Originally called "Maschinenbau Biland", the company was founded in 1969 by Max Biland and Marlis Biland (hence the name "MABI") as a specialist mechanical workshop for the construction of insulating machines. Even at this early stage, it was clear that Max Biland's machines were in great demand on the international market. Technical specialists from various disciplines were brought in to further develop and expand equipment that was already highly refined technically, and to assist MABI AG in achieving its progression to today’s standard of know-how. Nowadays, MABI is recognised as the market leader in this sector of industry and is successfully active on an international basis.
Max's two sons, Michael Biland and Markus Biland have worked for MABI AG since 1993.
Worldwide leading insulating machines are manufactured with Swiss precision using the latest machinery. MABI's principle is to only build that which has not been built before. Maintaining this philosophy requires extensive professional application and manufacturing analyses. The results and knowledge gained from these are processed and then developed for operation on CAD systems (Pro Engineer and Solid Works).
Once the operating plans have been worked out for a piece of equipment, the control system is designed in-house. For our customers this means that MABI machines are as easy as possible to operate.
Thanks to the use of the latest technologies, it is hardly ever necessary to manufacture a prototype. After production of the individual parts, the insulating machines are put together on the production line step-by-step. Overlapping working sequences guarantee integrated quality control. Before every delivery, each machine undergoes stringent final testing which guarantees that every MABI machine complies with the high demands of daily use.
The range of MABI machines is extensive and covers all conceivable requirements and applications.
The service we offer of individual workshop planning for insulating operations arose from the knowledge that a workshop that is set up as well as possible improves productivity significantly. By carrying out an analysis of working sequences at the customer's premises, we are able to compile a profile of requirements and then, using a specially developed program, we are able to integrate the criteria we have established into the existing workshop facilities.
MABI AG also places great importance on technical service and in the instruction of customers. However in the rare event that a MABI machine ceases to work properly, our Service Department swings into action in a matter of moments.
No matter where you are, in urgent cases we offer a 48-hour service throughout the whole of Europe. All the supervision and co-ordination work takes place centrally in our Swiss headquarters.
Our demanding customers are our best reference, because, thanks to our products, they are always a step ahead of the times.
