The fischer Group of Companies has launched its new undercut anchor FSU for fastenings in concrete that require a particularly high load and safety level. In addition to its performance characteristics, the latest addition to fischer’s range of products offers added advantages through secure and convenient installation thanks to self-undercutting. By launching the FSU, fischer is taking another major step in the digitalisation of fastenings, as the anchor is fischer’s first product to feature an integrated DMC (Data Matrix Code) to identify and read product data.
Spring models in combination with the Finite Element Method (FEM) open up versatile methods for designing anchorages in concrete. The approach allows technical, functional and architectural fastening requirements to be fulfilled while offering maximum freedom during planning. The FEM module in the C-FIX software of the fischer FiXperience Online suite now makes it easier and quicker to use spring models and is available free of charge.
A six-storey building and 500 apartments are being built as part of a comprehensive building complex on the river Mersey in Liverpool, in England’s North West.

The fischer Group of Companies has been declared a German Brand Icon by the Plus X Award. “This prestigious award honours the continuous cultivation of fischer’s brand values, which have gained the recognition of end consumers in Germany over decades”, the judges stated in their decision.
A new route under water connects people: On 30 June, the Swinetunnel was opened to traffic.

More than 50,000 fischer heavy-duty fixings were installed in the tunnel.
