AGVs are powered by our contactless energy transfer system—MOVITRANS®. MOVITRANS® operates on the principle of inductive energy transfer. Electrical energy is transferred from a fixed conductor to one or more mobile consumers without contact. Time-consuming, cumbersome drag-chain systems have become a thing of the past. The electromagnetic connection is made via an air gap and is maintenance-free and wear-free. This contactless energy supply enables high speeds of more than 10 m/s. And as line cables are routed under the floor, there are no longer any obstacles disrupting transverse traffic.
Other advantages of integrating a contactless energy transfer system are its ability to run emission-free—resulting in a healthier work environment. MOVITRANS® is resistant to contamination and does not produce any noise emissions. These factors contribute to a better level of productivity, safety, and sustainable growth.
Humber and SEW-EURODRIVE team up to bring unique technology to North AmericaPartnership will equip students and employees for jobs of the future Toronto, Ontario – July 10, 2018 – Humber College and SEW-EURODRIVE are entering into a five-year partnership agreement designed to build awareness and provide training and applied research opportunities related to Industry 4.0 technologies, a critical aspect of advanced manufacturing. Industry 4.0 places a high value on clean technology, renewable energy and robotics and transforming traditional factories into smart ones using the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing.
