The Voith Group achieved significant gains in the first six months (October 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023) of the current fiscal year 2022/23 despite a market environment that continues to be challenging. Voith increased both its sales and EBIT in all Group Divisions. Orders received exceeded the already high figure from the previous year.
ELIN Motoren and Voith launch the first electric motor with integrated safety coupling for the main drive of tunnel boring machines. Water-cooled asynchronous motors from ELIN Motoren contain either the Voith SafeSet to safeguard the entire drive train or the Voith SmartSet for continuous operation, even with frequent torque peaks. Torque limitation increases the productivity of the TBM, protects the machine components, and avoids costly downtimes.
Voith is further expanding its expertise in the e-mobility sector for commercial vehicles. With the Voith Electrical Drive System (VEDS) and the Plug and Drive H2 storage system, the technology group is presenting two concepts at IAA Transportation 2022 that promote an economical and sustainable mobility shift for heavy-duty trucks and buses. “Alternative, sustainable drives are defining the discourse of the present and the technologies of the future. Even today, the result is an unprecedented variety of drive solutions. We are fulfilling these customer demands with a portfolio geared towards alternative drives,” says Martin Wawra, executive vice president and CEO Voith Turbo Mobility.
Voith’s OnCare.Health monitoring solutions include an easy-to-use system for industrial fan and pump drivetrains. It employs state-of-the-art sensor technology and connected components to increase the system’s availability. This allows for easy and reliable monitoring of operating data as well as use in advanced IIoT applications such as predictive maintenance.
Voith is further expanding its expertise in the e-mobility sector. With the VEDS HD+, the company is presenting its first drive concept for heavy-duty trucks. Special configurations for waste collection vehicles, inner-city logistics or long-distance transport applications ensure efficient driving with every use.
Voith has acquired Argo-Hytos. Based in Baar, Switzerland, the company develops and produces components for hydraulics and system solutions with a focus on the off-highway sector (agricultural tractors, construction equipment and material handling vehicles). A corresponding agreement was signed on June 6, 2022.
Voith Turbo will present its compact, variable speed pump drives DrivAx IQ4 and DrivAx RQ4 during Hannover Messe 2022. The new drives extend the broad portfolio of the DrivAx product family. Other highlights at the drive specialist’s exhibition stand will be the self-contained servo drive DrivAx CLDP, whose ten-year success story is set to continue in new sizes, and the DrivAx CLCP, which was specially developed for robotics applications and can be seen live in action at the Voith Turbo stand.
When City Scrap & Salvage experienced a catastrophic failure of the driveline between the motor and rotor of its automotive shredder, the company called on Voith Turbo for a
potential manufacturing solution.
