Tool solutions for the raw wood industry

Focussed knowledge – for the best possible results – and maximum cost-effectiveness

As a tool specialist, we provide complete system solutions for sawmills and planing mills. An unparalleled ratio of in-house production and decades of experience form the foundation of AKE saw blades. The most productive sawmills in the world trust in the high quality and cutting-edge technological standards of tools made by AKE.

At our production facility in Balingen, our exceptionally experienced workforce
performs all stages of saw blade manufacturing in-house,
coupling high-tech manufacturing with exceptional Swabian
craftsmanship. In order to cost-effectively manufacture products to the highest standards
of quality, we use cutting-edge machinery, including laser cutting systems, heat treatment plants 
and CNC machines. There are nevertheless still areas that require manual
work. In our in-house straightening workshop, our circular saw
blades are manually straightened, as no CNC machine can match the ability and precision
of a practised straightener.
