Your competent partner for paint stripping systems

About ourselves

SMiTO GmbH has been intensely involved in the design and development of systems for the chemical stripping of paint for many years.

Besides customized special systems, over the course of time, we have also developed and manufactured a product line of standard systems.

In order to expand our activities in this challenging field, in the year 2014, the product area of "Paint Stripping Systems" was spun off and ESC-SMiTO GmbH founded.

Together with a cooperation partner in the area of process engineering, new concepts for increasingly ecological and resource-conserving paint stripping solutions were developed. The company headquarters and manufacturing facilities of ESC-SMiTO GmbH were then located at our cooperation partner in Geislingen, near Balingen. After a successful launch, ESC-SMiTO GmbH became more and more specialized in the area of immersion bath paint removal. In the meantime, it has manufactured more than 100 TB400 dip tanks. In doing so, we attach special importance to high quality and reliable suppliers from the vicinity.

In order to exploit synergies for the further development of our line of systems, in July of 2018, we relocated our company back to Tübingen. The close cooperation with the parent company, SMiTO GmbH, and our many years of know-how in plant technology make it possible to develop new concepts in the field of paint stripping systems.

Parallel to relocating our company, its name was changed to SMiTO-Technic GmbH.

SMiTO-Technic will continue providing system technology you can rely on.

One user of a MTB1000/2B multi-tank system had particularly difficult conditions for the decoating of workpieces. Rectangular plates had to be decoated, for which SMiTO-Technic manufactured a special product carrier. This enabled an optimal loading, but the standard version of the circulation was not optimal due to the high packing density. This has a decisive influence on how many workpieces can be stripped in the basins in which time.

In order to optimize the decoating result for the customer, SMiTO-Technic developed an improved circulation system and installed it in the customer's plant.

Now we have received enthusiastic feedback from the customer. By installing an improved circulation system, one third more workpieces can now be stripped in a shorter time and the service life of the chemicals has almost doubled.


If novel surface coatings have to been removed safely and gently, the stripping in immersion tanks is unbeatable. Thanks to a modular coating removal system, in-house coating removal can be traded safely and economically for many companies.
