The Threading Specialist


Today, machining is more than just about turning, milling, drilling and threading. Perfection and precision are merely a stepping stone. It’s about much more. It’s about goals that still seem unattainable – and about solutions that still seem unimaginable today, but will already become the new benchmark tomorrow.

If you’re looking for solutions to meet the challenges that lie ahead, you’ll find Walter. You have our very own word on it: Engineering Kompetenz.
