How should a machine tool look, in which the perfect balance of mechanics, electronics and control software provides maximum benefit to the customer?
Finding the answer to this question has been METROM GmbH's focus since the company's founding in 2001. To this end, we develop and produce mechatronic machine systems, primarily based on our patented five-strut parallel kinematics (Pentapod).
Our most important products are our machining centers and special-purpose machines, which guarantee effective 5-axis simultaneous and HSC machining of a wide variety of materials, such as metals, molding sand, plastics, and ceramics. Due to the machines' modular design and parallel kinematics, it takes relatively little time and money to make adjustments according to specific customer requirements and to develop comprehensive solutions for specific applications.
Company founder Dr. Michael Schwaar leads a team of highly qualified specialists who are always working to refine and perfect their machines and machine properties. Their goal is quality, not quantity. Technological competence, openness to innovations, reliability, and high-quality work have made METROM a highly reputed supplier of milling machines for the production of challenging parts.
Our team observes internationally recognized standards when developing and manufacturing products. We are actively involved in European funding projects and work in cooperation with overseas companies, organizations, and research institutions with a view to establishing lively international exchange. We view ourselves as a knowledge company and develop solutions to problems in order to manufacture our customers' products with the highest level of efficiency. In this respect, manufacturing and service form a single unit. We assist our customers with every aspect, from the development of a machine solution to suit their needs, to engineering, installation, training, and the provision of financing options and servicing.
Our products have received several awards, such as the 2009 Innovation Award of the Free State of Saxony and the INTEC Prize in 2011, in recognition of their high level of innovation and customer benefit. More important than these awards, however, is the satisfaction of our global customer base.

The Innovation Award is Saxony's way of honoring the exceptional services of companies that are based in the Free State and that employ up to 500 employees. It recognizes pioneering ideas that have been implemented in products, services, and process-related or organization-related innovations. In 2009, the most innovative Saxons came from Chemnitz. METROM Mechatronische Maschinen GmbH, founded in 2001, claimed first prize for its mobile 5-axis machine tool.
The company, which has since moved to its newly constructed corporate headquarters in Hartmannsdorf, used a unique design and unique technical control equipment to build a machine that is much smaller and lighter than conventional machines and to make it suitable for mobile use. This does away with high transport and disassembly costs, such as those associated with large workpieces. (Source: www.mittelstand.sachsen.de)
