tesa opens automotive solutions centreWith a reputation for contributing to advances in the automotive sector through the use of adhesive tapes as bonding, joining and fixing solutions, delivering benefits in more efficient production and lighter weight when compared to mechanical fixings, tesa is now focusing on extending these benefits to cover a wider range of applications than ever before.
The tesa Converting Centre, based in Hamburg and employing over 100 staff, is a strategically important part of tesa's automotive business unit. Focusing on producing precision die-cuts and application solution engineering (ASE), the centre works with manufacturers of dispensers or robots to develop optimised application solutions.
In 2013, 84 projects were successfully concluded in the field of ASE, an increase of 47% over the previous year, with the number of die-cuts produced passing the one billion mark. tesa's Converting Centre is part of the company's overall approach to developing high-tech tapes and constantly seeking new adhesive solutions. The company is showcasing its latest developments to automotive manufacturers, engineers and designers at various international locations via a series of 'tech days', where participants can see for themselves what the various tapes can do and identify potential new fields of application.
Later this year tesa UK will be hosting a number of 'tech days' to strengthen relationships with its industry partners.
