Open & closed loop functionality
The Sprinter production facility in Mercedes-Benz’s Ludwigsfelde plant in Berlin, needed an update. The body shop, ventilation/extraction of the factory and the final assembly automation all needed a revamp.
The drives are used in various functions, from the control of conveyor belts, scissor lifts, and advanced compact storage operations, to ventilation and extraction systems.
The customer's view
We like the programming flexibility and openness of the Unidrive range, which enabled us to use a standard equipment range for all relevant applications and allowed us to use our own process expertise in the form of a standard user programme. To simplify maintenance, we have restricted ourselves to one make and one type of frequency converter for all applications over 1.1 kW, and the system was designed to eliminate long downtimes.
