National Sales Manager Norman Maleka comments: “Our aim is to offer complete solutions, as opposed to simply being a component supplier. Our expertise, experience and extensive project track record stand us in good stead in this regard.” Describing bauma CONEXPO Africa 2018 as an ideal platform to target potential end-users of its diverse productrange, in a wide variety of industrial sectors, Maleka says that visitors to the SEW-Eurodrive stand will be able to see the company’s latest products in action, including a mini conveyor set-up and transfer station.


This latest innovation from the drive and automation technology leader, comprising a modular driven roller and gearmotor, boasts a 20% higher power rating and overload capacity. An integrated encoder allows for accurate positioning, with intelligent centralised or decentralised motor control, improved service life and durability and future-proof Ethernet networking.

Additional features include precision ramp-up, zero pressure accumulation, merger and tracking, torque on demand, automatic configuration and sensor recognition, diagnostics, and an IP54 protection rating. End-users for the new drive system range from OEMs to system integrators and specific applications such as packing houses and even automotive manufacturers.

IE3-compliant motors

The latest DRN series of IE3-compliant motors will also be displayed as part of the OEM’s Total Solutions approach. “Not only do we keep our customers up to date about all of the benefits of our latest innovations, we also advise on application-specific requirements,” adds Maleka.
