21st June 2013 was the 80th anniversary of the founding of the company Memmert in Schwabach. The perfect excuse to do a little detective work and to continue the company's history. The culture of our company was characterised by the founder, Willi Memmert.
His wealth of invention, his courage, his international attitude, but also his self-conception in dealing responsibly with employees still live on today.
From the very beginning, innovations from the company Memmert set standards in temperature control technology.
What began over six decades ago with the then highly precise mechanical controller and the decentralised heating concept, is being resolutely continued with the first in-house developed electronic controller, the first vacuum drying oven with digital pressure control and the use of the revolutionary Peltier technology. In the new Millennium, user-friendliness, ease of programming and communication are focues on during development. With Generation 2012 appliances, Memmert continues ist technological leadership in these fields.
The sterilisers and ovens, especially the processing of the rounded doors, is a masterly achievement in craftsmanship.
The high-precision mechanical controller is just as revolutionary as the new heating concept: The inner chamber consists of deep-drawn swages behind which the heating coils are inserted decentrally.
The potential of automation was recognised at an early stage and deployed for an economical, and at the same time, variable production.
Bending machines now make possible the insertion of angular doors; the casings, in accordance with contemporary styles, are painted in pastel shades.
Water baths complete the ever growing range of products.
Aluminium is now replaced by high-grade recyclable stainless steel for the inner chamber and casing. Customers benefit from more stability, the greatest possible hygiene and ease of cleaning. From 1974, with the new, highly modern production in Büchenbach, it is also possible to produce specially customised products economically.
A completely new design with an outer casing made of robust, structured stainless steel. The operating displays provide new convenience with their visual status displays, and later with digital temperature display. The doors are decoupled thermically from the outside and heating elements are protected from moisture by the closed swages.
An absolute first in temperature control technology: As one of the first manufacturers worldwide, Memmert adds in-house developed electronic PID controllers to its range of products. Since electronics production also takes place in-house, the controllers are subject to the highest quality requirements.
The introduction of vacuum ovens with digital pressure control and cooling incubators with Peltier technology in the year 2000 are prominent milestones in temperature control technology. Just as extraordinary is the noble design of Generation 2003, a combination of glass and stainless steel. Even thanks to the Peltier technology, Memmert is still one step ahead. The HPP constant climate chamber with humidity control is presented at the Analytica 2008. In 2009, the Peltier cooling unit for waterbaths follows.
