June 5, 2023 (press release) –

For Schreiner Group, it was a resounding success: In this year’s FINAT label competition, two products were recognized with three awards. That all the accolades were presented in the Innovation category is a particularly outstanding fact for the hidden champion. The European self-adhesive label industry association (FINAT) was especially impressed by the Film-Based Cover that received two awards–including the overall group award for Innovation & Electronic Printing.

“I am delighted that we were recognized for two products with three awards,” said Dr. Jens Vor der Brüggen. As head of research and development, he personally accepted the accolades. “I am even more delighted about us having won the awards for innovations.” As a high-tech company, Schreiner Group has been driving the further development of labels intensively in recent decades—in a variety of markets. Schreiner ProTech specializes in the Mobility market, Schreiner MediPharm in Healthcare. “I’m particularly pleased that the three awards recognized a product for the automotive industry and one for the pharmaceutical industry,” said CEO Roland Schreiner. Schreiner Group’s winning products not least show how technical, forward-thinking, and innovative the most important products of the label industry are today.

The Film-Based Cover from the Schreiner ProTech business unit was the winner in the overall group of Innovation & Electronic Printing and in the Innovation & Electronic Printing–Innovation category. The product enables cost-efficient and easy sealing of component housings. Especially in comparison to a conventional injection-molded cover it entails clearly lower costs, saves space in transportation and installation–and enables a weight reduction of up to 85 percent. Even so, the film-based solution is stress-resistant and provides a water-tight and dustproof closure. An integrated pressure compensation seal guarantees reliable venting of the component.

The Smart Blister Card from the Schreiner MediPharm business unit was recognized in the Innovation & Electronic Printing–Electronic Devices category. The high-tech product extends a standard blister pack by digital adherence monitoring. Using integrated conductive lines combined with an electronic unit, data can be generated in real time as soon as a patient pushes a tablet out of a cavity–for instance, the time of removal, dose, or the specific cavity. The data can subsequently be read using a reader or smartphone app and transmitted to a database.
