When World Cup fans can scarcely contain themselves, it’s partly thanks to fixing technology from fischer that at least the stadium seats stay firmly in place. Having first made a name for itself with its dowels and screw plugs, today fischer is also one of the leading vendors of injection mortar. This is used for example to fix ventilators in tunnel ceilings, OR lighting in hospitals – and seats in sports stadiums.
In Denzlingen near Freiburg, the only fischer site of its kind in the world, a workforce of some 140 people develop, produce and distribute what are known as two-component chemical anchors, consisting mostly of resin plus a hardener and aggregates. Nearly 20 million cartridges are filled here every year.
Large quantities of pre-printed labels used to be warehoused here for the purpose. Today the company prints its own labels – digitally, and only as many as are really needed in the 36 hours ahead.
For this, fischer uses blank labels from HERMA, many of them nearly A4 size. The labels serve as the product label and completely envelop the injection mortar cartridges, to cite one example; a complex application which calls for strong adhesion and flexible label material to allow it to wrap around the product. This solution allows for fast response times, for example if a country needs a special version. Flexibility is the key – though not for fischer’s products themselves. They have to hold firm. And the same goes for the product labels.
