  Research

IMG_9566

For a number of years, 2E has been successfully involved in several research projects in the area of Microsystem technology. The first fully automated production line for hot embossed MID components resulted from a Ministry of Research and Technology (BMBF) aided AHMID project and which in 2004 manufactured the first worldwide series of MID parts for the automobile industry (Mechatronic Integrated Devices).

A further MID process has been developed by LPKF, a direct laser structuring of substrate plastics, which has enabled miniaturized 3D components with mechatronic functions to be manufactured. Today, these processes are used by 2E in the manufacturing of samples as well as in series manufacture.

Furthermore, 2E, through its Know-How and continual research and development work is well prepared for future market developments. Resulting from our current research projects in the areas of Sensor and Micro System technology, 2E has developed innovative products for medical technology, robotics and mobility. Companies such as Bosch, Hella, Leica Systems, Webasto and KaVo, to name but a few, are among our clientele.

Our Ecological Guidelines

1. Background

We see the protection of the environment as a basic requirement of an environmentally responsible company. A healthy, intact environment is, in our opinion, the basis on which life depends for us and for future generations. Active support to maintain a healthy environment we see as our fundamental obligation.

2. Principles

Environmental protection is an important part of our company philosophy. Economics and Ecology are not diametrically opposed. Consideration for the environment in our day to day activities is organized throughout every department in 2E. Processes, work-regulations and other activities support each other to reduce the impact on the environment.

3. Resources

The use of new technology to conserve energy and material is part of our philosophy as well as the avoidance of waste and the alternative use of scrap material.

4. Laws

For us, laws represent only the minimum standard in setting environmental goals in 2E. Moreover, our objective is to continuously improve our environmental protection goals..

5. Suppliers

Good environmental protection is guaranteed, in particular when it is supported by economic logic. Therefore, we undertake to support regional products and technology from local sources whenever we can. We are also asking our suppliers to focus their goals on environmental protection as well; therefore we promote sustained environmental protection with both our partners and suppliers. We prefer suppliers that have standards of environmental protection as high as we do ourselves..

6. Employees

Successful environmental protection programs can only be realized when all employees participate. The active support in environmental protection programs is positively reinforced inside and outside of the company.

Certification

Successful certification through TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH
2E has successfully passed an IATF 16949 audit of quality management systems for the production of electrical connectors, sensor housings, MIDs, mechatronic assemblies and systems. An additional certification, ISO 14001:2004, was awarded for the first time in 2010.

The certification was also confirmed again in 2013. The certification was awarded as a result of several years involvement in environmental protection projects and in particular the Eco Profit project with Esslingen County. At the same time the final steps for an integrated management system were being taken, where, for example, areas such as job safety were covered.

We would like to thank our quality manager, Fabian Herpel, who is responsible for the management systems at 2E.
