GILDEMEISTER is one of the major manufacturers of machine tools in the turning and milling area world-wide. Apart from the "turning" and "milling" technologies, it also offers modern trend-setting "ultrasonic" and "laser" technologies. The delivery programme of the companies within the GILDEMEISTER group includes both low-cost machines that are sold on a large scale in the global markets and high-tech machines for highly complex production tasks. GILDEMEISTER meets market requirements with a range of innovative and completely new products, offering its customers trend-setting solutions.
The lathes from GILDEMEISTER, GRAZIANO and FAMOT, the milling and laser machines from DECKEL MAHO and the ultrasonic machines from SAUER perform a large variety of machining tasks every day throughout the whole world: they produce high-precision components for the car industry and process cases for mobile phones in the telecommunication industry. With the highest precision, they produce mouldings for ski bindings, machine engine components in the aerospace industry, artificial hip joints in the medical field, and laser micro-cavities for the electrical industry. Thanks to the newly developed process of ultrasonic-supported machining of hard-brittle materials, such as glass, high-tech ceramics or sintered metal carbide, GILDEMEISTER pushes further ahead into the "advanced materials" segment. These are just a few examples of the versatility of our machines in the various industries.
To remain successful in the market, customers expect highly reliable products and comprehensive services. To safe-guard our future success, we have optimised our product portfolio and have developed further the group's orientation towards a full-line company in the turning, milling and laser/ultrasonic technologies as well as in services.
The GILDEMEISTER group has the industry's most complete sales and services network. More than 5,000 employees in 59 group-owned sales and services companies are ready to serve our customers in 28 countries world-wide. The sales and services network stands out because of its consistent market proximity, direct selling covering all areas and customer-related services.
