Successful Business Year 2017
SIEB & MEYER achieves a sales increase of 47 %
SIEB & MEYER AG looks back on a successful business year 2017: Compared to 2016 the Lueneburg-based company reports a sales increase of 47 % and has thus completed one of the most successful business years in the company's history. Numerous extensions of the product range and product optimizations enabled the company to further expand existing target markets or enter new ones.
"On the one hand, it was possible to strengthen our position in the existing markets due to the good economic situation of our target industries," Torsten Blankenburg, CTO at SIEB & MEYER AG, explains. "On the other hand, we were able to enter new target markets by expanding our product range. Hence, the company had a good basis to continue its growth." For instance, the business unit "CNC Controls for PCB Processing" successfully presented the new CNC control generation CNC 95.00 at the trade fair HKPCA 2017 in China.
The business field drive technology also presented numerous innovations, most notably product optimizations regarding process monitoring and safety technology: Now, all frequency converters and servo amplifiers of series SD2x are equipped with the function load indicator as standard. In addition, SIEB & MEYER provides the users of the drive system SD2 with two sensorless functions "Safe Frequency Monitor" (SFM) and "Safe Limited Output Frequency" (SLOF).
Furthermore, SIEB & MEYER offers new versions for the frequency converters of series SD2B and SD2M: The small SD2B plus convinces with additional functions and an IP20 housing. The new SD2M version enables new application scenarios for the three-level technology as the device's DC voltage supply can also be combined with regenerative power supply units/mains inverters.
"In 2017, we did not only work on further expanding our product range, but also on optimizing our processes for the benefit of our customers," Torsten Blankenburg explains. "Last but not least, we also improved our external presentation." The relaunched SIEB & MEYER website is considerably clearer and more user-friendly. Additionally, existing and potential customers are provided with a new, comprehensive catalog for servo amplifiers/frequency converters of series SD2x as of late.
