Top machine makers know that the performance of a machine used in any industry is directly proportional to the quality of the rotary joints installed within the equipment. For this reason, they trust Christian Maier for the company’s reliable and high-quality rotary unions.

Christian Maier designs products that meet the most demanding machine applications. Backed by German quality, the family-owned company is reinforcing its distribution network to better serve original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in Asia.

Maintaining fully owned factories in Germany, Italy and China, Christian Maier leads in developing rotary joints intended for applications such as cold and hot water, hot oil of up to 390 degrees Celsius and steam of up to 250 degrees, among others. Applied mainly in the paper, plastic and non-woven industries, Christian Maier components are certified by the ATEX directive as secure electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres. ATEX refers to two European Union directives for controlling explosive atmospheres.

“Quality and safety are very important for us,” says Florian Maier, CEO and managing director. “Every single rotary joint assembled in our factories goes through a very strict quality control process. We approve each item before we pack and deliver it to the customer.”

Expanding its operations to offer a catalogue of 1,000 standard items excluding customised solutions to OEMs in China and across Asia, Christian Maier welcomes local distributors to help it quickly cover the vast Asian market. Offering OEMs German-engineered solutions at different price points, the 92-year-old company also provides installation support and worldwide service through its various repair sites within subsidiary locations including China.

“We want to set the standards for excellent qualities, and so we want to grow,” Maier says. “We offer our customers the full support throughout the whole lifetime of the product. All around the globe, highly skilled employees are happy to help customers with our expertise.”
