On Thursday, 22.11.2018, we were able to welcome around 60 technical dealers to our booth at the 2nd VTH Theme Day "Bonding Technology" of the VTH Verband Technischer Handel e.V. (Association of Technical Wholesalers). After a lecture by Prof. Dr. Andreas Groß, the participants were offered four workshops of the adhesive/tape manufacturers Henkel, Sika, Ruderer (Technicoll) and tesa as well as a Krückemeyer workshop in our production.
Prof. Dr. Andreas Groß from Fraunhofer IFAM Bremen reported in an exciting lecture on "Bonding technology - a holistic view" all about the possibilities and advantages of the joining method of the 21st century.
In their workshop, Sika showed success factors and added values that play a role in new customer acquisition and customer loyalty through the use of bonding technology. The company Ruderer, better known for its own brand Technicoll, gave interesting insights into the technology of wet bonding in surface and structural applications. Henkel (Loctite) also introduced the participants to the advantages of new universal structural adhesives.
Tesa's workshop focused on constructive bonding with adhesive tape. Applications with HAF and ACXPlus were demonstrated and the participants were introduced to the use of adhesive tape in construction.
The topics were rounded off with a Krückemeyer workshop in our production. Under the working title "Individual solutions from adhesive tape - modern production techniques create customer loyalty" the participants were introduced to the entire range of adhesive tape and die-cut part processing.
The entire event was a complete success and we would like to thank all participants, manufacturers and employees who contributed to the success of this successful theme day!
