KLINGELNBERG GmbH (former HÖFLER Maschinenbau GmbH) – this name has been standing for innovation, continuity in quality and service as well as for economic and ergonomic working in the field of gear grinding.
Latest technology is developed and then scrutinized in close cooperation with qualified suppliers in the shortest possible time in our high-capacity grinding and hobbing center. 
The former HÖFLER Maschinenbau GmbH was established by Dr.-Ing. Willy Höfler in Ettlingen in 1959.
While the company first of all concentrated on gear testing technology, already in 1966 the first HÖFLER gear grinder was introduced to interested experts. What began modestly grew in the following years to a company offering a wide gear grinding machine program for almost all gear sizes and applications. Since 2003 the company has been also offering a program of gear hobbing machines type HF from 900 mm in diameter. Right from the start KLINGELNBERG surpassed the competition already renowned in this field with the trend-setting combination of proven and technically mature components and sensational technical innovations such as the torque motor table drive. In the first five years more than 60 gear hobbers were sold.

HÖFLER Maschinenbau GmbH was taken over by KLINGELNBERG GmbH at 01.08.2012.

To date more than 1550 HÖFLER machines have been supplied.
