About us

DUMETA® focuses on the development, the production and the supply of machines for rotating and positioning products. The machines are mainly for welding automation and mechanisation such as welding positioners, rotators and rotating systems. These are primarily used in mechanical engineering, the metalworking industry, but also in many other industries.

In addition, DUMETA® supplies custom-made handwheels and a cantilever rack with swivelling arms, developed in-house, for the storage of long goods.

With our own engineering department we can answer customer-specific requests and develop custom machines. DUMETA® is convinced that there is a faster, safer and easier way to position, rotate and process workpieces.

Our mission is therefore to help improve workplaces anywhere in the world.


Due to years of experience in the metalworking industry, we do not avoid any challenge. 


The foundation of DUMETA® was laid in the early 90s in a small “hobby” workshop on a farm in Saasveld, the Netherlands. The company was run by the brothers Jos and Reinier Lotgerink under the name “Gebr. Lotgerink ”. All kinds of work were carried out, varying from machine repairs to construction work and custom-made handwheels.

Due to growth, the company moved to Oldenzaal in 1997. Jos Lotgerink, who was running the company alone at the time, was always looking for machines that would make the DUMETA® production more efficient and safe. He recognized the increasing demand for similar machines in the market. Therefore, DUMETA® specialized increasingly in welding mechanization and automation solutions. The different specialities of DUMETA®, machines and handwheels, were divided into two companies. To answer customer-specific requests even better an own engineering department was set up. Together with Ivo Mulders, today's managing director, he developed the extensive product portfolio of DUMETA® which is valued by our customers today.

Since 2014, DUMETA® can be found in Germany as well in order to better serve the German market.
