Total Surface Quality ¬ Steinemann Technology.

One-stop partner, including innovative services for top performance in the sanding process.
'Total Surface Quality' is the motto under which Steinemann Technology presented at LIGNA 2015 as a supplier of innovative complete solutions for the entire sanding process that enable customers to maintain a decisive lead over the competition ¬ from innovative sanders, high-quality abrasives and quality control systems perfectly adapted to the machines, all the way to a comprehensive range of services. The Steinemann presentation on its exhibition stand (Hall 27, Stand G37) will include a new option for its Satos sanders: the Automatic Belt Oscillation retrofit package that permits substantial cost savings in the sanding process, while further improving panel quality at the same time. In addition, the company will be launching a new service partner programme for customers at LIGNA 2015 under the name Quartz Circle. Depending on the intensity of the partnership with Steinemann, the company will in future admit customers to the Quartz Circle. That will give these customers various commercial advantages in connection with consumables, spare parts and services.
"By introducing the Quartz Circle at LIGNA 2015, we will be emphasising that Steinemann is far more than just a machine manufacturer. Rather, our customers benefit from our integral range of products and services. With innovative machines, the associated consumables and comprehensive services, it covers the entire sanding process, thereby guaranteeing our customers optimum sanding quality with maximum machine availability and cost efficiency ¬ in other words: optimum results for the three key parameters of the sanding process. So, we offer highly attractive additional benefits for members of the Quartz Circle who decide to avail themselves of our one-stop partner service and transfer responsibility for their entire sanding process to Steinemann," explains Markus Müller, Vice President Sales & Marketing at Steinemann Technology in St. Gallen.
As regards machines, the Satos range from Steinemann will be the focus of the company's exhibition presentation at LIGNA. For example, Steinemann will be displaying the Satos eco, a particularly economical sander that rapidly pays its way in day-to-day production. With its outstanding price-to-performance ratio, the Satos with low-vibration mineral cast frames is the most successful sander from Steinemann in the world. Among the key components of all Steinemann sanding systems are the high-quality contact drums, which Steinemann produces by a special method at its headquarters in St. Gallen in Switzerland and which, on average, last at least twice as long as drums from other manufacturers.
The new automatic belt oscillation function for Satos machines permits faster belt changes, optimum belt tracking and automatic tuning. Trouble-free belt oscillation, in turn, eliminates the need to tune settings during operation. Moreover, only half as much compressed air is needed in the sanding process. All this permits substantial cost savings. In keeping with Steinemann's exhibition motto of 'Total Surface Quality', the optimised utilisation of the sanding belt, the constant and homogeneous oscillation and the individually adjustable oscillation parameters also lead to a further improvement in sanding quality. Automatic belt oscillation is available not only as an option for new Satos machines, but also as a retrofit for machines already installed by customers.
Steinemann's product portfolio is rounded off by a complete range of various consumables, such as sanding belts and SprintInserts/SprintPlatens. The company's ultramodern factory in Shanghai produces the sanding belts to strict Swiss quality specifications, thus guaranteeing optimum performance of these consumables in the sanding process.
In addition, Steinemann provides a comprehensive range of international services, making it possible for the company to ensure maximum performance and availability of the sanders installed by its customers. Thanks to its global service network, Steinemann can react rapidly and flexibly to its customers' service requests and provide assistance in their respective mother tongue.
The traditional stand party, to which the company invites its customers, will again be held on the company's exhibition stand in Hall 27 on Wednesday, 13 May 2015, starting at 6.00 p.m.
