The ktc Group has been owner-managed for more than 20 years and offers you a secure and reliable partner from Baden-Württemberg. The differentiation and specialization in three core areas, the tool change systems, contract manufacturing and contract assembly enable us to successfully exploit synergy effects.

As the world’s oldest manufacturer of automatic tool changing systems, we always provide you with the right solution for your machine tools. We can rely on many patents or develop special systems for your application.

The first automatic tool changer worldwide was delivered by us in 1973.

Since then, we have been offering tool logistics for drilling rigs, machining centers as well as turning and grinding machines. With tool storage as chain, disc or shelf magazine, with or without folding function and with a variety of perfectly matched handling systems. In addition, we develop and manufacture special machines for general handling technology. Our design office and the complete service location for every type of machine processing complete our offer. Above all, the focus is on quality for our customers.
We maintain a qualified quality management according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 at all our production sites. Furthermore, we use various CAD and CAM programs as well as tested measuring equipment to meet all the standards and requirements of our customers.

10 machining centers with up to 5 axes and 2 lathes are available for our customers for the production of precision parts.

The maximum component size L= 1100mm B=650mm.

From batch size 1 to 2000 pieces, we develop the most economical production together with our customers.

For this purpose, we use a modern CAM system with tool management and modern quick release systems. We measure our parts on a 3D coordinate measuring machine to ensure the highest quality. In order to offer our customers a wide range of parts, we work together with partners for surface finishing or similar. There are no limits to creativity. Find out more

All tool change systems are assembled and removed at the Schorndorf site. At the Straubenhardt site, more than 50 different assemblies are assembled in series for our customers. Our main focus is mechanical and electrical assemblies. Find out more

The development and construction of devices, equipment, special machines, tool changing systems and tools are the specialty of our employees.

An extensive modular system makes it possible to offer fast and cost-effective solutions. Individual requirements are also solved in detail and tailor-made for the field of application. For confined spaces, short changeover times, fast handling or safe testing facilities, we use more divergent CAD systems for development. Find out more

Machine failures cause problems for any production. Through our erfahrerens team, spare parts for all our machines are delivered and installed on time. In addition to maintenance and maintenance, we also carry out machine overhauls and modernizations. Do you need a service assignment?
