Since 150 years we manufacture large and reliable machine tools for many fields of industry world wide. The merger between SCHIESS and the powerful SMTCL-group created new chances in development, sales and production of our machines for both companies.
Machine tools are behind all technical progress and bring the world closer.
SCHIESS feels constrained to the creed of our name-giver (Ernst Schiess) and manufactures machine tools with impressive dimensions and continuously increased performance parameters and accuracies.
Innovations and high accuracies stand also for the strength of WEMA.
Founded in 1857, by the two machine- and foundry foremen Heinrich Billeter and Wilhelm Klunz, the company became famous with their single column planer, shown 1889 at the world exhibition in Paris. In 1931, the company designed and constructed the first worldwide grinding machine. Since then, mainly portal milling machines and slideway grinding machines have been produced in the Werkzeugmaschinenfabrik
