Reinhardt Maschinenbau has been developing and building machines and systems for the timber processing industry since it was founded in 1919. Starting out as a specialist in the manufacture of turbines for sawmills, the company acquired a great deal of know-how in the technical and organisational processes of the industry. With this knowledge, company founder Christof Reinhardt focussed on the production of machines for cutting solid wood at an early stage and became one of the leading manufacturers of cross-cut systems and their automation components.

Since then, Reinhardt has been setting standards in timber processing with its expertise and creativity. The engineer-driven pursuit of the best customer solutions has always led to innovative new products that have become established in the industry and are now standard in some cases. The family-owned company introduced the first stop system with saw cut release as early as 1966 and the first tilt hoist destacker in 1967. Holistic computer network controls in the 1980s and the optimisation of workpiece handling after stacking are testament to the pioneering spirit of the machine and system manufacturer.

In 2014, Paul Maschinenfabrik took over the former competitor and was able to continue the success story of the Reinhardt brand. Together, Paul and Reinhardt consolidate their strengths by building high-quality cross-cut saws and sophisticated automation components. The focus is always on customer-oriented solutions, high technology standards, unrestricted practical suitability, flexible systems and first-class service. The machine manufacturer has gradually developed the Reinhardt brand product portfolio to the current state of the art and expanded it with numerous innovations, some of which are patented.

Today, cross-cut saws and push-feed saws from the Reinhardt brand are among the best in the industry worldwide. The product range includes simple and semi-automated undertable cross-cut saws, push-feed saws with and without gripper system as well as cross-cut saws combined with a ripsaw, process software for packaging production and semi-automatic or fully automatic stacking systems. Combined with other automation components, this results in customised cross-cut systems for maximum added value in the woodworking industry.
