As a world leader in drive technology and a pioneer in drive-based automation, SEW-EURODRIVE has established a reputation
for quickly solving the most difficult power transmission and motion control challenges.
Since introducing the gearmotors in 1931, we have been bringing the best of drive technology to our customers. That commitment
has led to a history of innovations- early development of variable speed drives and electronic drives, some of the first successful
efforts to decentralised control and one of the first motors with energy-efficient copper rotors. Our extensive range has
now expanded to include geared motors and brake motors, frequency inverters, large industrial gear units, decentralised technology,
servo technology, as well as sophisticated motion control and related hardware and software.
SEW-EURODRIVE's comprehensive range of motors and drives create movement in a broad spectrum of industries from mining equipment
to bottling plants, sports stadium roofs to sugar facilities, and cranes to airport baggage handling equipment. In fact, just
about anywhere in the world you see motion, SEW is likely to be in the background driving that movement.
From our first office opening in Tullamarine in 1982, SEW-EURODRIVE has grown from strength to strength in Australia. One
office has given way to a network of locations, with premises in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia
and South Australia. Now, customers around the country have access to localised facilities for application engineering, product
support, service and spare parts.
The most recent development was the opening of SEW's Heavy Industrial Solutions division in Melbourne with the objective to
locally support heavy industry. The 10,000 square metre facility has allowed us to increase local assembly, stock holding
and servicing of our heavy industrial solutions range giving our customers quicker delivery times and a greater access to
spare parts. The state-of-the-art facility includes cranes capable of handling 50 tonne loads, automated two-pack paint line,
giving epoxy paint as standard, and a storage capacity in excess of 3000 pallets.
SEW Australia also offers DriveAcademy training. The training is designed to provide SEW-EURODRIVE customers with a better
understanding of how our products can best be used in various applications, as well as provide more in-depth knowledge of
specific product functions. Classes will enable you to get the most out of your purchase in your specific industry.
More than ever, SEW is global, yet local. With SEW-EURODRIVE's modular concept and superb stock holding in Australia, German
engineered motor and drive solutions are easily tailored to suit local needs, with the added benefit of short lead times.
