SEW launches new online ‘see-before-you-buy’ service


Innovative drives solutions group, SEW-Eurodrive, has launched DriveConfigurator – a new online resource designed to simplify the selection of drive system components. 

Presenting industry with a virtual “see-before-you-buy” resource, DriveConfigurator allows users to select drive components from the complete SEW-Eurodrive solution-set to build a virtual end-to-end drive solution, and access project-specific product data and quotations—all from a PC.

“Planning, specifying and configuring drive technology can be challenging, says SEW-Eurodrive VIC sales and product manager, Darren Klonowski. “So innovative tools that go some way to streamlining the process are essential,” he says. 

“DriveConfigurator has been designed to fast-track and simplify the initial selection of the drive components for any application.

“It allows users to consider and compare multiple drive system component combinations before making a final choice. It really puts the user in the driver’s seat.” 

DriveConfigurator users are guided through the selection process with easy-to-understand prompts and illustrations. 

Once drive components and accessories have been selected, users can choose to download information pertinent to the motors, geared-motors and frequency inverters of interest. 

These include operating instructions, technical manuals, dimension sheets, spare parts lists, manufacturers’ declarations and declarations of conformity, and 2D and 3D CAD-Model information. 

Users also have the option of sending a request for quotation to a contact partner at SEW-Eurodrive. All selected items can be stored online for future reference and review.

DriveConfigurator is accessible through SEW-Eurodrive’s DriveGate customer portal.  

New users can register for DriveGate at: for unlimited use of the new DriveConfigurator tool.
