Born as an Italian - Swiss company, since its foundation in 1954 Cisam - Ernst has established and developed business relationships and collaboration with all countries in the world: an exchange that has favored the growth in terms of skills and technology as well as business.
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.
