Lenze 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.
