Setting the Standard in Next-Generation Electric Compressors
The reliability and performance of electric air conditioning compressors in EVs, hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles heavily depends on one component: the compressor terminal.

For the first time, the technology group and compressor terminal expert SCHOTT now offers a range of standard compressor terminals that have been long sought after by e-compressor developers. Fully optimized for performance and efficiency, the portfolio includes a standard design for 200-500V applications, typically used in electric vehicles.

ARaymondlife, groninger and SCHOTT team up to demonstrate flexible and agile aseptic manufacturing at CPhI Worldwide
With ever more new pharmaceutical drug products entering the market, pharmaceutical companies are facing new challenges when it comes to fill and finish. These processes now need to adapt to different output speeds, changeover times or the ability to process nested containers i.e. syringes, cartridges or vials on one filling line. In particular, pharma companies in biotech or cell and gene therapy development as well as large pharma manufacturers with CMO activities are consequently in need of flexible approaches in fill and finish. One such approach will be demonstrated at this year’s CPhI Worldwide in Frankfurt, Nov. 5-7, by ARaymondlife, Groninger and SCHOTT at booth 111F10. More

SCHOTT drives autonomous mobility forward
Glass solutions play a key role in improving LiDAR sensors in self-driving cars

When it comes to autonomous driving, light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technologies are the foundation upon which a next-generation machine vision can be built. LiDAR sensors, together with radar and cameras, will be linked by artificial intelligence (AI) to enable the highest level of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS 5) and allow for full automation of all driving functions. However, none of the existing LiDAR technologies on the market today meet the performance and reliability requirements to support fully autonomous driving at a competitive price level. SCHOTT is prepared to propel autonomous driving into the future with the broadest range of high-quality glass components and hermetic packaging available to LiDAR manufacturers and suppliers at scale.
