Career engineering: Significant design of sound tape Ribbon
Pfleumer has developed a process for placing metal stripes on Ciggarette paper, and reasoned that he could be the same magnetic strip mantle, which would be used as an alternative to wire recording. In 1927, after experimenting with various materials, Pfleumer used a very thin paper that he coated with iron oxide powder and used lacquer as an adhesive.

On the invention he received a patent in 1928. On December 1, 1932 Pfleumer was awarded AEG the right to use his invention while constructing the first practical tape recorder in the world, called Magnetophon K1. The tool was first demonstrated at IFA in 1935.
