SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench: Planning and configuration tool

Workbench: configuring and planning SEW-EURODRIVE products
Configuring and planning SEW-EURODRIVE products

SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench is a planning and configuration tool for engineering drive systems. Use SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench to configure basic as well as complex applications and virtually test their functionality. You can conveniently drag and drop the components you want, such as drive, inverter, cable and field distributor, into a complete drive system. Workbench checks your configured drive system and reports possible combination errors.

Did you know…? You can create and save not just one, but multiple projects at a project folder in SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench. SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench also offers more: Like a kind of savable shopping cart, you can exchange existing projects directly with other Workbench users. This allows multiple project participants to work together on your project and guarantees submission to us for optimal order processing.

Don't forget: The result of your Workbench configuration is a product list that can be saved as a PDF file and printed or sent directly to us for order processing.

Variant Management: Overview of the drive technology you are using

Variant management is an optional service we provide to assist you in the standardisation and reduction of product variants and in simplifying your master data management. Say you want to sustainably improve your design processes and processes with companies working with you. Variant management helps you do this.

Everything under control. With variant management, we save your requested and ordered SEW-EURODRIVE products in a database. Comprehensive filtering and comparing options allow you to select a product from those you are already using. This allows you to specify a search for a product using a number of technical product features, such as motor power, output speed and output torque. Find the product you want more quickly and save yourself hours of searching in other systems. Just select the technical features you want, choose the right drive from those recommended, and you're done. This is the product data management of today.

Do you want to use the same products for your entire company? Or approve product lists across multiple companies? With variant management, it's easy. Product lists for global groups of companies can be saved and approved in order to use the same products throughout a company. You can also save preferred products in product lists and release them to third parties. This allows you to control the reduction of variants even during the selection process.

Variant management is not a free service. We would be happy to consult with you on ways to use it.

If you have already signed up for variant management, benefit from the possibilities:
