Why ramé-hart?

Here are some reasons why you should consider buying products from ramé-hart instrument co:

QUALITY We are obsessed with quality. No instrument or product ships from our facility without being fully tested. We use an exhaustive checklist to make sure every detail is checked and meets our stringent standards.

LEADERSHIP We have been around since 1961. We are the first company in the world to mass produce a contact angle goniometer. We are the world leader in contact angle. That's all we do. We innovate; our competitors follow. We stay on top of our game: monthly newsletters, frequent website updates, facebook page, YouTube videos, and wide exposure to new trends in surface science.

SERVICE We believe in 100% customer service. We will do everything humanly possible to deliver quality engineered products on time and at the most competitive prices. Our goal is to underpromise and over delivery.

SELECTION We offer the widest array of instrument models: from basic contact angle goniometers to advanced automated tools that are both goniometers and tensiometers. We have the widest array of modular accessories and options. 

VALUE We strive to add features and functionality while keeping our system prices competitively low. Our products are easy to learn and easy to use. 99% of our customers do not require onsite setup and training services as our tools are intuitive, powerful, and yet easy to master.

EXPERIENCE Our dedicated team has over 100 years of product development, manufacturing, and instrument sales experience. No one works harder to build an excellent product which we are proud to put our company name on.

Here are some more reasons:

Thank you very much, sir. Great thanks to your kindness and direct responses. It's proud for me to know your instrument and be a part of your user [base]. It's a great tool for researchers.

First of all, let me thank you your timely work on our recent purchase of 590 contact angle goniometer. It has arrived safely with full package, and we have already run hundreds of measurements on it...I have to say that your piece of equipment is the best contact angle goniometer I have worked so far with. It is versatile and flexible enough (including the software) to make it work the way we need and adjust to our changing needs.

Best regards,

Maxim Yutkin, PhD

We received the instrument early. Thank you so much for getting it out fast. We already have it setup and running samples. Everything is working out great and I'm very impressed with the quality of the instrument.

Thanks again,

I want to extend my sincere thanks for your hospitality and training session. Shiv and I learned a lot about the many capabilities of our goniometer and hopefully we will have projects beyond our typical surface tension measurements in the near future. Thus far, our data is looking great. I am again grateful for your help with all of our work in the past and hope you have an enjoyable summer.

I order for the entire division, and I do a lot of online ordering.  I've gotten out of the habit of doing it online because some sites are so cumbersome.  Your website was perfect, easy, thorough, and quick.  Can't get much better than that.

I bought a ramé-hart contact angle instrument this past December 2012. It was incredibly easy to 'plug and play' and start experimenting within a short time.

Thank you very much,
