Fair marathon in November

OKW was present at three major trade fairs in Germany within two weeks: from 8.11. at the SPS in Nuremberg, from 14.11. at the COMPAMED in Düsseldorf and from 15.11. at the ELECTRONICA in Munich.

The complete range of enclosure and tuning knob technologies for smart and digital automation, e.g. in the field of measurement and control engineering, vehicle and plant construction or electrical control technology was presented at the SPS.

Internationally, COMPAMED is considered the No. 1 fair for the medical technology supply sector and was held as a combined fair with the MEDICA medical trade fair. Visitors to the OKW stand were able to examine the enclosures as well as various control knobs and then find them in use in customer applications in the neighbouring exhibition halls, e.g. as monitoring devices or remote controls for treatment beds etc.

At the same time, the atmosphere at ELECTRONICA, the world's leading trade fair for electronics, was excellent and intensive discussions were held. At the end of these two weeks of intensive work and discussions, Michael Reimold, Deputy Sales and Marketing Manager, drew a positive conclusion: "Potential buyers from a wide range of industries showed great interest; even if such a fair marathon can of course be exhausting, it has definitely been worth it for us. With our innovative enclosure solutions, we are absolutely in tune with the times. One highlight was our new MINI-DATA-BOX enclosure, which celebrated its première."

MINI-DATA-BOX – reliable connectivity

The new MINI-DATA-BOX is ideal for miniaturised electronic components, sensors and radio technology indoors and outdoors. It will convince you with its compact sizes and attention to detail.

The enclosure range is available in the basic shapes S (Square) and E (Edge) with and without flanges for external wall mounting or for easy installation of the units on rails, profiles or masts. Designer corners play gently with the light on the surface and lend the enclosures a new lightness - an aesthetic eye-catcher in the direct environment of the living and working world. Discover the potential of the MINI-DATA-BOX for your application and for a perfect network!

Soft-Touch finish in transparent

The Soft-Touch lacquer is now also available in transparent. In this way, the enclosures and tuning knobs can be haptically enhanced in the standard colours. The transparent finish is also suitable for products in an individual choice of colour, e.g. your company colour.

This gives your products a feel as soft as velvet, ensuring the pleasantly reliable operation of handheld instruments. We will be pleased to advise you on the technical options available.

Cable glands with integrated pressure compensation

For protection against condensation in hermetically sealed electrical and electronic enclosures in the event of temperature and pressure fluctuations, cable glands with integrated pressure compensation elements for constant ventilation are now available as accessories. This may save you the need to install an additional pressure compensation element to adjust the internal pressure in the relevant applications.
Sizes: M12x1.5 / M16x1.5 / M20x1.5 in light grey and black. Protection class up to IP68 is possible.

Cable glands and grommets in black

New in the accessories range are various types of cable glands and cable grommets in the standard colour black.
These are ideal for universal use – wherever cables and wires have to be reliably installed in enclosures, e.g. in plant and machine construction, automation and electrical engineering, etc. The colour black is predestined for the combination of enclosures and cable connections in dark colours.

Trade fair autumn – OKW at the "all about automation" in Chemnitz

"The heart of Saxon mechanical engineering beats in Chemnitz – and it beats particularly loudly when "all about automation" is the guest at Messe Chemnitz," say the organisers of the regional industry exhibition.
OKW Gehäusesysteme presented a wide range of enclosures and tuning knobs for industrial automation on 28th and 29th September. These included enclosure solutions and operating elements for industrial communication in the smart factory, in safety engineering, for professional HMI applications for machine operation and much more.
"We are very satisfied with the progress we made at the fair and the meetings we had with customers at our stand. Regional industrial fairs are important for us. Personal contact and the live experience are always something special", says Michael Reimold, Deputy Sales and Marketing Manager at OKW Gehäusesysteme.

The season continues in November with the major trade fairs SPS in Nuremberg, electronica in Munich and Compamed in Düsseldorf. We look forward to welcoming you!

A review of our open day

This year, 9th July was a very special day for us: after a longer break, we were able to continue our "moments inside" series of events, this time as an open day. Using the concept of "A look behind the scenes", we wanted to offer all interested parties the opportunity to get to know the Turtle family better.

The central idea of this day, "Come in, find out and feel good", became reality – the 200 or so visitors got a deeper insight into everyday life in the company, and were able to get a comprehensive picture of all of OKW's fields of activity and what training opportunities are available at OKW. Of course, many were also interested to see what the completely renovated administration building, which OKW moved into at the end of 2019, now looks like from the inside. In a relaxed atmosphere, visitors were able to spend some interesting hours in perfect weather on our premises "Im Krötenteich 2b". Managing Director Christoph Schneider was also very satisfied at the end of the day: "moments inside" is a very special series of events for us. We are very pleased that we were able to revive this series again with this open day and that it went down so well."

Attach EASYTEC using magnets

Depending on the application, EASYTEC enclosures can also be easily attached to suitable magnetic surfaces with two magnets, e.g. to machines, objects to be measured, switchgear etc. made of steel.

To do this, fit commercially available standard magnets with male threads, to suit the required holding force and ambient conditions, directly on the flange of the enclosure. To protect surfaces from scratches and to prevent the enclosures from slipping, rubber-coated magnets are ideal.

The use of magnets allows easy installation without the need to drill holes! In addition, users have more flexibility in the use of their equipment, e.g. as data loggers, analysis systems, etc.
