Steinert feature is designed for data access

Sorting technology provider says Steinert.view offers “real-time data visualization” for sorting lines.

Steniert GmbH, a German-based sorting technology provider, describes its Steinert.view feature as “a flexible and reliable monitoring solution for Steinert sensor-based sorting machines.”

The company says the new feature gives users insight into the availability and output of individual machines, allowing them to learn more about the condition of their applications or sorting facility. “For the first time ever, this detailed machine data is accessible at any time and from any location."

Designed as a mobile-first app, Steinert.view has been designed to provide users with an overview of performance and output data. “At the same time, complex process technologies can also be visualized,” says Steinert, adding that “filter functions mean users never lose track of things and can easily identify areas where problems are arising or potential lies untapped.”

The magnetic and optical sorting company says Steinert.view “resulted from working in close collaboration with customers and extensive testing.” The technology is available for all new Steinert sensor sorting units as an app for common screen sizes in the Apple App store and the Google Play store, says the company. It is available as an upgrade for machines constructed in 2018 and later, Steinert adds.

“The unavoidable approach used to date of walking through the entire facility can now be replaced with precise interventions and efficient deployment of staff,” Steinert says of the benefits of Steinert.view. “Problems can be proactively countered by making changes to metrics such as belt cover or compressed air consumption. Before service staff even get to the machine, they know what work they can expect to be doing and can use mobile access to get other staff started without delay. This cuts downtimes and improves speed and mobility.”

The technology provider says Steinert.view can help improve sorting performance. “Changing the grain size distribution can impact on the product unit as can material distribution,” the company says. “Comparing nominal and actual values in a graph reveals where action needs to be taken right away. In this way, the data can be used to visualize the effectiveness of measures so that the user can get close to a machine’s optimum operating point.”

The company will display Steinert.view at the IFAT 2022 trade fair in Munich in late May and early June at its exhibit area located in Hall B6, Booth 551.
