In 1949, a few years after the end of the war, Paul Weber founded the company in Stuttgart-Uhlbach as a mechanical workshop.
The first vacuum press tools are produced in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart and the Robert-Bosch company. They are used for sample preparation for the IR spectroscopy method invented by Perkin-Elmer at the time. In the same year Paul Weber develops manual lab presses which are adapted to the vacuum pressing tools.
During his apprenticeship as master mechanic at the Wilhelm Maybach School in Bad Cannstatt, Paul Weber's son, Paul-Otto Weber, together with technical instructors develops trial units and teaching presses for the practical training in metal professions at vocational schools – today technology in metalworking trials.
Extension of the product range with electrohydraulic lab presses for semi-automatic press operations.
Development of cold isostatic lab presses with hydraulically loaded press tools. This method allows the three-dimensional compression of materials in elastic forms surrounded by a fluid medium with pressures of several thousand bar.
Paul Weber’s son, Paul-Otto Weber, joined the company in 1959 and took over the management in 1976. In the same year, the company moved to Remshalden-Grunbach, 20 km east of Stuttgart, in a new and larger company building.
Together with technical teachers, Paul-Otto Weber develops trial units and teaching presses for practical wood technology at vocational schools – today technology in wood technology trials.
The first servo-controlled lab press with a screen on which the pressing process is visualized is developed for the Robert-Bosch company.
Development of the microprocessor control system PRESSYS for regulated processes with ramp-shaped ram force and temperature procedures.
Jürgen Weber, the grandson of the company founder, joins the company in 1992 and takes over the company management in 2000. In the same year, his wife Stephanie Weber starts working at P/O/WEBER.
Lab presses with pneumatic pressurisation and corresponding control valves are developed for applications with small but constant press forces.
For the discontinuous extrusion of ceramic materials, servo-controlled piston presses are developed and successfully implemented.
The new control generation PRESSYS can be used in all variety of applications for black and white, proportional and servo valve technology and, therefore, offers the right control solution for almost all pressing applications.
Consistant further development characterizes our ability to innovate. At P/O/WEBER you benefit from many years of experience.
There are many companies that value "Made in Germany" – as our references prove. See for yourself.
