Planning and control software for assembly tasks

Assembly controller

The assembly controller allows you to quickly integrate transport vehicles into your system according to specified procedures. Your process sequences remain unaffected.

  • Operation / diagnostics / visualization
  • Track management
  • Static routing
  • Customer's system controls assembly assistant through production
  • Customer's system contains all information for visualization for machine operators

SEW Smart Order

SEW Smart Order allows you to upgrade your assembly process to Industry 4.0 today. And it doesn't require you to make any significant changes to your existing IT system. A decentralized link between various process modules via assistance systems reduces the need to communicate with higher-level systems. This allows you to adjust individual process steps quickly, flexibly, and with no complicated programming required.

  • Operation / diagnostics / visualization
  • Track management
  • Decentralized material flow and vehicle control via the assistant
  • Decentralized communication and intelligent linking between process modules and assistant vehicles
  • Smart Order contains all information for visualization for machine operators as well as order data

Planning and control software for transport tasks

Logistics controller

The logistics controller provides the perfect solution for simple transport tasks, e.g. with single-track functionality and static routing.

  • Operation / diagnostics / visualization
  • Track management
  • Interface to PLC or IT system for transport jobs
  • Distance-dependent vehicle dispatching
  • Transport job chaining via customer's system
  • Static routing
  • Single-track concept for controlling intersections, switches, and detours

SEW Logistics Coordinator

Experience Industry 4.0 in your logistics processes today: The software SEW Logistics Coordinator combines material flow and control, enabling you to directly reproduce and adjust processes.

  • Operation / diagnostics / visualization
  • Material flow and track management
  • Independent or interfaced with the IT system
  • Management and dispatching of load carriers and load carrier transporters
  • Distribution management and analysis of current transport jobs
  • Decentralized material flow and vehicle control via the assistant
  • Dynamic routing
  • Logical interlocking for free routing on tracks

Customized solutions for your smart factory

What do you think is the greatest challenge for the factory of the future? First and foremost, you need to be able to react to new customer and market requirements as quickly as possible. This means you need highly flexible manufacturing plants with intelligent, modular layouts that can change as quickly as the market trends.

MAXOLUTION® mobile assistance systems from SEW‑EURODRIVE guarantee the necessary safety and reliability of processes, systems, and people just as well as stationary conveyor technology does. But they also deliver maximum flexibility and scalability.

If none of our standardized autonomous systems fits into your production and process layout, we would be happy to help you configure a new solution, tailored to your requirements based on our comprehensive modular concept for mobile systems.
