RASI – since 1960  

The founding and development of RASI
Heinrich Rapp und Dipl. Ing. Eberhard Rapp  

The company RASI has been producing tube bending machines for craftsmen and industry since Wilhelm Rapp founded it in 1960.

The history of the RASI company has always been shaped by the constant drive for quality and innovation. In 1964 the company received the „Bavarian state prize for the manual hydraulic tube bending machine UN12“.

Tube bending experienced rapid development when the sons of the founder, Eberhard and Heinrich Rapp joined the company in 1983.

The company manufactured its first CNC controlled fully automatic mandril bending machine with a display screen control in 1984. The following years were characterised by constant development work. Today the range of production includes nearly 30 different tube bending machines.

The federal prize for „outstanding innovative achievement“ was awarded to RASI twice by the Federal Ministry for Industry in the years 1990 and 1999.

A spirit of innovation along with the necessary know-how is the recipe for success, but also the company philosophy of the two brothers in management. They are unanimous in that the close connection between our own production, research and development in cooperation with the technical colleges and universities in the region can be regarded as an important prerequisite for the rapid implementation of innovations. This success is proven by countless national and international patents and utility patents.

Last but not least, a well trained and motivated workforce as well as good cooperation with the suppliers forms the basis for the positive development of the company. Their dedication is the guarantee for the decade long and consistently high quality and readiness for delivery of the RASI tube bending machines. The customers thank RASI with their decade long loyalty and the further recommending of our machines.

The machines produced in Illingen are sold throughout the world. RASI machines are used on every continent. The aim of this company is to assert itself on the global market even more strongly and to considerably raise our export turnover in the coming years.
