Bauer Gear Motor has been recognized as innovation leader in Germany thanks to the prestigious award it obtained from Allianz Industrie 4.0 Baden-Württemberg on 2nd of July. The award was presented for its integrated electrical torque monitoring solution for geared motors, the TorqueControl 4.0 system.

A mechatronic solution for rapid electronic torque measurement

The TorqueControl 4.0 system is designed for rapid electronic torque measurement, a mechatronic solution integrated in the gear motor. This enables Bauer’s geared motors to be linked to Industry 4.0 networks and helps to protect, immediately and reliably, the powertrain from overloading. A mains-powered geared motor can be enabled with TorqueControl 4.0 and integrated via IO-Link into the machine control interface.

Karl-Peter Simon, Bauer's Managing Director, explained: "By collecting rapid and accurate current and voltage measurements, we are able to use TorqueControl 4.0 to automatically shut off the drive system when overload occurs and to display, report and assess torque progression cyclically. The system's PLC can use this information to monitor the gear motor status and protect the system without requiring an extra mechanical torque overload clutch. Additionally, continuous load-point recording enables us to alter the motor's magnetisation by adjusting the voltage. As a result, efficiency can be significantly increased by up to 25% in applications run primarily in the partial-load range”.
