Made in Germany. For global markets.

We are an innovation and growth-oriented company with an excellent international reputation in fluid mechanics.

Our core competencies are development, production, control engineering and after sales service. A major share of our revenue is generated outside Germany, on all continents of the world. Globalisation or – in other words – the worldwide interlacing of markets affects us personally on a day-to-day basis. For us, it means mutual respect and international allegiance. Respect and trust are key requirements for successfully completing demanding projects based on cooperation.

Research & Development

As a quality-conscious innovative market driver we continually invest in our in-house applied research and development. Aside from system solutions, we concentrate on material research, flow simulation and measuring engineering.

Examples of our research work include the HETICO compressor, which for the first time combines impeller and motor in the same casing, and the magnet bearing compressor MAHECO, which is used in high-speed silicon production applications.

Quality is paramount. An important focus of our R&D activities is the development of fluidics-optimised impellers using CFD (computational fluid dynamics).


High tech at our customers' service

  • Metrological characteristic line determination and optimisation
  • Stress calculations
  • Impeller strength and strain gauge measurements
    1. Oscillation examinations (modal analysis) on impellers
    2. Casing calculations
    3. Oscillation-based design of base frames
  • Numerical flow simulation (CFD) to optimise our impellers and casings
  • Fluidic performance measurements
  • Sound measurements
  • Software development as project engineers' tool

Planning & Design – Precision analysis. Customised conception.

The field of fluid mechanics is a complex one.

What are the challenges involved, for instance, with regard to existing plants and infrastructures? What are the technical requirements, in respect of reliability, stability, safety? What special conditions must be taken into account, climate, environmental and site influences?

Our analyses draw on decades of experience in fluid mechanics and processes, e.g. in the petrochemical, organic fuel, chemical, pharmaceutical, iron and steel and energy sectors.

Optimum working for customised solutions.

As a confirmed solution-oriented company, we focus on technological compliance and flexibility as our guiding principles. So you can rest assured that we also achieve the optimum solution when working with other makes.

Co-developing customised solution approaches with FIMA pays off. As soon as we have jointly defined all the criteria relevant to the project, we get down to work and design reliable systems and system components that are tailored to your requirements.

Technology trailblazer. Our products have to satisfy the highest standards. Day in, day out, year in, year out.

At FIMA, our principle has always been to accept nothing less than excellent quality in our products. Our systems and system components form part of our customers’ highly sophisticated plants. Our products must blend in seamlessly with their respective technological environment in order to ensure smooth production and processing. We meet this responsibility with the greatest precision.

Extreme requirements spectrum.

FIMA is world market leader in the Zone 0 blower sector for transporting of permanently explosive gases. This also says a lot about our promise of quality. After all, anyone with a leading edge in areas with such extreme requirements, is sure to guarantee availability and a long service life when it comes to other technical challenges.

Quality by FIMA

Premium quality is one of FIMA's foremost corporate goals, and it is crucial to company success in the long term. For FIMA, quality means fully satisfying the requirements and wishes of our customers. This is ensured by recording and taking into account all customer expectations and requirements at an early stage.

Quality starts with the mindset and inner attitude of each individual employee. Only our customers and their customers respectively judge the quality of our service. The prerequisites for quality are a shared vision, and the will of each employee to ensure maximum quality. All employees are thus part of the quality system. Their ideas to improve our work processes and products make a fundamental contribution to our company’s success.
