For hundreds of years, salutes have been fired, both on shore and at sea, as a sign of respect and welcome.
Whether for military, religious or civilian events - up till today the firing of saluting cannons is being used to mark special occasions.
Preserving this centuries-old tradition in a sophisticated manner for the future is the aim of our corporate philosophy.
Who We Are
With a direct view of one of the numerous historical castles Hermann Maschinenbau GmbH is based in the famous Middle Rhine Valley.
Inspired by the region’s rich historical heritage, exclusive ceremonial cannons are being manufactured in the owner-managed company. Which, through the use of modern manufacturing techniques, brings together the optics and the technology of historical international saluting cannons with the needs of our time.
Range of Services: Exclusive Ceremonial Cannons & More
Our range of services covers everything from constructing - using the latest 3D-CAD programmes - up to the realisation and manufacturing.
Our modern and extensive machinery ensures the professional implementation of customer requirements at the highest level of quality - regardless of whether the salute gun will be used for civilian, military or religious salutes.
Besides building new ceremonial cannons we feel committed to the preservation of old ones and restore, overhaul and modernise older salute cannons and their equipment.
At the same time, we provide our customers with spare parts and equipment in various dimensions, like cartridges, plugging material, ignition modules, tool boxes, cleaning sets, loading presses, carriages, wheels and trailers for the transport of saluting cannons.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at our stand 4-630 in hall 4 and to providing you with further information.
