The new brushless DC wheel hub motor series i-Wheel 3213

Our new i-Wheel 3213 series includes three wheel hub motors that have been specially developed for use in automated guided vehicles (AGV). They are designed as direct drives that are completely integrated in the hub and therefore need neither an additional gearbox nor an extra wheel. Thanks to the extremely flat design paired with high power density, the wheel hub drives can also be installed in applications with very tight installation spaces.

From the idea to series production

The perfect interplay of drive technology, thread technology, gear technology and BLDC technology

The prerequisite for the development of our drive solutions lies in our core competencies:

The machine-technical heart of our production are computer-controlled machining centers, CNC lathes, thread rolling machines and gear machines of the latest generation. We manufacture the individual parts of our customer-specific drive solutions ourselves on the basis of our own CAD designs. Ketterer's know-how is in the design and manufacture of threaded spindles, gear wheels, bevel and worm gears, linear drives and geared motors, as well as of BLDC motors.
