Pfeiffer Vacuum has been setting standards in vacuum technology for 130 years. Science and industry have benefited equally from the numerous innovations developed and successfully brought to the market by this long-established company. The best example of this is the turbomolecular pump, which was developed by the company in 1958 and has been indispensable in the market ever since. Thanks to its expertise, Pfeiffer Vacuum is still the world market and technology leader in this field.
The vacuum specialist has been characterised by its pioneering spirit and passion from the very beginning. When Arthur Pfeiffer founded the company in Wetzlar, Germany, in 1890, he initially devoted his attention to the production of remote ignition systems for gas lamps. Once electric light bulbs had established themselves on the market, the company founder quickly turned his attention to the new lighting technology that led him to look at the vacuum technology used in its production. Arthur Pfeiffer quickly recognized the significance that vacuum technology could have in practically all areas of industry and research – and he subsequently concentrated entirely on this field.
Today, Pfeiffer Vacuum products still stand for high-tech solutions with excellent reliability and efficient performance. Customers such as the Max Planck Institute, CERN, XFEL and EADS are proof of this reliability – vacuum pumps made by the Asslar-based manufacturer are even in use in the ISS space station.Hier finden Sie mehr über:
