The following abstract deals with the de A velopment of metal reinforced plastic slide chains with integrated sensor systems. The research focuses on the material behavior and adhesion between metal and plastics, adaption of micro electric devices on single chain links, large scale production for hybrid and lightweight parts as well as the formulation of design principles and logistics concepts for manufacturing of lightweight devices with merged processes. © 2014 Logistics Journal.

The handling of load-securing equipment e.g. loadsecuring straps or nets are often time-consuming, especially for courier, express and parcel-services (CEP) with a lot of way-points. The following article de-scribes the development of an automated load-securing system with a three-dimensional-preformed net. Mainly two components interact in this system. On the one hand an integrated anti-skid system used the advantages of a low-friction surface and otherwise the anti-slip proper-ties of an adhesive coating for the transport. On the oth-er hand, a flexibly adaptive net consisting of high-performance synthetic fibers lashed different sized transport units supported by net-reducer. In particular the automatic lash should increase the acceptance for the new load-securing system of the drivers. © 2014 Logistics Journal: Proceedings.
