Starting life on October 1st, 1929, the Wohlhaupter Company was found by Emil Wohlhaupter as a small workshop in Stuttgart-Feuerbach where, in a small rented room, a service to recondition cutting and stamping tools was established. By 1936 a move had been made to a small factory and the first boring head, marketed as the "UPA", put on the market. Of universal appeal, the head was intended for use on all types of milling machine and, due to its accuracy, jig borers as well, By the 1950s the company were acknowledged as amongst the world leaders in the field and, during the 1960s to the 2000s, developed a range of tooling solutions to meet modern demands - details of these can be found on the company's web site.Very high-resolution pictures - may take time to open
