Greater precision

Freudenberg Medical – Helix iMC™

Silicone tubing can save lives – it is a key component in pacemakers or delivery systems for cancer drugs. The tube always has to meet the most precise specification, down to the thousandth of a millimeter. The Helix iMC technology by Freudenberg Medical is revolutionizing current industrial standards for quality control with comprehensive monitoring and documentation. The A.I. supported production data monitoring reduces scrap by more than 25 percent, therefore helping to protect the environment.

The future gets moving

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies – Fuel cells

How can you fill your tank with solar and wind power? This question is driving the mobility sector in its quest for climate protection. Not only the drive is important, so is the energy source. Fuel cells are part of the solution. More precisely: Hybrid systems that combine fuel cells and batteries. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is developing them for the utility vehicle industry and shipping. Alliances are needed to advance the technologies and infrastructure so that new drives and energy sources can prevail in complex transportation systems. Examples include the current cooperation with FlixBus – Europe's largest coach line – or the Meyer shipyard, one of the largest and most modern shipyards in the world.
