Aug 4, 2021

Electric drive technology for highest flexibility and efficiency. Brand manufacturers have to produce a larger amount of products in ever smaller batches and introduce them faster to the market in order to keep up with the competition. In addition, more and more existing products have to be modified or created in several variations (different packaging sizes, new packaging materials, target group-oriented packaging, etc.). This now requires much greater flexibility when making changes of product or format on a production or packaging line.

The cost and pricing pressure experienced in the retail market also forces manufacturers to streamline their production as far as possible. Adding to this are environmental requirements and legal provisions, which are becoming stricter all the time.

Benefits

Thanks to the system design, IndraDrive Mi contributes to cost reduction not only in terms of the components:

  • Up to 100% reduced control cabinet space
  • Up to 90% reduced wiring effort
  • Up to 100% reduced energy consumption for cabinet cooling
