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.

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.

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.
