Schmersal Newsletter

Welcome to the July 2017 issue of the Schmersal Newsletter

Latest news from the Schmersal Group



For the first time, our newsletter suggests taking part in a sweepstake. Our new light barrier has been nominated for the GIT Award 2018, and those who vote for a product in this competition are in with a chance of winning an SLR camera.

The newsletter also contains presentations held at our in-house show, an interview with our Product Manager Udo Weber and a specialist report about our new SLB range. Articles which, it is safe to say, contain lots of useful information.

Enjoy the read!
