About us

Käfer Messuhrenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1932 as a mechanical workshop for dial gauges.

Today, Käfer Messuhrenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG is the largest independent manufacturer of dial gauges and gauge devices in Europe with more than 100 employees at our headquarter (Villingen-Schwenningen in Germany, near the Southern Black Forest).

With our many years of expertise in design, manufacture and quality control, we manufacture according to the latest production standards and with consistently high quality.
The big variety of different Käfer Dial Gauges is sold through our broad network of retailers worldwide.

We do not just manufacture our well-known models at the Villingen-Schwenningen location, but also special dial gauges according to customer requirements.

Since 2005, our subsidiary Käfer Dial Gauges (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. has been manufacturing two separate standard dial gauge lines MU52 / KMU 4/5TK-100 (also for the Asian market, among others). These robust and accurate models offer an interesting alternative for buyers who are looking for more economic prices combined with Käfer quality.

Our calibration and repair services in Villingen-Schwenningen provide swift and reliable maintenance for your dial gauges.
