About us

In the first decades after its foundation in 1946, Schwanog gained a excellent reputation on the market as a manufacturer of high-quality carbide tools and measuring instruments as well as in mechanical engineering. In 1990, the decision was made to focus on the production of tool changing systems. The considerable success affirmed this strategically courageous and important decision. Our self-developed insert tools and systems are always based on a Schwanog holder and a Schwanog tool blank into which part-specific contours can be individually ground and eroded. The special feature here: we can produce batch sizes of 3 to 50 pieces. And we do this in the shortest possible time with the highest quality and cost efficiency. Within just a few years, this innovative capability has made us one of the world's leading manufacturers of exchangeable inserts in this market segment, with production locations worldwide. Schwanog has more than 100 qualified specialists and continuously invests in production and process optimization. With the wealth of experience gained from manufacturing well over 100,000 tools according to customer drawings, we are always in a position to supply individually manufactured insert tools quickly and flexibly in the shortest possible time.

In 75 years we have developed from manufacturing Black Forest Christmas tree ornaments and knitting needles to producing customized grooving tools. That's something to be proud of! I am incredibly proud that, thanks to our highly motivated team, we have been able to build a globally active and successful company with four manufacturing locations. Today, always supported by innovative solutions, entrepreneurial courage and enthusiasm for change, we continue to drive our international expansion in the market.
