Conveyor technology

Industrial applications

In all industrial sectors, e.g. intralogistics, automotive, food and beverage or airport, conveyor technology solutions are required for standard applications through highly complex applications.

Intralogistics can not work without conveyor technology. It is essential for the organization, the control, implementation and optimization of the internal goods and material flow as well as logistics in industry and trade. Siemens has flexible and efficient solutions for these conveyor technology requirements.


Intralogistics Applications:

  • Roller, Belt and Chain Conveyors (fixed Speed)
  • Roller, Belt and Chain Conveyors (variable Speed)
  • Corner Turntable
  • Turntable
  • Scissors Lift
  • Travelling Trolley
  • Lift
  • Storage and Retrieval Machines

In the automotive industry, conveyor technology is required at many locations for the transport of car parts. Siemens offers the most modern solutions for all conveyor technology requirements.


Automotive Applications:

  • Roll Conveyor
  • Turntable
  • Swivel Table
  • Travelling Trolley
  • Lift
  • Scissors Lift
  • Skillet Conveyor
  • AGV = Automated Guided Vehicles
  • Storage and Retrieval Machines

Suitably chosen components for machines in food production increase both flexibility and efficiency and optimizes service. With our conveyor technology, we provide complete solutions also for Food and Beverage. Seamlessly with the digital approach on the path to Industry 4.0 with our open IoT operating system MindSphere.


Food and Beverage Applications:

  • Conveyor belts
  • Cross belt sortation systems
  • Gapping belt conveyors

Airport services can not exist without conveyor technology. We design baggage handling systems consisting of tray technology and conveyor belts with intelligent software applications to control the system. Our drive systems are precisely used in conveyor belts for baggage and cargo handling around the whole world.


Airport Applications:

  • Baggage handling systems
  • Tray-based conveyor lines / systems for baggage
  • Cargo handling systems
  • Sortation systems
  • Transportation of both out-of-gauge (OOG) baggage and normal baggage on the same tray conveyor line

Industry-wide applications

Individually customized to satisfy customer requirements, economical material flow, very precise positioning and intelligent solutions in small spaces. Experience our conveyor technology from its most innovative side.

Storage and retrieval machines (ASRM) are an integral part of logistics and the movement of goods. They can create a considerable competitive edge and represent cost-saving potential for the companies operating them by reducing throughput times and energy cost.


The typical requirements for Storage and retrieval machines are:

  • High positioning accuracy
  • High level of automation (full automatic operation)
  • High payload at low weight of ASRM


Technological trends:


  • Optimized acceleration / deceleration
  • Oscillation damping
  • Smart integrated safety concepts (acc. EN 528)
  • Energy efficiency (Green Logistics)
  • Mulit-axis systems with common DC-link with concepts for energy storage
  • Power and energy optimized moving profiles
  • Fast and easy commissioning
  • Comfortable and simple diagnostics

Automation systems for electric monorail systems boast with

  • Replaceable standard components
  • Extensively tested application blocks
  • Spare parts available worldwide
  • Low after sales costs
  • Simple maintenance directly by the operator
  • Free programming and configuration via SIMATIC software


Product selection:

  • EMS400S system, segment and vehicle control
  • Siemens suspended monorail geared motors

Digital Enterprise Suite for Conveyor technology

No matter if you are machine builder or machine user. We always help you from the very start. Need a machine concept or help with services? We are ready to support you in every step.

Conveyor technology

For conveyor technology we use our smart products to build up the best complete solutions. Here you can find all you need from controllers, geared motors, automation technology and other parts of our systems.

Without industrial communication, complex tasks like controlling machines and entire production lines, monitoring state-of-the-art transportation systems or managing power distribution would be impossible. The digital transformation would also be impossible without powerful communication solutions. 

Robust and compact SIRIUS M200D motor starters were made in spatially extended, decentralized design to reliably meet your automation requirements. SIMATIC ET 200SP/200pro are scalable and highly flexible, distributed I/O systems with comprehensive range of modules.

Converters are ideally suited for conveyor system applications in the industrial environment for which a distributed drive with communications capability is required. This applies in particular to the automotive sector, the distribution logistics and airports. 

Our extensive range of geared motors ensures that you will find the optimal product for your needs. With the new SIMOGEAR you will benefit especially from its ability to deliver the highest level of flexibility due to our wide range of gear units, total adaptability and compact design. We also supply servo geared motors and SIMOTICS motors for Motion Control applications. Our servo motors, main motors and direct drives stand for excellent dynamics and precision. Every motor for motion control is characterized by compact design and high operating efficiency. 

Whether position detection, motion limitations of particular machine parts or in safety circuits – our detecting devices manage a variety of information in the field, even in the harshest conditions. Furthermore, we already offer the industry of the future a unique, consistent end-to-end range of identification and locating systems for customer-specific applications.

An efficient power supply is a basic requirement for operating any plant, no matter the industry or need. SITOP offers a complete range of regulated 24 V power supplies for almost all line voltages, powers ratings and requirements over many years.
