Since it was founded in 1990, FMB Feinwerk- und Messtechnik GmbH has developed into a successful system provider for equipment used for conducting research with synchrotron radiation. More than 50 employees are highly skilled with the knowledge required for dealing with vacuum and beamline technology.
Our engineers and technicians are always setting themselves new challenges, and go right to the limits of the technically feasible.
Getting internationally-respected experts actively and heavily involved in the development and testing of our products ensures that the latest scientific findings are available and also that there is a good understanding of the needs of our customers.
Different welding methods, such as MAG, TIG or microplasma welding, can also be used whenever necessary. Electron beam and laser welding are done by experienced partners. High-quality soldering work is done in our own clean high-vacuum furnace. FMB can also offer the right quality when soldering different materials and combinations of high-grade steel, copper, Glidcop or ceramic.
All production parts are cleaned vacuum-proof. The corresponding laboratories are equipped with water demineralisation plants, ultrasound baths and circulating air drying ovens. Components up to four and a half metres in length can be cleaned in these. FMB ensures its equipment meets the high requirements in terms of cleanness and purity by conducting assembly in separate, low-particle-count or clean rooms.
FMB uses the latest test engineering and air-conditioned measurement labs: - Metric surveying using stationary and mobile 3D coordinate measurement equipment - Verification of the residual magnetic permeability using Foerster probes and low-mu indicators - Vacuum testing including baking, leakage tests, determination of the specific desorption rate and of the residual gas mass spectrum - Pressure tests and Functional tests - Visual inspection, using a video-endoscope
The offer - Extensive customer service even during the preparation phase of projects - Integration of external scientists, experts and consultants - Development, engineering, manufacture and testing - Installation, testing and commissioning at the customer’s location - Training and transfer of know-how - Flexible service
