Lenze Receives Leadership in Engineering Award

Design World magazine participants select Lenze for mechatronics solutions

UXBRIDGE, MA - March 5, 2015 - Lenze, a leading global manufacturer of electrical and mechanical drives, motion control and automation technology, has been recognized by Design World magazine with a Leadership in Engineering award. The 2014 award recipients were chosen based on selections from Design World readers.


"We're proud to be recognized for our expertise in mechatronics - Lenze's mechatronic approach has resulted in machines and systems that allow our customers to address operational needs while being easier to integrate and maintain," said Deb Kling, director of commercial marketing, Lenze.

The term mechatronic refers to automation devices that combine mechanical, electrical and software technologies. By streamlining the design process, mechatronics translates to better designs with lower total cost of ownership, from implementation to commissioning to maintenance, eliminating traditional engineering silos to reduce inefficiencies.

Design World offers an annual Leadership in Engineering industry recognition program to acknowledge engineering leadership across several disciplines. Winners of the Leadership in Engineering award were selected by readers that voted for their favorite automation supplier in a variety of categories throughout January to October 2014.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
