For more than 60 years, Ober has been designing, manufacturing and marketing:
portable compressed air tools, pneumatic motors, automated machinery and systems for drilling, tapping, threading and screwing; power screwdrivers with electronic torque control.
Our advanced product lines and pre- and after-sales services are second to none and are backed by forty years experience. Forty years which have seen OBER grow to become a leader on the Italian market and a company which is also expanding strongly throughout Europe. All this because we know how to earn and win the trust of our customers by meeting and satisfying their needs.
Our history History
Customer satisfaction has been our primary mission for over 60 years. The know-how and major investments in research and development have contributed to making the Company what it is today – a leading supplier of innovative products and services to leading sectors of industry.
The company OBER was born in 1952, by deriving from a sole proprietorship to artisan character, carrying out machining and equipment sub-contract manufacturing, whose name coincided with that of the founder: "Officina Bentivogli Romeo".
Starts the design and manufacture of portable pneumatic tools.
In the early 70 ’s the design and manufacture of portable pneumatic tools, air motors, becomes the only business.
Starting a distribution policy, and new industries, as well as abroad, and a development of OEM and/or custom products has resulted in a significant growth in the total turnover of the company and the implementation of new products and new applications.
OBER has developed in order to provide its customers with diversified products and services throughout the national territory and to distribute their products with significant shares in Europe and a lower extent in the rest of the world, including the Far East. OBER developed some "niches", highly specialized, above all that of application technology of threaded rivets, for which it is estimated that there are between OBER complete systems and components supplied by other manufacturers, in at least 50% of equipment sold on the world market.
2000 / 2010
OBER studied and subsequently designed a new line of products for the electronic control of assembly processes, with particular reference to screwing controlled in torque/angle, called "Co.SMO". In the project, which saw its first phase of construction in February 2008, Ober has invested an amount equal, on average, to 4% of turnover. Research and development is an integral part, central and not an ancillary structure so, even in periods of slowdown, such as the last four months of 2008 and 2009, the Company did not cut investments in research costs, that, obviously increased their percentage of percentage of value of production.
2010 / Oggi
ELECTRONICS BECOMES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF OBER ACTIVITY. OBER combines the traditional know-how mechanic a second, indispensable expertise, namely in the electrical and electronic field. In particular, it develops significantly the activities of PLC tuning, which constitute the control device for automatic systems for screwing, optimizing the management software, to improve the efficiency of the systems themselves. In particular, the company has developed the use of electronic cards for driving brushless motors, opening of fact a new phase, oriented to the development of cordless tools.
