In 2010 STEINERT recorded the highest turnover in its company’s history and, with the highest level of incoming orders for three years, started successfully into the new business year 2011 (Fig.). STEINERT’s success in 2010 was thanks to its sustainable investment in new product series and in a further expansion of the company’s sales activities during the crisis. The company has also moved closer to its customers with improved services when providing spare parts and commissioning new systems. The customers – plant constructors, recycling companies, end customers, planning offices, etc. – have also received more in-depth advice in the selection, application and combination of STEINERT sorting solutions.
Thanks also to the successful integration of RTT STEINERT in the STEINERT Group, it has been possible to effectively implement projects worldwide, enabling STEINERT to successfully position itself on the market as a full-range supplier. STEINERT also continued to live up to its role as a leader of innovation in 2010. Special sorting applications gave rise to new technologies. For example, the X-ray sorting system XSS® F opens up completely new sorting possibilities. Armatures ranging from the smallest copper “meatballs” through to heavy windings weighing several kilograms can be recognized and separated by our newly developed blow-out unit. The online object recognition of the 3D sensor also makes entirely new separation applications possible, such as separating different minerals, and even sorting insulated cables out of a mixture of materials. The 3D form recognition is independent of the colour of the target object, and black objects are also recognized reliably.
