From engineering to service – your added value for heavy industry

When systems manufacturers in heavy industries such as construction, mining or cement production talk about industrial gear units, they rarely talk about individual components. In most instances, our customers are looking for custom solutions with which they can quickly and reliably equip their systems and dependably get them up and running. This is why we at SEW-EURODRIVE consider ourselves problem solvers for all things drive technology – and for more than 80 years.

Our customers benefit greatly from the fact that we – unlike almost every other provider on the market – can provide a fully comprehensive drive technology portfolio from a single source. We rely not only on our own universal expertise in mechanical, electrical and electronic drive technology for your solutions. We also offer the necessary expertise in control technology, engineering tools and system software on the one hand, and machine safety and energy efficiency on the other.

As a skilled and reliable partner, we are always at your side

From initial planning and configuring to starting up and maintaining the industrial gear unit solution in your system. We offer:

  • Compact drive packages and tailored, complete industrial gear unit systems
  • Technically adept consulting from application specialists with years of experience
  • Order-specific drive system engineering including integration into your system
  • Quick availability of in-stock components near you thanks to our global production network
  • Experienced service worldwide for quick availability and skilled assistance on site
Your consulting network

When our customers in heavy industry need industrial gear units, most projects are engineer to order (ETO) and assemble to order (ATO). Orders without a design stage tend to be in the minority since the systems are so complex. This is why, for us, problem solving begins with the sale. And since these kinds of projects are often of an international nature, our technically adept consultants, with years of industry experience, provide you with local application support on site – even in other countries.

Your engineering network

Our engineering services range from order-specific drive package designing to specific solution integration configuring, or even planning an entire system upon request. Co-engineering is our priority throughout this process. We are not concerned with quick, short-term solutions, but with working with our customers to develop long-term strategies for their applications.

The knowledge gathered is networked by us in-house. To do this, we work internally with our own multi-product experts on topics such as tribology. This allows us to continue developing and learning from one another. The result is interdisciplinary expertise accumulated over years of experience that are utilize for the benefit of our customers on each new order – for tailored and custom-fit solutions.

Your production network

As a global manufacturer of drive technology and drive automation, we are at home on five continents with our modern and powerful manufacturing and assembly plants. This means we are always near you or near your end customers. A close international network providing you both with experts for local application support and with in-stock components for quick, on-site replacement.
