Heinrich Bareiß founded the company with focus on the production of mechanical hardness testers.
the first stand, the BS 61, was released onto the market. Today, it is still made in almost the same way.
Bareiss introduces a universal testing device with a timing control and a safety stop feature. This patented device was developed especially for concave and convex materials, according to Shore A, B, 0 and D. Two years later, its measuring range was extended once again, to IRHD micro, normal and soft.
Brigitte Wirth and Peter Strobel were appointed managing directors of the 2nd generation.
the U72/94A test device is manufactured as a further development of the U72/80E with an automatic probing system for IRHD.
Peter Strobel initiated the accreditation of Bareiss as the first official DKD calibration laboratory in Germany according to DIN EN 45001 for calibrations of the measurement category of hardness, according to Shore DIN 53505 and IRHD DIN 53519.
we developed the testing device IRHD Micro Compact with a patented start-up system and handwheel.
Bareiss introduced the new digi test device, the most flexible and state of the art hardness tester worldwide. This impressive modular fully automatic tester offers measuring units for the entire Shore and IRHD ranges
the handheld hardness tester HPE II set new standards. The HPE II transmitted the measured values wirelessly to a computer, being equipped with a patented compression system.
Bareiss founded a sales subsidiary in Hong Kong, to service the Asian market from here.
we opened our branch in Shanghai, China.
our company founder Heinrich Bareiss died in December at the age of 88. Since his company was founded in 1954, he has been and still is an invaluable role model for us, with his visions, ideas, and determination.
the 3rd generation of the HPE was released onto the market. The digital handheld hardness tester HPE III determines not only the hardness but also the temperature of the test specimen, as well as the ambient temperature and humidity.
we presented the HDA325 in May, a test device for hardness and density measurement, under production conditions of up to 4000 samples per day. At the end of the year, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our DKD/DAkkS laboratory.
With Katrin Shen and Oliver Wirth, the management of the company is now at its 3rd generation.
Bareiss USA, Inc. is founded, based in Arden, North Carolina.
we opened our new, modern production building. The state-of-the-art extension has, among other things, an air conditioning system for exhausting the machines, as well as cooling and heating the production hall. The administration building is serviced by an air heat pump.
Bareiss expanded its operation and service in Asia. For this purpose, we have established Bareiss Taiwan.
