Code of Ethics

Offer completeness

The mission of Cisam-Ernst is to provide an answer to the different needs in the field of metal hardness testing through a wide range of hardness testers, accessories, specimens, indenters and spare parts, connected to the numerous solutions proposed.
In this logic, our offer extends to all types of instruments: portable hardness testers, bench hardness testers, automatic hardness testers, in-line systems and a wide variety of related products, counting more than 600 references.


The service is an integral part of the Cisam-Ernst offer in a philosophy that sees us as consultants rather than suppliers.
The elaboration of the most appropriate technical offer, the personalized adaptation of the standard tools, the ad-hoc realization of in-line hardness testing systems, and a faast after-sales service, are an expression of the close collaboration with our customers that we support throughout the whole life cycle of Ernst hardness testers.

Innovation and Patents

The company's long past, present and future are linked to its patents. More than just a company asset, ERNST patents are tangible proof of our vocation for innovation.

Quality and certifiability

We offer a high quality product, certified according to strict international standards that we have helped to improve to the benefit of the entire branch.
Our portable, bench-top and automatic hardness testers are all certifiable, allowing us to offer our customers a competitive advantage in all those markets where certification is required.
