Creative bending solutions since 1903

1900 to 1980

Founding of Gebrüder Schwarze

From 1930

Production of tube cold bending machines by Peter Wirtz


Acquisition of Peter Wirtz; company renamed Schwarze Wirtz


Production of the world’s first CNC tube bending machine

1980 to 2000

Production of the world’s first multi-radius bending machine; equipped with multi-radius bending tools, it is used to manufacture tubes with differing radii and bend-in-bend systems with minimal refitting times


Development of the transport boost, now the standard for improving bending results at smaller radii


Merger with Robitec; company renamed Schwarze-Robitec

Development of the first twin machine with two bending heads for the left-and-right bending of complex tubes and tube serpentines

2000 to 2020

Development of the first fully electric tube bending machine


Development of multi-level-bending technology for shipbuilding; the various nominal diameters of the tools eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly refitting and adjustment


Construction of the world’s largest membrane tube wall bending machine for the cost-effective production of power plant combustion chambers


Millions invested in a new high-performance drilling and milling centre to strengthen the company’s own value chain


Development and presentation of the latest generation of control systems


Subsidiary established in the USA; the North American sales and service team starts work
