With the acquisition of two further medical technology companies in Switzerland, KLINGEL medical metal in Pforzheim has further enhanced its power to perform and expanded its manufacturing and service portfolio in the medtech market: In December 2018, the specialist for metal precision in the medical industry bought the company Gehring Cut AG, based in Matzingen/canton Basel country, contract manufacturer for surgical instruments and tools for orthopaedics and trauma, as well as in March 2019 the company Bächler Feintech AG, based in Hölstein/canton Thurgau, contract manufacturer for tools and surgical instruments for orthopaedics and dental technology. The company Josef Ganter Feinmechanik GmbH in Dauchingen has been part of the Klingel medical metal group since 2015. That has increased the production area over all four plants to around 21.000 m² with over 600 employees.
We'll have a short season's break. Our company will be closed from 12 to 16 August 2019. Please dispose you requests and orders in a good time.
We wish all our customers and partners happy holidays and a beautiful summer time.
Your Klingel team
Pforzheim, 15 May 2019. With around 250 exhibitors and 3000 attendees, the tradeshow T4M can still be improved after its first launch, as the organiser and exhibitors sum up with a look at the popularity. At the premiere of the new medical technology tradeshow in Stuttgart, the sister companies Klingel medical metal and Gehring Cut were represented together under the roof of the Klingel medical metal group. Their twin booth space was situated within the joint stand of the WSP Pforzheim (Wirtschaft und Stadtmarketing). After a restrained first show day, the visitor frequency increased significantly at the joint stand as well as at the co-exhibitors Klingel medical metal and Gehring Cut. Students of the high schools in Stuttgart and Pforzheim got informed during their guided tour by the member companies of the cluster "Hochform" for precision technology about their products, application fields and innovation strength. Moreover, there have been promising contacts with manufacturers of implants, instruments and tools for orthopaedics and und surgical operations, which will be consequently followed up by the sales managers of Klingel medical metal and Gehring Cut.
After the premiere last year, Klingel medical metal was again exhibitor at the ICI-Meeting in Tel Aviv. The two-day expert forum in the David Intercontinental Convention Center was an ideal platform to establish new contacts to the Israeli medical sector.
Klingel medical metal has again taken its chances to explore and be involved in the innovations that will shape the future of cardiovascular systems. Over the last two decades, Israel has become a medical “start-up nation”. ICI’s dynamic and scientific environment which allows rich exchanges on innovations has contributed to this process by facilitating global interaction between physicians, entrepreneurs, academia and industry and by building bridges leading to innovation.
Besides the renowned big player in the medical sector and their R&D departments, especially many young companies, looking for experienced and reliable suppliers, were among the attendees. As Klingel medical metal has been manufacturing components for cardiovascular systems for renowned market players and documenting its capabilities on the booth, many interesting talks with potential customers could be held.
Around 120,000 visitors enjoyed an offer that was more extensive and international than ever before at the leading fairs of the medical industry, which took place from 12 to 15 November 2018. 5,273 exhibitors from 66 countries and an international share of more than 80 percent mean a new record for MEDICA. COMPAMED also seamlessly continued its record run with 783 exhibitors from 40 states.
As in the last year, Klingel medical metal was represented with its own booth at the MD&M in Minneapolis, one of the greatest international trade fairs for medical components, devices and equipment. During the event from 31st October to 1st November 2017, over 600 exhibitors and about 5500 attendees could be counted. Klingel's general manager Christoph Lenze could establish some new contacts to the American medical industry, among them for endoscopic and cardiovacsular systems, 3D printing and micro implants.
Many thanks to everyone who stopped at our booth at the Minneapolis Convention Center!

For the second time, Klingel medical metal was exhibiting on Medical Technology Ireland in Galway. Already in September 2017, when the tradeshow had opened for the first time, the OEM-manufacturer was among the exhibitors. Within two years, Medical Technology Ireland has developed to the second largest exhibition in Europe. 200 exhibitors and 1200 visitors came to the Galway Racecours on 27 and 28 September to exchange infomation on new trends and production technologies. The floor space was extended, and Klingel medical metal got a perfect position on the ground floor within the pavilion of its sales partner David Schnur Associates, to benefit from all possible synergies and to intensify the cooperation with Ireland, UK and Israel. The precision technology manufacturer from Pforzheim showed the whole spectrum of its value creation chain and could therefore generate interesting contacts and enquiries from the hightech medical sector. The applications ranged from cardiovascular and robot aided systems to minimally invasive surgery. The picture shows General Manager Christoph Lenze at our booth.
Specific enquiries from one of the greatest US medtech tradeshows
Once more Klingel medical metal has been exhibiting for three days on MD&M West in Anaheim/CA, one of the greatest contract manufacturing tradeshows of medtech industry worldwide. The fair shows all fields of production and service, from special software over product design and different manufacturing processes including surface treatment up to packagung and logistics.

It was an interesting "market of opportunities", also for Klingel medical metal: The ICI meeting in Israel. For the first time, the specialist for CNC-machining was exhibiting the products and processes along its value creation chain on this forum for medical technology on December 4 and 5 in the David Convention Center in Tel Aviv. Besides a series of sepecialized lectures with focus on cardiovascular technologies and operations, there was enough time for qualified dicsussions at the booths in the foyers. Among the 30 exhibitors and 2000 attendees has also been the who's who of the scene, furthermore some startups who underlined the innovation strength of the Israeli founder scene in the medical sector. "We noticed a strong interest for prototyping and entered in negociations with new potential customers", general manager Christoph Lenze expressed his satisfaction after the two days of the show.
