Accelerating your process – Digital Engineering by Lenze

Efficient end-to-end processes – from the initial idea to the commissioning and operation of the machine

In the age of Industry 4.0, machine builders and producers are facing great challenges. Digital transformation depends on the closer linkage of available data – not only during ongoing production, but already during the development of machines and systems. Digital Engineering von Lenze provides options and tools available for this that can be advantageously integrated into existing processes.

Accelerating your process – selected mechatronic solutions from Lenze​ ​

Mechatronic products and solutions are the important basis of every machine and automation project.​ ​

Thanks to open standards and interfaces, Lenze products ensure excellent interaction of the machine and machine modules beyond their system boundaries.​ ​

Here you will find examples of new highlights from the world of mechatronic drive solutions that will enable you to design your tasks and processes to be efficient right from the start.

Asset Administration Shell

Heading towards Industry 4.0

The Asset Administration Shell (AAS) is not just a theoretical concept, but a genuine support in industrial automation.

  • The AAS collects the relevant data for each asset, e.g. descriptions of the mechanical-electrical properties, documentation and certificates, software, behavioral description
  • This information pool serves as a basis for applications within the framework of Industry 4.0 and must follow standards
  • There is no Industry 4.0 without AAS! The consistent use of data is made possible by using Lenze EASY System Designer

Condition Monitoring

Delivers real-time condition monitoring

Collecting and interpreting the available data is already a sound way of monitoring the condition of machines. This requires a deeper understanding of the machines and processes so as to generate meaningful information from the "bare" data. Analyses based on Machine Learning (ML) and AI can help identify anomalies faster.

  • Model-based or data-based? There are two options for optimal results
  • Here the data is evaluated
  • Without additional sensor technology! When the drive becomes a sensor, you can obtain extensive information about the "state of health" of machines and plants without the need for any additional, costly sensor technology

Lenze Automation Platform

The right system solution for any machine

Individualization, digitalization and resource gaps characterize the market environment in the mechanical engineering sector. Future-proof system solutions for your machine or plant can assist you to master these challenges and secure your competitive advantages in the long term.

  • Scalability supports modular machine concepts and represents a sound investment.
  • Connectivity makes machine integration easy
  • Reusable software modules reduce the time and effort spent on development
  • Openness creates flexibility and greater leeway for decision-making
  • Integrated safety functions provide protection from accidents and interrupted production
  • IT meets OT: the new generation of controllers meets the increasing requirements of Industry 4.0

Modern machine visualisation

Quite simply with our web-based solution

Trends from the consumer market such as responsive design and gesture control are increasingly influencing machine visualisation. Technically driven developments were yesterday: Today's design philosophy focuses on user-friendliness.

For machine builders, this means implementing attractive and easy-to-use visualisation in their machines, enabling an optimal "user experience" and thus ensuring smooth human-machine interaction and safe operation.

Lenze supports the realisation of user-centred visualisation solutions with a future-proof web-based visualisation offer. The core elements are the consistent use of web-based client-server architectures, parameterisation of the displayed interfaces and a library of prepared visualisation elements designed according to usability principles.

Asset Management

Creating a detailed digital record of devices and components and managing them digitally – the basis for the sustainably secure operation of machines and system

The avoidance of unplanned machine downtimes and production losses is a critical point in order to counteract ever increasing cost pressure. Data on the installed equipment base can contribute to overall cost reduction.

  • ​ Fast and easy access to information relevant for service
  • Fewer processing errors thanks to a standardised database
  • Faster identification and elimination of faults
  • Secure backup of the machine configuration and firmware
  • Faster replacement of defective devices
  • Stocking of spare parts according to specific needs
  • Increased OEE and reduced process costs in service

Decentralized inverter of the i500 series​

With standard IO-Link

​ With its high IP 66 and NEMA 4X outdoor protection rating, i550 protec is well equipped for demanding applications. Whether dusty or wet, it can handle it all with ease. Its housing provides excellent protection for the technology inside.

​​ ​ ​The i500 series decentralized inverter has the same DNA as the control cabinet inverter, and identical features such as modularity, scalability, compact design and good usability make it easy and intuitive to use.

​​ ​ ​It is the first decentralized inverter on the market with standard IO-Link, thus facilitating series commissioning.​​ ​

The i550 protec is available from 0.37 to 11 kW. (expansion to 75kW planned).​

Conveying technology that pays off​

A solution with the Lenze Smart Motor 

Bring your horizontal conveyor technology up to date with the Lenze Smart motor and replace the contactor and worm gear.

​The Smart Conveyors Calculator shows you how this pays off in just a few steps. The calculation quickly makes it transparent how you can save on engineering effort, cables, control cabinet space and many other points and how much you can save. ​​

In our experience, the savings are usually several thousand euros per project! ​ ​

Are you curious? ​
Then you can already estimate your possible savings. 

Ecodesign Directive for a Green Europe​​​

We have answers to your questions and the right product

The countdown to the introduction of the new Ecodesign Directive is running. If you sell machines with electric motors within Europe, they must meet the higher energy efficiency requirements from July 1, 2021. This offers you the opportunity to optimize the energy balance of your machine in the long term.​​ ​

With our know-how and the new energy-efficient m550 motors, we can provide you with the best possible support for the individual requirements of your conversion! ​
