Ultrasonic sensorsNews Update: STW Wins AGCO/Fendt Supplier of The Year Award !

It’s well accepted that the agriculture industry must double its output in the next 30 years to sustain the world’s population growth. The sector is ramping up the use of complex machines and sophisticated systems to manage automation and increase productivity. Machinery surveillance, telemetry services and fault identification in complex machines have become increasingly important. Given the short window of opportunity for critical activities such as harvesting and planting, dependability of mobile electronics is vital. High machine costs and ever-shorter cropping times mean that downtimes and repair periods simply cannot be tolerated.

Through our extensive work in the agricultural sector, STW understands your needs and works with you to maximize your investment in high technology.
