Electric travel drives

With the launch of the new FAT 325 in 2015, Liebherr added an electric version to its hitherto hydraulically operated travel drives. On the one hand, this development takes into account the increasing demand for electrically powered crawler-tracked vehicles. On the other hand, it meets the demand for environmentally friendly technologies, since electric travel drives need neither hydraulic lines nor hydraulic oil.

Application specific systems

In 2015, Liebherr offered a complete drive train – from the inverter, the motor to the travel drives – for the first time. In cooperation with the customer, SBM Mineral Processing GmbH of MFL Group, the first electric travel drives were successfully put into operation in the field of processing technology in the summer of 2016. The Austrian company is among others a leading supplier of mobile crushing plants.

Travel drive FAT 325

The coaxial travel drive is designed as a basic model for machines with roughly 30 to 40 tons operating weight and speeds up to 5 km/h. It is ideal for crawler vehicles with a diesel-electric drivetrain. The FAT 325 can for example be driven by a Liebherr electric motor PGK 18/10-J.

Technical data

Gear ratio 1:60 - 1:130
Output torque: 50,000 Nm (dyn.)
Weight: 200 kg
Applications: Travel drive for crawler machinery with a weight of 30 - 40 ton

Electric motor PGK 18/10-J

The special winding layout of the motor with permanent magnet technology ensures a high torque with a compact design. This allows precise positioning of the drivetrain between the chains of the crawler vehicle. The electric motor PGK 18/10-J drive for example a Liebherr travel drive FAT 325.
