For over 100 years ideas and innovations in cylindrical grinding



SCHAUDT is one of the world's brands with the longest experience in the engineering of machines for the precision grinding of camshafts and axes in the automotive sector as well as for grinding of machine parts for the printing industry and other parts for heavy machine construction. 

What began in 1906 with the legendary Unger machine factory in Stuttgart, developed over the course of a century to become the center of excellence known as the UNITED GRINDING Group. That's more than 100 years in which to develop ideas and innovations, which now enable a machine precision in a class of its own. Today we are very proud that much of the world's automotive engineering industry depends on the innovative power, precision and reliability of SCHAUDT machines.
