The installation of powerful drives and energy efficiency is particularly important
For our new luggage transportation systems at Gatwick Airport it was important to install reliable and powerful drives. As a result, our key criteria were absolute reliability...
... and energy efficiency, in order to implement Gatwick's envisaged sustainable environmental objectives, summarized under the "Decade of Change", such as a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
Secondary criteria included:
- Reduce the number of drive types
- Reduce the number of potential error sources, e.g. mechanical brakes, fans
- Use simple control systems
Our market research identified that the MOVIGEAR® drive series from SEW-EURODRIVE best met our criteria. We subsequently installed 1,200 drive units and included the specification in our technical standards.
