Pfeiffer Vacuum - Shaping the vacuum industry since 1890

Vacuum technology is indispensable for many areas of life 

Pfeiffer Vacuum 130 year Anniversary VideoAsslar, Germany, July 3, 2020. 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 characterized 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. Since then, Pfeiffer Vacuum has played a pivotal role in shaping vacuum technology.

Reliable quality for science and research
Pfeiffer Vacuum company building in Asslar, GermanyToday, 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. There, as in many other applications, the customer’s requirements are often very complex – not only with regard to the vacuum requirement itself, but also to the specifics of the system in question, the materials and products used or to be processed, and the process conditions. The focus here is always on quality. This is why vacuum solutions from Pfeiffer Vacuum undergo continuous optimization in close cooperation with customers from various industries and by means of ongoing development work. In this way, the perfect solution that meets all the requirements can be found.

Applications in all areas of life
Automotive components, smartphones, pacemakers, textiles – vacuum technology is used for all these products. Pfeiffer Vacuum solutions also play an important role in food production and in the pharmaceutical industry. Without them, it would not be possible, for example, to freeze-dry products such as instant coffee or powdered milk under vacuum.

As the only supplier of vacuum technology, the company offers a comprehensive product portfolio: from individual components to complex vacuum systems. In addition to a full range of hybrid and magnetically levitated turbopumps, the product portfolio comprises backing pumps, leak detectors, measurement and analysis devices, components as well as vacuum chambers and systems.

Products and solutions from Pfeiffer Vacuum are developed for the fields of analytics, industry, research and development, coating systems and semiconductors and are optimized for the specific application.

Dr. Eric Taberlet, Chief Executive Officer of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG: “With our durable products and customized vacuum solutions, we are able to satisfy practically every customer requirement and to establish relationships that will endure for years to come. At Pfeiffer Vacuum, ‘sustainability’ is not just an empty word. We are aware of our responsibility.
