Transport systems & assembly lines

The optimal transport for workpieces

To transport pallets and their products safely, reliably and quickly through the assembly is the core of our transport systems and assembly lines. For over 50 years, STEIN is an innovator and stands in the first row when it comes to further developing technologies. We did not only anticipate topics such as Industry 4.0, we actively shaped them. Networked assembly systems, intelligent RFID-technology and vertical integration (ERP/MES) are in use by us since many product generations.

More secure, faster and more reliable transport through the production line

Stein transport system for assembly lines pyramid

Modular build of your transport system

STEIN system controls include production relevant functions, which are key to your success. The all inclusive STEIN LOGISTIC can be used for each production type and is based on an innovative configuration of each module such as:

  • Product management
  • Order management
  • Workflows

Successful STEIN users configure their system according to their individual needs. Analyses in the phases maintenance, commissioning as well as data transfer to higher-level systems are „daily work“.

Control Philosophy in the production line

The flow of materials made possible by an efficient system is the lifeline of a successful production operation. However, a system can only be as efficient as its controls. For this reason, there is more than just a clever design and good software behind the STEIN 300 system controls – they are the product of a philosophy that STEIN applies to all of its systems: to make work easier for customers and go the crucial extra mile in development. As a result, STEIN controls are prepared for almost any change, conversion or expansion that may take place in a production process over the years. Thanks to our many ­years of experience in developing interfaces with mechanical engineering companies, our customers can rest assured that choosing STEIN is the right decision when it comes to controls as well as components. Every transfer system we supply is commissioned and tested at STEIN and accepted by the customer on our premises. This means that every system is tested and delivered in working order. Clever customers think ahead – with controls that are pre­pared for any eventuality and are extremely easy to operate.

More secure, faster and more reliable transport through the production line

The way you want it

You decide how far we accompany you in your use of the transport system. There are three possibilities. If you like, we will supply the individual components, so that the customer can carry out configuration and assembly himself. Likewise, a complete system can be ordered with assembly by STEIN, but without integrated control. The third option is the delivery of a complete STEIN system with control – the ideal all-inclusive version for customers who want to be up and running as quickly as possible.

The production of the future. What determines a STEIN transport system?

In times of Industry 4.0, production is changing systematically. Topics such as batch size 1, product variance, networking, process oriented production steps are important requirements that a transfer system must fulfill in the future. It is important to consider processes as a whole when converting them. Here STEIN has already implemented many solutions and is working on many more.
