Simplify product selection of SEW modular drive systems with enhanced new upgrade of PT Pilot® online

Lyman, SC - Feb. 28, 2007 - SEW-EURODRIVE, the world's leading manufacturer of gearmotors, has made it easier than ever to design customized solutions for power transmission and motion control applications with the introduction of PT Pilot® v3.0, the web-based upgrade to its popular leading drive selection tool.


SEW's modular product designs make it possible to choose from millions of different configurations. PT Pilot v3.0 simplifies the choices and identifies a solution customized for each application in minutes. The powerful tools include technical documentation and pricing, and can be accessed using a standard web browser. No special software or plug-ins are required. The entire process is intuitive and completely paperless.


To access SEW's extensive catalog of gearmotor products, enter either the horsepower and speed requirements of an application or type in the SEW model number. PT Pilot v3.0 then moves through a series of point-and-click screens to select the gearbox, inverter, motor, mounting position, conduit type and other components that best meet design requirements. All options available for each unit are listed to help further refine selections.


Designed to speed product selection and increase order accuracy for both customers and distributors, PT Pilot automatically generates SEW nomenclature and order specifications. Each session results in a final quote with specifications, dimensions and pricing that can be printed out or emailed to place an order.


PT Pilot v3.0 allows each session to be saved and opened later to make changes or to place an order. One important advantage is the shared quotations feature. It lets companies set up their engineers and purchasing agents on a shared account with multiple account numbers. Once an engineer has completed design specifications, a purchasing agent can quickly retrieve the quote and place an order.
