A pioneering invention

A friend of the Wörner family asked for help in finding a way to damp the recoil of his hunting rifle. While investigating a possible solution, Helmut Wörner realized that he could apply the same damping concept to industrial manufacturing.

In the following years he developed the very first stopper with pneumatic damping. The technology was patented in Germany 1990, creating the basis for a success story that continues to this day.

Today, we make and market the fourth generation of this pneumatically damped stopper: the DBS-20/60.
