Bruchsal, Stuttgart, Motek , 09.10.2019 • With the newly developed software module MOVIKIT® Robotics, SEW­EURODRIVE won the second place in the category "Robotics – Systems and Periphery" of the Handling Awards 2019.

The award winning software module MOVIKIT® Robotics is a standardized solution for the MOVI C® modular automation system from SEW EURODRIVE. It enables universal control of a wide range of serial and parallel robot kinematics. A graphic configuration, as well as the subsequent creation of a robot program in MOVISUITE® RobotMonitor using the SEW-Robot language (interpreter) and teach-in allow for an easy startup. The RobotMonitor presents an intuitive user interface where users without special knowledge are able to perform a quick and efficient startup. No special training is required, while the time to market is shortened.

The Handling Awards are granted by the industry magazine "handling" from the Weka Business Medien GmbH every year in autumn. A suitable setting for the award ceremony was provided by the Motek, an international trade fair for production and assembly automation that takes place in Stuttgart. The award honors innovations, as well as outstanding products and system solutions in the field of production and assembly automation and innovations in the fields of handling technology, robotics, material flow and materials handling technology.
