  • Experience since 1965
  • We do the complete engineering (mechanical, electrical, software) ourselves, with highly qualified, motivated personnel and state-of-the-art planning software
  • We manufacture the core components of our machines ourselves
  • Pre-commissioning of the assembled machines in our factories before delivery
  • Installation guidance and commissioning at your facility, performed by highly compentent people
  • Continuous and targeted research and development (in-house technical center with test and demonstration machines)
  • Strategic cooperation with the leading manufacturers of cutting and grinding wheels and saw blades
  • Comprehensive know-how for cutting systems and grinding systems
  • Intensive cooperation with other leading technology suppliers (e.g., for testing and analysis systems).
  • Broad technological knowledge and process know-how
  • We deliver the highest quality. We are ISO 9001: 2015 certified

In-house Test and Development Machines


Since establishing our steel cutting and grinding machines division more than 50 years ago, BRAUN has developed into a global technology leader in this field. Significant milestones (see below) illustrate this development. Targeted research and development, our own engineering capacities for all areas, in-house manufacturing capabilities, a team of well-trained and motivated professionals and strategic cooperation with various technology partners form the basis for our comprehensive expertise in cutting and grinding - all to the benefit of our customers.
