Decentralised drive system for glass manufacturer

Glass bottle manufacturer Consol has managed to significantly reduce its CO2 footprint at its flint glass manufacturing plant in Nigel, Gauteng, by adopting the Movigear decentralised drive system developed and by supplied by SEW Eurodrive. The glass manufacturing process requires a considerable amount of energy and Consol, which has an estimated capacity to produce more than […]

Electric cylinder for intelligent drives

SEW Eurodrive has launched its first electric cylinder into the market place. Applications with linear movement place high demands on the travel profile. Conventional solutions consisting of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders quickly reach their system limits when it comes to performance. The connection of an electric cylinder to an inverter results in intelligent drive systems […]

Electric cylinder for intelligent drive sysems

SEW Eurodrive has introduced its first electric cylinder. Applications with linear movement place high demands on the travel profile. Connecting an electric cylinder to an inverter results in an intelligent drive system offering high flexibility and positioning accuracy, and new options in programming, power control and diagnostic functions. This concept can be applied to several […]
