Safety, stability and


all a question of having

the right control system.

We here at EMIS are experts in

automated processes that ceaselessly

propel technical progress forwards.


We at EMIS are experienced experts in all aspects of automation. We are always delighted to place our competence at your service as your project and development partner, in any of the following areas: industrial production and machining processes, safety-related or potentially explosive areas, the optimisation of logistics links in the supply chain or the transport of people. Our leading position in this field is demonstrated by a great many successful projects.

We cover the entire range of topics: from analysis to planning processes through to implementation, commissioning, servicing and maintenance. Our portfolio of services covers all aspects: layout and infrastructure, engineering and development, intelligent control and software solutions, bespoke and volume production of switch cabinets, installation and assembly as well as operation, inspection and maintenance. It is of central importance to us that our solutions are safe and have enduring future prospects. With EMIS today, you are already thinking of tomorrow. And of the day after tomorrow.

Satisfied customers are the greatest affirmation we can have for what we do.

“Thanks to the great professional advice we received from EMIS, we were able to reduce the retooling time of our system by almost 90%”.

Here at EMIS, project management is an all-inclusive task - we view ourselves as fixers and doers and this ensures that our customers have as little to attend to themselves as possible. It all begins when an order is placed: we accompany each customer with their definition of requirements, the selection of components, the definition of milestones and deadlines, and of course with the implementation of the entire project. In this way, EMIS assumes project responsibility for its services. This is of particular importance in areas where great uncertainty may exist in some areas (e.g. control units for areas at risk of explosion). We honour our deadline commitments and ensure that each project runs smoothly. We arrange for the commissioning and acceptance tests for our customers to be performed by the relevant authorities or test institutions (e.g. TÜV).
You can depend upon EMIS in every respect - which includes costs, deadlines and quality. In particular when the requirements get difficult or when sudden changes are made, we are there to support you with experienced project managers and a great capacity for flexibility. With our many years of experience in the most challenging areas of automation technology, we are able to respond to new challenges quickly and efficiently. We have many years of experience in working with operatives and test authorities right around the globe. Our project managers prepare the procedures for high-performance processes which helps to avoid technical, linguistic or cultural problems. This means that we can guide your project through to completion, on schedule, cost-effectively and in accordance with your wishes.

An overview of project management
  • Project management for your system control - from first idea through to commissioning
  • Honouring deadline commitments
  • Worldwide project experience
  • Broad experience with operatives and test authorities in destination countries
  • Great flexibility and a customer-oriented approach

Through the production of hardware drawings with EPLAN P8 we create the ideal basis for efficient engineering and we provide an innovative basis for all downstream processes, such as maintenance of the system. The latest version of the documents can be called up digitally, meaning that it is available at all times.
All acceptance tests are performed digitally and are recorded in the database-based system. This reduces costs and the length of time required for commissioning. All test data can be called up immediately using the digital search function, which means that each test can be performed quickly and easily.
Operating manuals are available in HTML5, mobile app, PDF, Word or XML file format. This makes integration into other systems into child's play. Contents are user-friendly and are clearly laid out. This helps users to reach the desired outcome quickly on a step-by-step basis.
With our standard-compliant safety documentation we can provide seamless verification for standard-compliant definition and satisfaction of the desired performance level or SIL level.
