Drive Adaptation

Automation for comfort, reliability and safety

JBW adapts drive systems

Without custom-fit adapted drive technology, mechatronic automation would not be feasible. Comfort, reliability and safety are immediately lost as soon as the drive system does not meet the respective technical requirements. Thus, there are always two sides for the adaptation - adaptation of the drive technology or of the application.

Adaptation of the motor to the application

  • The winding of the motor is changed to influence torque or rotational speed or to reduce the current.
  • The drive shaft is modified by inserting a spring groove, a surface toothing or notch toothing on the shaft.
  • The motor receives another sensor or encoder to adjust the number of pulses to the existing controls.
  • Modifying the motors by applying drive shafts, encoders, etc., as we already offer some modified motors.

Adaptation of the application to the motor

  • Torque output adjustment by the customer in order to be able to use an engine of a more cost-effective large-scale series.
  • For example, a sprocket wheel with 48 teeth can be reduced almost cost-neutrally to one with 44, so as to use a large-series motor with 60 rpm instead of a 70 rpm motor which might be no longer available.
  • A pinion having an internal notched toothing or an external bevel toothing can be used instead of an output pinion with spring groove for transmitting the torque, in order to use a more cost-effective large-series motor.
