Hagglunds Drives has opened a facility specifically for building high-quality, customised power units for its range of hydraulic drive systems.

Hagglunds offers an extensive range of standard power units and provides a package with a wide range of power and flow combinations for customer applications such as feeders, mixers, conveyors, mills and winches.

The company said it has an in-depth knowledge of drive systems in many industrial areas such as marine and offshore, mining and bulk materials handling, recycling, building and construction, plus process industries such as pulp and paper, chemical, rubber and plastics and sugar.

The new UK-based facility is intended to provide power units for applications that require special designs to meet customer and environmental requirements where the standard PEC type design cannot be easily utilised.

Marine and offshore units often require special frameworks and lifting arrangements with designs to suit movement and the harsh seawater environment.

Quite often these also need to be diesel-driven units for deployment on short-term contracts on differing types of vessels.

Although the facility is conceived primarily for marine and offshore systems, it has already been loaded with special power units for other markets.

Extensive 3D design capability at this facility enables improved layout at the design stage, thereby improving the efficiency of manufacturing power units and improving communications with customers regarding interface possibilities.

A 10-tonne overhead travelling crane has been installed at the facility, along with testing facilities.

Hagglunds main manufacturing plant is based in Sweden where the wide range of hydraulic motors and standard power units are built.

Standard power units for the American market are built in the US.

However, there are some applications and environments that require special designs and these will be designed and built in this UK-based facility.
