Special-purpose machinery and plant engineering

The reliable switches and sensors from steute are essential components in diverse production processes and are especially used for the safeguarding, automating and controlling of machines and plants.

Highest standards

The range of applications for industrial machinery extends from drilling machines to mechanical press brakes to recycling plants, and is just as varied as the individual requirements involved. All manner of mechanical and electrotechnical devices must interact precisely, be coordinated for safety purposes, and be flexibly deployable in plants of all different sizes. Furthermore, customised machines pose their own challenges, and there are also the steadily growing requirements of energy efficiency and resource-saving production processes to be taken into account.

Using the latest automation technology, machines and plants are constructed in such a way as to relieve human beings of heavy, monotonous or complex tasks. Alongside optimal use of automation technology, hazard control also plays a central role.

In some application fields, switches and sensors also have to be able to withstand the massive impact of extreme ambient conditions, such as severe mechanical wear and tear resulting from vibrations or extreme temperatures.

Switches and sensors

The increasing demands which production processes have to meet are leading to increasing numbers of machines and plants being customised. This means that also their switches and sensors must be individually adaptable and flexibly deployable. And then there are the additional, application-specific safety aspects which industrial plants must pay attention to.

The product range from steute includes not only tried-and-tested cabled series, but also wireless industrial components and point-to-point solutions. Customised product variants and individual wireless solutions can be realised on request.

The products from steute feature high IP protection, extremely robust enclosures and corrosion resistance. Many switches and sensors are optionally available as explosion-proof variants for diverse Ex zones.

Innovative wireless solutions

In close cooperation with our customers, we develop innovative solutions with reliable wireless technology for all manner of industrial applications. By using wireless switching devices incorporating the two-component injection moulding process, for example, it was possible to overcome the discrepancy between the need for technical flexibility and the solutions currently available in the marketplace.

With steute you have at your side a wireless specialist for standard and individual solutions with a worldwide sales and service network, as well as local contact partners.
