Patented mineral cast technology for optimum surface quality
(Product width: 2200 to 3200 mm)
The constantly increasing demands in terms of capacity and quality in the panel industry are also pushing the demands on sanding machines ever higher.
Steinemann has taken up this challenge and developed a machine which sets new standards in the high end sector. Inspired by nature, SATOS (SAnder for TOp Surfaces) is the first wide belt sander with a mineral cast frame. Thanks to the innovative technology, the panel industry benefits from new possibilities and perspectives:
- maximum availability, safety and maintenance-friendly
- high consistency in thickness tolerance and optimum surface quality
- trend-setting technology and optimal cost efficiency
The mineral cast technology is patented and marketed exclusively on a worldwide basis by Steinemann.
Low vibration mineral cast technology
The introduction of the mineral cast technology is opening up a new chapter in the construction of low vibration and temperature-stable machine components. The mineral cast is produced from compact vibrated siliceous limestone, a natural product from the Swiss Alps, and a small share of epoxy binder. We have a firm knowledge of the technology’s ability to meet mechanical, chemical and thermal and other similar demands. Its life span is comparable to that of other construction materials.
The recordings show the difference after a vibration excitation using a hammer. Following a vibration duration of 100 ms the amplitude intensity with steel (red line) is still 38%, with mineral cast (blue line) almost 0%.
