Danfoss Launches Orbital X Motors
By Mike Osenga23 August 2017
Targeted at a range of light- to medium-duty tasks in machines such as sweepers and scrubbers, harvesters, mowers and forklift trucks, Danfoss Power Solutions has introduced the Orbital X product line that includes two modular platforms, the OMP X and OMR X hydraulic motors.
The introduction marks the first new product introduction since Danfoss acquired White Drive Products in September 2016, significantly expanding Danfoss’ position in the worldwide hydraulics motor market. The new motors will replace the current OMP, OMR, DS and DH motor models.
In comparison to existing models, Danfoss said the Orbital X motors have up to 15 percent higher torque capacity than current OMP or OPR motors, and up to 45 percent more than current DH and DS motors. The new Orbital X motors also have by 20 percent more bearing capacity than the DH and DS motors, and the shaft seal lifetime is improved by 50 percent and the motor has a finish that meets the corrosion class C3 standard.
Danfoss said the Orbital X motors said the two new modular platforms will replace six existing options – one platform will have offset and end ports and the other will have aligned ports. The simplified options can save time during installation, thereby saving costs. The Orbital X platform also offers adaptability within the housing, displacement and shaft modules, meeting the requirements of a variety of application needs, Danfoss said.
A more complete look at the Orbital X motors will be published in the September issue of Diesel Progress North America.
