Intended for | modernisation
For more than 25 years, we have been a source of ideas for modernising and looking after our customers’ systems, so that they can focus on their core business, the actual production process. We are always courageous enough to think outside the box and offer you innovative power which is based on many years of systems and technology expertise. By taking a holistic view of the machine, we offer you tailor-made solutions for your production plant in the areas of mechanics, electrical engineering, automation and drive technology, control technology and machine safety. Everything from a single source.
“Nobody knows more about the manufacture of your products, i.e. the procedures and processes in your production, than you do. We are the partner with the necessary technical understanding of your production facilities. Through intensive, partnership-based consulting, we ensure that your plant modernization project as a whole meets your requirements”.
Klaus Philipp, Head of the Industry Modernisation division
Would you like to increase the
- performance and
- the ease of use of your system, while also reducing your operating costs?
Then we are exactly the right partner for you. From systems equipment and control through to operating concepts, formula management and data logging through to energy- and data management – we identify how all the relevant systems are interlinked and close the gaps between IT and system functionality. This is how innovative solutions are created for optimal production processes for your machines.
Good advice | for improved competitiveness
Is your process system delivering as much as it can? Is it perfectly linked up to the available infrastructure? Is it uniformly structured?
Our concepts make your systems more competitive when it comes to product quality and quantity, energy efficiency or operating costs. We also create the necessary interfaces for expedient data integration. As a result, financial results are improved, increasing competitiveness.
Our engineers of various disciplines contribute their expertise. Even if several business fields and remits are involved, you will always have a specific point of contact for all your concerns, who will take over all coordination and alignment tasks both internally and externally.

- Detailed proposal
- Adherence to deadlines
Our services | to add to your productivity
Our origins lie in engineering and constructing large calendar lines. That’s why we have extensive expertise in manufacturing, specifically in the plastics industry. We know the exact processes behind the production of calendared films and technical textiles such as carbon mats, laminates and artificial leather.
Our developed pool of knowledge also includes upstream and downstream systems such as mixers, kneaders, winders, laminating systems, cutters etc. For our clients, this means: a high level of technical expertise to increase availability and flexibility as well as an increase in production throughput while using fewer resources and less energy.
For many years, we have been a SIEMENS solution partner, Wonderware system integrator and experts in machine safety. This gives us the expertise, where necessary, to close the gaps between IT and system functionality. The result is a plant which is operated, controlled and managed in a uniform manner.

In order to create a sustainable and future-proof solution for you, we consider systems and factors which go beyond the production facility itself in the course of the project. According to your requirements, we can also include infrastructure topics involving buildings and energy.
We calculate the actual potential of your system and implement the resulting measures in a technically-expert and timely manner.
- Increasing availability and flexibility
- More intelligent business operations with shorter set-up times
- Increasing production throughput by up to 50% with significantly reduced resources and energy input
- Reduction of output quantity through shorter start-up and shut-down cycles
At LAE, procedural competencies meet proven automation expertise, in order to obtain the right data, figures, facts and parameters from a system or cluster of systems. This information forms the basis for predominantly maintenance-free, reliable operation:
- Maintenance guidelines for cyclically planned maintenance tasks
- Protection against incorrect operation and inadmissible operating conditions
- Preventative monitoring
- Preventative maintenance
We create the interfaces between management, production and quality assurance and make it possible to gather and use operating and production data.
- Real-time product monitoring
- Process-optimised control and drive technology
- Formula-oriented production at various locations as a result of a high level of automation and the consistent implementation of the control functions
In addition to ensuring safe machinery operation and personal safety, the way in which we operate is also characterised by the responsible use of natural resources.
- Visually-supported operating concepts for minimal staffing requirements
- Overlays, sensor-based control structures to minimise observation processes
- Safety experts for your machine safety
- EU machinery directive CE
Our | areas of application
There is enormous potential in every existing system! And every system can be upgraded to a level of technology which means that it can be operated economically and reliably as well as safely on a long-term basis. This is the challenge that spurs us on day after day!
We modernise and optimise converting machines to refine web-shaped materials. These include:
- Coating machines
- Film-coating machines
- Laminating machines
- Embossing machines
We have extensive expertise concerning the special requirements of drive technology of rotogravure printing works with and without continuous pattern repetition. For this purpose, we use Siemens Sinamics and Simotion technologies.
