How are micro-optical components the diameter of a hair processed? How do you move a butter cookie from an assembly line to a package without it breaking? And how can the surfaces of hip implants be milled to resemble the real joint as closely as possible? These are just a few examples of questions we deal with.
Our specialists have extensive know-how in toolholding and workholding, gripping technology and automation technology. In addition to individual high-tech components, we supply intelligent complete solutions for robot systems as well as for a wide variety of production and automation processes. Everything from a single source for individual customer applications.
Founded in 1945 by Friedrich Schunk as a small mechanical workshop, we have now evolved into an international technology company with around 3,700 employees in more than 50 countries – managed with foresight by the third family generation.
It all started in 1945 with a vision and a used lathe. That was used by Friedrich Schunk to develop a solution for virtually any mechanical task. We have held on to that pioneering spirit to this day. We love tasks that we can grow with.
We work on machines. But above all: with people. With our friendly and respectful hand in hand mentality, we support each other. We appreciate each other's actions, our impact, our work. That is how everyone can pursue their own strengths.
Quality is top priority. Our products are usually used for decades. Behind this high quality standard lies a great deal of experience and expertise, as well as a certain competitive ambition.
Technical products are only as reliable as the people who manufacture, sell and maintain them. We are committed and diligent, and we keep our promises.
When we care, we really care. Our high level of personal commitment inspires our customers and enables them to achieve their goals. We are only satisfied once we have found a compelling solution for the task at hand.
With current and long-term developments in mind, we work together to develop concepts and to find answers to the complex questions of the future.
