  • 2016 
    Extension of the machine program with a manual CNC supported grinding machine W11-CNC.
  • 2014  
    Enhancement of the machine programme with a basic CNC circular grinding machine with a manual mode. Optimally implementable for the production of individual parts, prototype construction, training centres and smaller production operations.
  • 2012
    Enhancement of the tried-and-tested WUG21, quadruple turrets for inner grinding, new C-axis software for out-of-round grinding. Upgrading of all assemblies to the latest technology, all assemblies are universally implementable.
  • 2008 
    The new building in Neckartailfingen with a production area of 3800 square metres is moved into. Through the expansion, we receive even better production and development opportunities for customer-orientated solutions. Development of a new torque B-axis for fully automated pivoting of grinding wheelhead to less than 2 seconds of pivoting precision.
  • 2007
    The world innovation WUG21 is launched on the market. The revolutionary universal circular grinding machine.
