The European self-adhesive label industry annual conference in Baveno, northern Italy provided the setting for the European association of the self-adhesive label industry (FINAT) to present its awards for the best product entries. For Schreiner Group, the 2022 FINAT Awards were a resounding success. The hidden champion received four awards in total.
“With the forward-thinking technologies of RFID and printed electronics, we are a pioneer in the industry,” said CEO Roland Schreiner. “It is a great pleasure for me that these innovations are not only seen in the marketplace but also find such great recognition.”
The Schreiner MediPharm business unit’s Robust RFID-label was not only awarded first place in the Innovation category, it also received the main award in the overall group of Innovation & Electronic Printing. The exceptional feature of this high-tech label is its innovative construction protecting the integrated RFID chip against damage that may, for example, be caused by mechanical stress or impact, ensuring RFID functionality from production through to final use. In addition, the light-protection label that helps protect light-sensitive medications against UV radiation and blue light received the first-place award in the Pharmaceuticals category.
First place in the Electronic Printing category went to the film heater for advanced driver assistance systems from Schreiner ProTech. This electronics-in-film product enables reliable and permanent ice removal from the sensors of camera, Radar and LiDAR systems for driving safety even at sub-zero temperatures. Based on printed electronics, the film heater offers numerous benefits, such as the functional film that is extremely thin and flexible. Using state-of-the-art die cutting and printing technologies, even complex contours with tight tolerances are possible.
