STEIN Logistic

Configuration instead of programming
With STEIN LOGISTICS, STEIN takes over the control of the production processes and the communication with the work stations. The mature and evaluated control system has been in use on the market for more than 25 years and inspires the users with its simple operation and flexibility. Order management, product management and especially the timetable can be easily created and changed without SPS programming knowledge. Especially in times of Industry 4.0 the vertical integration by STEIN LOGISTICS is possible for many years (ERP/MES).

Efficient service package for your logistics

Benefit from the simple configuration

The STEIN LOGISTICS includes production relevant functions that are decisive for your success. The all-encompassing STEIN LOGISTICS can be applied to every type of production and is based on an innovative configuration of the individual modules such as

  • Product Management
  • Order Management
  • Workflows

Successful STEIN users configure their line according to their individual needs. Evaluations in the phases of maintenance, commissioning and data transfer to superordinate systems are “daily work”.

Control Philosophy

Control Philosophy

The material flow that a good system allows is the pulse of a successful production. But any plant is only as efficient as its control system. So there is more behind the STEIN 300 plant control system than just a sensible design and good software – it is the result of a philosophy that STEIN cultivates in all its systems: making work easier for the customer and always thinking that decisive bit further.
Product Management

Product Management

From mixed production lot size 1 to pure series production, each product can be created and supplemented with additional parameters via the product management.

Workflows can be attached to each product to include the individual route in case of an order. Product parameters can be easily output at the workstations – variants (e.g. connector type, colour).

This gives you the necessary flexibility in the age of Industry 4.0 to map your product portfolio individually.



The heart of the control system is the Workflow. Here you can configure production processes without any programming knowledge. Depending on the result of the work station, the pallets with your product moves to the next desired station. The RFID technology in the STEIN system is used for unique identification of the workpiece pallets. Data are stored decentrally in the master. In addition to the classic “moving from station to station”, STEIN is also capable of process-oriented transport. Here, the station reports which process it is equipped for. In the process-oriented Workflow, the process e.g. winding wire thickness 2 is then started instead of the station.
Order Management

Order Management

The order control offers the user the ability to start, stop and delete jobs. These can be processed as single, parallel or endless orders.

In addition to the classic order parameters, signal numbers can be defined or the number of the pallet per order can be assigned.



STEIN visualises the status of the individual conveyor controls simply and meaningfully via the diagnostics package. In addition, the status of each control is displayed on the control itself. In the event of service, the user can see what the status is like and effectively provide assistance with the help function.
Vertical networking

Vertical networking

ERP/MES connection – From simple displays to traceability, STEIN is able to exchange information with many different systems. This offers free scope to bring transparency into the company.


The STEIN 300 has a fixed place in over 3,500 assembly halls. With a vast range of customers and in a wide variety of configurations.

From a simple circuit right through to ERP connection or traceability functionality, each installation is custom-made for our customers using a standard toolkit.

STEIN 300e

STEIN promotes the trend towards electrification with the STEIN 300e, which is based on the STEIN 300. Instead of pneumatics, the stoppers, transfer units or centering devices are controlled via electric drives. This is particularly a big advantage for cleanroom applications. As a side benefit, your production is more environmentally friendly.


The STEIN 500 performs particularly heavy jobs. It transports heavy workpieces weighing up to 80 kg safely and effortlessly through the production process.The products can even overhang the edges.

Despite the heavy parts, configuration and control of the system is still easy with tried-and-trusted STEIN LOGISTIC.
