TOSHULIN, previously known as TOS Hulín, was founded in 1949 when construction of the plant got underway in the town of Hulín in what is now the Czech Republic. Initially, TOS Hulín was engaged in manufacturing a variety of machinery, but since 1951 the company has produced machine tools, eventually focussing production exclusively on Vertical Turning Lathes.
The TOSHULIN story is one of continuous innovation and improvement to our family of machines. In 1959, we manufactured our first vertical lathe with continuous working feed, numerically-controlled axes movements and tracing. This machine was built based on TOS Hulín’s proprietary design and was the first numerically controlled machine tool produced in Czechoslovakia, and also one of the first numerically controlled lathes in the world. In 1974, we introduced an innovative 15-position tool magazine for automatic tool exchange in the renowned SKIQ, which is still in demand and manufactured to this day.
In the ensuing years, TOSHULIN has been a constant technology leader in vertical lathes.
In 2019, TOSHULIN celebrated 70 years in operation. TOSHULIN has earned a reputation for excellence. We have installed more than 13 500 machine tools in more than 72 countries worldwide. Our target is to continue our cooperation with foreign partners and customers also in the future and to develop it even more.
