At the time, they could not have known this would be the genesis of the modern machinery industry in Bad Urach. From these humble beginnings, the companies Magura and Uraca emerged.

The Krumm & Magenwirth Maschinen-Werkstätte developed their own 3.5 HP horizontal gasoline engine to drive their machine tools. This piston engine laid the foundation for generations of plunger pumps.

Pumps for the ISS

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018 von admin

Liquid pumps made by KNF were on board an HTV-7 unmanned cargo spacecraft launched from Japan on September 23, 2018, destined for the International Space Station (ISS). These space-worthy liquid pumps are part of a new Life Support Rack for the ISS. Also known as an Advanced Closed Loop System (ACLS), the rack purifies air and produces oxygen for the ISS. It was developed by Airbus Defence and Space for the European Space Agency (ESA). The new ACLS rack will be installed in the ISS’s Destiny module (also known as the US Lab) by ESA astronaut and ISS commander Alexander Gerst on November 2, 2018.

KNF-Engineers worked with Airbus for four years to specify and design the pump, which is based on the proven FEM 1.09 dosing pump. The project was part of Airbus’s COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) program, which uses well-established components to reduce the price tag for space flight.
