Bruno Zwingenberger Platinenfabrik

Since 1870, Bruno Zwingenberger Platinenfabrik has stood for quality and reliability in the field of precision stampings for textile machines and the manufacture of needle and sinker units.

Many years of experience in toolmaking and stamping technology have made us a competent partner for our customers.


Founded in 1870 by Bruno Zwingenberger as one of the world's first sinker factories in Limbach/Sa. Initially only sinkers for the following textile machine types were manufactured:

  • Cottonmachines

  • Circular knitting machines

  • Warp knitting and Raschel machines

  • Stitch-bonding machines

  • Small circular knitting machines

In 1993, the product range for the textile industry and textile machine construction was expanded and new products were added, incorporating the experience gained in toolmaking and stamping technology:

  • Production of sinker and needle units for stitch-bonding machines

  • Battery contacts and connectors for the electronics and electrical industry

  • Precision stamped and stamped-bent parts for mechanical engineering and safety engineering


In addition to blanks and sockets for textile machine construction and the textile industry, our product range also includes precision stampings for other branches of mechanical engineering as well as the electronics and electrical industries and safety engineering.
