SEW-EURODRIVE: New product announcement: Mechatronic industrial gear unit
October 15, 2019
With SEW-Eurodrive’s new mechatronic industrial gear unit, they will be the first supplier to deliver industrial gear units, motors and decentralized frequency inverters in a standard package. The inverter-controlled Plug & Play solution reduces project planning to a small number of interfaces.
Inverter-controlled drive technology from a single source
The world’s first mechatronic industrial gear unit is an innovative system solution that ensures practical benefits and profitability across all stages, from the initial inquiry right through to maintenance. Everything stems from a single source.
The system provides you with the full functionality and flexibility of frequency-controlled drive technology in the easiest possible way. The factory-assembled mechatronic industrial gear unit is the first inverter-controlled Plug & Play solution of its kind worldwide.
Combining optimally matched components into one product reduces project planning to a small number of interfaces. Pre-prepared system information and optimized logistics ensure smooth plant planning and fast delivery times. The minimized connection outlay and preset control electronics enable exceptionally fast production startup. Straightforward setting options, maximized flexibility and full transparency during operation lead to optimal conveying processes. Availability is maximized thanks to minimized maintenance and servicing.
Mechatronic system intelligence – in a standard package
The mechatronic industrial gear unit is set to revolutionize industry with its system intelligence. The intelligent integration of all components allows linked-up sensor technology to be used to monitor, evaluate and control both the drive status and process status. Quick reaction to changes, redundancy in design and high power density ensure efficient processes, increased productivity and a wider range of options – thus paving the way for more intelligent industry.
