First class mechanical engineering

Special machines for specific customer requirements

We are mechanical engineers with heart and soul. We have been building machines for almost 150 years: first agricultural machines, then lifting technology and equipment for material handling. For more than 10 years we have also been manufacturing special machines that meet very specific customer requirements.

Quite often these machines are a combination of machining or tool machine with lifting and conveying technology, which can be integrated into or expand existing manufacturing or production. Meanwhile, the demand is so great that customer-specific machines have become our core business.


Exactly the machine you require

We begin our cooperation with a comprehensive inventory, so that we can build the best machine solution for you. Together, we will discuss your requirements and local conditions.

Should the workpiece be tilted, machined, conveyed or transported? Or all of this? Do you need a component for an existing plant or a stand-alone solution?

Give us a call, we will take care of it.

We are happy to help

    Stacking line with retractable railings for the automotive industry

    Smooth material flow

    The stacking line developed by Gruse is the main component of an automatic feeding system for tyre assembly in the automotive industry. The independent lifting systems allow a permanent loading of the downstream assembly lines. The high-performance redundant hydraulic power units ensure the continued operation of both lift tables even if one unit fails. Spare parts can be replaced in less than one hour due to the plug and screw connections. This also ensures higher availability for the production flow.

    Key facts

    • 2 independent lifting systems for permanent operation
    • Production reliability thanks to redundant hydraulic power units
    • High availability thanks to quick replacement of spare parts in less than one hour

    Coil handling

    Coil lift truck for handling of coils up to 50 tons

    As a specialist for custom-made machines handling heavy loads, we have experience in handling coils up to 50 tons.  We ensure optimum material flow in your plants with short material changeover times during the coiling and decoiling process.

    We have developed and manufactured this lift truck for coil transport. The compact scissor lift table moves with a driven rail chassis. The lift truck is equipped with a mounting fixture to remove the coils.

    Key facts

    • Loads up to 50 t
    • Traverse path 5000 mm
    • Coil diameter up to 2150 mm

    CNC riser milling machine for foundries

    Fast and accurate milling of casting channels in moulding sand 

    Gruse has developed and built a CNC riser/sprue milling machine for the foundry industry. The machine mills the risers in the cope of a flasked moulding plant using a CNC program. Two sprue milling attachments with independent CNC control enable the drilling of sprues or the milling of pouring basins. Advantages include precise milling images in optimum quality and extremely short cycle times. The customer-specific machine solution was integrated into the foundry's existing plant.

    Key facts

    • Size (length x width): app. 10.000 mm x 2.500 mm
    • Fast due to extremely short cycle times and plant customised cycle times
    • Optimum quality: high accuracy and
      repeatability of the milling structures

    Assembly line for fan producer

    Lifting, tilting, turning, installing, conveying

    Gruse designed, built and installed an assembly line for a manufacturer of high-performance blowers and screw compressors.

    The assembly line consists of 4 lift-tilt tables and 6 load carriers with round track carriage. The load carriers are equipped with a mounting bar and ar slightly smaller than the lift-tilt tables. The load carriers are transported by rail carriers above the lift-tilt tables and then fixed hydraulically. Now they can be lifted and tilted.
    The rotation is carried out manually and is possible in horizontal position, locked in 4 x 90 degrees positions. This enables units weighing up to 2,000 kg to be placed in an ergonomic working position for assembly purposes.

    Key facts

    • 4 lift-tilt tables
    • 6 load carriers
    • Round rail chassis
