Foundation stone of Swiss quality mechanical engineering
Starting out as a metalware business, Karl Mägerle jointly founded Gebrüder Mägerle GmbH in 1929 with his brother. This was followed by the acquisition of the Fritz Wunderli AG grinding machine business three years later, enabling the company's entry into the grinding industry. This laid the foundation for an unparalleled success story in Swiss quality mechanical engineering.
A design principle remains valid
Mägerle set the most important milestone in 1980. Its flat and profile grinding machines - now established worldwide - were built with a fully enclosed hydrostatic guide system for the first time. This ground-breaking design principle still distinguishes Mägerle's cutting-edge technology today, and forms the unique basis for the unsurpassed results in precision, cost effectiveness, reliability and long working life.
Recognised performance in demanding conditions
Mägerle enjoys a long-established reputation around the world for flat and profile grinding machines. With their equally high removal capacity and machining precision, they are recognised on the market as top-class machines. They demonstrate their performance and versatility daily in demanding applications in the turbine industry, the automotive and aircraft industry, the hydraulics industry and the energy sector, as well as machine tools and toolmaking. All industries that place the highest demands on mechanical, ergonomic and operational qualities.
