Agricultural technology and construction machinery

Over the last hundred years or so, the number of people working in agriculture has dropped dramatically. At the same time, this decreasing percentage of the population is capable of providing food for an ever greater number of people. This increase in productivity first became possible as a result of industrialization and automation. It can be no exaggeration to say that modern agricultural machinery is vitally important for providing modern society with the food it needs while enabling further development.

The construction machinery sector has also been experiencing a non-stop boom for years. And with growth forecasts of 5-6% up to 2020, there is no end in sight. The greatest drivers of growth are data-based systems, electric drives and automated machines. This trend can be translated on a 1:1 basis to agricultural technology, where digital networking and sensors, for example, in drones, GPS-controlled tractors or field robots are taking over agriculture.

Machines for construction and agriculture are always designed for the toughest use in rough environments. Drives and drive components for such machines must account for these conditions. Whether it is a simple gear part or a sophisticated high-tech drive, basic requirements include high load capacity, durability and the utmost in reliability.

For decades Framo Morat has proven that it is a dependable and innovative partner for numerous renowned manufacturers in the industry. Our expertise in development and the production of electrical or intelligent is of particular benefit to you, so that you know you’re equipped for the latest trends in the industry.


Adjustment unit for tractors

AGV in a stable

Driverless transport systems (AGV) are being used more and more frequently in Agriculture 4.0, for example, for field and stable work. This makes it possible to automate recurring, time-intensive tasks. An adapted wheel profile and sealing of the drive unit make it easy to drive on any outdoor ground, even if it is very dirty.

Adjustment unit for tractors

The adjustment unit evaluates the signals of an electronic control device on the tractor and adjusts the desired transmission via a drive shaft. Electronics, electric motor, planetary gears, bevel gears and encoders form a compact unit. The encoder provides a high number of pulses per rotation and shows the position of the output shaft via its own reference output. Integrated electronics evaluate the signals and provide feedback to the tractor.

A custom gear is used as power transmission in a brushwood cutter.

Pump gear wheels


Gears and pump gear wheels for the motor and transmission manufacture of construction machines need to be designed for maximum stress loads and durability.

Crane construction


A Mini drive in a construction crane releases the brakes for the wind-release system. Cranes must be able to turn like a weathervane in strong winds to prevent air resistance becoming too high and the subsequent risk that the crane might tip over.
