Bonfiglioli’s electric motor to power construction industry


Bonfiglioli has built a compact but powerful wheel drive with an electric motor for a construction manufacturer.

The 605WE wheel drive has been designed and developed by the company in house and is intended for hybrid and electric machine platforms.

The robust solution provides an output torque of up to 10,000Nm and combines a three-stage gearbox with a fully integrated 8kW electric motor and parking brake.

A Bonfiglioli spokesperson said, “The integration of all the components in an optimized space gives the machine builder the opportunity to benefit from a cost-effective solution [that is]easy to maintain. Thanks to the direct-mounting flange, it is also easy to install.

“Field tests have certified Bonfiglioli’s capacity to design, develop and create robust tailor-made solutions, perfectly adapted to its customers’ requests and needs. The wide range of solutions, the great quality of the products as well as the advanced technology associated with Bonfiglioli team of experts make the company stand out as the ideal partner for machinery manufacturers in the construction sector.”

Built to a high standard of protection (IP67), special painting coupled with high torsional resistance wiring make it suitable for four-wheel-drive vehicles, even in harsh environmental conditions faced on a typical construction site.
