WHITE PAPER: Maximizing Gearmotor Speed Range

SEW-Eurodrive USA

Driving the world

As a world leader in drive technology and a pioneer in drive-based automation, SEW-EURODRIVE has established a reputation for quickly solving the most difficult power transmission and motion control challenges. We introduced the gearmotor in 1931. In the 87 years since then, we have been bringing the best in drive technology to our customers. That commitment has led to a history of innovations — the first variable speed gearmotor, early development of electronic drives, some of the first successful efforts to decentralize control, and the first motor with energy-efficient copper rotors.

Exceptional solutions have made SEW-EURODRIVE the standard for drive performance and reliability in the United States since we first began working here in the early 1970s. Enthusiastic customer response to our variable speed gearmotors led us to open our first assembly center in Troy, Ohio, in 1975. Within a few short years, SEW was operating four additional regional assembly centers across the U.S. — in Bridgeport, NJ; Dallas, TX; Hayward, CA, and Lyman, SC. Today, we provide expert application assistance and products from our five regional assembly centers, more than 65 technical sales offices, and a nationwide distributor network.
