Welcome to LaserComp
Redefining Thermal Conductivity Measurement
A pioneer in thermal conductivity measurement, LaserComp has been delivering expert technology and reliable equipment since 1992. Our exclusive FOX lineup of durable thermal conductivity test instruments combines advanced sophistication with “easy-to-use” technology, making it the premier choice for nearly all of the world’s leading insulation manufacturers, including Dow Chemical, Johns Manville, Owens Corning, and many others.
LaserComp’s research and development team strives to consistently break ground on new technologies. Our enduring focus is on delivering cost effective solutions with greater precision, flexibility, and sensitivity while minimizing test times. In addition, the unique modular design simplifies service in the field.
At LaserComp, our commitment to quality and innovation is demonstrated through the use of cutting edge components and the continuous refinement of our thermal conductivity measurement equipment. Each of our thermal conductivity measurement instruments is precisely engineered and carefully inspected to provide customers with the industry-leading solutions they expect from a company that is the forerunner in thermal conductivity testing.
Linear Optical Encoders improve accuracy
The accuracy of a thermal conductivity measurement is directly affected by the precision of the measurement of sample thickness. Unlike competitive units that rely on a single analog measurement of thickness, with limited accuracy, the FOX Heat Flow Meters feature optical encoders and stepper motors for independent position control and measurement at all four plate corners. This gives the system the ability to level the plates to conform to samples with non-parallel surfaces, improving thermal contact and providing a truly representative measurement of sample thickness to within 25 µm

Why FOX Instruments Work So Well
The Technology Behind LaserComp's Industry Leading Equipment
The thermal conductivity of a specimen () is determined by measuring the heat flux, specimen thickness, and temperature difference across the specimen. In each component of the thermal conductivity equation FOX Instruments provide extremely precise readings, .6mV resolution on integrating high output heat flux transducers, 0.001” precision in thickness measurement, and 0.01°C temperature control and resolution. Each of these individual measurements is an order of magnitude more accurate than any other currently used in thermal conductivity measurement. They combine to provide the most accurate results of any heat flow meter instrument commercially available. When using our high accuracy calibration standard mode, FOX Instruments challenge and exceed the accuracy of the enormously time consuming, operator dependent, and expensive guarded hot plates.
