Since our registration in 2001, Steck has endeavoured to bring our customers the most advanced, modern & reliable equipment possible.  Our focus on reliability and longevity is proven by the fact that our first ever Dimension Depositor, installed in 2002, is still in operation today!

2008 saw the launch of the first ‘falling pin pizza sauce head’, used to print tomato sauce directly onto pre-cooked pizza bases.  Further development has allowed our customers to use this technology to also print pesto, garlic butter & mascarpone onto pizzas.  In 2016 we took the same technology and made it smaller - the ‘mayo head’ allows our customers to print mayo cleanly and precisely onto sliced bread.  This stops the product trailing over the crusts, eliminating rejection and therefore reducing waste.

Jump forward to 2018 and the unveiling of the DR1, Stecks’ first robotics solution, developed to apply sauce to spareribs, fully integrated with its own vision & safety system.  As the only roll-up delta robot of its kind the technology was quickly evolved and manipulated for the sandwich industry.  The first DR2 was installed in 2019 to pump and apply starch to wraps.  The slightly smaller DR3 quickly followed, with the new triangular shape allowing them to run simultaneously ‘face-to-face’ on the same line – perfect for tight spaces.  Our patented end effectors are now used for applications such as match halving, wet & dry sandwich lidding and turning.  Watch this space to see the launch of what we are working  on next.


The Steck Challenge

Steck challenges any other depositor manufacturer to match our performance in terms of accuracy, air consumption and speed of cleaning. We will gladly take part in depositor demonstration trials at your site, with your product and with no obligation.

2 Years Warranty

All of our depositors come with a free 2-year parts and labour warranty as standard.  Our unique ‘cassette’ style engine means less down time should a problem arise and no expensive engineer call-out charges.  We also offer an intensive care package to keep you covered once your warranty has expired.


At Steck we are dedicated to innovation.  Through our research & development program we look to provide our customers with the newest technology tailored to the food industry environment.  If you have a new product to deposit why not call us and see how we can help.
