Fastener Fair Global 2023

Fastener Fair Global is the meeting place for leading companies in the fastener and fixing industry and offers an ideal opportunity to exchange knowledge.

Dr.-Ing. Max Schlötter GmbH & Co.KG will present its developments in the field of electroplating processes at booth 3550 (hall 7). In addition, in cooperation with iChemAnalytics, we will be showing an innovative high-precision tension measurement instrument for in-process monitoring of materials and processes to prevent hydrogen-induced embrittlement.

  • The Pickle Degreaser SLOTOCLEAN BEF 1790 is the result of development work with the tension measurement instrument of iChemAnalytics. The result is an optimum inhibiting effect even with high-strength steel grades and a reproducibly low tendency to material defects.
  • With the patented alkaline Zinc-Nickel SLOTOLOY ZN 210 VX, energy consumption is reduced by up to 30% thanks to new innovative anode technology.
  • The boric acid-free weak acid Zinc-Nickel SLOTOLOY ZN 1000 works with a significantly lower metal content and reduces raw material costs.
  • The new innovative Sealant SLOTOFIN GM 2450 meets the current OEM requirements of MBN 10.544 and VW 01131.

We are looking forward to your visit and lively discussions in the field of electroplated coatings.

Schlötter is new Cooperation Partner of Polestar

Everything starts and ends at zero. The task: to build a CO₂-neutral car.

The Polestar 0 project was launched in 2021 with the conviction that the automotive industry needs a complete overhaul. While the shift to electric cars eliminates exhaust emissions, Polestar recognises the need to urgently address the emissions that occur during production. The ambitious goal of the Polestar 0 project is to eliminate all CO₂ sources throughout the supply chain, from raw material extraction to material and vehicle production to delivery and end-of-life, without relying on misleading compensation programs.

Hans Pehrson, head of the Polestar 0 project, comments: “My conviction in the success of the Polestar 0 project is reaffirmed every time we meet with new collaborators. It’s clear that there is immense potential to tap into around the globe. Achieving the seemingly impossible is never a one-man show. It is only through collective action that we can achieve the breakthroughs that truly make a difference and find the transformative solutions that go beyond the car industry.”

Basic materials research is fundamental, so bio-sources and mining, followed by refining and man-made materials, are key to success. More academic and corporate partners are needed, and the search for suppliers of raw materials, bio-based chemicals, polymers, electrical components, noble gases and other basic materials continues. With the goal of bringing the car to market by 2030, solving the remaining missing elements is of utmost urgency.
For the Polestar 0 project, Schlötter will focus on capturing and visualising all greenhouse gas emissions associated with the existing supply chain and end-of-life of electroplating chemicals and processes in electronics and corrosion protection.

A Strong Team with a lot of Experience and Vision

We are very pleased to have appointed Dietmar Stork as Head of Sales for Schlötter Galvanotechnik. Dietmar Stork has been working for Schlötter for more than 25 years and started in the service department directly after his studies in surface technology and materials science, before moving to the sales department shortly afterwards. In his function as Area Representative, Mr. Stork has very successfully developed the area in the south-west of Germany and parts of France over the last decades. We wish Mr. Stork all the best for his new central function in the company and just as much success as he had in the sales force.
Thomas Haberfellner, who was responsible for sales, service and the Chemicals Business Division until the end of 2022, will focus on the Chemicals Business Division in the future and will be responsible for developing new markets.
Dennis Arnhold, the newcomer and successor to Dietmar Stork, will use his experience as a service technician and his expertise from his studies in surface and materials engineering to provide Schlötter’s customers with the best possible individual support. The team of national and international sales staff at Schlötter is looking forward to the reinforcement and the future cooperation.
