Drive solutions

Are you ready for a future based on smart drive solutions? We are.

CG Drives & Automation offers complete drive solutions that ensure the safe and cost-efficient operation of demanding industrial applications. We provide smart solutions for cranes, water handling systems and for material handling systems, to users, operators, system integrators and OEMs around the world.

Powering your world with robust and reliable solutions

Material handling

Working in mining, mineral processing and cement making means harsh operating conditions like heavy loads, abrasive dust and dirt, and extreme weather and temperatures, often in remote locations. Our Emotron drive solutions help control dozens to hundreds of processes, optimising performance – under varying input conditions and with varying demand ¬– by controlling the speed of the driving motor. Our offering ranges from 0.5 kW to 3 MW at voltages up to 690 V.

Our crane drive solutions, based on a wide range of standard com¬ponents, can easily be configured for robust service in major crane types including:
• Harbour container cranes (STS, RMG, RTG)
• Grab portal cranes
• Slewing cranes
• Industrial EOT bridge cranes such as grab, hook and la
dle, or portal cranes
• Tower cranes for the construction industry
Special features include optimised grab control and electronic flange control for fully synchronised travel for rail-mounted cranes. Our active front end regenerative units improve energy-efficiency as well.

Water handling

Whether you’re operating in irrigation, sewage treatment, flood con¬trol or a process industry, we can set up a system dimensioned for your needs, adhering to all necessary safety limits. Our AC drives adapt the pressure/flow to required levels. Our softstarters and shaft power monitors eliminate unnecessary downtime, energy loss and equipment damage, while our warning and safety stop levels are easy to use and set. And, thanks to our patented pump load curve protection, deviations from normal operations are quickly detected over the whole speed range.
