Customised process solutions for your entire value chain

Customised process solutions for your entire value chain SEW-Eurodrive's process portfolio for drive technology is innovative and transparent.

DriveBenefits from SEW-Eurodrive offer a variety of practice-oriented possibilities to accelerate processes in every value creation phase, to simplify these processes, and to handle them in a cost-optimised manner. Selecting the suitable components and combining them to form an overall concept will give you sustainable benefits including measurable cost savings, reduced expenditure of time, increased process safety, increased efficiency and enhanced process automation

The project planning tools and the DriveConfigurator from SEW-Eurodrive bring you support before placing your order. Simply choose the components from the comprehensive range of products offered by the company, combine them, and use them effectively. In this way SEW-Eurodrive enables planners and design engineers to conveniently plan their systems by offering them a wide selection of CAD models in 2D or 3D. All this is easily accessible and available at any time.

Order and procurement logistics: Electronic data interchange is the fastest and most efficient way for you to transmit order, delivery and invoice data. SEW-Eurodrive will happily advise you on how to benefit from automated order processing. Combined with SEW-Eurodrive's customised procurement logistics, you will save precious time, avoid mistakes in order processing and increase the efficiency.

Material flow and startup: All deliveries and their internal further processing can be controlled efficiently using DriveTag. In this way, the effort in your own incoming goods department is reduced and the internal material flow gains in dynamics. The new documentation search offered by SEW-Eurodrive lets you create customised documentation packages for your customer documentation.

Operation and spare parts procurement: SEW-Eurodrive's process solutions go far beyond the delivery of the company's products. For example, you can optimise your spare parts management using the DriveGate online platform, your portal for a variety of process solutions. Here you can directly inquire and order the parts you need. Processing is carried out directly by the responsible sales employee who is available if you have any questions.

Engineering and selection
SEW Workbench: The SEW Workbench is a planning and configuration tool for specifying SEW-Eurodrive products. The SEW Workbench includes a complete electronic product catalogue, all required documentation, and an option for creating individual CAD files. In this way you can easily and quickly create complex configurations and virtually check their functions.

DriveCAD: CAD data on all SEW-Eurodrive products are available on our DriveGate customer portal. You can either download CAD data in one of the various formats, or you can integrate the data directly in your CAD environment by the click of a button. You neither need the SEW Workbench nor other software installations to directly access the required drawings. The registration required for accessing DriveGate is free of charge.

EPLAN macros: For efficient electric design, SEW-Eurodrive offers product data within EPLAN Electric P8. Apart from the typical macro drawings, this product data also comprises the complete technical data and product information. The product data can be directly downloaded from the EPLAN data portal to a P8 wiring diagram project. This saves you a lot of time for creating wiring diagrams as there is no need for creating your own drawings and no complex data has to be prepared.

DriveConfigurator: This innovative DriveGate application lets you configure your drive online and you will directly obtain all the information on the required product. The guided selection will navigate you through all available drive options in a user-friendly manner. All the required documents (operating instructions, parts lists) as well as CAD models and dimension sheets will be available after the download. In this case as well, you can conveniently transfer CAD models to your CAD environment by the click of a button. You can also directly initiate a request for quotation. A template management lets you save drive configurations so you can use them for other order inquiries. The DriveConfigurator is also available as offline version in the event that you do not have access to the internet.

Order and procurement logistics
Electronic data interchange: SEW-Eurodrive offers various templates for electronic data interchange (order, order confirmation, invoice, etc.) and formats that enable direct connection to SEW-Eurodrive. In this way, the entire order management can be handled directly and electronically. Doing so will increase process safety and lets you save costs. Connection to external order platforms is also supported.

Customised procurement logistics: SEW-Eurodrive's innovative procurement logistics lets you combine several components to form a standardised solution. You can assign any name to this package so you can easily order it again and again. The identification is fixed so that the order can be easily processed and automatically identified in your company. This is also how the order can be easily assigned to the individual assembly stations. The result is reduced costs, and your intralogistics becomes easier.

Electronic invoicing: Electronic invoices from SEW-Eurodrive make invoice receipt processing easier and facilitate your administrative processes. Direct connection via electronic data interchange (EDI) is not required. If you want to have your invoices sent electronically, just contact SEW-Eurodrive to agree on the required modalities.

Order-specific documentation: DriveGate gives you access to a variety of product-specific documents. A new function lets you view a list of any documentation relevant for your order by simply entering your order number. You can easily collect the required documents in the language you need and download them. Or you can order the documents on a data CD.

Intelligent material flow - DriveTag: SEW-Eurodrive's DriveBenefits module allows you to automate your incoming goods process and optimise the flow of goods.
