Lenze leads machine design into the future

19 March 2018

Lenze will showcase its automation platform at Foodex 2018, demonstrating how it makes it easier to deal with the growing complexity of machine design by giving programmers and design engineers the tools, products and services required to improve performance and reliability.

Its Lenze FAST application software toolbox uses standard software modules – which are pre-configured and tested – to accelerate the development of systems. The standard modules are constructed to support a wide variety of machine operations, including both food production and packaging machinery.

“It allows a significant reduction in the development time for basic functions,” says Stewart Hylden, Managing Director at Lenze UK. “The time saved can be invested in further developing special machine features.”

Lenze FAST covers around 80 percent of all software engineering requirements, meaning that the majority of a machine’s software development can be carried out automatically.

Lenze will also demonstrate its ability to help customers embrace Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) by enabling capabilities such as remote monitoring and storing machine data in the cloud.

The ability to capture and analyse digital data is becoming vital in manufacturing. Building on its history as a component supplier, Lenze has increasingly become a provider of solutions that can acquire and analyse machinery operating data, and store it in the cloud.

Connectivity to the cloud will become a standard feature in the next few years. Lenze uses standardised protocols such as OPC UA or the MQTT standard in its automation portfolio, to guarantee that its components are futureproof.

Meet the people who can make it happen, let’s get together and talk over coffee. Foodex takes place on 16-18 April at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham. Visitors will find Lenze in Hall 3A, Stand T280.
