STRECON® Technology was established as a separated business unit from the parent company Danfoss A/S in 1986, and with inital sales in neighboring European countries. The company has initiated its overseas sales to Japan and the United States in the early 90´ties.
The history of STRECON® tool technology originates in the research project "Safe Forging Tools" conducted by Dr. Jens Grønbæk at the Danish Technical University in Copenhagen (DTU).
The theory of the stripwinding principle had been described and proved with the first prototypes of stripwound tool systems.
