“The best possible solution for each requirement”

Industrial applications

Each industry is different. Consequently different movement apparatuses require drive systems each of which is coordinated, innovative, efficient, powerful and reliable. We are fully aware of this and have therefore developed the most suitable drives and solutions also for your industrial sector.

Beverages and other liquids

Especially the beverage industry requires machines, plants and equipment which can withstand a high degree of stress. Thus a robust, high-torque and long-lasting drive technology is a basic requirement for efficient plant planning. Maintaining a competitive edge is relatively simple when you have access to the drive technology of the future. At Schöning we offer you flexibility during seasonal peaks in the beverage production industry and in the filling of liquids so that, depending on market demand, you are able to rapidly switch between batches. Whether returnable or non-returnable, whether glass bottle or PET, whether dry, wet or hygienic areas – we have a great deal of experience within your industry and are well aware of the specific demands of the various processes.

Airport and baggage handling

The drive technology installed in the area of freight transport is subject to heavy demands. Modularity, reliability and availability are essential in the lifting, shifting, stacking and rotation of mail, liquids, perishable goods, machine parts, live animals and many other items. Essential also are robustness, powerful torque, and durability. Whether we are talking about ULD-materials conveyor technology, truck docks, stacker cranes, or modern E-mobility solutions - you need the reliable application solutions from our modular construction system from which we offer much more than only economic efficiency, flexibility, and security in all processes.

Building materials and glass

We offer robust, high-performing and efficient drive solutions suited to the challenging demands of the construction and building materials sector. Our drive technology operates in any climate, and is reliable even under the toughest conditions, torque and secure. Both our products and our solutions are electrically and mechanically, have a high overload capacity, dust-proof, especially corrosion-resistant and water-jet proof. Our automation technology brings movement into the construction and building materials industry: from gravel plants and mines to quarries and clay pits, as well as to cement and ready-mixed concrete production.

The mining industry

The mining industry and the extraction of raw materials expose humans and machines to the most extreme conditions. Highly irregular strains imposed by dirt and sudden loading, cold, heat or rain, all greatly damage the materials used. Our products and solutions successfully meet the very demanding requirements of the mining industry.

Foods and the packaging of solids 

Precision, dynamism and continuity are what is expected of packing machines in the foodstuff and consumer goods industry. The technology has to fulfil various consecutive tasks such as filling, closing, palletizing, and transporting. Thus powerful and efficient drive systems are needed. We are able to supply these. We offer the flexible and reliable drive technology necessary for an economical and efficient material flow process suitable for both continuous and clocked operation transport. In cooperation with you we also develop solutions for complete plants.

Timber processing industry

The applications required in the woodworking and timber processing industries are diverse and demanding. They include barking, cutting and sawing, drilling, milling, planning, pressing, grinding. It is here that the superiority of Schöning’s drive technology, represented globally in the most important sectors, becomes apparent. The high performance density, the wide diversity, the overload capacity and reliability of our technology in each and every application, optimally placed and highly efficient, give the operator the wished-for needed security. We would be happy to work together with you to develop special solutions as they are needed in the timber industry.
