SEW Eurodrive have been recognised by Frost and Sullivan for their pioneering work in the development of the mechatronic drive system.
Frost and Sullivan cited MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system, which integrates motor, drive and matching drive electronics in a single compact housing in their product innovation of the year award.
In addition to the single line installation, MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system offers a number of benefits and is an alternative to conventional drive solutions. The award cited the compact design, high overload capacity, short commissioning and start-up times, low noise emissions and smooth housing design of MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system, predicting that it will also mean lower installation and energy costs for customers.
The single line technology deployed with MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system uses one cable, reducing the complications and cost of on-site installations. This simplified system structure can reduce the duration of start-ups from weeks to a matter of days.
MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system provides a combination of energy-efficiency, hygienic protection and functionality within a single drive. It is designed for use in a range of horizontal conveyor applications, including automotive assembly, food and beverage, airport logistics and package and parcel handling.
Frost and Sullivan pointed out that MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system can reduce overall costs for customers. MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system features high-quality network characteristics and control concepts of the design. These reduce start-up time and minimise monitoring and maintenance tasks. MOVIGEAR is a pre-integrated mechatronic drive system, which functions within the enclosed environment of a housing and its components are matched to application requirements. Since each component operates efficiently, the resulting drive system uses less energy. MOVIGEAR mechatronic drive system can result in low maintenance costs and low equipment operating costs.
