Lenze FAST - Application framework with a large toolbox

For efficient software engineering

Increasing digitalization enables innovative, connected software solutions and operating concepts. Thus, an efficient engineering process is increasingly becoming the key to success in software-driven innovations.

With Lenze FAST, our ready-to-use software engineering modules, you can build on an existing but flexible and easily expandable basic framework for the machine application. In the concept phase, the FAST architecture helps you quickly arrive at your own robust and expandable solutions. And: Due to the large toolbox and the extensive FAST services, e.g. for visualization, user or recipe handling, the amount of code that has to be generated by the user is reduced enormously. Particularly valuable is the integrated Lenze engineering tool chain, which optimally prepares for commissioning at an early stage.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Access to our know-how that has grown and been tried and tested over many years
  • A software architecture that grows with the customer, with a comprehensive and mature application toolbox.
  • All in all, this reduces software development times, increases the speed of innovation and lowers software development and life cycle costs.

New: Application Software Toolbox expanded to a Framework

We have expanded our proven software modules into the Machine Framework.
At the heart of the FAST framework is a service-oriented software architecture that even better meets the current requirements for machines in the direction of visualization, IIoT and cloud. The framework ensures interoperability with an OPC UA DI interface.
This enables the successive docking of beneficial services.

One example of this is Lenze's asset and error management, in which optimized access to asset information has been supplemented
with automated error management.​

Modular software architecture

With the Lenze FAST application software toolbox, you achieve modularization of machine functions and standardization of interfaces, which ultimately reduces the time, cost and complexity of software engineering.

Costs and complexity under control

Pre-tested, documented and reusable software modules lead to better quality and optimised resource management. This means you can easily reuse, expand and maintain software modules – efficiently, reliably and safely. In addition, standards such as PLCopen ensure the openness of our Lenze system.

The Lenze FAST application software toolbox includes a wide range of standard technology software modules, application templates for efficient programming of motion, logic and OEM-specific modules.​

Modular programming

By using our software engineering solutions automation specialists can work the way they are used to – with a basic architecture.
The functions are encapsulated in the individual modules.

Basic Motion

Implementation of basic motion functions like velocity or position movements of an axis.

Central and decentralized

Enables the standard positioning and sequence control of an axis under a Lenze or third-party control. The motion control of a speed control, positioning, table positioning or an electronic gear is carried out either in the control or on the drive.

Synchronization and Camming

Implement the synchronization of various axis movements to realize cross sealing, cross section, electronic gear and electronic cam control of axes.


Implement applications like winder dancer position, tension or speed control, and distribution of a material across winding width.

Integrated Robotics

Realize coordinated axes control movements, up to 6 degrees of freedom on Portal, 2D/3D/4D/5D Delta, Scara kinematics, to perform pick and place applications on static positions or conveyors.

Storage & Retrieval

Automated storage and retrieval systems perform vertical and horizontal movements of travel units with hoists in inventory management systems used in manufacturing facilities, distribution centers and warehouses.
