New measuring systems in the laser and production area 2

Two new measuring systems from OGP expand our measuring capacities. This investment will reduce distances and waiting times. The production process is additionally optimized, as the new measurement data acquisition is fully integrated into the other work steps. In the laser area an MVP 600 with a measuring area of 600 x 600 cm is used. This system is equipped with a rigid measuring head and a movable measuring table. Our production 2 has received a CNC 1500 with a measuring surface of 900 x 1500 cm, which has an additional touch function and laser sensors. This way, 3D objects can be measured more easily and accurately. The measuring head is movable and can move over the test part on the X and Y axis.

3M ™ High Air Flow (HAF) filter technology no longer produced

20. June 2018

The manufacturer 3M already removed this material from the product range at the beginning of 2018. The J. Schwarz GmbH, as well as all other processors of the HAF material, can not reorder. For this reason, we can no longer accept orders for these filters.


18. May 2018

As J. Schwarz GmbH we look forward to the in-house transfer of know-how for our young business PINBALL UNIVERSE. Special protective films have been developed to preserve the value of the wooden playing fields and the range of ball shooting of current pinball machines. Even before, knowledge and technologies have successfully flowed into our new division. In particular, technical solutions for reducing and avoiding typical wear points in pinball machines should be emphasized. Some production parts additionally serve to increase the playability and joy of playing. A number of products have already been installed in large numbers in customer devices or sold individually for self-installation. The close cooperation with professional players from German pinball leagues and the exchange of experiences with the Pinball community ensure a high acceptance of these articles.

J . Schwarz Folienverarbeitung GmbH becomes J. Schwarz GmbH

22. October 2013

The name change became necessary because J. Schwarz has been able to expand successfully its range of products, and the designation “Folienverarbeitung” [film processing] was no longer sufficient. This change is a “cosmetic” procedure in order better to expand our breadth of services and to be able to communicate better. The areas of responsibility of the managing director and partners as well as your contact person are completely unaffected by this.
