As a world leader in drive technology and a pioneer in drive-based automation, SEW-EURODRIVE has established a reputation for quickly solving the most difficult power transmission and motion control challenges. We introduced the gearmotor in 1931. In the 80 years since then, we have been bringing the best in drive technology to our customers. That commitment has led to a history of innovations — the first variable speed gearmotor, early development of electronic drives, some of the first successful efforts to decentralize control, and the first motor with energy-efficient copper rotors.

Rugged innovative gears and gearmotors along with other drive technologies rise to the challenge in demanding wood-processing applications. By Oscar Lopez • Service manager — industrial gearing | SEW Eurodrive Applications in the timber industry are varied and demanding — consisting of debarking, sawing, drilling, milling, and grinding operations. The machines used in these processes […][Read More]
Especially for gantry systems, rapidly accelerating heavy loads can shoot the electrical power demand of frequency drives through the roof. At the same, time while braking, regenerative energy is being put back into the drive system. For Ilsemann Automation, the challenge was to make the most effective use of the braking energy and not dissipate… [Read More]
The RESF37 stainless steel helical gear reducer and KESA37 stainless steel helical bevel gear reducer use less energy, run cooler and last longer than typical single-worm gear units. They resist bacteria, chemicals, and processes common to the food processing industry. The shaft-mounted gear units are available with TorqLOC, a compact keyless hollow shaft mounting system… [Read More]
