Pack Expo - Lenze Motion Control Experts Present on Innovation Stage at PACK EXPO Las Vegas

EASY Packaging Machine Automation presentation explores strategies to simplify motion control and robotics

Uxbridge, MA - July 30, 2015 - Lenze, a global manufacturer of electrical and mechanical drives, motion control and automation technology, announced today that it will present on the Innovation Stage at PACK EXPO Las Vegas on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 at 11:00 A.M.


Lenze executives Doug Burns and Daniel Repp will focus on new software developments that can dramatically reduce machine development time and simplify the programming of motion control and robotic systems. Their presentation, titled Innovation for EASY Packaging Machine Automation, explores strategies for using automation software tools, which have advanced significantly. With robots becoming increasingly common in the packaging industry, machine builders face the challenges of integrating their control systems, or individual kinematics, into the entire automation system. The use of standardized, reusable software modules is a straightforward approach to easy configuration of robotic movement and seamless integration with machine control functions.

"Doug and Daniel are seasoned leaders in the packaging automation community. We are delighted they have the opportunity to present at the Innovation Stage at PACK EXPO Las Vegas," said Deb Kling, director, commercial marketing, Lenze. "Their insights on the use of standardized, re-usable software modules will help machine builders learn how to increase machine performance, functionality and energy efficiency. Lenze gives customers the results they need to speed time-to-market and truly enhance machine value."

More than 30,000 attendees and 1,800 exhibiting companies are expected to attend PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015, being held September 28-30, 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada. The world's largest packaging and processing event in 2015, PACK EXPO Las Vegas will bring together decision makers from a wide variety of industries and across the supply chain.
