Mechanical variable speed drive
Voith variable speed drives operate on the principle of hydrodynamic power transmission. They control the speed of the driven machine in drives with electric motor or combustion engine. The driven machine always runs at the optimum speed for the process. This technology is energy efficient and environmentally-friendly thanks to lower CO2 emissions.
Our product portfolio includes:
Variable speed fluid couplings
Geared variable speed couplings
Variable speed planetary gears Vorecon
Hydrodynamic torque converters
The Voith variable speed drives transmit power through moving fluid. They operate very reliably without power electronics that are prone to interference. The transmittable power ranges from 100 kW up to over 65 MW.
