The 48 year old Andreas schneiders has been appointed as the new technical sales manager corrugated at Baumer with effect from 1 July 2016. Schneiders has been working at Baumer since 1999 and has acquired vast experience in various fields across all the relevant industries and applications when it comes to the subject of adhesive applications, including the associated quality assurance and camera verification systems.
In his previous position as applications engineer, Schneiders already specialized in the corrugated sector over the past four years. He supported countless Baumer customers worldwide by providing on-site advice and assistance regarding the realization of optimum gluing systems – particularly also to meet customer-specific requirements. He will be putting the practical knowledge gathered during this time into his new capacity as global technical sales manager corrugated, in order to develop innovative solutions for the future demands of the corrugated industry, together with the experts from the Research & Development department and in close collaboration with customers.
“The manufacture of corrugated packaging is showing a clear trend towards zero-defect production, as in other sectors. I see one of the focusses of my work as being on helping our customers to get as close as possible to this target. In this context, Industry 4.0 will also be a topic in the FFG sector in future, meaning the more extensive integration of production systems,” says Schneiders, formulating the key content of his new position. “In
addition to which, I think it will be an extremely exciting job to consistently exploit the enormous growth potential of our innovative solutions for adhesive application and quality assurance in corrugated conversion, particularly in the emerging nations.” Schneiders is the successor to Thomas FischerMoore, who no longer works for Baumer.
