Storage and retrieval machine with Integrated Drive Systems

Greater material throughput, noticeably lower energy consumption, and flexible standards-compliant safety features with no additional expense – there are many convincing reasons for using Integrated Drive Systems in storage and retrieval machines. Siemens employee Rolf Lorenz, the Siemens sales representative responsible for the relationship with KASTO Maschinenbau in Achern, reports about an actual scenario. The use of Integrated Drive Systems for the drive and automation of storage and retri ...

The optimum drive: What is crucial today and tomorrow

There is an almost infinite number of applications for inverters – they are used for pumping, ventilating, compressing, moving, processing and machining. Many applications have one thing in common: The drive systems required must be highly flexible and scalable – and the market is increasingly demanding customized solutions. This also means that the production and drive environments are becoming increasingly diverse and varied. Seamless and integrated solutions are demanded here, which can be us ...

Integrated Drive Systems ensure that everything is running smoothly in the world’s most powerful large bearing test stand

Guest post by Josef Kampfer, Global Account Manager for Schaeffler Sondermaschinenbau at Siemens. Wind power plays a crucial role in meeting demanding climate protection goals. Especially offshore wind turbines, which can generate up to six megawatts of power nowadays, are in great demand. One of the world’s leading producers of bearings for such powerful wind turbines is Schaeffler Technologies AG & Co. KG in Schweinfurt, Germany. The company recently developed »Astraios«, the world’s most ...

Conveyor technology: Fully Integrated Drive Systems Live in Action

Anyone receiving the “right” package from the postman or finding their suitcase on the right conveyor belt after a flight does not usually think about the highly complex technology that makes it all possible. But whether boxes need to be transported for shipping, auto parts moved from the high-rack store to the assembly hall, or baggage moved from the aircraft to the passenger: Wherever individual or bulk items need to go from A to B in limited operational areas, automated material handling tech ...
