Etteplan automation and robotics service

Automation and Robotics

Etteplan’s automation engineering competence covers machine, process, plant, vehicular and transportation automation, as well as traffic control and tunnel automation systems. We have developed automation solutions, for example, for the virtual commissioning and simulation of machinery, production lines and processes. Our customers also rely on Etteplan’s competence in high-performance remote-controlled automation system engineering. At the core of Etteplan’s automation engineering know-how is machine and process control, as well as robotics applications and simulations. 

Key Benefits
Short lead times

Our experts are proficient in the latest automation systems, from various programmable logic controller systems (PLC) to distributed control systems (DCS) and quality control systems (QCS). Our instrumentation and automation engineering services include the design of manufacturing control systems, and process and field instrumentation. We also offer installation supervision and commissioning services. 

We have designed and implemented several robotics and production line solutions to increase the scalability and quality of the manufacturing process. 

Our services in virtual commissioning 

Testing highly automated production lines and control systems prior to commissioning without proper simulation often leads to costly corrective design configurations and, in turn, delayed launch schedules. 

We design virtual commissioning models for our customers’ industrial machinery to ensure the proper and safe functioning of machines and production lines before they are actually commissioned. Virtual commissioning helps shorten planning and commissioning lead times and save costs. Watch the video for an example of a virtual commissioning model. 

Our customers in automation include Outotec, Valmet, Wärtsilä, Nordkalk, Pilkington, Nextrom and the wastewater plant of the City of Mariehamn.
