The easier way to Industry 4.0: Greater functionality, less complexity


t this year’s Hannover Fair, Lenze presented its new controller generation, a configurable production line, and using a dynamic double-delta robot as


an example shows how development projects can be realised in record time through simulation. Lenze proves that digital transformation is not necessarily making mechanical engineering more complicated. With the right tools and suitable concepts, even intuitive automation is possible. More functions, more flexibility and more intelligence: complexity and the


requirements placed in automation are increasing. To make complexity manageable, the machine automation specialist offers a consistent, open automation platform comprising hardware, software and ‘brainware’. The centerpiece of the Lenze automation platform is a scalable control system portfolio, including cabinet controllers and panel PCs for the realisation of small machines up to complex machinery and systems. In Hannover, Lenze presented the next generation of its cabinet controllers, the c500 series. It uses


CPU (Central Processing Unit). This makes the c500 series ideal for tasks that place maximum demands on computing power. One example is the evolution of printing presses: they place high demands on timing for synchronising multipule axis, and they also require maximum precision. This is no problem for the new generation of controllers – it always delivers sufficient performance,


even for existing applications which continue to grow as part of Industry 4.0 and require extra computing power. The digitalisation of automation is about to enter a new phase: not only more and more devices,


more options, more complexity – but also greater integration and automation in the development stage, which will result in easier handling. The benefits that Industry 4.0 offer users were sometimes expensive acquisitions within mechanical engineering. Lenze has taken up the cause of reversing this development. With its current systems and products, sophisticated tools and revolutionary concepts, the specialist for machine automation proves that digitalisation – when put to the right use – is of particular benefit to OEMs and system integrators.
