KE FISCHER was founded in 1940 by Karl Eugen Fischer. The company entered a new forward-looking phase in 1970 when it began experimenting with cutting cord and textiles. This developed into the construction of the first cord cutting machine for the tire industry. Within only a few years, KE FISCHER went on to produce first-rate products for supporting this technology. KE FISCHER secured an important advantage in the market by establishing a subsidiary in the USA in the mid 1980‘s as well as by taking first steps into the Asian market.

Our innovative processes have helped KE FISCHER build a strong reputation in the tire industry as a product specialist for steel and textile cord cutting systems for two-wheel, passenger car, light truck, truck, and
off-the-road tire manufacturing.

Over the last 50 years, KE FISCHER has delivered over 800 cutting lines to customers in more than 50 countries worldwide. Because the tire industry is constantly evolving, KE FISCHER has committed itself to producing innovations based on our customers` needs.

50 years of success has made KE Fischer the world‘s leading

manufacturer of cutting systems for the tire industry.
