Machine building
of the future

In the field of machine building, COSWIG can look back on know-how that has grown over time. For more than 40 years we have been assisting leading manufacturers of printing presses through the design and construction of innovative castings. We take full advantage of our experience to develop efficient and successful solutions for customers in a wide range of different industries.

COSWIG thinks ahead and pushes the boundaries. With an interdisciplinary research and development department, experienced development engineers and close cooperation with scientific institutions, we are able to solve complex problems for the tool and machine building of tomorrow.

In order to achieve the best-possible results, we will be by your side throughout the entire development process as an engineering partner – from preparation of the original draft design through simulations and first casting to final delivery of the ready-to-install components.

Here, our customers can trust us for total reliability every step along the way. With many years of casting experience, a state-of-the-art machine park and specialised skilled workers, COSWIG guarantees the highest quality for every component. For maximum reliability. Around the clock.
