Tradition and innovation are not opposites – but two sides of the same coin. At ADVUX Software GmbH that is actual reality. Founded in 2015, we feel committed to a company tradition lasting over 200 years. It was an internal project for the new development of the device software for the tensiometer, contact angle and foam measuring devices of KRÜSS GmbH from which ADVUX Software GmbH emerged as a spin-off.
The family business KRÜSS GmbH, owner-managed for eight generations and based in Hamburg, goes back to an optical workshop founded in 1796. In the long history of the company various inventions came about in the area of measuring technology and optics. These include among others a “wonder camera” based on the magic lantern popular all over the world, the first processor-controlled tensionmeter and the first instrument for mobile, fully automatic measurement of the free surface energy of solids. Together with its headquarters in Hamburg, KRÜSS GmbH has branches and representation in 27 countries and runs its own laboratories as well as a training centre on interface chemistry.
