Schreiner ProTech Develops Label for Tamper Protection and Proof of Maintenance for e-bike Belt Drive from Brose Antriebstechnik

Solution reliably indicates unauthorized opening of belt drive’s protective housing, limiting access to manufacturers and maintenance professionals.

Blauvelt, NY – Schreiner ProTech, a Germany-based global leader in developing and manufacturing innovative functional labels with value-added benefits for the automotive and engineering-based industries, has developed a tamper-evident label with first-opening indication for the belt drive of Brose Antriebstechnik’s e-bike motors. The label reliably indicates any unauthorized opening of the belt drive’s protective housing, revealing any potential attempts at tampering and, crucially, providing clear evidence of the component’s most recent maintenance.

The motor is the centerpiece of an e-bike. The belt drive from Brose Antriebstechnik features an extremely quiet, robust and low-maintenance design that provides a natural riding experience. During scheduled servicing, then, it is important for shop personnel to verify that the most recent maintenance was expertly performed, and that the belt has not been tampered with since that time.

The label from Schreiner ProTech, modified to suit the customer’s specific needs, guarantees this. Special die cuts destroy the label upon any attempt to remove it, plainly indicating any unauthorized opening of the housing. Among other benefits, this protects both the manufacturer and bike retailers against unjustified warranty claims.

The solution’s development involved modifying a basic label for permanent adhesion to the drive housing’s powder-coated surface, and ensuring its destruction during peel-off attempts. The font and color of the label match Brose Antriebstechnik’s corporate design.

“Together with Schreiner ProTech we developed a label that fully meets the requirements for our premium e-bike drives in terms of high-grade appeal, quality and technical design,” says Holger Pries, Head of Development Brose Antriebstechnik. The label optimally ensures and documents that the drive has exclusively been serviced in a professional manner or is in original condition.
