The birth of an idea
Walter Herrmann is a pioneer of ultrasonic welding. With his inventions and patents, he has contributed greatly to the industrialization of this technology. At the end of the 1950s, he wasn’t prepared to be content with the technical status quo. He had the idea of replacing the standard, very temperamental ultrasonic tube generators with a machine generator based on the dynamo principle. With a starting capital of DM 3,000, he founded this company with his wife, Ingeborg, in 1961.
Humble beginnings. In a small, detached house in Ötisheim near Pforzheim, high-frequency technician Walter Herrmann converted a room in the cellar to make a workshop; the living room served as a design office. The first years were hard. In spite of his ingenious inventions and tireless efforts, there were always setbacks. But Walter Herrmann’s tenacity, his technical talent, and constant search for the customer advantage slowly led to that one-man operation becoming a company.
