The EDAG Production Solutions is an expert in digitalization and networking in production systems. We help to create customized software and hardware products, intelligent sensor systems and high-performance smart factory solutions for horizontal and vertical networking, from ERP and MES to machines at plant level. Join our team and accompany our customers on the exciting road to digitalization and networking by developing, integrating and commissioning innovative digitalization solutions.
This is us: working together, growing together, creating new things together: EDAG connects people and the future - company and employees share the same vision. With us, you will be working on high-caliber tasks while following your own career path - at national or international level.
Robots play a key role in the automation and networking of processes in the smart factory, which Continental has also been working on for some time.
Continental's incoming goods department receives a wide variety of goods every day, unpacks and checks them manually and stores them on site until they are needed. Our contribution to the successful realization of the automatic sorting station for incoming goods was the software that was developed in-house.
Continental used to unpack, check, sort and book the parts all manually. As the diagram shows, our innovative software now uses various camera systems and automation to recognize, scan and sort parts using their barcodes.
A robot, controlled by various sorting algorithms, grabs the parts from the conveyor belt and places them in the correct box. A software program is used to record the data in SAP simultaneously.
By using a new technology called OPC UA (OPC Unified Architecture) for communication interfaces and the data exchange of machines, we succeeded in creating a standardized interface in the direction of PLC. REST was used for the interface between the ERP system and the software. → Read more
Virtual collaboration has not only been around since the pandemic, but for a long time before that - because the digital transformation has been here for some time. We go one decisive step further in this respect by offering virtual and augmented reality technologies for production engineering. So anyone can work on projects worldwide - from the sofa.
Just like in computer games, we operate with game characters - called avatars - in our industrial applications. In virtual reality, we take an active part in this digital world, and can become fully immersed in it. Virtual reality (VR) glasses are our entry ticket for immersion.
This technology enables us to perceive digital space - a production hall or laboratory for instance - visually and dimensionally, and in this way go anywhere we want. → Read more
We've all been there - if you need to go to the authorities to get a new ID card, for example, it can often take hours and hours. The solution to this could be a digital city hall, which allows people to save themselves the trip to the office and instead get things done from their living room. That's just one example of practical smart city use cases. As a partner to cities and municipalities in Europe, we take on designing and implementing everything from tailor-made, individual services through to fully integrated smart city platforms.
This diagram shows why we want to change cities sustainably:
Our aim is to take initial individual concepts and bring about a fully integrated solution for the urban ecosystem. We achieve this by means of customer focus, agility and a committed project-specific team. Collaboration is the key to success here. → Read more
Due to the increasing population density, it is necessary for the cities of the future to make them more environmentally friendly, more mobile, safer, more sustainable and simply more livable again with the help of digital technologies. Thanks to the great teamwork of several of our EDAG divisions, our CityBot was created, which is much more than a means of transport.
The CityBot is a networked, fully autonomous robotic vehicle powered by fuel cells. It is a mobility concept and has its own ecosystem. It can be individually configured for different tasks. → Read more
Highly automated driving, connectivity, eMobility, digitalisation, networking and mobile services – this is the future of automobility and we are helping to develop it. The Embedded Systems department makes a major contribution in this regard. For us, embedded means driving mobility forward and rethinking systems.
Our employees from this department take full responsibility for the development of electronic components and software from the concept phase until they are ready to go into production
