POLYCARBONATE IN-BOX ENCLOSURES NOW WITH TRANSPARENT TOPS

The IN-BOX enclosure range has been extended with 16 new models in UV-stable polycarbonate with transparent top parts. Sizes range from 84 x 82 x 55 mm to 302 x 232 x 110 mm. The transparent top offers several important advantage:

  • Displays can be fitted directly on the PCB, e.g. LEDs for system status displays are visible from the outside
  • Additional assembly and material costs for routing and wiring of components are avoided
  • No need to machine the top part to fit a window or the display directly
  • The high protection class remains unaffected.

THE TURTLE HAS A NEW HOME

After two years planning and construction, the move to the new administration building took place on Saturday, 30th November. This is located directly next to the previous headquarters of Odenwälder Kunststoffwerke Gehäusesysteme GmbH in Friedrich-List-Strasse in Buchen.

“Innovation with tradition" – this philosophy of the family-owned business, which has been based in Buchen since 1984, is the thread running through the construction project. It was important to preserve the basic structure of the building, which was built in the 1950s by Dr. Herbert Schneider, the grandfather of today's managing director Christoph Schneider.

“It is important for us to keep today's generations aware of the family and company history. This is the intention behind our OKW Museum, which has existed for many years and which covers the history of the company from its foundation to the present day. Not only the products, but above all the people, have made possible the basis on which we invest today for the future. In our new building there will therefore also be 'windows into the past' as reminders. We are very proud of the result – the combination of stable old stock and the latest technologies concerning climate and energy," says Managing Director Christoph Schneider.

In the previous office building, the individual departments were separated from each other by several building sections and very long walking distances. All administrative departments have now been brought together in a clear structure. In addition to attractive workplaces, central meeting area have also been set up to focus even more on cooperation in a pleasant environment.
