NEW AT DIENER’S

BREAKING NEWS

Look behind the scenes

A curious group came to the company building in Ebhausen.

The slogan on the LED display in front of the front door "The future will be electric" quickly became a topic indoors. There were both interesting discussions about the development in the e-mobility area, as well as about the constantly growing use of robots in industry.

Training should prevent a shortage of skilled workers

Christof Diener, the company owner and founder himself, took his time this afternoon and answered every question. Of course, the growing shortage of skilled workers was also an issue - however, Diener Electronic has its own recipe for this, as the company founder explained: "It is very simple, we provide training, because the training of specialists is the most important investment in the future of the company."

After a lively discussion, the visitors went across the building. You could get an idea of ​​the everyday life of the employees. In addition, visitors gained insights into the design, the individual production of the systems and also in all other departments. In the process development, the interested group was brought closer to the effect of a surface treatment by means of tests.

Since this day met with such great enthusiasm, all the seats were fully booked weeks before the event and the waiting list was already well stocked, there will be another open day at Diener Ectronic on January 21, 2021.

Zeller School Nagold vocational training info day

In the Zeller School in Nagold, the apprentices’ day took place on 17 July.

We got the chance to present three of the eight apprenticeships offered in our house.

In small groups, the students had the chance to talk to all participating companies about the vocational education options available. We hope that we managed to make some students think about joining us to be trained as a

cutting machine operator, mechatronics technician or electronics technician.

As an eye-catcher, we presented our eRod – the electric car assembled by our apprentices in the frame of a project.

It was a very interesting morning. We hope we could give the students some new insights into the field of vocational training.

Many thanks to the Zeller School for giving us and the students a forum for a friendly get-together and many interesting discussions.

eRod apprentices’ construction project

To make primarily plastic surfaces with poor bonding characteristics fit for bonding and painting, the industry uses toxic and pollutant chemicals. The Ebhausen-based company Diener electronic GmbH + Co. KG manufactures plasma systems which make hazardous chemicals redundant. 

The surfaces are treated in a highly aggressive medium which is called “plasma”; it is an ionised gas. Plasma attacks plastic surfaces harder than any corrosive liquid, creating bonding spots for paints and adhesives. However, plasma exists only under specific conditions, for example in a vacuum or under high voltage. Once you switch the high voltage off and vent the vacuum chamber, the plasma instantly turns into harmless nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen or inert gas. More and more top manufacturers change from wet chemicals to environmentally friendly plasma treatment.

Diener is also committed to first-class vocational training. Approx. 20% of our staff are apprentices, which is a top quota in Calw district. This year, our boss Christof Diener invested in a very special apprentices’ project. He bought an electric car kit from the Swiss manufacturer Kyburz. The vehicle, named eRod, is a puristic, street-legal racing car. Uncompromising in terms of technology and riding characteristics, it offers maximum riding fun for car afficionados – the perfect project for technology-loving young people.

With the support of a qualified electronics engineer, it took the apprentices only four Saturdays to assemble the eRod in the frame of a team-building event. Since the eRod is a puristic car and all its components – engine, differential, gearbox, brakes, batteries – are visible for understanding their design, the assembly team gained deep insights into the automotive and electrical technology. And into the batteries, of course: While the driver of a regular E-car knows that somewhere in the car there is a heavy-weight black box, the battery, he will never see its interior. But the Diener car makers built the connections of the 50 battery cells to the 108 volt supplying system themselves.

As an electric car, the eRod stands for the future of the automotive sector. Equipped with a 45 kW engine, it has a theoretical range of 183 km (100 km in practice). The new company car will be used primarily for short rides, for example to the post office. Without roof, wind shield and doors and a boot that can hold one small backpack, it is not really the car for a business trip. Its purpose is above all to be a fun ride, arise interest in technology and offer an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional cars. It may be used by anyone with a driving licence. Nobody has to be afraid that the Diener apprentices will be a danger on the Black Forest roads in the future: While the acceleration from 0 to 50 km/h takes only 4.2 sec., the top speed of the vehicle is limited to 120 km/h. Furthermore, the car was covered in Diener electronic design adhesive foils.

It shows where electric mobility has to go to really save energy: to lightweight construction. Including 200 kg of batteries, the little car weighs only 600 kg. In keeping with these considerations, Diener also provides regular e-vehicles for everyday use: For short errands, the staff use an e-cargo tricycle ”XCYC” by GWW in Calw, and a Renault Twizy for somewhat longer distances. Converted to petrol consumption, these would be 0.1 litre or 1.0 litre vehicles.

To this day, we have not managed to find a good solution for the conversion of the vehicle fleet for fast worldwide customer service to e-cars. The Diener electronic engineer will have to spend quite a few Saturdays trying to find a solution.

However, we took a first step in the direction of electric mobility: From this autumn, Diener electronic GmbH + Co. KG is the official sales partner of Kyburz for Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria and Hesse. If you are interested, please call us to arrange for a test ride.
