EVOTEC with new intermediate size

Too big, too small? Today, electronics are planned and designed to meet the individual needs of the user. Optimally sized standard enclosures make their contribution here.
Thus we have continuously developed the EVOTEC enclosure range and offer a comprehensive selection of different sizes and designs. The new size "EVOTEC 125" closes the gap between EVOTEC 100 and EVOTEC 150. EVOTEC allows you to achieve more efficient solutions by offering the best possible enclosure dimensions for your application, from 80 x 50 x 22 mm to 250 x 155 x 54 mm.

OKW maintains its high quality standards and uses its potential through targeted training and further education

OKW vaccinates its employees on site against COVID-19

As of 7 June 2021, the priority regulations for vaccinations came to an end in Baden-Württemberg, and company doctors can now vaccinate within companies. OKW Gehäusesysteme reacted immediately and offered to vaccinate all its employees in administration, logistics and production against COVID-19.

OKW decided to do the job properly – OKW employees can be vaccinated against Corona in their own company. Of the approximately 124 employees, around half have not yet been vaccinated, and have gladly accepted the offer. The first doses of the mRNA vaccine from BioNTech/Pfizer have already arrived and are being injected under the direction of Dr. Michael Mikolaiczik, a long-standing company doctor. First there was the information sheet on the vaccination against COVID-19, then the questionnaire on medical history and the consent form. In addition to the documents, the company doctor also offers personal consultation and answers all questions that may still be unanswered.

"Since February we have been waiting for this opportunity and working on the preparations – and now we are overjoyed, proud and relieved that vaccination can finally start for everyone in the OKW family – directly at the workplace, so to speak," says Managing Director Christoph Schneider.

The dates for the first vaccinations are Wednesday, 16.06. and Saturday, 19.06. Vaccination is carried out in the first-aid room, which is located in the new administration building - next to the "Turtle" - in Friedrich-List-Strasse. To rule out any possible reactions to the vaccine, each employee is then observed by a doctor for a certain period of time. The second vaccination is then scheduled for July. In addition to OKW itself, the entire workforce of the OKW Group at the Buchen and Schlierstadt locations will also receive a vaccination offer.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 lung disease, OKW Gehäusesysteme has produced more high-quality enclosures than ever for medical applications, as well as tuning knobs, which are essential for the operation and control of ventilators, for example. As a result, OKW was granted the status of a systemically important KRITIS company as early as April 2020.

SOCIAL DISTANCING WARNING DEVICES FOR COMPANIES

In times of the Corona pandemic, companies are facing major challenges. The prescribed distancing rules must be followed in order to combat COVID-19. Employees must be protected from possible chains of infection and health risks, and meetings are to be avoided or held by video chat in the home office. Of course, this is not feasible for employees in incoming goods departments, warehouse logistics or production areas. But what is the most efficient way to maintain minimum distances and protect the entire company from large-scale quarantine measures? OKW offers numerous enclosures for implementing distance control.
