Lenze opens door to digitalisation at ITMA

07 June 2023

Lenze is using ITMA as a platform to showcase how textile machine providers can exploit the opportunities of digitalisation and be ready for future challenges with today’s solutions.

From energy-saving optimisation, to scalable portfolios with standardised interfaces, Lenze’s comprehensive and flexible automation solutions will be on display, alongside Lenze’s latest NUPANO cloud-based machine and app-management platform.

Flexible automation whatever the need 
With many years of experience in partnering with machine builders in the textile industry, Lenze has a depth of knowledge that enables the delivery of: 

·      Energy savings due to optimised dimensioning and DC coupling
·      Continuous feedback on product information on a machine’s performance, losses and energy consumption
·      Modern visualisation with database link for purposes of quality control and documentation
·      Flexible and modular machine design supported by a highly scalable portfolio that includes standardised interfaces and software frameworks 
·      Easy engineering solutions due to verified application templates (FAST) for web and yarn handling - Greater productivity due to fully automatic and fast adaptation when material is changed (servo inverters)

Maximising digitalisation potential NUPANO is Lenze’s intelligent solution that enables the digitalisation of machines in a straightforward way, helping machine manufacturers and end users to keep one step ahead of the competition. 

Thanks to being an open automation platform, any in-house or publicly available applications can be easily embedded into the machine and mastered through NUPANO’s integrated app management software, enabling the equipment to be securely and remotely updated and maintained in the field.

Lenze’s NUPANO opens new business opportunities
The economic success of textile machine builders is increasingly determined by their ability to differentiate themselves through additional digital offerings and new business models. The NUPANO cloud-based platform has been designed to enable mechanical engineering teams to embrace the benefits of digital innovation at the machine level. 

Lenze’s NUPANO
·      Eases IT and OT collaboration – at the machine development phase, NUPANO harmonises information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT), offering intelligent sharing functions for testing and validation

·      Enables app tailoring for competitive advantage – through open IT standards, such as Linux (with native Docker as container technology), NUPANO allows for the integration of publicly available apps and the integration, management, and protection of tailor-made machine-specific apps.

·      No customisation of open-source software is required for it to run on NUPANO and machine builders can work with any IT company to develop innovative, digital applications for their machines, independent of platform and hardware

·      Allows for security by design – the source code of the apps managed in NUPANO always remains with the user, allowing them the choice of making the app publicly available or not

·      Facilitates lifecycle management and revenue stream ownership – Each machine can be securely updated with new app versions throughout its life cycle in the field using NUPANO, while ensuring ownership of any associated digital revenue streams is retained by the OEM

Apps can also be tested together on the platform, and a release workflow and lifecycle strategy created for the entire machine and plant fleet.

Falk Vespermann, Global Segment Manager Textile at Lenze, comments: “Textiles machine builders are facing many challenges at present including pricing pressure, uncertainty around the dynamics of digitalisation and growing demand for more energy-efficient machines. 

"With over 75 years’ experience partnering with the textile industry in providing high-performing solutions, we are proud to be able to provide textile machine builders with new or retrofit solutions from cloud to drive shaft and from spinning to finishing. 

"At Lenze, our vision is to show OEMs the value of partnering with us; combining intelligent machines with intelligent services, to create new revenue streams and business models.”
