About Us


A 3rd generation family owned business!

Although we are considered a small company by comparison to competitors in the field, our attention and reputation for customer service and satisfaction is one of the strongest in the industry.

For over 68 years KLINGER has been a leading supplier of quality scientific laboratory equipment and apparatus for physics education.

The company was founded in New York in 1955 by Dr. J. Klinger, a very talented and innovative physics professor who designed and constructed his own apparatus and experiments to teach and inspire students in what he felt was the most important branch of science, physics. Dr. J. Klinger realized that knowledge of physics, even on the most basic level would make a student perform better at whatever profession he or she chose.

Born and educated in Poland, Klinger received his Phd in 1933 from the University of Lwow. (modern day Lviv, Ukraine) While serving on it's faculty for 13 years he was a consultant to Polish firms engaging in designing and producing scientific teaching equipment, where he gained extensive knowledge and experience in creating special devices for demonstrating modern physics. He adapted Geiger counters and Wilson chambers, and created special models for their use. Klinger also helped to modernize the techniques of demonstrating physical laws in mechanics, heat, light, electricity, and radioactivity. In conjunction with Max von Laue, he worked on methods of electron-diffraction analysis.

The probability is high that a glance around any college physics lab across the US will reveal a reliable piece of apparatus or crystal model acquired from KLINGER. Our products are manufactured to last. Their quality and durability are the most effective advertising for our company. The performance of our equipment and apparatus and our commitment to customer service is the best confirmation of our fine reputation in the physics and scientific apparatus industry.

KLINGER Crystal Models have been sold for close to 70 years! We have shipped our models all over the world including some of the most prestigious national history museum's in multiple countries. All crystal model structures are still manufactured here in the USA all by hand. If you have ever had a chance to see a KLINGER crystal model then you know how amazing and beautiful they actually are!

KLINGER Scientific, a division of KLINGER has created a budget friendly physics line of complete experiments. These setups are built to last the vigorous settings in the any lab with students constant use year after year. Our instructions for use are made to help and assist the students with set up. Experiments are precise and accurate.  All experiments can set up with in minutes! Experiments can be delivered with in 45 days or sooner.

KLINGER lasers, a newer division of KLINGER was introduced to schools this past year. We have had great success with our new LED laser optics kit as well as our laser Box, LED light boxes and a variety of new Multi-ray boxes. These items have quickly turned into one of our best sellers!

KLINGER is also one of the leading Robotics distributors in the US. We have partnered with Robolink, as well as others to expand the product offering and the curriculum in the K12 classroom.  KLINGER is now selling the best quality robotics.

In addition to products of our own manufacture, KLINGER distributes  products for experiments and equipment in physics and chemistry manufactured by LEYBOLD/LD. We are the exclusive LEYBOLD/ LD representative in the US.

Leybold LD didactic is known worldwide as the best made science teaching equipment ever manufactured. The X-ray set up by Ld is by far the most popular set up along with their ESR, NMR, and Franck Hertz experiments. Leybold is one of only a few manufacturers left that has their own glass blowing facility. All items are made to order strictly for that customer only. For the first time Ld has introduced "virtual experiments" to their. catalog. All items are still assembled by hand in Germany since 1865!

We have added many new items from United Scientific, AU Physics, Heliocentris, Cornelsen-Experimenta, Lab-Aids, Kemtech Scientific, 3b, Eisco, Robolink, Molymod, and more to give our loyal customers more of a variety when choosing their new lab equipment at the best prices.
