Argos Grading Systems offer precise detection of all raw board surface defects that will help the operator run the sanding machine more efficiently.

The enormous increase in production capacities and demand for higher surface quality has brought a high interest in automation of the finishing lines and both Steinemann and Argos see a high future potential in bringing the two companies’ technologies closer together.

"This cooperation strengthens our position as the leading supplier for comprehensive systems. Our goal is a close integration of our technologies in order to develop new products that will provide our customers with better monitoring and controlling of the sanded surface," says Markus Müller, vice president of Steinemann Technology.

Torr Gustavsen, managing director of Argos Solutions, adds: "With such an established partner as Steinemann our customers also benefit from a worldwide network".
