By introducing the newest construction methods and manufacturing materials, we have been able to successively reduce the material consumption for manufacturing HST products over the last few years. Because of this, we have been able to offer our extremely robust and durable products at significantly lower prices on the market. At the same time, we have been able to increase efficiency and improve protection. HST machines and systems provide comprehensive monitoring to ensure continuous operation and function. If there is a threat of failure due to a fault, they communicate autonomously with the control centre and allow for an early response. In order to actually fulfil each customer‘ s needs, we deliver our machines and systems tailormade, but on the basis of standards commonly known in the field and which are easily expandable. That allows for maximum flexibility and planning reliability for our customers. We call the newest level of the continuing development at HST „SMART machines“. This refers to products that are subject to an increased level of stress during operation and thus require proportionate reliability. These machines are equipped with special functionality („intelligence“) so they complete their tasks even better and they have standard IT applications that allow continuous data recording and „on board“ communication.
