History since 1923
With the first linear guideways conceived and developed by SCHNEEBERGER over 70 years ago, the foundation was established for the worldwide linear technology of today. Our original guidelines for the construction of linear guideways defined the criteria for load bearing capacity, reliability and economy. These SCHNEEBERGER guidelines quickly became industry standards which are still valid today.
The same maxims which were the basis for our success continue to dominate our thinking and our actions: the spirit of innovation; uncompromising quality demands; and the ambition to time and again be in a position to offer our customers new, technically and economically superior products.
Then as now, the name SCHNEEBERGER is a synonym for modern linear technology all over the world.
In 2023, the SCHNEEBERGER Group will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company's history.
