At the awards ceremony of the 2016 FINAT Label Competition and the 2015 World Label Awards in Amsterdam on June 16, Schreiner Group was recognized for two entries by the European Association of the Self-Adhesive Label Industry. This year the high-tech company again impressed the jury with its innovative products, winning 1st place in both the “Innovation” and the “Security” categories.

“Winning in yet another FINAT competition proves our company’s high level of innovative prowess,” said a pleased President and CEO Roland Schreiner in commenting about the accolades received by Schreiner Group. “It shows that innovation as a central corporate value in our mission statement is more than a mere statement of good intentions, but is actually being lived. Creativity and technology are inseparably linked together for us. Representing Schreiner Group, Head of Technology and Innovation Management Robert Weiss and Head of Research and Development Dr. Jens Vor der Brueggen accepted the FINAT Label Competition award in Amsterdam.

Mini Size, Major Effect: ((rfid))-DistaFerr Mini for Use on Metal 
With its dimensions of merely 10x50x1.7 millimeters the ((rfid))-DistaFerr Mini developed by Schreiner LogiData impressed the jury and was awarded 1st place in the “Innovation” category. This extremely small label for RFID applications on metal has a read range of up to one meter and delivers ten times the output power of conventional HF solutions. It enables reliable communication of smallest components and objects as required in asset management of machinery, in product marking or, most recently, in “smart factories” as well. “At the moment, there is no smaller UHF RFID label anywhere in the world that is suitable for use on metal,” says Frank Linti, Business Development Manager RFID at Schreiner LogiData.

High-Security Seal against Tachograph Tampering
In the “Security” category, the new high-security seals for Continental won 1st place. They were developed by Schreiner ProTech and Schreiner ProSecure. By means of the void effect that causes a visible message to irreversibly emerge when the housing is opened, the seals make any attempt to tamper with a tachograph visible at first glance. A customized hologram and sequential numbering protect the seals themselves against counterfeiting. “By combining various high-impact features we came up with an effective solution together with Continental that helps prevent tampering with statutory drivers’ hours and rest periods and thus increase safety for all road users,” says Thomas Köberlein, President of Schreiner ProTech.
