Celebrating Steinemann’s 100th anniversary
Steinemann has been a specialist for perfect surfaces for 100 years now. In 1917, Ulrich Steinemann took the risk of starting his own business and quickly made a name for himself as a design engineer and producer of dough machines, household appliances and textile systems. In the course of its 100-year history, the company has continuously expanded and adapted its product range. For example, it developed and fabricated machines to coat a wide variety of materials, from wood and leather, to board and paper. Both then and now, the company recognized the importance of anticipating and responding to trends.

Smart and digital

Automation and sensor systems in sanding machines are a major topic in Steinemann’s Development department. Various sanding machine components have already been automated today, including the adjustable contact drum and sanding platen. Its contact pressure on a panel is measured by force sensors.

The Board Quality Cockpit (BQC) was developed as a comprehensive control system. It is a smart assistant that supports the machine operator in efficient, foresighted production operations. The system collects data and monitors the sanding process. For instance, it detects in time when a sanding belt needs to be changed, and gives recommendations for machine setup and maintenance. This digital analysis and early warning system is entirely new on the market and showcases Steinemann’s pioneering capabilities.

And we network more than just the operator and the machine! Our communication with customers is also faster and more flexible thanks to the remote functionality.
