The FF Fluid Forming GmbH company and the Wesselmann Group. A history of innovation.
Since 1993, the company Wesselmann Engineering has developed, designed and manufactured hydraulic and electronic control systems for renowned national and international corporations. Hydraulic installations and control systems as well as oil supply systems of special and standard designs intended to be incorporated in a system solution are supplied in compliance with the required quality standards.
Our wide product range covers
- open-loop & closed-loop control systems
- hydraulic drive systems and lube oil technology
- energy technology / heat recovery systems
- environment technology / filtration technology
In 2002, the FF Fluid Forming GmbH company was founded. As a medium-sized company located in Lastrup, a small town in the Cloppenburg district in Northern Germany, we successfully brought together competencies acquired in mechanical engineering, closed-loop electro-hydraulic control technology and sheet metal forming (hydroforming).
With a patented machine concept – the FormBalancer – we can apply closing forces of up to 80 000 kN (8000 t) at water forming pressures of up to 4000 bars. This allows the machine to produce metal sheets with complex geometrical structures. The scope of delivery consists of complete standard equipment with a total weight of up to 110 t.
