Baumuller's DST line of gearless, synchronous, permanent-magnet torque motors, first seen on a lab machine at the K 2004 show in Dusseldorf, is now available in larger models with an integral thrust bearing (normally built into the gearbox of standard motors). The German motor builder (U.S. offices in Bloomfield, Conn.) offers gearless motors for shaft heights of 200, 260, and 315 mm. The brand-new 260-mm size with 7200 Nm of torque supplements the 200-mm model (3450 Nm) and 315-mm motor (up to 13,500 Nm), which have been available for about a year. The 315-mm is already used in several extrusion applications.
