AboutSW Automation GmbH


SW has been setting standards for precision, economy and sustainability for more than 25 years. We are the world market leader in the field of multi- spindle machining centers for machining all kinds of materials . We have a high level of automation expertise and, as a system supplier, we equip complete production lines and factories. Customers use our systems to produce millions of components and assemblies for cars, electric vehicles, construction and agricultural machinery. Manufacturers of components for fuel cells, medical technology or aerospace also rely on the precision and economyof our systems for smaller quantities.


We at SW call ourselves Technology People because we are enthusiastic about technology and we constantly question the current state of what is technically possible and use this to develop new manufacturing solutions. As a team of around 1,200 employees , we look for and find the best solutions for our customers – worldwide. We work internationally , from locations and plants in Germany, Europe, North America and Asia. We have consistently expanded our headquarters in Waldmössingen in the Black Forest in recent years. We are passionate about success and have increased our sales more than tenfold since 1995.

We see ourselves as a team in which everyone contributes their skills, ideas and energy. We would be happy to talk to you if you are looking for a professional challenge and want to become part of the Technology People: as an apprentice, student or as a specialist or manager .



We offer our customers tailor-made production solutions , from CNC machining centers with modular automation to self-sufficient production cells to complete production systems and digital software solutions  based on machine data . We analyze each processing step in advance, simulate and virtually optimize the entire material flow with assembly steps and other systems. The result: we can calculate the costs per workpiece even before production begins.

We also help our customers to save energy in order to make a sustainable contribution to climate protection. Our four-spindle machining centers use only half as much energy as four individual machines - and with higher output.


Those who think in systems always have the whole in mind, not just the individual element that they contribute to the system. We think in systems and therefore have everything we need to develop the best manufacturing systems in the world. Thinking in systems is more than a mathematical challenge.It is humanity, motivation, courage and responsibility as well as reliability that characterize our actions. Technology people are like that! We will find the solution for you and implement it reliably.
