1 + 1 = 3
More than the sum of the parts
Do you already think in terms of networked processes? Do you need integrated solutions for your factory or logistics automation? Then we can offer you solutions here that will also enable you to increase productivity or goods turnover.
Mobile assistance systems
These are our typical networkers. Our mobile assistance systems network your processes and work stations - intelligently, autonomously and flexibly.
They also support the workers with additional information and can, if necessary, reconfigure entire work processes.
Complete solutions for storage and retrieval machines
Consumer habits are changing - increasing online orders, ever faster deliveries and even same-day delivery - the demands on handling performance in the logistics industry are growing. In order to meet these challenges, modular, safe and efficient stacker cranes in a modular system for pallets, containers or small parts are a decisive success factor. With the MOVI-C® modular automation system, SEW-EURODRIVE provides the right complete automation solution to implement standardized single or multi-axis applications and customer-specific solutions. It is also possible to implement particularly complex motion control applications.
The modular system includes all automation components from the software for planning, startup and operation to the electronic open-loop and closed-loop control components and the gearmotor. MOVI-C® can also be fully integrated into all automation concepts.
Thanks to the MOVILINK® DDI single-cable technology, the matched system components only require one digital interface. The MOVIKIT® software modules considerably reduce startup times. Several of them are used in one storage and retrieval unit: MOVIKIT® StackerCrane effiDRIVE®, MOVIKIT® MultiAxisController and MOVIKIT® Positioning. The MOVIKIT® Anti-Sway module helps to stabilize moving storage and retrieval units so that mast vibrations and pendulum movements are reduced to a minimum and there are no time delays in storage and retrieval processes. At the same time, the mechanics are also protected.
MOVISAFE® safety technology enables safe positioning in conjunction with ramp monitoring, thus creating a safe area. Together with a safety brake, mechanical buffers can be saved. The power and energy management system from SEW-EURODRIVE for industrial drives, which was awarded the Baden-Württemberg Environmental Technology Prize, complements the MOVI-C® portfolio. It enables energy to be recovered, temporarily stored and made available to reduce peak loads. This reduces energy consumption and at the same time contributes to higher system availability.
