The Scharnhausen Technology Plant
Take a look behind the scenes at the Scharnhausen Technology Plant. In the leading plant for valves, valve terminals, electronics and pulse generators for automation, we are already using the methods and technologies of Industry 4.0 right now.
A metre rule, pen, notepad and a keen eye – you don’t need anything besides that to measure buildings or facilities. Or do you? As in many other areas of life, digitization is also taking hold here.
Electronics to wear
So-called wearables are in high demand, whether for smart watches, fitness wristbands or data glasses. In the private sphere, these devices offer many ways of acquiring data. For example, distances covered, sleep patterns or body temperature can be checked. The technology also creates potential for use in companies, especially with regard to optimizing processes.
Light is very important for the human organism. This is especially noticeable during the dark winter months when there is less daylight, which often leads to depressed moods. Even a long working day under artificial light can be tiring. The less daylight there is, the more the light levels drop at the workplace and hence the ability to concentrate. Scientists have come up with solutions that are now being applied in practice.
Overflowing with power
Everyone comes into contact with electroplated objects without noticing it. From frames for glasses, plug connectors in coffee machines to chrome-plated taps on washbasins and galvanized components in the car. Using this technology, tools and scissors, for example, are nickel-plated to protect them against rust.
