SEW-EURODRIVE is movement, tradition, innovation, quality, and service all in one – we prove this to our customers every day and have done so for 80 years.

    We do not just move countless conveyer belts, bottling plants, sports stadium roofs, gravel plants, assembly lines, processes in the chemical industry, your luggage at the airport, or even you on escalators; no, we also are moving ourselves. In our company, there is no such thing as standstill.

    Every day, nearly 550 researchers and developers are working on creating the future of drive automation and making it a little better. Collectively, about 14,000 employees around the world are moving to solve our customers tasks and optimize their processes. This is how SEW-EURODRIVE has evolved throughout its history to become the market leader in the industry of drive automation with a turnover of more than EUR 2 billion.

    The movement you need is created with various product solutions and drive systems. Depending on the requirement or the industry, SEW-EURODRIVE offers individual solutions from the comprehensive modular concept with gearmotors and frequency inverters, servo drive systems, decentralized drive systems, and industrial gear units.

    The individual drive system, custom to your tasks

    If you want to be successful you have to know the tasks and processes of your customers and industries. This is why SEW-EURODRIVE looks beyond the borders of drive engineering to find the solution that is ideal for you. With an oftentimes unconventional way to view and approach things, we have been setting the trends and standards in drive engineering for years. In this way, “engineered and made by SEW” has become a seal of quality in the world of drive engineering.

    The solution for your task of tomorrow exists today at SEW-EURODRIVE – in our universal modular concept of gearmotors, control systems, software, service, and extensive accessories, the foundation is already in place to fulfil your requirements comprehensively and as quickly as possible. The uncompromising quality of our market-oriented products, all developed and constructed at our own plants, are the pillars of our commercial success.

    “People do not need products, they need solutions.” True to this motto, SEW-EURODRIVE has decided to not only develop and produce gearmotors in-house but also supply the customized electronic solutions for these components. Only if the control systems are perfectly matched to the drives will there be an optimum flow. This setup gives developers, designers and planners of systems and projects drive solutions from one source that let them put in motion and efficiently control individual motion sequences or entire processes.

    With our Service portfolio CDS® – Complete Drive Service, we offer our customers comprehensive service for all their drive products. We offer tailor-made services for our whole product range, from smallest gearmotors through to industrial gear units and drive electronics. Our service covers the entire product life cycle: from the installation and start-up through to the operating phases and maintenance, and if required even optimization and modernization.
