2016

ROPEX turns 40. The success story continues.

2016

UL certification for ROPEX temperature controllers with an EtherNet/IP and PROFINET interface.

2015

ROPEX moves into new premises; two sites are combined into one.

2012

New generation of temperature controllers with a certified interface (EtherNet/IP, PROFINET) for machine control systems in complex networks.

2009

ROPEX wins the German Packaging Award 2009 in the “Machine Technology” category.

2006

The first UPT sealing bar is manufactured at our new plant.

2005

A new production facility is built specifically for our CIRUS technology, to meet customer demands for larger sizes, shorter delivery times and more pioneering innovations.

2000

Market launch of our “CIRUS” technology – with ULTRA-PULSE heat sealing tools and a wide range of silicone profiles for the counter bar and the seam geometry.

1997

The decision is taken to develop the 400 series of fully digitalized RESISTRON controllers. Special temperature controllers are also designed for our CIRUS heating elements.

1996

Research and development work is carried out on heating elements in thick-film technology.
The result: highly dynamic heating elements based on steel substrates, for which various patent applications are submitted in the course of the year.

1993

Circuits start to go digital – and microprocessors are now used in all ROPEX controllers.

1991

Move to new premises in “Gansäcker 21”.

1985

ROPEX becomes a private limited company and is renamed ROPEX-Industrieelektronik GmbH.

1984

Continuous improvements are made to the RESISTRON series, which now also features a temperature gauge. The 200 series is extended to include 15 different models with functionalities to meet the most diverse market requirements.
