Parts for Fischer Industries X-Ray Film Processors

Fischer Industries has been out of business for over 1 year now. There are some folks that think that means parts for Fischer Industries x-ray film processors are no longer available. Not true! Since January of 2008, FI Sales has been providing tech support (at no charge), downloadable technical data at (at no charge), and parts for Fischer Industries x-ray film processors. And we do not have a limited supply of parts. We continue to restock Fischer parts to meet dealer and practice demand and plan to do so for as many years as the market requires parts. What other processor company offers tech support and parts for 25+ year old processor models? We have a Fischer Parts Reference Price List available for download along with lots of other technical information at

So if you have an old Fischer Industries x-ray film processor that needs parts, just tell your dealer to get the parts they need from FI Sales, LLC. We are available toll free at 1-888-972-9777 or online at

FI Sales is pleased to inform you that PROTEC GmbH & Co. KG – medical systems - in Oberstenfeld, Germany has acquired the majority shareholding of PROVOTEC GmbH in Espelkamp, Germany.

By taking this step, PROTEC will continue to strengthen their position in the world-wide market for medical imaging systems. In the future PROTEC will be able to offer complete x-ray systems for the digital direct radiography sector including x-ray generators, x-ray tubes, bucky tables, detectors and image acquisition software. Of course, PROTEC will also include complete analog systems in the product range.

PROVOTEC GmbH in Espelkamp (North Rhine-Westphalia - Germany) was founded in 1998. After the former US manufacturer Picker stopped its European business activities, a group of experienced employees acquired the product rights. This ensured the supply of spare parts for older Picker x-ray systems and gave them the opportunity to develop and sell their own high-quality x-ray systems. You can find more information on PROVOTEC under:

Surviving This Economy as a Small Business

How does any small business survive in this economy today? Sometimes I wonder, but at FI Sales we are surviving and some would say even flourishing. As a debt-free company, we don't have to worry about loan payback or credit card balances. We continue to invest our profits into the business, but we have lived within our means and not accrued debt. We are broadening our product offering, making sure our support services are up to date and of value, and lowering our prices. That's right, we're lowering our prices.

We just posted a new Protec Parts Price List dated 3/4/09. Our offering has expanded since we first started offering parts for Protec processors. More importantly, we have lowered prices on 46 items while raising prices on only 3 items. This is a small part of our business as Protec processors are known for their incredible reliability, but as long as we are in a position to pass along savings where we can to our dealers and customers, we will. We also plan for a 2009 with no price increase on the price of the Protec ECOMAX and OPTIMAX x-ray film processors. The ECOMAX remains the best processor bargain on the market today.

So enjoy some lower prices, and remember that the Protec parts fit not only Protec brand processors, but also the Summit QCP, Alphatek AX-200, JPI JP-33, and Kodak MXP 104.
