More than 90 years old is the family business of Hans C. Schmidt u. Sohn, which was founded in 1925 as a company trading in machinery and equipment and shop fitments. The company originally focused on the large number of coffee importing businesses situated in Bremen, but many other branches were added quickly. Today the company supplies a wide variety of machines and equipment for the food, chemical and plastics industry. Most of these are large units serving a variety of uses: cleaning, feeding, conveying, transporting, storing, shaking, metering, mixing, drying, weighing, grinding, packing or sorting – there are few fields for which Schmidt u. Sohn does not have the right solution, as the company also holds agencies for well-known German and European producers.
One of the most important supply activities of Schmidt u. Sohn is metal separation and metal detection. In this field the company is agent for a Bavarian manufacturer which has the right metal separator and detector for almost any use. Where ready packaged food products must be inspected or incoming bulk consignments cleaned, Sesotec always can supply the right machine. Complementing the range of products are magnets and magnet systems and X-Ray Scanners of the newest generation.
Mixing drums and tumble-mixers are available for mixing plastic pellets and all other similar media. The range of the French manufacturer Lazareth also includes mixing machines up to a standard size of 10 m³, in addition to laboratory mixers, worm conveyors and metering equipment.
Pellets, granules and powders are also conveyed by the DA CAPO vacuum suction machine. Easy to move flexible hoses ensure that free-flowing material is transported over distances up to 15 m and 10 m high to feed injection moulding machines, grinders, weighing machines and tanks. Flexible spiral conveyors and worm conveyors are on the supply range as well as belt conveyors, trough feeders and vibratory tables and packers.
Central to the product range of the company remain coffee grinders for specialised stores, coffee shops, hotels and for industrial use. In addition to these, grinders for cereals, spices, linseed, poppy and graters for nuts and cheese are also supplied.Central to the product range of the company remain coffee grinders for specialised stores, coffee shops, hotels and for industrial use.
