History

A journey through time

The impetus for the “MKL/myonic journey” started in the post-war period at KaVo Kaltenbach & Voigt in Biberach and quickly picked up speed.

KaVo wanted to manufacture the miniature ball bearings required for its dental products itself and set up its own department for this purpose. For this reason, the die was cast 10 years before the company was actually founded.
