For more than 180 years WaldrichSiegen has been committed to developing technologies that set standards worldwide. Constant innovations made WaldrichSiegen a technology leader in the industry.
In 1951, WaldrichSiegen was the first manufacturer of machine tools that introduced portal milling machines "Made in Germany" in the market. In the 60's WaldrichSiegen equipped its machines with hydrostatic guideways. These machines designed for heavy cutting are able to move friction-free and reach an unlimited life-span due to its freedom from mechanical wear.
The new development regarding our portal milling machine concept, the ProfiMill, in 2008, is a further milestone with regard to the milling machine technology. Here the masterhead concept for power performance up to 120 kW is implemented on all machines. This concept is to increase the availability and productivity of the machines significantly.
WaldrichSiegen is a leading developer in the field of roll grinding machines as well. The fully hydrostatic grinding axes, the patented B-axis for the tangential approach of the grinding wheel to the roll and our roll measuring system characterize the WaldrichSiegen roll grinding machines.
