Keeping a finger on the pulse of the industry – we were at ACHEMA 2018!

The process industry is the innovation driver of the global economy, and the trendsetter for numerous branches of industry. The majority of global value creation chains benefit from the accomplishments of chemistry, biotechnology and process technology in some way or other.

The main platform of the process industry both now and in the future is ACHEMA. Nowhere else does the pulse of our industry beat more rapidly, intensively, actively, innovatively or internationally: ACHEMA is the pioneering, leading trade fair for all areas of the process industry – it provides an overall view of the latest engineering trends and is a technology platform with global significance.

PSA feeding systems

Our history

PSA was established in 2011 as a subsidiary of RNA GmbH. RNA is a company which was established on the market in 1972, and in the 40 years since this time it has become one of the world’s biggest and most important suppliers of vibration transport systems. Feeding systems for all kinds of industries are manufactured in Germany (3 locations), Switzerland, England and Spain by a total of around 300 employees

The systems made by PSA were added to the RNA product range in 2011. PSA is the authority for pharmaceutical systems. Top quality vibratory sorting bowls are manufactured by a powerful team at the Schwäbisch Hall location, whereby it is always ensured that customer requirements are met in their entirety. Electropolished surfaces with roughness depth of 0.4μ can be achieved, and it is ensured that the material is consistently traceable. Of course, standard versions can also be ordered.

Quality has top priority at PSA, as it does throughout the group of companies. This is ensured by having highly trained employees and consistent implementation of the QM system. Of course, this includes detailed specifications and an independent department which checks every component prior to delivery. The machine functions are simulated using appropriate devices in order to carry out realistic testing.

Yours, Fritz Kreft & Benedict Borggreve

We stand for

innovative and reliable products

The headquarters of RNA subsidiary PSA is in Schwäbisch Hall, right in the middle of “Packaging Valley, Germany”. PSA manufactures feeding systems that satisfy the highest of pharmaceutical demands for the mechanical engineering companies in the area. The same extremely high quality and reliability demands which have been fulfilled by the RNA Group for decades also apply to PSA.

RNA components are regarded as the standard within the industry because of their performance capability and wide range of products, and represent the basis for reliable and high-performance feeding systems in mechanical engineering worldwide.

The high quality of RNA feeding systems has been recognised and they are characterised by their extraordinary reliability, which represents a combination of expertise, many years of experience and innovative technology. The group produces almost 2,000 systems every year. We develop solutions for demanding tasks such as high feeding capacity, complicated workpiece geometries and/or accurate pre-positioning. This is how we became the technology and market leader.

Top quality

Our quality is guaranteed by means of structured order processing and a defined production process, which represent the basis for continuous improvement. Quality by means of motivation and conviction.

Customer satisfaction

The customer is the main focus of our thinking in everything that we do. We develop an intensive partnership with our customers which is more just than a normal customer relationship.

Innovation

Our feeding systems are subject to continuous further development by means of continuous improvement, and we offer our customers new perspectives which give them a competitive advantage. PSA feeding systems are the leading technology on the market.

Service

We provide quick reaction times, short delivery times and global service. We provide the technological expertise that is needed, therefore safeguarding the availability of the feeding system at the customer’s.
