Stainless steel control elements

Stainless steel – (nice) heavy metal

We use it to eat, we sit on it, we wear it on and in our bodies, we type on it, we make small or large things with its help or we even wash our hands with it. As you can see, stainless steel has an absolutely huge range of uses. This is not surprising because of its wide range of beneficial properties.

However, one type of stainless steel is not the same as another. It may contain iron and carbon as its basic substances, but additives are placed in the alloy to increase its usefulness, depending on its field of application.

As a manufacturer of operating technology, we also use the benefits that stainless steel offers.

All the benefits at a glance

  • Stainless steel can be easily cleaned without leaving any residue and is therefore widely used in hygiene settings.

  • In contrast to other types of metal, it is simple to process in production and it is easily welded, shaped and polished.

  • Corrosion cannot affect the material either.

  • Stainless steel is also very temperature-resistant. Temperatures of up to 600°C do not cause any serious damage to it.

  • Thanks to its versatility, we can use the material to develop and manufacture operating elements for a wide variety of applications.

  • Business areas like pharmacy, laboratories or the food industry are subject to very strict hygiene regulations. They have to guarantee that workplaces and equipment can be meticulously cleaned.

    Our operating elements made of stainless steel precisely fulfil these requirements. No liquids can penetrate them and they withstand aggressive cleaning agents and disinfectants. It is therefore easy to remove dirt and germs without leaving any residue.

  • Splinters are created where wood is chopped – or lubricants or coolants. The conditions in the commercial and industrial sector are often adverse. It is then all the more important to be able to rely on the working tools that are used. They must have an appropriate tough design…

    …for example, our operating solutions made of stainless steel [summary of stainless steel products]. As they are extremely tough, they can withstand the rough conditions in an industrial setting.

    However, it is not only the construction and production sectors that pose a challenge for the working and operating materials in use. Data input takes place in the public arena too. In addition to the effects of wind and weather, vandalism is a problem. We develop particularly sturdy stainless steel solutions with appropriate anti-vandalism protection for this purpose.

  • Thanks to their clean and cool design, our operating elements are very elegant on their own merits. Would you like a unique product?
