Expert for coating thickness measurement, XRF analysis, nanoindentation, scratch testing & more

"Measuring Made Easy". According to this motto, Helmut Fischer has been developing and manufacturing measuring instruments for coating thickness measurement, material analysis, materials testing and microhardness for industry and laboratories since 1953. The inventive spirit of the founder, Helmut Fischer, is an integral part of Fischer's corporate culture to this day. It all started with a handheld device for measuring coating thickness. In 1981 the first XRF X-ray fluorescence measuring instrument for precise, non-destructive coating thickness measurement and XRF material analysis was launched. Further measuring and test instruments from the field of nanoindentation and scratch testing, as well as automated measuring solutions, followed.

Broad product portfolio with handheld devices, XRF spectrometers, benchtop instruments, automation & more

The Fischer product portfolio includes measurement technology from the areas of coating thickness measurement, XRF analysis, nanoindentation, scratch testing, conductivity measurement, ferrite content determination and others. Starting with handheld devices for quick coating thickness measurement in corrosion protection, through XRF spectrometers for simple gold testing or XRF analysis in electroplating to automated high-end systems in the electronics industry. Our measuring and analysis instruments are easy to use, highly precise and extremely reliable - this is how you can measure us!
