Schneeberger Continues to Lead the Way!
In 1923 when Schneeberger was first founded, the focus was on manufacturing tool sharpening equipment for the woodworking industry. However, in 1948 its attention turned to the linear motion industry as we first developed and produced linear guideways and roller tables, based on customer drawings.
Since that time, Schneeberger has been looked upon as an innovator and leader in combination technology, combining linear guideways with integrated encoders and/or precision gear racks, saving our customers assembly & alignment time, and the cost of auxiliary mounting hardware. Schneeberger introduced its first Monorail with integrated linear encoder in 1992. That product is now known as AMS (Advanced Measuring System). A handful of other companies have introduced “me-too” alternatives in the years since, but none come close to our application expertise and installed customer base.
Again in 2005 the first Miniature Rail with an integrated scale (MINISCALE) was introduced and most recently in 2016 the first MINISLIDE (MSQSSCALE) hit the market. All combining accuracy, guidance and space saving advantages in one! As the company enters it 96th year in business under new leadership, our CEO Mr. Stefan Hanke continues the mission of providing our current customers and perspective customers with the best products and services to build machines that are both economically and technologically advanced. Our goal is to grow sustainably and to shape our future independently!
