Time to enjoy - Inspiration for the new

The year is drawing to a close, and we also want to use these contemplative days as an opportunity to take a little vacation.

Our company will be on holiday in the period from 24.12.2018 to 06.01.2019.
From Monday, 07.01.2019 we will be back at your disposal with fresh energy.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.



Last week, the enclosure manufacturer OKW from Buchen was active at two international trade fairs with its own exhibition stand. These were, on the one hand, the world's largest trade fair for electronics, the electronica in Munich, and on the other hand the Compamed fair for suppliers to the medical technology industry.

This year, the motto of the leading trade fair electronica was "The future of electronics is smart and safe", and it recorded an increase in trade visitors to 80,000 (7,000 more than at the previous event in 2016) from 80 countries. Besides Germany, the top numbers of visitors came from Italy, Austria, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, USA, the Russian Federation, China and Poland, in that order. From 13-16.11.2018, OKW Gehäusesysteme was one of 3,100 exhibitors who showed the public their solutions and electronic products. The 85 sq.m. large OKW stand featured a completely new design – the visual highlights here were two illuminated presentation surfaces with mirror projection surfaces hanging over them. The two product surfaces showed the latest OKW series, as well as ranges of enclosures to cover the main points of the fair. The fair was also taken as an opportunity to launch a new series of wall-mounted and table-top enclosures on the market, with the name PROTEC. "The electronica trade fair is our main exhibition, and has been so since the very beginning. Every 2 years we can meet here precisely the target groups which we want to address with our enclosures and tuning knobs. The developers, designers and buyers always come with positive expectations, and look forward to seeing new and interesting products by our company live at the fair," says Christoph Schneider, Managing Director of OKW Gehäusesysteme.

The Compamed fair took place in Düsseldorf at almost the same time as the electronica (12-15.11.). In conjunction with the world's largest trade fair for medical technology, the MEDICA, the COMPAMED proved convincing as a leading international event for the medical technology supplier market. OKW Gehäusesysteme has been an exhibitor at this trade fair for 15 years now, because the medical and laboratory technology industries are still one of the main sales markets for the high-quality OKW enclosures and tuning knobs. The cooperation with the company HK Input Systems GmbH was presented at the COMPAMED, as well as in Munich.


PROTEC – Range of square enclosures with maximum operating comfort

We have developed a new enclosure range for you! The PROTEC has a square basic shape with plenty of space for your fixtures and fittings. Because of this, the new enclosure range is ideal for your application, either on the wall or as a modern desktop device. The ergonomically favourable inclination of 20° allows optimum operation of the terminal units and makes it very easy to read the data, even at different distances and angles.


Holder for STYLE-CASE Size L

Holder for STYLE-CASE Size L

Everyone knows the problem: the mobile device is no longer in use and there is no place to put it down safely so that it can be reliably charged and picked up again quickly in case of need. This is where the new holder comes in.
While the device is gripped securely in the holder, the display and operating panel remain easily visible and the interfaces are freely accessible.
The holder can be screwed to the wall, and for surfaces that cannot be drilled (furniture, glass panes etc.) it can be secured using adhesive foil.

Enclosures for IIoT Applications in Smart Factories

Industry 4.0 requires enclosures for smart sensor applications

The fourth industrial revolution, or "Industry 4.0" for short, has already begun, even if many people are not really aware of this. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that most people have already heard of it, but many are struggling with the definition and its real impact on day-to-day working life. In addition, the topical subjects of IoT (Internet of Things) and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) are mentioned in the same breath as Industry 4.0. This makes things a little more complex.
