PLANT ENGINEERING AND DESIGN – FROM THE IDEA TO THE MACHINE

Professional manufacture and production requires machinery and devices with which parts and products can be clamped, gripped and transported. Designing, constructing and providing these manufacturing facilities and manual devices is a core competence of EDAG PS.

The requirements for manufacturing facilities differ for every customer and are often very individual. We consistently adjust to the requirements of our customers. This already starts with the design systems and CAD guidelines to be applied, and of course incorporates the standard specifications of the respective companies. This goes to such lengths for automobile manufacturers that we have our own engineering teams for each customer. These teams know all the standards, guidelines and even the new developments, and have a wealth of experience gained from completed customer projects – a perfect basis for long-term, close collaboration.

In the design, our range of services extends from the digital implementation of the first idea up to the creation of detailed designs and manufacturing drawings. In the past, we have even been able to successfully implement complex engineering tasks on schedule, even when they require more than 200,000 hours.

MANUFACTURING FACILITY DESIGN – FROM DESIGN TO SERIES

From individual solutions to turnkey systems for the complete body-in-white: With our comprehensive expertise, our worldwide branches and our know-how and capacities for all common CAD systems, we are able to carry out simple as well as complex development projects. Supported CAD systems include:

  • CATIA

  • NX

  • Unigraphics

  • Fides

  • and others

Our range of services extends from the digital implementation of the first idea up to the creation of detailed designs and manufacturing drawings. Thanks to simultaneous engineering, we work closely with specialist areas such as body development, system planning, manufacturing simulation and tooling & assembly to optimally coordinate interfaces.

Our distinguishing feature in particular is our willingness to respond flexibly to the requirements of our clients. Our client team leaders are actually entrepreneurs within the company and work 100% client-oriented.

MOBILE DATA ACQUISITION – FROM COMPONENT TESTS TO BUILDING SURVEY

Using our modern measurement engineering, we digitize all components, surfaces and complete factories. These precise measurements create the efficient interface between the virtual object and the real object. We can even measure hard-to-reach areas and complex components without contact, regardless of size and material.

In the production process, real measured data can be compared directly with the specifications from the CAD system. This ensures secure production processes and provides a way to increase the quality of the product.

  • Measuring and adjusting the clamping fixtures

  • Photo-realistic 3D color scans

  • Digitization and reverse engineering

  • Component comparison and deformation measurement

  • Creation of sections (e.g. a hall layout)

  • Distance measurements (e.g. the height of a robot, width of a passage), even at inaccessible places

  • Digital load analysis of scanned objects

  • Simulation of CAD data in the real environment

  • Shape and location tolerance measurement in accordance with ISO 1101 and ANSI/ASME

  • Creation of meaningful reports

GENERATING AN OPTIMIZED PRODUCTION LINE USING 3D SCANNING. Even if it’s hard to believe, some production facilities have been optimized and rebuilt so often that there is no reliable documentation of the current state – even in large corporations. A company that wants to modernize such a facility needs up-to-date, precise data. Read more
