About us LINSEIS

More than 65 years ago LINSEIS started the production of thermal analysis recorders and instruments. We have taken up the challenge with pleasure to produce the required equipment for you.

The development and manufacture of thermoanalytical instruments requires dedicated research and a high degree of precision work, for us this is a matter of course for the benefit of our customers.

The Linseis recorders were the first devices sold worldwide and are still in demand today. Recently, spare parts and pens are still being sold by a partner company.

Dr. Max Linseis aus Selb, Founder Linseis Thermal Analysis

Dr. Max Linseis – the physicist and his wife founded Linseis Messgeräte GmbH in his garage at that time, quite typical for a “start-up”. Today the company employs over 120 people at Vielitzer Strasse in Selb-Germany, in the USA and in China.

Living innovation!
