Industries of austrian machine builders

The mechanical engineering industry is diverse and is characterized by a wide range of services. In the following, we present some typical areas of mechanical engineering and name Austrian companies active in each segment.

Tooling machines

A large part of the top-selling machine builders from Austria develop and manufacture machine tools. These include CNC machining units, milling machines, machines for cutting, bending, folding, profiling, etc. Miba Automation Systems can be mentioned as an example for manufacturers of machine tools.

Recycling machines

Recycling machines have occupied an important position in the industry not only since the topics of circular economy and sustainable management have become increasingly important. According to its own statements, the Austrian company EREMA is the world market leader for plastics recycling machines and system components. The Starlinger Group from Vienna should also be mentioned here.

Packaging machines

Packaging machines are needed in almost every industry. Be it for the packaging of food, textiles, pharmaceuticals, components or entire assemblies. Some of the largest mechanical engineering companies from Austria are active in this segment and are among the most relevant companies worldwide in their fields. The Pamminger company from Linz can be cited as an example of an innovative company in the field of packaging technology.

Food processing machines

As diverse as the food industry is, so are the machines required for food processing. Examples from the field are butchery machines, machines for fruit juice production, mixing plants, shredders, etc. KÖNIG Maschinen GmbH from Graz manufactures bakery machines and is a world market leader in the field of dough preparation.
