Straightaway to the tailor-made machine.
Some machines do not yet exist. That's why Durrer develops them - from conception to commissioning and beyond, plus special machines for highly individual tasks.
Whatever your requirements, we find the solution. We develop a wide range of solutions for customers from various industries.
What all our solutions have in common are that they are innovative, tailor-made and of first-class quality.
Know-how and high-tech for more efficiency.
Satisfied customers are the most important indicator of our quality. And the feedback we receive speaks clearly: we are valued as a reliable partner.
Our machines ensure more efficiency, optimized processes, and higher productivity.
Our services are convincing, thanks to experienced specialists with a lot of know-how who work conscientiously and quickly, and highly modern technology. And of course, because everything is done in-house: from requirement analysis to the delivery of the finished product. This makes us flexible, efficient and it will ensure the highest quality in all aspects.
Partner for all industries.
Take a look at our portfolio: we work with customers from many industries. Diversity and the ability to quickly grasp customer needs makes us the ideal partner for a wide range of companies.
We are large and experienced enough to develop tailor-made solutions for companies in all industries. We are also small and agile enough to adapt to specific requirements in each case.
Not only that, but we usually work very closely with our customers, placing great value on mutual trust and long-term business relationships. Next to our technological know-how and our innovative spirit, these are the qualities that customers value most about us.
We currently work for companies from these sectors:
We have been international leaders in developing and producing sophisticated solutions for processing paper and print for more than 50 years.
Printing, combined with highly-developed security technology, is becoming increasingly important. Our fully automatic machines provide passports, banknotes, parking tickets, and so on with chips, codes and other elements.
Food production is demanding in many respects: hygiene, accuracy, and efficiency processes must be correct and perfectly coordinated. This requires sophisticated high-tech solutions.
Vacuum technology makes cooling oven-warm bread by 60° C within a short timeframe possible. We develop standardised and individual solutions for the highest demands.
Aviation and aerospace industry
Precision and reliability are decisive in the aviation industry. Well-known companies rely on Durrer: we manufacture prototype parts for lightweight construction and design fixtures for high-precision assembly.
Watch and electronics industry
Swiss luxury watches are masterpieces of precision. Renowned manufacturers test their watches and balance springs with Durrer machines. For the electronics industry, we manufacture parts for automatic winding machines and high-precision vacuum sensors, among others.
Medical technology and healthcare
In medical technology, maximum requirements for precision and hygiene come together - perfect for Durrer vacuum technology. For example, we develop high-tech vacuum dryers for medical bone implants.
TV and media industry
Our extraordinary developments are also in demand at Swiss television SRF: from height-adjustable platforms for news studios to sophisticated constructions for game shows.
Our machines support the packaging industry in developing and testing new materials with new properties, tailored to individual needs.
For once, aesthetics plays a significant role. It’s all about a living space’s interior design: a kitchen table, 350 kg in weight. Our equipment is height-adjustable, infinitely variable, and quiet. And it still looks great. Challenge mastered.
Services – Simply without detours.
Our range of services covers all development and production steps: from analysing requirements to the project idea and series production. You decide what you need from us.
Whatever your concerns or challenges you have, we approach every assignment methodically. This means we are determined and efficient right from the start.
We avoid idle time and unnecessary costs - thanks to cross-departmental know-how, high vertical integration, short communication channels, and a high level of quality awareness at all project stages.
We offer mechanical engineering from A to Z – and everything from one source.

Production engineering – Many manufacturing processes under one roof.
What distinguishes us is our high vertical range of manufacture at our location in Immensee. We offer a wide range of different manufacturing processes at our location in Immensee. Thanks to five-axis machining technology, there are hardly any limits for us in this area.
At Durrer, we have a large, modern machine park and a team of motivated mechanical specialists. They align with our thinking and always strive for the ideal solution. They can also produce any component, individually and precisely. With the 5-axis CNC milling and processing center we can offer almost unlimited possibilities, almost any 3D shape can be produced with the highest precision. This manufacturing method is particularly suitable for prototype and series production.
In addition, we take over all standard manufacturing processes, such as milling, turning, drilling, grinding or sawing in equally high quality. This makes us flexible, independent, and reliable, and keeps costs reasonable. Surface treatment and other processes such as eroding, laser cutting or sheet metal processing are carried out by our local partners.
Component construction / Module assembly
Quite often, our developments exceed customer expectations. This is because when it comes to meeting highly specific requirements, we draw on our wealth of experience and combined know-how in moving mechanics, drive and control technology, and software development. We analyse, design, construct and produce machines, assemblies, and individual components for customers in a wide variety of sectors.
The individual manufactured parts are put together in the assembly department to form new machines or assemblies for existing machines.
Toolmaking & Devices
Durrer manufactures tools for machines for hydrostatic tube forming. The significant challenge here are maximum precision!
We manufacture prototype parts for lightweight construction and design fixtures for high-precision assembly. Our Polymechanics manufacture tools, equipment parts, and production devices. As part of a team, they are involved in the development, manufacture, and assembly of entire production facilities. They program and operate machines, monitor production, commission and maintain equipment, and carry out quality control.
At Durrer, we have a large, modern machine park and a team of motivated polymechanics. They align with our thinking and always strive for the ideal solution.

Give your machine a second life.
Every machine and installation that has left our production facility still makes us incredibly proud. Our machines have a long life cycle. But this cycle can only be achieved with periodic service and maintenance.
Over the decades, and with today's fast-moving technological developments, not all spare parts can necessarily be re-procured. For this reason, many of our customers decide for a complete revision. In this case, all discontinued or no longer reproducible parts will be replaced by new technologies in our production facility and the machine will be made safe again for the next years or decades.
Theoretically, you will receive a refurbished machine with a wholly new internal system. This includes the mechanical components, the control systems and software. This improves the productivity of the machine, in some cases significantly, and the machine is adapted or retrofitted to your requirements.
