In the mid 80's, Guido Bertoglio founded the STREAM company because he could not find a CNC grinding machine on the market that could produce high precision tools with a constant quality. The first machine he designed worked perfectly and other machines were built, initially for the company ALBE’s own needs. But soon it developed into a small company that quickly became known among tool manufacturers for its extreme precision.
TTB ENGINEERING SA was founded in 1995 as a successor company. Since then, we have been located in Riva San Vitale, 15 minutes by car south of Lugano in the Swiss Ticino.
Since 2006, TTB Engineering has been part of the German SAACKE Group, which provided a further synergy effect in development and worldwide sales.

The machines have become of course more modern and more efficient over time. The original ingenious concept of Guido Bertoglio with the extraordinary precision, the ingenious temperature compensation of the mechanics, as well as the unique drive system of the individual axes still results in the TTB machines working for 10-12 hours within 0.003 mm deviation.
