Milestones on the road to success


Johann Reisinger established the company Merlin Technology which traded in wood processing machinery and designed complete solutions for surface engineering.


Non-destructive wood moisture measuring devices were added to the product line – today they enjoy an international reputation and are exported to 70 countries.


merlin® delivered the first humidification system and quickly won renowned international companies as satisfied customers.


merlin® was converted to a limited liability company with the name Merlin Technology GmbH.


merlin® built and patented the first high-pressure humidification system in which the atomization units draw in air from above. merlin® systems are now used by numerous customers in the wood, leather, textile, paper, automotive, and electronics industries worldwide.


merlin® launched COOLER, which harnesses the adiabatic cooling effect of humidification to comfortably cool the ambient air with finely atomized water.


COOLER provided a refreshingly cool atmosphere in the “German House” at the Olympic Games in Athens – to the delight of the athletes, the press, and VIPs alike.


merlin® installed COOLER systems on four luxury cruise liners. The merlin® Team had by then grown to 21 employees.

merlin® built a new innovative company building, providing the basis for further growth.


EVOLUTION, the new series of robustly designed, non-destructive, wood moisture measuring devices, was launched. There are three models with different scanning depths. Perfect for raw timber, semi-finished products, parquet, furniture, and windows.


merlin® was certified according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22000, ÖNORM H 6020-1:2007 and ISO 13485:2012 – an objective proof of the products’ and the company’s quality.
