Foundation of Feinmechanik GmbH in Weilheim by Fritz Deckel. At first, production of injection nozzles, precision vices and helix clamps, followed by centering testers and the Deckel single-­lip cutter grinder S0, a real classic. Almost 30,000 of them have been sold so far. Factory extension as early as in the 1960s, with a new production building being opened up. For the upcoming plastics industry, Deckel designs the S0E to offer a plus in accuracy.

The S11 universal grinder makes Deckel a technically leading tool grinding machine builder. Till today, around 2,500 of these machines have been sold. In 1980, the company moves into a modern office building. Michael Deckel is taking over management. The manufactu­ring facilities are being entirely brought up to date. With the S12 tool grinding machine, the company is entering the CNC business.

Deckel designs its first five-axis CNC tool grinding machine, the S20-CNC. In the early 1990s, the company is recovering from a serious economic crisis. Michael Deckel hands over management to Willi Standke, Dr. Valentin Mauderer and Bernd Wöhr, who, at the same time, enter the company as co-partners. Meanwhile, over 100 committed employees are working for Deckel both at its Weilheim headquarters and at subsidiaries operating in the UK and in the US.

Automation is of growing significance, with innovative solutions being in great demand in the market. Thus, Deckel designs the S22P with a chain loader. The extremely versatile FLEXUS® Duo heavy-duty grinding centre with its grinding and loading modules has specifically been made for inserts and is setting new design standards, while the S20E and S22E series focus on economic efficiency.
Italy becomes the most important export market: Near Milan, Deckel Italia is being founded in 2003 for a wider sales radius. The German-speaking colleagues working there perfectly fit into Deckel‘s sales team.

Turbulent years for Deckel: The company is expanding into Asia and changes its management. Still, a lot of new machine concepts are being created. The FLEXUS® has blossomed out into the FLEXUS® Invader, while the FORTIS® as a „low-cost machine“ specifically intended for beginners in the trade supplements the range of products. Automation solutions include the employment of robots – an efficient extension for machines such as the S20+ using the RC1250 or the S22+ with the RC1900.

The company is off to a flying start by renaming itself into ISOG, changing its logo, and having a new management. This clearly puts behind the hard times of the past. Customers promptly get struck with the difference: This is, among other things, due to much better in-house communication and to remarkably enhanced service activities. A fresh wind reflected by new solutions is sweeping through the company. Control is now FANUC-made, and the runout optimator, the RLO Air, for the S22NUM+ is also available. This ensures much higher runout accuracy for long-shanked tools.
