stands for “ Energy Efficiency in Production in the Drive and Handling Technology Field” and is a joint project as part of the German
Government’s energy research programme.
...The goal of the project is to develop methods, tools and products to guarantee energy-efficient automation.
The correct selection of technology (effectiveness), and the correct operation (efficiency) are critical for energy efficiency and functionality. Based on an overall study, the project investigated both pneumatic and electric drive technology, including the functional chain and the use of these technologies in the field of handling and robotics.
