The Orbital Forming process was developed by Mr. G. Bodmer of BK-Taumel who applied for the respective patent in Washington D.C. on December 3, 1962.
On March 16, 1965, the United States Patent Office issued Patent No. 3,173,281 to Mr. G. Bodmer or assigns.
The first orbital forming machine in America was supplied in 1965 to an automotive components manufacturer in Indiana.
In May 1967, TAUMEL was founded as a New York Corporation for the express purpose of introducing and marketing its line of orbital headforming equipment, offering many benefits and advantages over any conventional assembly method.
Today, TAUMEL ASSEMBLY SYSTEMS continues to supply a complete line of orbital machines and modular units for system integration, designed and precision-built in the U.S.A.
The program includes a wide choice of multispindle systems and many options to meet the customer's production needs.
Taumel is excited and encouraged by the innovation and advances in technology and the quality of manufacturing which are occurring in the industries which we serve.
Increasingly stringent requirements mandated by government place additional burdens on manufacturers, especially those in the Automotive, Aeronautical and Medical fields, to meet higher standards in manufacturing while maintaining efficiency and increasing productivity.
Taumel is proud to have been chosen by so many major companies to help them meet these new challenges.
Taumel's Orbital Forming has the advantage that it can accomplish tasks by using much less forming pressure than a conventional press so that assembled parts maintain their integrity without deformation or damage.
Taumel's advanced PC-controlled assembly equipment is helping our customers to maintain consistency in processing while it also provides effective error-proofing. Taumel's equipment can save both time and materials which leads to greater efficiency and productivity.
Taumel is looking forward to being deeply involved in the exciting future developments and advances in the manufacturing industries.
