GKN Land Systems' eDrive solution features AF Series axial-flux electric motors designed as three-phase permanent-magnet motors with high torque and high power density. The new motors make it possible to electrify secondary drives for special-purpose and construction machines. The motor is compact and low weight, making it particularly suitable for use in electric and hybrid vehicles. Depending on motor model, a maximum speed of up to 8000 rpm and a maximum torque of up to 800 N·m (590 lb·ft) can be achieved. In addition to power-related advantages, such as the improved process efficiency of machines and implements, as well as very good open- and closed-loop controllability, eDrive systems also score from the ecological point of view: use can be made of alternative and more sustainable energy sources, and the CO2 emissions of equipment is significantly reduced. eDrive systems are recommended for use not only in the construction machinery industry and the municipal sector, but also in farming.
