About Lignomat USA Ltd.

In 1979 we started selling moisture meters and kiln control equipment in the US. At first, all equipment was manufactured by Lignomat GmbH in Germany. It soon became very obvious, that the US market required different equipment than the European market. Lignomat USA began developing moisture meters and kiln controllers made specifically for the US market. Today, we offer pin moisture meters and pinless moisture meters, moisture meters for concrete, lumber dry kiln controls and a variety of wireless monitoring devices for moisture and humidity conditions.

The first pocket-size, low-cost moisture meter, the mini-Ligno was developed by German engineers in 1979. The mini-Ligno is still an all-time favorite with over 200 000 units sold. The mini-Lignos still use the same housing with the green cap. The electronic circuitry inside has been up-dated several times. The last up-date was completed just recently to increase accuracy when measuring the many different wood species and materials being used today. More calibration settings were added for the mini-Ligno DX/C to include Bamboo and some of the new engineered panels as well as a wider variety of domestic and tropical hardwoods. To increase versatility, sheetrock calibrations are included.
