Measure according to standards

In November 2017, Fischer collaborated in the publication of the DIN 50994 standard, which, for the first time, regulates the use of the phase-sensitive eddy current method to measure the conductivity of metallic layers non-destructively.

Coating thickness measurement? There's an app for that

The pen-like PHASCOPE® PAINT is Fischer’s newest mobile measurement instrument. This handy device is designed for fast and easy coating thickness measurement and uses an App for the data analysis.

Dynamic mode – the flexible side of nanoindentation

With the new HT measuring heads for Fischer's nanoindentation systems, properties such as the elastic modulus and the storage and loss moduli can be determined quickly and easily.

Ultrasound – reveals what’s hidden

Ultrasound was used technically for the first time over 100 years ago – today it has conquered many industries.Whether in the chemical or the transport industry, for measuring on metal or glass: the handy UMP gauges are the right choice for a variety of materials.

Hard material coatings in a scratch test

Buy cheap, buy twice: that’s especially true for tools. That’s why high-quality, professional-grade cutting tools are coated with hard materials to prevent wear. Checking such coatings is a job for the scratch tester.

Circuit boards – printed progress

Multilayer PCBs from Graphic Plc, southern England, are at work today controlling power plants and saving lives in medical equipment. The quality of those mission-critical elements is controlled with the new FISCHERSCOPE XDAL® 237 SDD.

From manufactory to modern production plant

"But we’ve always done it that way!” Doesn’t it just make you want to roll your eyes? In a changing world, it can become a problem if one doesn’t question existing methods from time to time. That's why Fischer is retooling its manufacturing processes and outfitting itself for the decades to come.

The most important statistics terminology

No matter whether you’re measuring layer thickness, electrical conductivity or the composition of a material – there are always fluctuations. With Fischer devices, statistical analysis of this variation is no problem. Here’s a summary of the most important statistical parameters.

Two new trade fairs on the ­Fischer calendar

Trade fairs provide a good opportunity to exchange ideas about the needs that different industries have for measurement technology. This is why Fischer takes part in more than 60 trade fairs every year worldwide.

Going from Cr(VI) to Cr(III)

From bathroom fittings to the high-tech injection nozzles for diesel engines – chromium is beautiful, chromium is useful, chromium is everywhere. However, many chromium compounds are toxic. This is why with the new REACH regulation chromium use has to be authorized.

XAN500 – Flexible RFA measurement technology

With its updated X-RAY XAN®500, Fischer brings a unique device to market. The XAN500 is the world’s first mobile X-ray fluorescence instrument that measures metal-alloy coatings, e.g. zinc and nickel reliably and accurately.

Correctly measuring fire protection coatings

Fire protection coatings can mean the difference between life and death. With the DUALSCOPE® FMP40 and the FA70 probe, Fischer offers the ideal solution for accurately measuring unusually thick intumescent coatings on rough surfaces like those on steel beams

Industry 4.0 Quality assurance for modern industry

More than 100 years ago, when Henry Ford introduced the assembly line in his factory, he changed the working world. Today, the industry is facing another revolution, and it demands measuring instruments that can do more than just measure.

Swiss: Where clocks keep up with the times

In Northwest Switzerland, the Jura Mountains run along the border to France. A perfect place for hikers to rest and to enjoy nature. And yet, this secluded area is also home to a world-famous industry: Swiss watches.

Between Ginkgo, Gauss and Goethe

Nature and technology, art and science – Helmut Fischer’s perspective on life links these seeming contrasts with one another. At the Fischer Museum in the Sindelfingen headquarters, visitors can experience his life’s work, as well as our company's history and values.

Calibrating correctly

A gauge can only deliver correct results if it has been scrupulously calibrated. Here, we answer some questions about what you should consider when calibrating tactile gauges.
