The Direct Drive is ABB's newest innovation to improve paper machine efficiency providing a firm basis for entirely new mechanical configurations: no more gearboxes, no pulse encoders
The Direct Drive solution is based on the high performance synchronous AC motor technology combined with the unique Direct Torque Control motor control method.
ABB solutions are much more than just bundled sets of ABB’s control, operation and drive products. The optimum combination of product features is the result of extensive experience, which is implemented in a variety of engineering and maintenance software and tools.
Aspect Object technology allows enhanced connectivity of drive equipment, maintenance tools and documentation in the paper machine drive. The technology offers excellent integration to other ABB systems and products, as well as to third party products on the platform level.
