With the aid of robotics, automation and application technology, simulation techniques (e.g. digital twin and virtual commissioning) as well as modern process and control technology, we help you to automate, optimise and validate your production sequences - even with complex production processes. Our engineering package includes all mechanical, mechatronic and electrical components.
In robotics, we have been providing defining impetus for the workplace of the future for many years, e.g. in the realisation of new fields of application such as human-robot collaboration (HRC). We work independently of various robot manufacturers, which allows us to deliver cost-optimised results for our customers.
Automation is the art of manufacturing products with minimal manual intervention, high quality and low costs. In this regard, all maintenance groups should be perfectly coordinated. We achieve this high level of automation by using state-of-the-art, innovative tools, experience and methods from the digital factory.
Principal areas of automation:
We take responsibility for electrical design including the PLC and robot programming for your systems according to your specifications. We guarantee high quality through close networking with mechanical engineering. This includes:
Virtual commissioning is the ideal quality assurance for the mechatronic components and the production process. We want you to save valuable time in the project as well as modification costs. With the help of suitable kinematic and behaviour models of your plant, the simulation of material flow computers and by connecting to the ERP, we can carry out the programming and first tests, including employee training on the virtual model, long before "steel and iron" create reality on site, which is then expensive to change.

The close integration of mechanical and electrical processes in combination with digital methods is an important basis for the creation of a smart factory and its operation with the possibilities of Industry 4.0. Here we focus on:
Robotics includes the design, control and operation of robots and thus acts as an important link between engineering and implementation. It combines the virtual with the real world. With robotics, we ensure that the requirements of your production plant are met. It is integrated in all engineering phases. For this purpose, our employees create 3D simulation cells in which the planning and design concepts are implemented in line with process requirements.
As a manufacturer-independent provider, we have acquired extensive knowledge of robots over the years, especially in programming and control.
The supported systems include:
In material processing, especially when joining workpieces, subjects such as lightweight design, material mix, energy and resource efficiency play an important role and place high demands on production plants. Gluing and spot welding are often no longer sufficient. We have extensive knowledge that allows us to bring new technologies to series production maturity.
Automated systems require the right process and control technology. We are happy to undertake the conceptual design, planning and implementation of new control technology, and for the migration or functional expansion of existing plant.
At EDAG, automation engineers work hand in hand with software developers to plan and implement integrated control concepts. We are experts in production control systems such as SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and MES (Manufacturing Execution System), which read out and process the data from the production equipment controls. We also link these to ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems, which control and process orders at the commercial level.
All companies benefit from our extensive knowledge of processes, IT and controls in diverse systems in different fields of application.
