Adaptable System Integrator

Pharmaceutical machines and systems are expensive, long-term investments that often require extensive validation in their combined operations.

The challenge of modernization often lies in replacing sub-systems while retaining proven existing technology and maintaining regulatory compliance.

Eckelmann is the ideal partner for such complex projects. As a skilled, independent system integrator for hardware and software, Eckelmann can precisely adapt between existing and new systems.

Horizontal and Vertical Coverage

Eckelmann automation solutions span from the interface to the ERP system (connection to corporate IT) through all levels of automation down to the sensor/actuator level.

When Eckelmann engineers integrate IT technology and automation technology, they unlock the enormous potentials of Industry 4.0: Key performance indicator formation and analysis aim at efficiency improvement, high system availability, planned service, and reduced personnel and expert deployment. Additionally, the simulation of test runs and commissioning on the digital twin saves time, travel costs, and engineering hours.
