ARISTO Company Profile

Precision since 1862

ARISTO was founded in 1862 as a factory for mathematical and calibration instruments.

During the exceptionally long company history, ARISTO has made an international name for themselves as a supplier of slide rules and drawing aids amongst others. Further to this, ARISTO was the pioneer in Germany as far as geometric data processing is concerned. ARISTO is today the leading German manufacturer for large format, computer-controlled flatbed machines for use in Signmaking, digital diecutting as well as in the packaging, textile and leather industries.

The in 1959 first introduced machine generation of flat bed plotters, ARISTO®, was already built in the following year with an at that time highly modern contour control system and supplied to various customers. During the course of time the ARISTO®-line developed from a pure plotter to CNC-Cutter. In 1995 and 1996, the ARISTO® was awarded the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg Innovation Award. The machines are developed and manufactured solely in Hamburg and sold world wide. Sales and service points all over the world provide optimal support.

Precision and reliability are our key words. Fair prices and high performance are further ones. And innovation, as numerous national and international patents, awards and acclaim for our present-day product series ARISTO® show.

Our keys to world wide exports and long standing success are technical imaginativeness and outstanding service, plus decades of experience and reliability.
