From calendering unit construction to industrial specialists

Our services giving you more productivity

We started out in engineering and the construction of large film calendering systems – from the development stage and the design stage right through to commissioning and maintenance.

That’s why we have extensive expertise in manufacturing, specifically in the plastics industry.

In this industry, we are extremely familiar with the automation of production processes behind the production of calenderised films, technical textiles and other web materials such as carbon fibre, artificial leather, printed or embossed films and laminated sheets. And our operating environment is continually expanding armed with this information and thanks to our reliability, our long-standing collaboration with our customers and the trust they put in us. Nowadays, we also control, automate and integrate upstream and downstream systems such as mixers, extruders, kneaders, winders and other machines, and we also integrate them into higher-level systems. With our expertise, we bridge the gap between IT and production, providing the right interfaces to guarantee the integration of your machine pool into your company’s organisation. This results in an innovative machine pool with uniform operation, control and management.


Digitalisation of your industrial system

Turning your data into “smart data”

LAE offers you the expertise of an integral engineering provider following a holistic approach.

We will gladly provide you with support right from the pre-planning (conceptual) phase, working with you to take into account all of the key issues relating to system planning before the execution phase begins. Our employees provide support with issues including 3D hall planning, potential requirements regarding media supply, Ex protection, software or network and automation concepts. At LAE, every project starts with the modelling and structuring of the machine or production system, which serves as a basis for the engineering process. This allows us to guarantee optimal data quality with a high level of transparency, allowing for simple and high-quality data analysis. Our expertise in data technology, IT and server-based systems mean that you are guaranteed the necessary security and flexibility for a digital future. Not only do we understand your system, we also integrate it into your infrastructure starting from the sensor and actuator right through to MES/ERP.
