Courtesy: Lenze AmericasLenze Americas' FAST application template and ready-made standard software modules is designed to handle a majority of the software engineering requirements for machine modules.

The FAST tool provides a complete range of standard software modules for positioning, registration, cam profiling, multi-conveyor coordination and other synchronized motion control tasks, including modules for feeding, unwinding, sealing, cross-sealing and discharging applications. The pre-configured software modules are designed to significantly expedite machine programming.

The FAST application template comes equipped with all of the necessary structures for standardizing software, so users can more quickly develop machine modules.  This allows a significant reduction in engineering and software development time and expense, which more companies are demanding. The template includes important structures for key functions, including switching over machine states, error handling and communication interfaces.

Machine motion and control functions are contained in individual, autonomous modules which can be selected, exchanged and tested completely independently.  Software modules created using the application template can be assembled with minimal effort to create complete and reusable systems. Repeat use of tested modules on new machine iterations further reduces errors and drives down cost.
