Design & Development


When designing the automation of a machine, Klüppelberg GmbH & Co.KG undertakes the overall planning and design in the areas of customising PLC control, motors and drives, switchgear,including climate control, programming the software for PLC and CNC machine cycles, tool and workpiece administration, ...

We also monitor the construction of the substation, through external service providers, at our company. This keeps downtime or time out for troubleshooting at the customer's site to a minimum during the upgrading and modernization.

When configuring the customisation control we use devices from well-known manufacturers such as Siemens, Heidenhain or Fanuc, to name just some of the most important. In the field of CNC, these are usually Sinumerik range from Siemens, but also products of the manufacturer Fidia, which has a strong presence in the automotive industry.

 Special designs customized!


The Klüppelberg Safety Concept

Since January 2010 new official machine guidelines are in force, which all machine operators are required to comply with. This applies in particular to overhauled or upgraded old plants. Here Klüppelberg GmbH & Co.KG has already developed successful safety concepts.

Our concept has already been attested to by the Engineering Employers' Liability Insurance Association, Mannheim, in regard to machine tools of a leading press manufacturer in Würzburg.

We offer here a practical approach, which will continue to operate the machines to the greatest possible extent in Mode 3 and 4.

Our concept is based on the "Safety Integrated" solutions from Siemens and equipment from the Dina company.

 Our own ideas have established our place in the market!



Focus of the work of Klüppelberg GmbH & Co.KG are large and heavy machine tools.

Both our history and the fact that over 50% of our team were employed at the former Hermann Kolb Maschinenfabrik, Cologne, between 1980 and 2000 (some also served apprenticeships there) are part of our core competence, the know-how of the products, Cubimat, Varimat, Pentamat MAKROMAT and PFZ.

Thanks to our design department the Kolb idea and Kolb machines are not only still alive, but have enjoyed in many cases further development up to the state of the art, and play an important role in modern production.

Furthermore we construct standard and special processing attachments for vertical and horizontal machine tools.

 We develop highly individual machine components in Lot Size No.1.

This includes the upgrade of complex systems. Functioning machines can be brought up to the state of the art.

 We offer service in series and exclusive solutions!
