Powerful DC micro-motors key to innovative motorised golf trolley

Powerful DC micro-motors key to innovative motorised golf trolley

DC micro-motors from Faulhaber, available in the UK from EMS, are providing the motive force for an innovative design of motorised golf trolley. The premium model trolleys provide the highest levels of operational flexibility, combining high performance with long life between battery charges.

Today’s golf trolleys are described as e-caddies, and increasingly are the golfer’s the most important companion, enabling the golfer to focus on a combination of exercise, relaxation and a sporting challenge. One of the latest models to provide club carrying assistance is the TiCad Liberty, the most convenient variant of the TiCad titanium family, combining a purist design with virtually limitless functionality.

Regardless of whether the terrain is flat or demanding, the TiCad Liberty stays faithfully at its owner’s side. The hand-crafted titanium frame and titanium wheels glide gracefully over the golf course, and personal comfort is provided by a draw-bar with individual height adjustment and a button or twist-grip control with automatic forward movement. Thanks to an electromagnetic parking brake the TiCad Liberty is extremely stable on all grounds.

The practical motor brake ensures that the speed remains constant when going downhill, so that owners can regulate the speed themselves on any terrain. Even extra holes are not a problem, at least as far as the equipment is concerned, since the TiCad Liberty guarantees a range of at least 27 holes thanks to its lithium battery. Other features are a pivoting joint which ensures that the trolley can be assembled and disassembled in seconds, as well as the impressive packing and storage dimensions of just 68x63x7cm. This means the TiCad Liberty fits in almost any car boot.

TiCad is based in Altenstadt near Frankfurt, and has been hand-crafting golf trolleys since 1989. The company manufactures trolleys made from high-quality titanium, and produces unique models that have impressed customers throughout Europe. TiCad recently started to install Faulhaber motors in all of its motorised trolleys. “Faulhaber is a traditional German company like us that is one of the leading providers in its sector and offers top products,” commented TiCad managing director Björn Hillesheim. “It’s a match made in heaven for us and our own high standard of quality and service.” As far as Faulhaber is concerned, Hillesheim particularly values the quick and reliable cooperation.

The golf trolleys are driven by powerful DC micro-motors with graphite commutation. With a diameter of 32mm and a length of 72mm, the motors are particularly lightweight and compact. The graphite commutation is extremely robust and ideally suited for dynamic applications with quick start and stop operation, as well as occasional overload conditions such as those that occur during use on the golf course.

TiCad revolutionised the motorised golf trolley sector with the invention of the world’s first titanium golf trolley when it started 27 years ago. Today TiCad has more than 50 employees at its headquarters in Altenstadt. With about 370 dealers in Germany and a total of 600 across Europe, TiCad has an extensive and established sales network. All products are sold only in pro-shops and by selected specialised dealers.
