Perndorfer – A Family-Run Company

Your committed partner for the highest quality.

Everything great once started out small. This is also true of Perndorfer Maschinenbau, which developed from a one-man metalworker shop founded in 1985 into one of the most innovative production operations for waterjet cutting machines and special machines.

The values for which company owner Franz Perndorfer and his team stand have remained the same: reliability, innovative spirit, flexibility, highest quality, and the desire to find a solution to any problem.

As a result, the company has a diversified product range that includes:

  • Standard machines
  • Prototype construction
  • Comprehensive solutions
  • Bespoke Machines (Special Machines)
  • Trainings
  • Specific advice on site
  • 24-hour service

Trust in Perndorfer.

The familiar atmosphere in the whole team is reflected in its commitment. As a dynamic company that acts with foresight Perndorfer offers its team – be it in the office in the factories – the option to develop themselves further. We know that our success is based on our qualified employees.

We have years of experience in the design, development, and production of waterjet cutting machines as well as in the construction of special machines. As a result, our product range in these areas and in the related technologies and services is quite extensive. As one of the most innovative companies in the field we maintain a permanent and successful presence on the international market. Our competitiveness is something we continually demonstrate!

Our Success Story:


Ground-breaking for the construction of Perndorfer’s demonstration centre Cutting World. Production area expanded by 500 m² at the Kallham location. Starting in 2020, innovation is going to be top priority at the Cutting World.


Development, production, and presentation of probably the most energy-saving and most efficient pump in the world, the Servo-Jet4000.


New design and enhanced technology for the WJC machines.
This year at the “Schweißen und Schneiden” trade fair in Essen Perndorfer presents the new electronic beam cutting technology (ESS) which is the result of three years of research and development work in cooperation with the Leibnitz University Hannover.


Development and production of the first tube cutting machine that uses waterjet.


Company name change: The individual company Franz Perndorfer becomes Perndorfer Maschinenbau KG and is given a new corporate identity. The corporate slogan “Your committed partner for the highest quality” is coined. But this guiding principle has been followed since the company was founded. It is important for us to manufacture solid and high-quality products with commitment and dedication.


Production area in Kallham expanded by 1,500 m2.


Perndorfer presents its waterjet cutting machines at the “Intertool” trade fair in Vienna.


Construction of the first waterjet cutting machine.


Company foundation. In the one-man metalworker shop the first special machine, an ECG electrode production machine, was made in 1986 one year after the founding.
