Lenze UK prepared with new facilities

05 August 2021

Lenze UK has moved from its previous premises and is ready for the next step in Automation & Digitisation in its new Bedfordshire office.

During the Covid period, Lenze focused even more on its partnership for industrial automation industries. With a strengthened sales force in automation and digitisation, the company is ready for the next chapter in assisting OEMs to use data from increasingly intelligent systems.   

Nowadays when we talk about automation platforms, we can no longer associate a single brand name to an entire automation platform. Machine automation companies must provide a system that is open, suitable for collecting data and, with the help of algorithms, doing the right things with that data, be that decreasing costs by improving machine performance for example, or allowing an entry into a totally new business model. Therefore, in the control platform that Lenze provides "the world is represented in terms of IT and OT", according to Eric van den Broek, Managing Director of Lenze in UK and Benelux.   

Data scientists from Lenze act as sparring partner to the client. What do you want? Where are you now? Where do you want to be in five years? What can you do with collected data? With predictive maintenance you could perhaps look at the lifespan of a motor: how long can it run for or when do the bearings need to be replaced. Of course that is important, but why stop there? Without adding additional sensors, Lenze can look much further into the entire drive chain. What is attached to the motor, what is being driven? It could, for example, use self-learning algorithms to monitor the tension of a timing belt, and in turn create an email alert for a maintenance crew. “These kinds of solutions provide much greater added value for the customer,” says Van den Broek. With fewer sensors, a machine builder also needs fewer inputs for the control system and therefore less cabling. 

The international team in Bedford is well equipped and open to talk about new automation challenges. So, give Lenze a call, drop in to see the new office and grab a coffee.
