Every customers' machine is different so our approach is flexible and we bring in people with the right expertise, from elsewhere in the Lenze Group if needed.

  • Motion Centric Automation - for most industrial machinery the motors, drives and automation are the key to performance, efficiency and build costs.  We offer a choice of controller-based and drive-based automation solutions that can provide the optimum for your needs.
  • Easy Engineering -  Lenze is your partner from the initial idea through to operation in the field, see the five phases in machine construction described under 'About Lenze'.  At each stage we strive to make your task easier, saving time and costs.  Product selection is 'Rightsized' based on the expertise of our Engineers and powerful selection software.  This gives you reduced purchase cost, increased performance, faster installation, smaller sizes and lower energy consumption.
