The Baumüller Group is a leading manufacturer of electrical automation and drive systems. It currently employs a workforce of almost 2,000 across six production sites to plan, develop and manufacture intelligent system solutions for mechanical engineering and e-mobility applications. Over 40 branches worldwide handle subsequent sales and assembly operations. The portfolio ranges from user interfaces, motion control software, PLCopen, software modules and control units all the way through to converters, electric motors and the full gamut of services for automation solutions, including servicing, installation, assembly and relocation. One of Baumüller’s latest achievements is its recently unveiled DSD2-100 three-phase current synchronous motor with direct pump attachment.

In this enhanced solution, internal toothing attaches the motor directly to the servo pump, which results in a shorter installation length and therefore reduces the machine's footprint. Direct attachment also dispenses with a number of mechanical parts, which is potentially beneficial in terms of reliability and costs. Another innovation is the intelligent use of hydraulic oil, which is fed back into the circuit thanks to additional connections on both the motor and the constant pump. This means the pump's leakage flow can be used for permanent lubrication of the gear tooth system, providing the gearing with a continuous supply of fresh oil. All these innovations are intended to significantly reduce the service requirements for mechanical engineers and end customers alike.
