For example, if a single system fails, causing other components to fail and, in the worst case, paralysing the entire logistics system. For this reason, in addition to safety, the reliability and quality of the individual components of the driverless transport system are indispensable and must be taken into account right from the selection stage. The lynchpin of the driverless transport system is the drive unit, which is permanently exposed to loads of up to 1500 kg. The servo and geared motors from the Kelheim-based drive specialist Heidrive offer a high overload capacity. With the help of these, a long service life can be guaranteed with high efficiency.
Digital change and increasing internationalization in all industries ensure that the degree of automation in manufacturing companies is continuously increasing. Flexible and automated production systems have become indispensable in order to meet the increasing demands on today's production in terms of speed, product variety and process optimization.
There are no limits to the automation technology. Whether it is, for example, an automation solution for tool change in CNC machines or drives for fully automated dosing or positioning systems in the automotive industry, we always stand by our customers in automation technology as a competent partner. With our portfolio of drive solutions we meet the most diverse requirements and thus cover a wide range of applications. In addition, we develop drive solutions specially tailored to the needs of our customers.
In the manufacturing industry, performance and innovation are more important than ever. Particularly in the production of large quantities of goods that are almost homogeneous among themselves, it is impossible to imagine modern production facilities without standardized and automated production processes. In the age of Industry 4.0, comprehensive digitalized and industrial production is already feasible in almost all production plants, thus offering companies from a wide range of industries new opportunities to realize innovative products and high performance. We, Heidrive GmbH, would be pleased to support you in your projects and, as a competent drive specialist for industrial plants for all sectors, are available to you as a strong partner.
The aerospace industry covers all technology on and in flying objects, such as aircraft, spacecraft and satellites, and is one of the most demanding and forward-looking areas in industry. Wherever innovative systems and technologies are in use, automation is a major issue. From fully automated production involving all parts of missiles to sophisticated propulsion systems in aerospace technology, everything is possible. Because automation does not only take place on solid ground, but also in the air. With our customer-specific products, we can respond to the special requirements of our customers and together we can advance and further develop this industry.
The two topics of digitalisation and automation do not even stop at the agricultural sector. Smart technologies and advanced machinery in this versatile field have been developed continuously in recent years, creating innovative systems for humans and animals.
