As the headquarters of the Electronic Packaging business unit, Landshut serves as a competence center for glass-metal bonding technology and an innovation center for specialty glass powders.
Markets and Applications
In Landshut, SCHOTT develops and manufactures specialty glass powders as well as a wide range of glass-metal housings that provide protection for sensitive electronics in various applications. Applications include high-speed data and telecommunications solutions, automotive, e-mobility, energy technology, dentistry, and cosmetics.
The versatility of glass-to-metal technology is further demonstrated by other applications such as hydrogen, batteries, implantable medical technology, or components for wearable devices.
The Electronic Packaging business unit consists of six product areas: automotive, opto-electronics, nuclear safety, compressor seals, specialty glass, and thermal fuses. Within these areas, we develop and produce some of the most widely used glass components worldwide. Although these components often fulfill their tasks invisibly, they accompany us in everyday life in a multitude of safety-critical applications, from components for airbags and seat belts to protective devices for lithium-ion batteries. Other products are being used in the semiconductor industry, in smartwatches and wireless earbuds, in liquefied natural gas applications, as well as in industrial high-temperature sensing and LiDAR sensors that are enabling autonomous vehicles.
