Long-term Benefits by Early Involvement: Customized Drive Technology from the Specialist
Optimized results thanks to well-proven processes
Customized frequency converters and servo amplifiers are a specialty of SIEB & MEYER. The individual solutions often have great advantages for the customers and can solve constructional problems. SIEB & MEYER has implemented a well-thought-out process chain for a successful realization. An important factor is, however, that customers involve the Lueneburg based drive specialists at an early project stage.
"When the customers approach us early in the development phase, they profit all the more", said Torsten Blankenburg, CTO at SIEB & MEYER AG. "This way the designers know what we can do and where we can support them, which saves time and money. Since we have the opportunity to draw on plentiful resources during consulting, we can guide the customers to a technically optimized solution ‒ without making major compromises that might be necessary at a later stage."
As soon as the first step is made, the internal SIEB & MEYER process chain is triggered. This process chain is well-proven through numerous projects. From the first functional test to series production, all departments work in close coordination to realize the project. All process steps are carried out in the company. This ensures the development of a product that is not only technically mature but can also be produced at good conditions. The customized solutions are designed on the basis of standard components that are successfully established in the market. In addition, SIEB & MEYER looks back on nearly 60 years of experience from many customized drive systems, produced in quantities between 50 and 10,000 pieces.
"With the customized projects we achieve more than 50 % of the turnover in our drive technology section," Torsten Blankenburg points out. "By the way, many customers keep approaching us time and again, which is a nice acknowledgement of our convincing processes and makes clear that our individual frequency converters and servo amplifiers are well received."
