Lenze presents recipes for the processing and packaging industry

Lenze is serving up innovative drive and automation concepts for a virtual world on Stand J56 at PPMA Show in September. Demonstrations show how Virtual Reality can give engineers an insight to the operation of complex mechanics and software, leading to faster machine development. Visitors who participate in a demonstration can take away their personal VR viewer. Lenze engineers will also explain new options for data acquisition, analysis and storage of a machine's operating data in the Cloud along with remote support communication technologies for predictive maintenance.

Lenze is increasingly using Virtual Reality technology as an effective engineering and training tool. PPMA visitors can experience it themselves on the Lenze stand, and those that do so will be given a smartphone VR viewer to take away. The main potential of VR lies in making it easier to deal with the growing complexity of machine automation, by giving programmers and design engineers live experience of their applications through a digital twin. This term describes a digital virtual copy of the design that is put together in parallel with the real machine. Evaluating the digital twin before the machine design is fixed gives a sense of depth and scale that cannot be achieved with a 2D monitor. Design projects are speeded, safety can be enhanced through virtual simulation, and software such as the Lenze FAST modules can be fine-tuned for optimum performance.

Also on the Lenze stand, machine manufacturers can discover what Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) can do for their business model. Lenze offers here an easy way for OEMs to create a digital business of their own by adding value to machine data. Machine and systems engineers using automation technology from Lenze can now create online data services very easily with secure access to machine operating data in the cloud. Lenze has joined forces with the IoT specialist ei3 Corporation to offer a combination of remote analysis of machine performance and also remote predictive maintenance. David Krampe, Senior Marketing Manager at Lenze explains: "We want to enable our OEM customers to set up their own digital business quickly and easily, because it will strengthen their relationship with their own customers. It will add value and improve margins."

Lenze recognises that processing and packaging machinery needs to operate reliably, often 24 hours a day. Engineers on the stand can explain how intelligent service concepts can help to achieve that aim. Service modules allow Lenze experts to remotely analyse performance data and rectify errors online. New innovative techniques include the use of "smart glasses" to increase the quality level of the data transmitted, and barcode scanning of the product nameplate which reveals full hardware and firmware data, improving response times.

Visit the Lenze stand at J56 in Hall 5 to see the future for food and beverage machinery. Under the theme "Dinner is served", experienced engineers will present the best recipes for the processing and packaging industry based on 70 years' experience in drives and automation.
