Much has happened since then. Meanwhile, Lenord + Bauer has about 260 employees throughout the world.
For more than 50 years, the name Lenord + Bauer has stood for the automation of industrial motion sequences. The company’s product range consists of magnetic sensors for the measurement of rotational and linear movements, as well as intelligent control and drive systems.
A majority of the products marketed by Lenord + Bauer are customer-specific solutions. The company deliberately focuses on the Ruhr location, a high level of vertical integration, and the detailed industry knowledge of long-time employees. Thus, customer-specific product adaptations can be much faster implemented than when relying on production or development facilities abroad.
Due to the robust design and specific technologies chosen, the controls and magnetic sensors withstand even the toughest environmental conditions such as shock, vibration, condensation, and temperature fluctuations. Thus, typical applications are rail vehicles, wind turbines, mobile machines, as well as marine and offshore applications. The precise measurement data provided by the high-resolution Lenord + Bauer sensors are appreciated by machine tool manufacturers.
Lenord + Bauer has gained another foothold in 2010 by adding a mechatronic system solution to its product range: The PowerDRIVE-System an intelligent positioning system that fully automates feed axes in modern production plants, aligning them with 100% repeat accuracy.
