machine tools/electric power tools
core business is machines and plants for the flexible sheet metal working to punching and transforming, for the Laserbearbeitung, for the combined punching and Laserbearbeitung and for bending. Standardized system components make automated manufacturing solutions possible. The electric power tools supplement the broad spectrum of stationary machine tools for the sheet metal working.
[work on] laser systems for cutting, welding and laser forms of three-dimensional parts, Hochleistungs-CO2-Laser as well as lamp and diode-pumped solid lasers, inscription lasers and - systems. To the industrial electronics high and medium frequency generators belong to processing to the inductive material heating up, for the surface coating and - by means of plasma technology as well as to the suggestion for laser.
in the medical technology one is represented by operation tables, surgery lamps and cover-hanging workplace systems for medical instruments.
of 1923 acquires Christian plays the trump card with two partners the mechanical workshop Julius violonist GmbH in Stuttgart. The enterprise manufactures flexible waves , which are used among other things with machines to metalworking. A further product of the company are engine-claimant Handscheren for cutting sheet metal. Increasing of the enterprise makes a removal necessary into larger production plants. The company pulls 1933 into Stuttgart suburb the Weilimdorf. During the Second World War the product program is not changed. The manufacturing plants remain intact and it about twenty French immigrant workers are employed. They experience the same treatment and remuneration as the German workers.
the enterprise of 145 coworkers employs restaurant miracle economics 1950.

The stationary machines cause an enlargement and an internationalization of the enterprise: 1963 develop in the Swiss course the first foreign company.
from Ditzingen into the world
1968 one presents the first sheet metal working machine with numeric path control with the TRUMATIC 20. It makes for the first time a work routine possible fully automatic up to the tool change. All information, which is needed for the treatment of the workpiece, is stored on paper tapes. The TRUMATIC 20 becomes on the 11. European machine tool exhibition in of Paris much considers.
One year later creates the enterprise a subsidiary in Farmington, Connecticut, in the USA. Farmington is in the meantime second largest location of the enterprise and Headquarter for the entire American market. 1972 shift the enterprise its head office after Ditzingen. 1978 become Berthold Leibinger of acting partners. The enterprise constantly grows and still creates in the same year a subsidiary in Japan.
of the seventies is established laser cuttings laser cuttings laser welding of the lasers as extremely various and flexible instrument for the treatment of sheet metals. Berthold Leibinger recognizes the potential, that in this new tools puts and forces the machine development in this direction. 1985 decide PLAY THE TRUMP CARD own CO2-Laser to build. It develops PLAYS THE TRUMP CARD for LASER TLF 1000. It had 1 KW of jet achievement and is the first compact laser resonator with suggestion for high frequency. Within fewer years the following innovations within the range of the laser development make their own society necessary: 1988 PLAY THE TRUMP CARD laser technology GmbH based.
1992 one takes part in the Haas laser GmbH in Schramberg. The enterprise belonged in the meantime to 100% to PLAY THE TRUMP CARD group. At the master seat Ditzingen becomes to 20. November 1998 a new laser factory inaugurated.
To 18. November 2005, one week before its 75. Birthday, steps professor Berthold Leibinger after 40 years responsibility for PLAYS THE TRUMP CARD group of the operational management back. It changes as a chairman into the supervisory board of the enterprise. His daughter Dr. Nicola Leibinger Kammüller becomes a new chairman of the management.
The enterprise gains a conversion of 1.4 billion euro in the financial year 2004/05. Approximately 6,100 coworkers are for PLAY THE TRUMP CARD actively.
