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


Neuprodukte 2020 - 17.12.2020


 

Continuous innovation in micro tooling


Hobe GmbH is constantly expanding its catalog program with innovative new tool geometries and clamping systems.

To significantly improve service life and shorten cycle times, we have expanded our tourin® thread whirling program to include single-row whirling tools with a large number of teeth. They are available as partial profile (WHN) and full profile (WHM). Additional focus was placed on an increase in stability through a short design with a conical transition to the shaft diameter.

Within the broachin® tools product group, we have expanded our standard program with the BRM single-tooth punch for slotting hexagonal profiles. Several wrench sizes can be realized with one tool. This enables us to achieve increased flexibility while at the same time reducing the need for various tools.

With the DHY holder for our borin® system we are adding a hydraulic expansion holding system for shank diameters of 4 and 6 mm to our portfolio. For special applications where increased vibrations can occur in the tool, this system provides targeted damping and thus improves the surface quality that can be achieved on the workpieces to be machined.

For further information on these and other innovations
please also refer to our Hobe new product flyer.

All new products will be soon available in our web shop.

3D-Tool Data - Fit for industy 4.0! - 17.04.2018

 

 

A CAD/CAM simulation of component machining is in many cases inevitable today. Which tool is selected and whether it can be used is therefore already being investigated and defined by the NC programmer during the planning phase.

In order to support this process, it is now more important than ever to support customers by providing meaningful 3-dimensional models.

What has so far been a matter of course for newly designed customized tools has now been taken up by the company Hobe also for the largest product group from the standard delivery program. 3D-models for all turning tools of the borin® system are now available on request in the exchange format STEP. These are also available in other file formats on demand.
