We make automation intuitive.

Lenze is leading the way.

We make automation as easy and efficient as possible.

That was it: Hanover Fair 2019!

Thanks you all for your visit. We are looking forward to see you next year at Hanover Fair 2020!

Have a look at and get some impressions of the week:


The motto of this year’s Hannover Messe – Home of Industrial Pioneers – has long been a maxim that inspires the way our company works.

We know that the development, construction and management of machines are becoming ever more complex and challenging.

That is why we are providing advanced solutions now, today, with INTUITIVE AUTOMATION.

  • Based on good partnership: Together we are thinking ahead and seize the opportunities of the digital transformation.
  • Based on good engineering: End-to-end engineering process is key to efficiently develop machines for the smart factory.
  • Now: We are already combining hardware, software and brainware to create immediately available solutions.

Automation goes blue.

Servo inverter i950

The new servo inverter i950: more than just a servo

The new i950 combines modern servo technology with the automation of the system.

In addition to outstanding servo characteristics, the i950 implements six technology applications (TA):

  • TA Speed Control
  • TA Synchronism with Mark Correction
  • TA Table Positioning
  • TA Winder with Dancer Position Control
  • TA Electronic Gearbox
  • TA Winder with Torque Control

This not only saves time, it also saves effort and costs.

DC-INDUSTRIE joint stand

Energy transition meets Industrie 4.0

Hall 12, Stand C57

Here we use a model system to show you why direct current (DC) is seen as a key technology for the integration of energy storage systems and sources of regenerative energy in production processes, and what benefits there are for you as a machine manufacturer and plant operator in the open approach that we support.


DC-INDUSTRIE is a joint project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, and its aim is to reshape the energy supply of industrial plants by using a smart, open DC network and to digitalise the industrial energy supply architecture. Along with Lenze, 20 other industrial companies, four research institutes and the ZVEI are jointly working on this energy system of the future.

"it's OWL" joint stand

From machine learning and big data to the digital twin

Hall 16, Stand A04

Using materials-handling applications from intralogistics, we show how cloud-based services and machine learning processes can make machine maintenance easier, increase machine availability, and minimise the cost of maintenance and repair.
