AMB 2022 over - 19.09.2022

An extremely successful comeback of the AMB

The 20th edition of the AMB brought an excellent mood to the exhibition halls and the industry. 64,298 visitors made their way across the fully booked Stuttgart exhibition center over five days. Thus, the AMB once again became the center of the metalworking industry.

We were very pleased about the numerous visits to our stand and the intensive exchange with you. Finally a personal and direct meeting again, which has been sorely lacking in the last two years.

We are already looking forward to AMB 2024.

MedtecLIVE with T4M 2022 - 10.05.2022

 Successful start of the new trade fair MedtecLIVE with T4M:

With the merger of the two trade fairs MedtecLIVE and T4M, a new trade fair format was able to connect the important medical regions in the heart of southern Germany. The special thing about this first MedtecLIVE with T4M was the international appeal: From May 3rd to 5th, 2022, more than 430 exhibitors from 23 European countries were represented.

After a two-year break due to the pandemic, MedtecLIVE with T4M was a successful start and made us want more - we are already excited about the AMB in September 2022 and are looking forward to the "analogue" contact and good conversations with colleagues and customers.

Many thanks to everyone who visited us during these 3 days here in Stuttgart.

TTB Next - 08.04.2022

 Our journey continues - fit for the future!:

Yesterday we received our next CNC grinding center from TTB Engineering SA. It will already make its contribution to the series production of our micro tools next week.

With the NEXT model, we are relying on stability, accuracy in the µm range and reliability that has been tried and tested for us for many years, with even greater efficiency, so that we can continue to provide our customers with the precision our tools are known for in the future.

We are particularly pleased, thanks to our long-standing partnership with TTB, to be able to use this new generation of devices as one of TTB's first customers. This means that we are also well prepared for your increasing demands in the future.

We support! - 28.02.2022


Solidarity and Support:

At Hobe we stand for tolerance and democracy.

The images that reach us from Ukraine shake us all to the core. Millions of innocent civilians are turned into refugees by the current events. In the heart of Europe an unbearable state.

Images of desperate women and children on the borders to the EU must shake up all Europeans and move them to action.
We have decided to help the children in the crisis area and support the work of UNICEF financially with a donation.

Protect the environment - 03.12.2021


Protect the environment - think about the next generations:

Climate change affects us all and is one of the greatest challenges facing our society.

Climate protection and the associated reduction in greenhouse gas emissions are of great importance to Hobe; Photovoltaics and heat recovery have been used in our company for many years.

During the year 2021 we realized further energy and thus emissions savings. By converting our air filter technology to electrostatic air cleaning on our grinding machines and adapting our lighting in the production areas to LED technology, we will save more than 60t of CO per year in the future and thus make our contribution to climate protection. At the beginning of 2022 we will successively convert our vehicle fleet to hybrid or, if appropriate, fully electric drives.

As a medium-sized company, we will continue to do everything in the future to reconcile ecological improvements and economic action.

It was a pleasure for us as exhibitor to welcome our guests personally at the stand again with this first analog trade fair appearance during the corona pandemic.

We were able to hold many interesting conversations and make exciting contacts and will be happy to be represented here in the future as well.

The HOBE borin® System, a simple explenation:

Our system has been developed for efficient turning of „micro-bores“. Remarkable are the small dimensions, precision and the coolant-channel through the holder and in the tool-bits.

The changing of the tool-bits is done by hand, without any further device. The precision of our system tools and the special pick-up system of our tool-holder has a repeatability of usually ± 5 μm.

50 Years Hobe GmbH | micro tools - 05.07.2021


We celebrate our 50th anniversary!

We turned 50 on July 1st.

Company Anniversary - 18.01.2021


50 years of Hobe GmbH

On July 1st 2021 we will be 50 years old. A lot has happened from the beginnings in Ravensburg to the current location in Baienfurt.

The courage of Mr. Max Hobe senior to take the step into self-employment and to found the Hobe GmbH is our admiration to this day. His children Max jun. and Dagmar, as well as her husband Ralf Lauterbach, managed the extremely successful continuation and expansion of the company, on whose solid foundation we were able to build on in 2016 after the takeover.

With the expansion of production capacities and increased digitalization of our processes, the establishment of our own direct sales with permanent field staff in Germany and the constantly growing partner network abroad, we have been able to spur our growth. The year 2020 brought an unforeseeable challenge for all of us with the pandemic, which we as a team were able to master most successfully.

For our anniversary year 2021, we see good opportunities again to start over and continue our growth path together.
Special thanks at this point to all employees of Hobe, without whose tireless commitment and team spirit we would never have been able to achieve what we have, especially in these difficult times.
Last but not least it is important for us to thank you, our customers, some of whom have remained loyal to us for many years. We will continue to work tirelessly on products of outstanding quality and support you through continuous innovation in optimizing your production processes.

We look forward to celebrating this anniversary properly later in the year, even if this may not be possible around the actual birthday in July.

On behalf of the entire management team

Dr. Jens-Jörg Eßer
Managing Director
