EWAB is a privately owned company which was founded in Sweden in 1970 at the dawn of automation.
EWAB Engineering has over 40 years of unmatched track record in the Flow Technology and Conveying Automation business.
In the early days of automation there were no industrial robots or gantries, and many control systems were pneumatic. EWAB Engineering has pioneered almost every modern technique used in automation and invented many of the designs used in the conveying business today. The first electric robot was designed in 1973. EWAB installed the first PLC control system in 1978. Gantries saw daylight during the early 1980’s.
We made a strategic decision in early 1980 to focus on the most challenging market there is – large conveying automation projects to the automotive industry.
Over the years we have seen the trends and fashions. Some died fast, others have remained, while most have changed name over the years. There was the Lightless Factory, Flexible Manufacturing System – FMS, Flexible Assembly System – FAS, Agile manufacturing, JIT, TQM, TPS, Lean and so on. What remains is Lean Manufacturing and Theory of Constraints.
We supply Flow Technology and conveying automation all over the world through our 10 Project Centers which perform every part of the process from inquiry to run-off and final documentation.
