The factory of the future is the key topic at the Hanover Fair this week. Our colleagues from Schreiner ProTech , Schreiner ProSecure , Schreiner LogiData and Schreiner Services (Hall 8, D08) are on site, using infographics to illustrate what processes can be automated in a smart factory thanks to our functional labels and what information can be provided by means of smartphone apps.

Every car is assembled from about 10,000 individual parts. They are made of numerous materials, come from all over the world, and require different ways of processing or storage. In the automobile industry, RFID labels for product marking are increasingly applied by suppliers, thus enabling consistent detection and documentation of upstream products throughout the entire production process.

Traceability and proof of installation play a major role in many industries. The ISO TS 16949 standard, for instance, stipulates that in serial and spare part production in the automotive industry all elements contained in the final product must be identifiable at all times and uniquely labeled with information such as manufacturing date, expiration date or batch number.

Gearboxes are used to convert input speeds into higher or lower output speeds. In the automotive industry as well as in mechanical engineering and shipbuilding, many gearbox variants are used. Steering gears transfer the rotational movement of the steering wheel via rods to the tie rods. Change gears are operated mechanically with gear pairs.

A cat is a mouse’s natural enemy. The same applies to adhesives and oil: Usually, they do not get along and prefer to stay away from each other. There are virtually no adhesives that work well on oily substrates. Oily substrates and self-adhesive nameplates are a contradiction in terms – and exactly the challenge the team at Schreiner Group’s ProTech business unit have to tackle.

I sell Schreiner ProTech products in Bavaria. Coburg is the northernmost city in my sales area. I focus primarily on companies with which we have already generated medium sales volumes (from 100,000 to 1 million euros) or which seem to offer a similar potential. Customers with which we have generated significantly higher sales volumes are classified as ..

Over the past few months Annette Barth has been explaining in a six-part blog series what Pressure Compensation Seals are, how many different applications exist for them and what benefits they offer compared to standard solutions. If you have followed our blog series with interest and are keen to delve deeper into the subject, we thought you might like to learn more about Annette Barth’s role.

What’s most important: The PCS must reliably and securely adhere to its substrate. It also goes without saying that the PCS must be smoothly integrated into the whole production process to ensure quick, neat and reliable application.

Application possibilities
There are several ways to apply PCSs to components.

In the previous two parts of this blog series I showed you application examples from the automotive industry and very special Pressure Compensation Seals (PCSs). In this fifth part I will tell you something about how our Pressure Compensation Seals support you with adequate street lighting as you find your way home, with your e-bike as you move along or in getting safely rescued after being buried by an avalanche.
