Finals Makeathon #horizonteOWL
The SynFlex Group participated in the newly created it´s OWL Makeathon and made it to the finals!
Today’s flat wires for e-mobility
For years, enamelled round winding wires were virtually the top of the line. Fast automatic winding machines, low-cost wires, 50 international standards that cover just about everything you need. Flat wires, sometimes also called profile wires, were rather reserved for niches, e.g. wind power generators or - with aluminium as conductor - for use in transformer construction.
Together with 17 other companies SynFlex has submitted a challenge for the Makeathon #horizonteOWL.

The coronavirus pandemic is the biggest challenge in decades. As a result, we are confronted with a global economic crisis. It is already foreseeable that our lives will change fundamentally in the coming period - both privately and professionally.
The most important questions for all of us are: How do we deal with this uncertainty? How do we cope with our fears and worries? How do we move forward? Our answer is: Return to normality as quickly as possible with the highest possible safety precautions for all of us.

„Room for unconventional thinking“
Schwering & Hasse Elektrodraht GmbH in Lügde develops and produces enamelled copper and aluminium wires at the largest and most modern independent production site in Europe. In order to identify additional optimization potential in production, the company has invited to a Transfer Challenge and has named challenges for which they expect innovative ideas from outside.
Update Corona Information, 07.04.20

Cancellation Trade Fairs and Exhibitions 2020
Each of you certainly follows the daily developments on the topic of "Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)" very closely and also works on the implementation of various measures to protect people and ensure orderly business operations.
Update Corona Information, 25.03.20
We are all together confronted with an unprecedented situation. The corona pandemic (SARS-CoV-2) affects us all - personally and professionally. In the meantime, however, the appeal - to assume social responsibility - is becoming increasingly important. Thinking and acting in terms of gaining commercial advantage must not be our maxim to act on at the moment. Each of us is affected, which is why the burdens should not be borne unilaterally, but should remain balanced.
Update Corona Information, 20.03.20
The coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) continues to spread globally. In Europe, the USA and many other countries, we can all follow the enormous increase in the number of cases of affected persons on a daily basis.
In the meantime, a large number of temporary closures of companies have been announced, especially in the automotive industry. The effects on the global but also national supply flows and therefore on the entire supply chain cannot be foreseen at present - but we all have to prepare for coming disruptions.
Corona Information, 17.03.20
For almost 3 months now, we have been dealing with the corona pandemic that currently shows growing momentum. In this situation, we are all now called upon to make the greatest possible efforts to protect fellow humans and maintain public life.
SHWire wins the MAGNA Supplier Innovation Award 2019
Lügde/Linz, 21 November 2019.

Takeover "Adhesive Tapes" of Von Roll Deutschland GmbH
As of 31 December 2019 / 01 January 2020 SynFlex Elektro GmbH will take over the business division "Adhesive Tapes" of the Von Roll Deutschland GmbH, Augsburg / Germany.
The year is drawing to a close, the time of contemplation has come and we are presenting gifts to loved ones. But also there are many people around us who need our support. The Schwering & Hasse Foundation is committed to these people in the city of Lügde and the region. Especially the children are in the foreground.
Certification of real-life Practice
Until recently, the standard for QM systems in the automotive industry was ISO/TS 16949. It defines the additional industry-specific requirements for the production of series parts and spare parts in the automotive industry. This has been replaced by IATF 16949. SynFlex successfully completed the transition audit for IATF 16949:2016 in September 2018 and is therefore one of the first among the very few in the industry.
Environmental protection has long ceased to be merely an issue for the future but, despite this, very little is evident in some areas of collective efforts designed to protect the environment. We regard it as a very important task, and we also see in the enforcement of international agreements throughout our sector an opportunity to promote efforts in environmental protection beyond national frontiers.
Production secures prosperity, employment and, ultimately, the future for all of us. During times in which we see relocation to low-wage countries, the European economy asserts itself through flexibility, quality and stability. This applies in particular to the winding industry.
When it comes to the safety of passengers and personnel, use of the final product and individual components in railway technology involves the strictest demands along the entire manufacturing chain. The regulations in DIN EN 45545 must be observed to detect and evaluate any hazard potential at an early stage.
Smooth logistics have for many years been one of the basic demands customers make of a system provider such as SynFlex. Expressions such as just-in-time and 24-hour delivery service have now become an indispensable service which many customers no longer wish to do without.
