MUNICH—Based in Töging am Inn, Germany, ViscoTec designs and manufactures equipment for dispensing adhesives and sealants. The company’s products are used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from bonding smartphone displays to manufacturing honeycomb structures for aircraft.
Fillers are one of the most important ingredients in an adhesive, sealant or encapsulant. Some materials contain a single filler, while others have multiple fillers. These fillers may account for up to 50 percent of the product's ingredients.
Some challenges that manufacturers face are simple, while others are multi-faceted. An example of the latter is continually providing customers with products that are stronger and more durable, yet lighter and smaller to minimize shipping costs.
Initiating movement of a standard bicycle can sometimes be challenging, such as when peddling up steep hills. Initiating movement of an electric bicycle, on the other hand, has always been much easier. The rider either pedal-assists the motor or activates it with a throttle.
