STEINERT opens new test center

T‌he metal sorting line of STEINERT's new test and development center will officially go into operation on 22 September 2020. By opening the new building, the company is trebling its testing capacity, allowing it to be more flexible in responding to customer demands. For over 130 years, STEINERT has specialised in building machines that allow its customers to look for, find and sort resources. The machines can be justifiably called “Resource Search Engines”. They satisfy increasingly versatile sorting tasks, not only helping STEINERT’s customers to sell their sorted products for more profit, but also helping to keep resources in circulation.

In the new test center, sorting systems – The Resource Search Engines – can be tested just as they will be used in a real industrial plant

The opening will start in a 90-minute live show – with focus on recycling. A presenter will interview STEINERT experts. The event will focus on providing an overview of the sorting technology installed. The guests can participate in live question and answer sessions.  After the live-show, there will be an Online-Seminar on “How to separate non-ferrous metals and sorting heavy metals to the maximum”. The Online-Seminar will answer questions about separating NF-metals from shredder processes and incineration bottom ash, improving aluminium quality as well as separating heavy metals in individual fractions

Sorting lines optimised to industries

By the end of the year, STEINERT will introduce additional sorting lines for waste recycling as well as for mining so that it can better achieve its aspiration of “test before you buy” and can respond with ever more accuracy to the sorting aims of extraction, purity and profitability for each sorting task. Each sector thus has its own sorting line so that customer enquiries and test runs can be implemented more quickly. “The processing sequence deployed in the sorting systems is the same as that used in a real industrial plant. We are delighted that even more customers can try out our technology, from magnetic separators to sensor-based sorting systems, such as x-ray transmission, x-ray fluorescence and near-infrared (NIR),” says Peter Funke, CEO of the STEINERT Group. The research and development team is also moving to the same building in Pulheim, seven kilometers away from STEINERT’s headquarters in Cologne/Germany, allowing customers to derive even more benefits from the latest developments.
