The machine tool industry is a small sector with a big impact. Almost all technical products are manufactured with the help of machine tools - one reason why the machine tool is considered to be »the ultimate machine«.

Berthold Leibinger, longtime managing partner of the machine tool and technology company TRUMPF, investigates the development of the machine tool industries of Germany, Japan and the United States since 1960. Key factors such as innovations, the importance of science and the training of employees are all examined. The structure of the machine tool industry and their characteristics are highlighted. In addition to the author's own experiences during his working life, numerous discussions held with experts and company representatives have also been taken into consideration.
This analysis of the machine tool industry's development in three different countries also mentions numerous influential factors that lead to success or failure. From these, Berthold Leibinger derives recommended measures for managers of machine tool companies.

Berthold Leibinger was born in Stuttgart in 1930. On graduating from high school he did an apprenticeship with TRUMPF & Co. before going on to study Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Stuttgart from 1951 to 1957. After spending several years in Cincinnati, USA working for the world's largest machine tool company at that time, he was appointed head of the engineering division at TRUMPF in 1961. In 1966 Berthold Leibinger became Technical director and managing partner at TRUMPF; in 1978 he became Chairman of the Managing Board; and from 2005 to 2012 he was Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the TRUMPF Group.
