Downgauging has resulted in a packaging weight reduction of 20 percent
Schreiner ProTech has started a successful worldwide cooperation with Bosch, which has seen it develop a plastic clip with a human-readable, laser-engraved code combined with two silver color laser film (CLF) labels for the newly introduced Bosch QualityScan.
As a producer of diesel injection systems, Bosch places great value on quality when it comes to repairs. QualityScan offers car repair shops and end consumers transparent documentation via the internet of common rail components repairs carried out by authorized garages.
Schreiner ProTech supplies the items necessary for this corresponding proof to Bosch diesel repair shops worldwide, including in Brazil, where diesel is particularly prevalent.
The code of common rail injectors for certain utility vehicles is located on a plastic clip affixed to the component. Schreiner ProTech developed a laser engraving process including code and human-readable text for this clip. For the required marking of other components with ID labels, a tried and tested Schreiner ProTech technology was used in CLF. Schreiner ProTech produces and supplies both the laser-engraved plastic clips and ID labels, each of which is customized.
Schreiner ProTech labels the components used in Bosch Diesel Centers and by Bosch Diesel Services with individual encoding. The codes give evidence to customers that original spare parts of common rail injectors and pumps were installed utilizing certified repair processes. The end consumer can scan the code with a smartphone app and immediately receive confirmation that the order was carried out using original spare parts in accordance with manufacturer specifications.
Schreiner ProTech sales director Matthias Tuebel said: ‘We always strive to offer our customers an efficient, integrated solution. In this case, through our proven CLF and laser engraving technology, we were able to quickly and successfully meet two distinct requirements with one product.’
