A Sneek Peek of the Smart Factory

Here is a quick virtual Tour of SEW-Eurodrive’s Innovation Lab (Lab ONE) This video showcases advanced manufacturing (Industry 4.0) systems  that can be adapted to a variety of industries.  

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs)

Automated guided vehicles are designed to transport payload safely and efficiently. AGVs can be programmed based on your existing motion paths or adjusted to an entirely new route. 

Some of the key benefits of AGVs are its flexibility to scale your process as production ramps up and its ability to operate 24/7 using inductive contactless charging as its primary power source.

AGVs Power-MOVITRANS®, Contactless energy transfer system

MOVITRANS® operates on the principle of inductive energy transfer. MOVITRANS® is a line cabling system routed under the floor that transfers electrical energy from a fixed conductor to one or more mobile consumers without contact. 

The electromagnetic connection is made via an air gap and is because friction is absent while the AGV is in motion; it makes the process virtually maintenance-free and wear-free.

SEW-Eurodrive's Innovation Lab (Lab ONE) Location.

SEW-Eurodrive’s Innovation Lab ( LAB ONE) is located at the Humber College, Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation (CTI).
