Marco, Sales Director of Sales South at Digmesa, sees the source for success and stability in a readiness for innovation and adaption to the market.

Marco, I heard you have been working at Digmesa for thirty years now, congratulations!

Can you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your job here?

30 years ago, while looking for new work experience, I met Heinz Plüss, founder of Digmesa AG, who immediately conveyed his enthusiasm for a product that was at that time little known on the market: the turbine (or paddle) flowmeter for low flows.

So I started marketing these products in Italy, later to be joined by Spain, Portugal and South America.

What has changed during these years, what is the situation now and what do you expect for Digmesa in the future?

Over the years, both customers and applications have grown, and in some cases, what had been a niche product has become a mass market product. 

Thanks to this, Digmesa‘s entire structure has adapted to keep up with the markets, with a constantly evolving sales department. We invested in R&D with new products and materials that comply with international standards, also with an increasingly automated production, and a personalised customer service.

Can you give us an idea of the changes in order patterns and customer management? Is this becoming more flexible and cooperative, what is the general trend here?

Over the years we have learned to match the increasing demands of the markets, and we will continue to do so with motivation and determination. 

At the moment Digmesa is handling the shortage of components excellently, which means we have no delays in deliveries.

Stefan Schneider, CEO of Digmesa, talks about agility, automation and digitalization.

Stefan, can you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your job at Digmesa?

After my studies in engineering I started as a development engineer 20 years ago. Shortly after my employment, I got the chance to take on the position of head of development. In this position I was allowed to expand and reorganize the development department. 

During my work as a developer, I was able to accompany many of the products that Digmesa sells today from the beginning to the production phase. It still fills me with pride when I see these products today and recognize my part in the success of Digmesa.

I have been managing Digmesa AG since 2017. In my daily work I try, together with all employees, to further develop the company and create a solid basis for the future. The consideration of the Digmesa values and the ideas of the founder Heinz Plüss are extremely important to me.

What has changed during these years, what is the situation now and what do you expect for Digmesa in the future?

Digmesa AG has grown significantly over the past 20 years. Today, Digmesa AG is more diversified and much broader than it used to be. Digmesa AG has always understood how to tackle the necessary changes and therefore has developed itself in a very positive manner. Today, for example, we are much more agile and much closer to the customer than before. We have also increased the degree of automation and digitalization in the processes. We will move on this way in the future. Thanks to our focus on the value stream we will continue to increase efficiency, customer benefit and quality. Despite all past and future changes, we put great importance to respect our corporate values. As in the past, we want to be a reliable, competent and fair partner for our customers, our suppliers and last but not least for our employees.

Can you give us an idea of the changes in order patterns and customer management? Is this becoming more flexible and cooperative, what is the general trend here?

The trend that customers order their goods at a short notice and expect delivery on the exact day has lasted for a long time. We have adjusted our processes to these customer requirements in recent years. The pandemic, which has been very prevalent over the past two years, has slowed this trend. Due to the difficulties in procurement and deliveries, we had to look for solutions together with our customers to manage these difficulties. Tanks to our closeness to the customers and the increased exchange of information, we were able to receive orders much earlier, which was very important and helpful for our ability to deliver on time. However, we assume that this is more of a temporary situation and that short-term orders will return to normal.

Would you share some insider knowledge with us? Which new possibilities does the NANO flow meter offer in comparison to the classic FHKSC?

The flow sensor FHKSC has been the standard product for use in domestic coffee machines for many years. With the nano sensor we have realized a smaller, more flexible alternative we are very proud of. The advantages of the new product approach are obvious: thanks to its small design and position independence, the nano can be placed anywhere in the coffee machine. The coffee machine manufacturer has a significantly higher degree of freedom in this regard. The measuring range and the measuring accuracy are comparable for both products. The most important technical advantage is the measurement resolution, which is many times higher with the nano. 

The nano is the perfect choice when a small design, position independence or a higher resolution is required. But sometimes it is just the technical fascination for this innovative product that is decisive!

Interview with Thomas Studer, Director of Sales and Marketing at Digmesa

Thomas, Director of Sales and Marketing at Digmesa, stresses the importance of focusing on local providers and a supplier-customer relationship based on respect.

Thomas, would you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your job at Digmesa?

I was born in Biel, the bilingual and multicultural world capital of the watch industry. And since my studies I have been dealing with measurement technology. Be it with X-rays, oscillating beams, laser light, pistons or, since Digmesa, with turbine technology. For 9 years at Digmesa, I‘ve been thrilled every day to discover new applications with the team and to tackle individual measurement solutions together with customers. I love sport and enjoy nature, and for a short time I have been enthusiastic about cross-country skiing in the forests of the Jura.

What do you think about the current scarcity of raw materials and what will this mean for your customers?

A very good question. And personally, I think we should again focus more on the values and advantages of local providers. Digmesa has maintained this philosophy since it was founded over 38 years ago and has therefore been spared from bottlenecks so far.

Can you give us an idea of the changes in order patterns and customer relations?

Is this becoming more flexible and cooperative, what is the general trend here? The entire supply chain is currently under enormous pressure. This also promotes the exchange with the customers and so today, we have long-term order prospects which greatly improves the security of supply for the customer. And I have noticed that the supplier is increasingly viewed as a partner. A declaration of respect that makes me even mor excited.

Jean Bouteille France – On the Cutting Edge with our EPI!

Probably our most interesting customer innovation lately; our collaboration with Jean Bouteille in France. They equip stores with liquid dispensers, containing a variety of either oils, wines and/or vinegars. Customers fill the bottles they brought with them themselves and pay according to volume.

Although not high-priced liquids, the whole process is of high quality and leaves a low environmental footprint while increasing the purchasing power of the consumer at the same time. Moreover, as an option, Jean Bouteille replaces the used, dirty bottles by new ones in the stores with their dispensers. Customers can save money, reduce their waste and are free to choose the quantity they wish.

To sum up, Jean Bouteille associates two modes of ecological consumption to save the consumer money: the bulk system and the returnable bottle system.

Our EPI was installed between said container and the filler neck. Its oval wheels guarantee an optimal measurement of the viscous liquids.

We keep you posted. For more in-depth questions or queries, please contact our Thank you.

Digmesa’s new and unique flow rate measurement sensor – the CombiSensor – combines three measurands: temperature, conductance and flow rate.

In recent years, electrical conductivity as a measurand has rapidly developed to become a general quality indicator for water quality. In sectors such as water filters, heating filling or cooling circuits, threshold values are prescribed by law or at least recommended. In addition, the units are becoming ever smaller and electrical conductivity is often needed along with temperature and flow rate for process control. Temperature-compensated conductometry is frequently called for.
Digmesa’s response: the CombiSensor.

Digmesa’s CombiSensor reduces your price pressure!
The new CombiSensor offers you further rationalisation and simplification of recording and processing measurement values. The benefits for you: more compact units, reduced cable length, lower installation effort and a competitive edge.

To sum up in brief:

  • 3-in-One CombiSensor
  • Measures electrical conductivity, flow rate and temperature
  • Electrical conductivity from 0 to 20 mS/cm (temperature-compensated)
  • Flow rate from 0.04 to 30 l/min
  • Analog outputs or RS 485 – Modbus; various process connections

Unique and only from Digmesa!

LoRaWAN instead of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth Solution?

Water filter cartridges whose resin binds the undesirable calcium ions must be replaced after a defined flow volume. Larger cartridge-based water softeners trigger an alarm once the maximum capacity has been reached. As a general rule, an indication of the necessary filter change is only visible or audible in the immediate vicinity of the filter. Remote alarm initiation would remedy this problem. The methods commonly employed up to now for remote reading of flow rates and/or residual filter capacity and remote alarm initiation are unsatisfactory: the costs of implementation via a GSM connection are too high, the app solution via Bluetooth has a range of just a few metres and access to a WLAN gateway is insecure. Remote monitoring of filters via LoRaWAN networks offers an intelligent, cost-effective solution.
