Machine program


Köping's Mechanical Workshop is founded by Otto Hallström for the manufacture & repair of agricultural machinery, which was soon expanded with machinery & mechanical products that Sweden is in need of for industrialization. The brand name was "KÖPING".


The company is acquired by AB Volvo. At Köping's mechanical workshop, Volvo produced gearboxes and rear axles for cars and trucks, as well as the machines that Volvo needed in its own production.



In the 1960s, Volvo decided to stop its own production of machine tools. The machine tool manufacturing was sold to the Swedish state and became part of the conglomerate Statsföretag, which was strongly linked to Sweden's defense industry at the time.



The company presents its first numerically controlled lathe and begins the journey towards a high-tech company.


SMT launches its first CNC control, ie. a control system where block preparation, logic and interpolators are implemented in a software running on a microprocessor.


After several different owners and mergers, SMT's Swedturn division (Lathes) was sold to the owners of STOREBRO Machine Tools, who are also tool machine manufacturers.



SMT Machine moves from Västerås to Köping near where the company was started from the beginning.


SMT Machine gathers together with STOREBRO Machine Tools & SMT Milling Machines under the umbrella Swedish Machine Tool Company AB
