Automated assembly and soldering technology

Competence in automated soldering technology

At SITEK, we manufacture around 700 million components per year on 49 rotary transfer machines with automated parts supply and removal. The majority of these pieces consist of a metallic component into which a carbide component is pressed. In this process, form-fit and force-fit interference fits are produced. The components are then separated in the vibratory conveyors.

Since these components are available in all possible geometries, our special know-how regarding the correct feeding of the individual components in the correct position is of great importance. We achieve this through a special combination of camera and laser measurement technology. We also apply this camera-controlled form of visualization 100% during assembly.

Slats, as well as rally or truck spikes, are usually exposed to high stresses. In order to optimally meet these loads, our carbide pins – in addition to being pressed – are also soldered. Directly afterwards, we carry out an energy-saving tempering process.


Our name stands for safety

Literally speaking: SI-TEK stands for “Sicherheits-Technik” or “Safety Technology” and is a top priority at our company for a good reason. After all, our products are used wherever safety plays a decisive role. At SITEK, you get the complete vertical range of manufacture from development to our own carbide and sleeve production to the finished stud. In this way, we cover the entire value chain in carbide production and offer you exactly the quality you want in every product.

Thanks to our own carbide production, we are able to match the material properties exactly to the respective application. For example, we have developed special types of studs that – in addition to their use in winter tires – are also suitable for bicycle tires and hoof nails. Special SITEK carbide tools, on the other hand, are used on milling machines, for example, to remove road surfaces – such as road markings – or to roughen and clean floors. These tools are highly resistant to wear and are designed for economical use.
