Technology Advisory

INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR TECHNICAL CHALLENGES

In a market that is currently reinventing itself, we work with you to develop solutions that will maintain your competitive position and help to shape the mobility of the future. Do you have a product idea and would like to know under what conditions you might be able to put it to profitable use? As a supplier, do you plan to enter the automotive market, or strengthen your position with a product modification? Or do you want to increase your profitability and optimise your processes? Our independent technology advisory experts can provide you with customised, interactive and innovative advice.

Your added value is our all-round product and process know-how. From the initial situation and trend analysis and the generation of ideas, we advise and assist you throughout the entire development process.  We can also help you with the conception of a possible demonstrator, through to marketing support and product lifecycle management (after sales).

ADDED VALUE THROUGH PRODUCT AND PROCESS KNOW-HOW

Creating Knowledge

Generating Potential

Realizing Success

SUCCESSFUL TRANSFER OF EXPERTISE FROM THE AUTOMOTIVE DOMAIN

As part of the EDAG Group, our focus is clearly on automotive and mobility. Used as we are to meeting extremely high standards in terms of processes, general conditions and quality, we have long been successfully transferring these skills to other applications. We bridge the gap between your strategic decisions and the industrial implementation of your products and services.

Based on our broad customer expertise, we are happy to put on your glasses for this. We also keep the above-mentioned requirements in mind and can therefore deliver significant added value for suppliers, industries with complex products and automotive OEMs.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

„The project with EDAG was very exciting and witty.  The words and ideas of the leading experts in each field were beyond our reach. 

We are convinced that it was the best choice as a partner for our company looking for growth opportunities in a changing era.“ 

 

Toshiharu Kusumoto, Manager Business innovation group
TOYOBO CO., LTD.

„Together with EDAG, Kamax has identified components that can be optimised with the "KXtreme" screw. For example, the engineers have redesigned a wheel carrier so that it is now 400 g lighter.
 

These advantages can be realised if the use of ultra-high-strength fasteners is considered at a very early stage of the design. Only then is it possible to use the potential degrees of freedom to achieve significant weight savings. In future, ultra-high-strength fasteners can play an important role in achieving lightweight construction goals.“

 

Mario Braun, Vice President Product Management
KAMAX Automotive

„As a mid-sized manufacturing company, our product is the actual core competence. However, to be able to manufacture this at a high degree of automation and using the latest production techniques, we needed a lot of different specialists. We can’t afford this and are therefore happy to have found all of this at EDAG PS. My manufacturing engineers are therefore always up to date and have found the right sparring partner in EDAG PS, no matter what technology is required.“

 

Udo Jung, CEO
TROX GmbH

„EDAG has carried out a market analysis and an evaluation of market entries for our new technology BILCUT® (high speed laser blanking straight from the coil), in this way putting the business case assessment on an up-to-date data basis. As a result, it was possible for the market potential to be validly defined and a plausible basis for decision making created.“
