Additionally, EDAG combines expert knowledge with the latest lighweight construction material technology trends. We offer the support, advice and expertise in all phases of your project, from concept and planning, to execution, and through the start of production.
The art of vehicle packaging relies on positioning the components and modules in the vehicle to meet the needs of the customer and the occupants. Logically arranging the components to ensure the geometrical and occupants functional requirements are met or exceeded.
Today’s vehicles have intelligent module structures that make it possible to provide the highest number of vehicle varients, with the least amount of complexity.
New materials, new steel and new aluminum grades, and design constructions – while embracing many different challenges, and technologies that have had their effect on a vehicles body in white.
EDAG aims to optimize the product properties while minimizing the cost and weight. EDAG’s task is to ensure that their are no conflicts between these new requirements and quality standards. Subsequently, considering the requirements of the production process and any limitations. EDAG refers to this as production-optimized development.
Over the years, door, lid and gate systems have developed into highly complex modules.
The aim at EDAG is to meet not only the technical, but also the ergonomic and legal requirements of the module.
First time quality is assured by close attention to the joints, and assuring technical feasibility is implemented during the design validation phase.
The customer’s comfort plays a central role in the development of interior systems and components.
The vehicle needs to feel right as soon as the customer enters the vehicle.
Experiencing a feeling that is typical for that brand of vehicle and clearly distinguising it from other brands. At EDAG, we know what to do to ensure that the first impression is positive.
First impressions also apply to the Exterior where the outward appearance presented by a vehicle must conform to the values typical of the brand.
The same also applies to the development of the add-on parts, spoilers, panels, windows, glass, roof systems or complete modules, e.g bumper/facia systems, we are the engineering specialists for exterior trim.
In addition, working within a network of OEM’s, suppliers and tool makers, we also guarantee active and passive safety requirements, for passenger and pedestrian protection.
