With its headquarters in Pfäffikon, Switzerland, the BalTec Group sees its core competence in the manufacturing of joining technology machinery, with a special focus on radial riveting technology, but also orbital riveting, roller forming and pressing. As early as 1968, BalTec (then still known as Bräcker that coined the term "brackering") had already made radial riveting technology a familiar process in a variety of different industries. Today we are the global leader in joining technology, encompassing seven companies with over 60 direct employees and 40 sales and service partners on every continent.

BalTec is represented worldwide through 7 direct operations (Switzerland/Germany, France, Great Britain/Ireland, USA with Canada/Mexico, Brazil, Italy and China) plus 40 representatives as sales and support agents, located in all continents.

Years of Experience

As early as 1968, BalTec (then still known as Bräcker) had already made radial riveting technology a familiar process in a variety of different sectors. Today we are the global leader in riveting technology.


Over 45'000
Machines Sold

Over fourtyfive thousand machines have been sold worldwide since 1968, and most of them are still in operation today. We manufacture all machines entirely in Switzerland, which ensures excellent quality and reliability. This is just a significant figure. Above all, we are very proud of our long-time relations with customers and partners.


We firmly believe that the high level of quality and customer satisfaction provided by BalTec can only be assured by a strong local presence. We support plant manufacturers and customers in both testing and service centers all around the world when it comes to determining the best joining technology or during integration of machines. This close personal support is provided by BalTec employees or our trained representatives.


Our position as a technology leader defines the direction we wish to take in future. Refining and advancing existing technologies, as well as developing new possibilities, is paramount for BalTec to be able to provide you with the best possible solution. Key for BalTec is also a close cooperation with our partners and customers, with a focus on finding solutions for challenges in joining technology.
With the patented HPP-25, a process data management system, and the latest, entirely ELECTRIC product line, we have created a new benchmark in process monitoring.


And what is our strongest asset? Beyond any doubt, it is our committed and motivated employees, many of whom have gained a wealth of experience over many years. Together, we pursue a single goal with absolute dedication: customer satisfaction.
