bMotion is a completely innovative modular drive platform of DC motors, gear boxes, brakes and encoders. Maximum modularity, easy combinability and a large number of predefined variants create drive solutions that are optimally tailored to customer needs.

Based on the platform‘s variety, the drive systems can be combined from already existing elements according to customer requirements. Thereby customer-specific developments can largely be replaced by configure-to-order. The expedited development does not mean a sacrifice in quality. Bühler Motor offers superior support over the complete product lifecycle.

With 4 pillars for greater added value on every station of the customer journey.

Products

Despite modularity and standardization, important parameters e.g. specific shaft ends, winding changes or special output materials such as pinions or pulleys are individually customizable, to reach the best fit solution. 

In addition, various interference suppression options are provided as well as temperature sensors for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.

Systems

Based on the platform‘s variety, the drive systems can be combined from already existing elements according to customer requirements. Thereby customer-specific developments can largely be replaced by configure-to-order. The expedited development does not mean a sacrifice in quality. Bühler Motor offers superior support over the complete product lifecycle.

Processes

To enable these innovations, new processes such as a digital order management were implemented. This way lot sizes down to 200 pieces can be handled. 

In addition, this advanced manufacturing concept includes full traceability of materials, process values, and motor performance data. Moreover, it incorporates the Bühler Motor Quality Management philosophy.

Services

Technical excellence, short delivery times, competitive pricing and comprehensive service reduce the total cost of ownership and enhance the customer‘s competitive advantage. 

More than a partner

In combination with the comprehensive support
from the request throughout the product lifecycle, this generates significant
added value for the customer – from a single source.
