Sonderhoff Engineering – custom-made Dispensing systems!
Sonderhoff engineering, as a part of the Sonderhoff enterprise group, is the centre of excellence for the development and production of dispensing systems and automated systems for foam sealing, gluing and potting using polymer reagents.
Our customers produce more than 300,000,000 seals a year using our systems – more than a million every working day.
At our location in Dornbirn/Austria, we develop dispensing systems and automated solutions that can be integrated flexibly into many different developments. Our core competence therefore includes developing, consulting and selling of the appropriate technology for a particular situation, regardless whether you want to operate a Sonderhoff Engineering system as a stand-alone unit or to integrate it into a complex production line.
New product innovations
It goes for our new machines too: Their reliability and long service life not only ensures a good return on your investment – it spares your time, nerves and resources. Because our machines will run and run and run: 90% of our customers produce using our machines for more than 10 years!
Dosing cell 3E: economic – efficient – ecological
The new Sonderhoff dispensing cell 3E – Economic, Efficient, Ecological – is a 2-component low-pressure mixing and dispensing system for use in partly automated production for foam sealing, gluing and potting. With this system, fluid, medium- and high-viscosity plastics such as polyurethane or other polymer materials are exactly processed.
World novelty: DM 402 / 403 CC
The new mixing and dispensing system DM 402 / 403 CC with medium pressure technology produces a predominantly closed-cell foam structure. With this, it closes the gap between the predominantly open-cell polyurethane foam and the closed-cell silicone foam and is characterised by a very low water absorption rate – at a markedly more attractive price compared to silicone and similar 1-component PUR alternatives.
The SMART-L dispensing cell with thin film degasification
With help from thin-film degassing, air intrusions are completely evacuated from the potting in the storage tank, for a clear and bubble-free encapsulation of the LEDs - and thereby optimum potting transparency.
Through the employment of aliphatic isocyanates, Fermadur® LED potting systems are highly resistant against UV radiation and have a very high light transmission of up to 80%. At the same time they demonstrate self-healing properties after scratching - the potting surface returns of its own accord into its original unscratched state!
Sonderhoff Engineering – the firm
Almost 100 employees work at our new location in Dornbirn on Lake Constance. They achieved a total turnover in 2015 of 22M EUR.
The core competence is “customised engineering”: we specify the optimal system configuration for your production process on the basis of our tried-and-tested modular standard build forms.
For their adjustment and implementation we offer the highest possible level of customer service: every third employee has direct customer contact, whether in sales, project management, machine set-up or services.
Our colleagues in system construction and software programming ensure continuous and totally reliable delivery. This is where our ready-to-use dispensing systems for direct integration into the production process are made – over 80 in 2015.
And so that this reliability is always provided after commission, we have all machine parts ready and available in our stores, so that even in case of repairs machine downtime can be kept to a minimum. And we’ve got it in writing that it all makes sense to do so: Sonderhoff Engineering is certified to ISO 9001:2008.
ABB, BMW, BOSCH, BSH, Camfil, Dräxlmaier, Fronius, Greif, Hella, KOSTAL, MANN+HUMMEL, Mauser, Rehau, RITTAL, Siemens, Swoboda, Valeo, Volkswagen, Weidplas, Zumtobel – some of the companies that trust our expertise and experience; something of which we are very proud.
For us, as a highly specialised and simultaneously international enterprise, knowledge networks and experience exchange are of great value – internally and externally. The Automobi-Cluster Business Upper Austria is an important platform for us in this.
All our employees are ambassadors for the Sonderhoff company. And even our entry-level employees will go on to define the shape of Sonderhoff for the future. That is why we are very happy to train up young people into specialists.
We look forward to your visit!
In 2017 we moved into our new building in Dornbirn.
