SEW-EURODRIVE focused on service


SEW-EURODRIVE expanded its Portugal facility to service and repair industrial units up to 20t, reflecting its focus on global network expansion.

SEW-EURODRIVE has expanded its facility in Mealhada, Portugal. The expanded facility can service and repair AC drives, motors and gear motors for industrial units weighing up to 20t.

This latest investment reflects a continued focus from SEW-EURODRIVE on expanding its global network to deliver its services close to its customers, including regular inspections to support predictive maintenance.

Using tools, including endoscopy and vibration analysis, SEW-EURODRIVE can develop detailed reports and planned maintenance for its own and other brand gearboxes and drive components.

SEW-EURODRIVE also offers a condition monitoring and diagnostics platform called DriveRadar that can be configured for every SEW-EURODRIVE gear unit, and other brands. Built-in sensors monitor and generate data on vibration, temperature, oil levels, oil viscosity and other parameters.

Being local means SEW-EURODRIVE can respond quickly in the event of a component failure to determine the root cause and recommend action. This can include sending gear units to one of its worldwide service facilities for inspection and repair, or providing a drop-in retrofit.

“With a dedicated area for multi-brand service activity, SEW-EURODRIVE Portugal is supporting the local ports by providing a fast and highly professional service for: in-house repairs, on-site services and condition monitoring activities,” said David Braga, Service and Industrial Gear Manager at SEW-EURODRIVE Portugal.

The company is also providing lifetime support for drives to container terminals in other markets including Belgium, Netherlands, Türkiye, Singapore and many other countries.
