The drive specialist SEW-EURODRIVE from Bruchsal manufactures high-quality, innovative technologies for mobile systems such as AGVs and AMRs, among other things, and has already been able to gather many years of application expertise in this field. Suppliers and system operators of AGVs and AMRs in particular, as well as companies looking to expand their conveyor technology portfolio to include mobile robots and vehicles, are now set to benefit from this - in the form of a technology kit for mobile systems based on proven, optimally coordinated components and modules that enable parameterizable and qualified functions and automation solutions.

In this context, SEW-EURODRIVE is now also presenting a new flat gear unit series that can absorb the high radial forces required specifically for travel drives. Driven by the integrated 48-volt MOVIMOT performance ELV drive unit, a laterally offset, very compact design of the travel axis is made possible. The SCM solution (Solution Controller Multiaxis) as a 2-axis version in IP20 also allows application solutions with higher outputs. With the ELV (Extra Low Voltage) drive concept for mobile systems, the Kraichgau-based company offers system solution-optimized travel drives with safety extra-low voltage.

All the necessary software modules for executable PLC programs are available for the various functions and applications of omnidirectional and bidirectional vehicle types. These include, for example, specially adapted kinematics modules for the drive train in order to realize high driving accuracy under vector control.

The safety functions are supported by Windows applications, for example the automatic generation of protective and warning fields based on parameters. The safety controller uses software modules to calculate current travel profiles, consisting of travel speed and direction, using standard rotary encoders via inverse kinematics. This allows the warning and protective fields to be switched dynamically, for example when cornering, even in omnidirectional vehicles.
