Boasting a profound understanding of linear and profiled rail guides, as well as measuring systems for linear motion, SCHNEEBERGER linear technology has been at the pinnacle of the industry for a century.
Over the course of a century, the name SCHNEEBERGER has established itself as a synonym for innovation, extreme precision, and excellent quality. Our broad expertise encompasses linear guides, measuring systems, and racks to high-performance ball screws and mineral casting, not to mention our high-precision positioning systems. These can be applied under atmospheric conditions as well as in a vacuum.
Our presence is truly global, with an extensive network of sales companies and partners always within reach. However, this is only one aspect of our strength. Our true backbone consists of our dedicated, customer-oriented, and unique employees who propel us to the apex of the world.
We take immense pride in being a global leader in numerous application fields, including the machine tool industry, semiconductor industry, medical technology, bioscience, and robotics. Our pioneering spirit is also reflected in our status as one of the first and largest providers of crossed roller guides and integrated measuring systems. At SCHNEEBERGER linear technology we are committed to continuous evolution and delivering the best to our customers.
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.
