Lenze Americas is pleased to announce product advances in the packaging industry.
Lenze has been producing electronic and mechanical drives for over 60 years and continues to improve as the market demands.
Lenze beveled gears allow OEMs to save energy, improve efficiency and run faster. “OEMs using a worm gear are now converting to Lenze beveled gears because they are simply more efficient,” said Chuck Edwards, president of Lenze Americas. “There are also significant cost savings due to the scalability of the motors as OEMs can downsize if desired.” OEMs using planetary gear boxes are also taking advantage of Lenze L-Force Gearmotors and converting to helical gears. In most applications there is adequate backlash, they run quieter and they are less expensive.
Geared specifically for the packaging industry are the robust IP65 wash down VFD drives, available in stainless steal or polycarbonate plastic. These drives are available in a package that mounts directly into the motor, eliminating panel space, cables, cost and maintenance time. Labeling customers can also choose from using synchronous or asynchronous motors with registration applications.
Lenze Americas’ products are utilized in a multitude of packaging applications, including: shrink wrapping plus form-fit-seal, foil pouch filling and labeling machines. Customers include Extreme Packaging, Multi-Pak and SA Power (Nederburg Vineyard).
