  • Smart actuators for auxiliary drives and operating functions
  • Intelligent sensors for force measurement
  • Electric motors for Off-Highway machinery: Reliability meets maximum power density and compact design.

Schaeffler presents its extended product range for Off-Highway technology at iVT Expo Cologne 2024, a leading international trade fair for industrial technology and vehicle components. On 26th and 27th June at the Köln Messe, the focus will primarily be on systems for the electrification and digitalization of mobile agricultural and construction machinery and for materials handling technology. Schaeffler is emphasizing its commitment to sustainability and supporting the transition to a highly efficient and climate-neutral economy in the Off-Highway sector.

Electromechanical linear actuators are a focal point of Schaeffler’s product lineup on display at iVT Expo Cologne. With the acquisition of Swedish linear motion specialist Ewellix, Schaeffler is presenting itself as a comprehensive solution provider. At its exhibition booth, Schaeffler will also be showcasing intelligent sensor solutions for Off-Highway equipment, as well as electric motors for traction drives or auxiliary units in Off-Highway machinery.

Linear motion: High-performance actuators for heavy-duty applications
Under the Ewellix brand, Schaeffler is presenting a broad range of efficient solutions for linear motion. Highlights of the fair are Ewellix CASM actuators, a new generation of high-performance electromechanical actuators. They offer an impressive lifting force of up to 15 tons with maximum positioning accuracy. These actuators support flexible and precise lifting and tilting operations, while only requiring a 24 V power source and a standardized analog or CAN bus control system on the machine side.

Sensors for force measurement
The Schaeffler LoadSense-PIN enables effective load control. This sensor solution consists of a small steel cylinder that is pressed into a bore in the customer’s respective component and measures loads of the surrounding material structure. A strain gauge coated directly onto the cylinder, based on Schaeffler's Sensotect coating technology, records these changes and transfers them in analog form or via a bus system to the machine control system. This allows the measurement of forces and provides information about loads on components like axles or gearboxes as well as on safety-relevant weight distribution when using lifting tools.

Electric motors from Schaeffler with maximum power density
As traction drives or auxiliary units in Off-Highway machinery, electric motors from Schaeffler offer maximum reliability and maintenance-free operation.

These drive solutions with maximized power density of approximately 5.1 kW/kg motor facilitate the forward-looking switch from combustion engines to electric motors in the Off-Highway machinery segment and make a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions in the sector.

Schaeffler is located at Booth 4006 in Hall 11.1. More information on Schaeffler’s comprehensive Off-Highway technology portfolio is available here.
