Are you familiar with every aspect of your application but need support when it comes to drive technology? Then what you need is a user-friendly way to select a drive based on your application data – and we have an online tool for exactly that. You'll rarely find a faster way to get a drive recommendation during project planning.
Finding and calculating gearmotors made easy
It's now easier than ever to design your gearmotor. Our Online Support team has added a new online drive selection tool to its portfolio that offers recommendations of suitable gearmotors in just a few steps. We guide you through from the starting point you know best – your application.
The first step is to select your application, in the next step you will be asked to supply relevant data on that application, all of which will be familiar to you, and then – at the touch of a button – you will get an initial suggestion showing what your drive could look like. Comparisons included when more than one suitable gearmotor is identified.
The whole thing works without requiring a user login or registration. It is only when you send us a query about the drive or want to order it that we need your details so we can provide the best possible support and advice.
The key advantage is that you don't need to be an engineer or expert to work through your project planning at top speed. Quite the opposite, in fact – the process of selecting gearmotors couldn't be simpler.
Which gearmotors and motors does this online tool cover?
You can use the new online tool to configure gearmotors comprising a gear unit from our standard modular concept (helical, parallel-shaft helical, helical-worm, helical-bevel and SPIROPLAN® right-angle gear units) and an asynchronous motor from our DRN.. portfolio.
Direct accessbecause you don't need to log in or register to select your drive or carry out project planning
Straightforward calculationsbecause all you have to do is select your application and enter the most important application data
Immediate resultsbecause you get initial recommendations of suitable gearmotors at the touch of a button
Detailed results reportbecause you get a summary of product data in PDF format with links to CAD data and technical documents at the touch of a button
More detailed configuration – fastbecause you can transfer the selection directly to our product configurator and use it as a basis to further refine your configuration
How does the design process for your drive work? It's easy!
Go to our Online Support page and call up the new " Drive selection" online tool – you don't have to log in or register to use it. Select your application from the list of suggestions. Now all you have to do is enter the most important key data for your application. Straight away, and with no fuss, you will then be shown a direct comparison of initial recommendations for suitable gearmotors – all at the touch of a button.
Graphical elements help you see at a glance which of the suggested drives offers optimum capacity utilization for gear unit and motor. Price index columns and details on the relevant delivery times provide additional guidance.
Do you want to see a bigger selection or additional options? No problem. Simply select the gearmotors you want to compare in detail or have the system show you a drive in other sizes.
Once you've made your decision, you will be shown your product selection, including all necessary technical data.
What happens next depends entirely on what you have in mind.
- Just looking for information as part of your project planning process?
Then get a comprehensive results report on your selection e-mailed to you as a PDF. It will include useful links to corresponding CAD data and technical documentation.
- Want to order the recommended gearmotor straight away?
You can send us a query at the touch of a button. We'll check your selection again and prepare a quotation in next to no time.
- Want to configure additional details for your project?
With a simple click, you can send the data for your gearmotor to our product configurator. You can then use that information as a basis and explore your selection in more detail.
- Need a more comprehensive tool for your project planning?
Then our "SEW-Workbench" project planning tool is the solution.
- Not quite sure whether your application scenario is being mapped out in as much detail as you'd like? Are there special circumstances or ambient conditions that need to be taken into account?
Then please get in touch with us. We will be happy to help!
