SYNERGY is now protected under patent law

On 16.01.2018, the German Patent and Trademark Office granted the OKW SYNERGY enclosure series a legally valid patent. The combination of black plastic parts (top/bottom parts) and an aluminium profile anodised in silver which are bolted to each other by means of innovative connection technology is so far unique on the enclosure market. In addition, the SYNERGY scores with its purist design in 4 basic geometrical shapes: round, oval, square and rectangular. For these reasons, the protection of intellectual property is very important for this modern wall-mount and table-top enclosure series.

New enclosure size EVOTEC 100

From now on, the EVOTEC 100 rounds off the robust enclosure series at the lower end of the range. The plastic enclosures are available in two heights: with flat top parts for compact installations and with high top parts for more installation volume. An all-round tongue and groove connection ensures a high degree of stability. With the material ASA+PC-FR (UV-resistant) and the optional seal, outdoor applications are also possible.



Wall suspension element for EVOTEC sizes 200 and 250

For concealed wall mounting of the EVOTEC enclosure sizes 200 and 250, a wall suspension element is now available as an accessory. The two-piece design allows the enclosure to be clipped in place quickly and easily and, if necessary, two screws can be used to secure it against unauthorised removal.

At the electronica China trade fair for the first time

OKW Gehäusesysteme and its Chinese agents Phoeni-tech were present together for the first time at the electronica China trade fair in Shanghai from 14-16.03.2018. The electronica China is an international trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications, and is held annually in conjunction with the productronica China and the Laser/World of Photonics. In the German joint stand, OKW had an outstanding opportunity to present its extensive portfolio of high-quality plastic and aluminium enclosures as well as its tuning knobs to the Chinese public. In particular the design-oriented range of tuning knobs attracted plenty of interest among the numerous visitors.

For OKW this is a further step towards gaining a foothold in the Asian market and achieving greater publicity. Just in time for the start of the trade fair, a new website went online in Chinese. This allows potential customers and users to experience the OKW product portfolio in their native tongue. The company's own trade fair participation, as well as the language-specific website, generated extremely positive effects in sales within a very short period of time. As a result, further activities in the Asian region will follow, for example participation in the INATRONICS trade fair in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 03-05 May 2018.


Hoffmann+Krippner and OKW Gehäusesysteme together again at the embedded world in Nuremberg

Last week (27.02-01.03.) OKW Gehäusesysteme took part in the embedded world trade fair together with Hoffmann+Krippner, who are also located in Buchen. This cooperation promises perfect coordination between customer-specific operating elements and individual enclosure solutions.

The embedded world trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, is the world's leading trade fair for embedded systems. The numerous trade visitors were shown the diverse ranges of products of both companies on the joint exhibition stand of OKW Gehäusesysteme and Hoffmann+Krippner. For example, customer-specific operating elements can be optimally combined with OKW enclosures and tuning knobs to create an individual customised solution. The exhibited product portfolio went down very well with the visitors. In addition to numerous plastic enclosures and tuning knobs, OKW Gehäusesysteme presented the new SMART-TERMINAL aluminium profile enclosure as a special highlight. This series of enclosures simultaneously offers robustness and elegance, 3 sizes with plenty of space for large-volume installations as well as a variety of technical advantages. The exceedingly varied EVOTEC range of table top enclosures as well as the BODY-CASE wearable enclosure with a new, optional charging station were received with great interest. Hoffmann + Krippner is a leading provider of customer-specific membrane keypads and complex input systems. The trade visitors were able to find out about the comprehensive range of products, from a simple input front panel to complete embedded systems. A wide range of exhibits such as illuminated membrane keypads, capacitive input systems, touch panels and sensor systems were presented on the stand. Once more, the joint appearance at the fair this year could be described as successful: several new national and international contacts were established, and interesting conversations were held, including talks about potential projects.

Companies from a total of 38 countries were present at this year's embedded world. The event also had a greater surface area, more trade visitors and more exhibitors compared to last year: in six halls, 1,021 (+1%) companies from all over the world showed the 32,217(+7.3%) embedded experts from 78 countries where the journey was heading in the Internet of Things and the increasingly digitized world.
