EMAG Acquires CNC­-Technik Weiss GmbH Headquartered in Neckartailfingen, Germany

The EMAG Group is expanding its technology range in the field of grinding with cylindrical grinding technology from WEISS. “We are extending our range of products in the area of high-output and high-precision cylindrical grinders with grinding technology from WEISS,” explains Dr. Guido Hegener, Managing Director of EMAG Maschinenfabrik GmbH. “Cylindrical grinding is particularly important at the end of the process chain, when a large part of the added value has already been transferred to the part. That is why it is very important for us to offer our customers the best solutions in this area. The expertise and machines from Neckartailfingen significantly expand our range of solutions. Resulting in even more attractive offerings available to our customers”, argues Mr. Hegener.


Over the past few years, CNC­Technik Weiss has made a name for itself as a successful developer of cylindrical grinders. Founded in 1993, the company built this expertise by performing maintenance and modernization work on Karsten cylindrical grinders. The high quality service provided by the company quickly led to growth in customer base, and resulted in demand for in-house production solutions, leading to the development of its own cylindrical grinders. This marked the birth of Weiss CNC cylindrical grinders. 

Growth Alongside EMAG

“I’m excited to have found a new partner in the EMAG Group, that allows me to put my visions for our business into practice”, explains Bernd Weiss, current and former Managing Director of the company.

“Our massive growth at the Neckartailfingen plant has brought us to our capacity limits. As part of the EMAG Group, completely new opportunities are opening up for our products. We now have access to broad knowledge and support from the group, which will allow us to accelerate the development of new machines. Our customers will continue to receive the quality they expect from us, and will also benefit from the EMAG Group’s extensive service network – a win-win situation for all parties involved,” adds Bernd Weiss.

The EMAG Group

Since 1969, the EMAG Group has been based in Salach, Germany (Baden-Württemberg), and was honored to celebrate its 150-year anniversary in 2017. When the EMAG Group introduced the world’s first vertical turning machine with pick-up spindle in 1992, it set new standards in the automotive industry. Today, the EMAG Group and its subsidiaries offer a wide range of standardized machines and customized production solutions for customers from the most diverse industries throughout the world.
