SwissChuck (former Forkardt Schweiz GmbH) develops and produces highly-precise clamping devices. You have the workpiece, the grinding machine - we have the suitable high-precision chuck or develop the customised special clamping technique! Whether centric grinding, eccentric grinding, turning or hard turning - SwissChuck is your partner for workpiece clamping where precision clamping technology is needed.
In 1923, Paul Forkardt established the now globally-acting company. It includes Forkardt companies in Europe, in the USA, and India, as well as a partner company in Japan.
Forkardt Switzerland has focused on high precision clamping from the beginning. It concentrated primarily on customer-specific clamping requirements. The high precision chucking systems of Forkardt Switzerland come in where others are at a loss.
The Forkardt company was taken over by a well known machine tool manufacturer early in 2013.
As a result of the take-over a conflict of interest occured with Forkardt Switzerland. This situation was resolved by the management buy-out in 2014. Since January 1st 2014, we are SwissChuck.
