Drives and PLCs for metals

Demanding quality

Metals processing requires reliability. The machinery needs to move the metals quickly, accurately and efficiently. The processes require large amounts of energy, high dynamics, precision, and overload capabilities. Safety and easy maintenance of the equipment are essential to ensure maximum productivity of the system. Our Drives and PLC portfolio can offer you solutions for all these requirements.

No matter if it is hot or cold rolling mills, blast furnace blowers, sinter fans or general pumps and fans, we have a variable speed drive for it. From small low voltage drives up to multi-megawatt medium voltage drives, our products offer the accurate speed and torque control you need. Due to precise process control our drives help you to save energy and improve production quality. Our PLCs provide scalable flexibility for the whole process. All of our products are backed by a global service and support network, and provide you with reliability, control and dependable operation in the metals industry.

Increased productivity. Energy savings. Dependability. Everything counts.
