CDM combines the maintenance of industrial drive units with a secure online database that contains the complete history of each unit. It provides an overview of every drive in a factory, or group of factories, and enables a user to access information like service history, the current condition of each drive, and even schedule service by an SEW Eurodrive engineer.
Since it's launch in 2011, big name manufacturers like, Coca Cola, Rolls Royce, BMW, Mars, Gillette, Next, Lafarge, Unilever, and many more, have signed up.
The benefits CDM provides its customers are considerable. The service streamlines, simplifies and increases the efficiency of a plant's drive maintenance regime. It can reduce downtime, cut unnecessary stock, identify potential problems in advance, and target older drive technology that could be replaced to improve energy efficiency.
According to SEW Eurodrive's UK Service Manager, Karl Rigg, the new service 'gives users complete knowledge of all the drive technology in their factories in a way that has never before been possible. Because CDM is an interface it's a bit like having SEW Eurodrive in your factory all the time.'
