Wherever a conveyor system is implemented, a custom-designed drive concept is required; this must correspond to the necessary load-bearing capacity, the desired transport speed, the existing space restrictions and the specific ambient conditions of the application.
MOVIPRO® SDC is suitable for both horizontal and vertical conveyor applications : .
  • Integration of all functions
  • Decentralized installation up to 15 kW
  • Established technology platform
  • Uniform system concept

Applications :
  • Scissor lift table
  • Hoist stations
  • Conveyor trolleys
  • Rotary distributors
  • Rotary indexing tables
  • Telescopic fork for storage and retrieval systems

Above all, MOVIPRO® SDC sets itself apart through the strength of its design wherever reliability and precise positioning are required in the application. With its modular, standardized design and freely configurable software components, the decentralized drive and positioning control system MOVIPRO® SDC facilitates the integration of numerous functions, while reducing the complexity of the machine or system.
