More and more vehicles are propelled by electric motors. The energy for the traction motor is stored in a high-voltage battery. The traction battery packs are installed at various locations of a vehicle and their enclosures consist of metal or plastic materials with smooth or textured surfaces.

EMI-Schutzfolien bewahren elektronische Geräte vor Beschädigungen oder Funktionseinschränkungen durch elektromagnetische Wellen.

Avoidance of damage caused by electromagnetic waves is an increasingly important topic in the electronics industry due to the growing number of electronic components being installed in automobiles. This increases the complexity of ensuring electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).

Charge transfers are caused by electrostatic charging, i.e. the separation of or friction between two materials. However, energized components such as cables and wires, chassis or PCBs may also cause flashovers unless they’re adequately insulated. Components may be damaged, people put at risk or combustible substances ignited by spark formation in this case as well.

Just like during a thunderstorm, electrostatic discharges can also occur in industrial environments: Whenever the difference between the charges of two objects is big enough this will result in a sudden equalization of potential. This flashover may destroy electronic components. Electromagnetic fields created by changes in electric currents and voltages can damage components as well. Protection films and labels from Schreiner ProTech reduce this risk: they provide insulation and shielding or warn against voltages.

Schreiner has developed the next generation of its COLOR LASER FILM marking system. A new composition of the CLF layers enhances counterfeiting protection due to specific interactions that occur during the laser marking process.

Industry 4.0 is an increasingly relevant hot topic, as more and more companies in the automotive industry, in mechanical engineering and in the electronics sector are seeking to roll out RFID across all processes. While the selection of a suitable label tends to initially be focused strictly on unit cost, an analysis covering all the bases right from the beginning would be important for developing a perfectly customized RFID solution with long-term viability. Schreiner LogiData’s 360-degree model assists in this endeavor.

Bonding solutions using self-adhesive die-cut parts from Schreiner ProTech perform three key functions: fastening, protection and height compensation. In this post, we’re presenting various field application examples.

“Digitization of mobility“ is a topic that runs like a common thread through the International Suppliers Fair (IZB) held in Wolfsburg this week. Our colleagues from Schreiner ProTech (Hall 3, Stand 3217) are right in the middle of the trade fair line-up. As a supplier of RFID labels to VW’s innovative “Transparent Prototype“ project, our business unit is right in line with this trend.

The technical magazine “RFID im Blick” (“Focus on RFID”) invites technology providers and everybody with an interest in optimizing their processes with RFID technology to the two-day conference “RFID tomorrow” in Düsseldorf on September 19-20, 2016. Frank Linti, Business Development Manager RFID from our Competence Center will be on site. At the trade booth, he will be talking to sales prospects. In one of 35 SpeedLabs he will present special label developments, which will give companies in the

Up to 300 film-based parts marking labels and functional components are installed in a mid-size car. Be it in the bodywork, the cabin, the powertrain or the gamut of electrical and electronic systems: Schreiner ProTech’s innovative product solutions play an important part in many automotive applications.
