Continental India reaches a production milestone of 5 mn EBS units

Technology company Continental’s Gurgaon plant achieved a remarkable milestone by producing five million Electronic Brake Systems (EBS). The achievement is especially significant because the milestone was reached in just five years, ensuring the production schedule was unimpacted despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The EBS portfolio comprises Electronic Stability Control (ESC) for passenger cars and Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) for passenger cars and 2-Wheelers.

Krishan Kohli, Head – Segments, Vehicle Dynamics and Hydraulic Brake System, Continental Automotive India said, “This is an excellent milestone as it complements our wide focus for safe mobility and our commitment to Vision Zero - Zero Fatalities, Zero Injuries, and Zero Crashes. Demand for our safety solutions has been growing in both local and global markets, and right now we are in a strong position to meet our customer needs and market demand. Localization has been another important aspect of Continental India strategy as we achieved the five million mark since we have been consistently increasing our manufacturing and R&D footprint in India aligned with our customer preferences and needs.” 

In keeping with Continental’s unrelenting commitment to safety, the localization of EBS units began in Gurgaon in 2016, while the manufacturing of electronic control units (ECU) for EBS was set up in January 2018 at the Bangalore plant. Apart from catering to leading OEMs in the local market, the EBS are also exported to other Asian regions.

“What is most vital is that our Electronic Brake systems have directly contributed to about five million vehicles being safer today. Our target is to raise the annual EBS production capacity by 25 percent in the next three years,” Krishan added.

Anudeep Garg, Head of the Gurgaon plant, Continental Automotive India said, “It is wonderful that we have been able to achieve this number despite the ongoing pandemic. Of course, there were challenges we had to face but credit to the entire team for having persisted despite adversity to help achieve this milestone. This has also largely been possible because of Industry 4.0 practices, which are helping the entire manufacturing value chain immensely. We have optimized our efficiency, quality, productivity, and reduced operational expense.”  

Localization

Continental is rapidly expanding localization efforts in India. With its “in the market, for the market” approach, the entire value chain from R&D to design and production according to customers’ requirements are expediated. This way Continental is enabling easy access to safety products by adapting globally proven technologies to suit the local market. The wide-scale production ensures cost advantage, especially in a value-driven market like India.

As a part of its efforts to ensure global production standards and quality, Continental has set up a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility with a focus on Industry 4.0 practices such as automation, digitization, and augmented reality for remote access in troubleshooting situations in Gurgaon. 

Anti-Lock Brake Systems (ABS)

A pioneer in technology, Continental ABS was first presented at the IAA in 1969. Continental has a variety of products catering to different segments of vehicles. For instance, the MK 100 ABS Entry has been designed for vehicle segments A, B, and C in the growing markets. The packaging is compact and extremely light, at less than 1200 grams. Furthermore, throughout the MK 100 product family, the hydraulic and electrical interfaces are compatible with each other, which makes the MK 100 easily applicable for platform concepts of car manufacturers wanting to benefit from a truly scalable product range. 

Electronic Stability Control (ESC), presently the most important active safety systems, prevents critical vehicle states from developing. At the same time, ESC is a prerequisite for further safety technologies like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. The high-performance MK 100 system offers all functions, from basic ESC to a high-end system with the convenience and performance features of future brake-by-wire technology.
