In 1942 Earl Putrow, a self-taught inventor living in Northern Wisconsin, was selling motors, belts, pulleys and tooling gadgets through his garage-based company, Putrow Industrial Supply. Earl would display his wares at all key trade shows. At these shows, he would bring along a showpiece item he dubbed “The Hypneumat”. The Hypneumat was cleverly coined from three existing words: hydraulic, pneumatic and automatic. Over the years, the accuracy and durability of the units have been improved, and the same sturdy, simple design of Earl Putrow’s original Hypneumat is found at the heart of the more than a dozen basic designs and countless customizations available.
Hypneumat takes pride in the well-trained craftsmen and journeymen machinists who work at Hypneumat. Personal pride and integrity are part of every operation, from order taking to shipping.
