Mechanical power transmission products are used to generate, transmit, control, and transform mechanical energy in industrial automation applications extending throughout every market segment. Solutions range from motors used to power equipment and motor controls used to regulate motor operation, direction, speed, and torque to electromagnetic brakes and clutches used to control power and rotary movement, couplings used to connect two pieces of rotating equipment for the purpose of transmitting power, and seals employed between rotating and stationary components or two moving components to retain lubricant and exclude contaminants.

Lenze is a leading global automation company that specializes in motion control solutions for the machine-building industry. Lenze creates powerful, high-quality mechatronic products ranging from hardware and software systems, including motors and motor controls, to digital transformation services, such as big data management, cloud solutions, and IIoT software — all of which are optimized for automated machinery and backed by more than 75 years of technical expertise and innovation. Lenze is also a big proponent and key enabler of Industry 4.0 technologies that help conserve resources, reduce CO2 emissions, and overcome challenges arising from the persistent shortage of skilled workers.
