100 Years DISKUS WERKE

 

DISKUS was founded in 1911 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Since the company was founded, DISKUS has dealt with side face grinding - grinding with the front side of the grinding wheel. Over the centuries we have gained a wealth of experience in the field of side face grinding, which is reflected in the productivity and accuracy of our machines.
