At Bauma 2019 Katsa takes big steps towards e-mobility by introducing innovative gearbox solutions for electric drive trains and wheel hub drives.
The most common challenge in mobile machine electrification is the needed peak torque in uphill and accelerating situations. Katsa has conquered this challenge and developed 2-speed electric drive train gearbox for Electric mobile equipment. Katsa´s gearbox increases torque and enables vehicles smooth movement also in steep upward slopes under heavy load. With Katsa´s Gearbox the Permanent Magnet electric motor can be optimized to vehicles nominal usage which makes the electric powerpack compact and efficient.
For heavy utility vehicles, Katsa has developed wheel hub drives by combining innovative planetary gearbox design with integrated Permanent Magnet electric motor technology. Katsa´s technology enables battery charging at braking situations to maximize benefits in full electric driving.
This creates major benefits especially in Underground Construction sites when the need for air-conditioning becomes significantly lower with minimal exhaust emissions.
