Pneumatics & Hydraulics


Bending the law of size, power and speed

The Hägglunds Quantum hydraulic motor range exceeds previous performance limits in torque, speed and efficiency. Hägglunds Quantum is the new name for the Hägglunds CB range, and these direct drives can be used in heavy-duty and mobile applications. “The Quantum motor has evolved so significantly that it can no longer be considered the same motor as the CB range. Tweaks in design and materials have increased its efficiency and tripled its life expectancy, resulting in a bold new step in the market,” says Hägglunds Drives South Africa managing director, Leif Duwel.

The Hägglunds Quantum range comprises two parts: Hägglunds Quantum, the motor, and Hägglunds Quantum Power, which features additional ports and an innovative internal design that enables higher speeds with full torque capacity and high efficiency.

The Hägglunds Quantum range offers a top speed of over 150 rpm, yet it provides a sustainable maximum torque of more than 350 kNm. At corner power, where the two extremes meet, users can achieve a powerful 3 MW without sacrificing compactness or efficiency. Quantum Power can deliver high power with greater economy and sustainability than any previous solution.

“The Hägglunds Quantum range rewrites the rules of power density, especially when it comes to efficiency at higher speeds,” says Wolfram Ulrich, vice president of sales. “Hägglunds Quantum Power is lighter in weight than the previous CBp motor. This saves resources and reduces emissions during production and transport. For mobile applications, this means reduced weight and fuel consumption.”
