Making the cross over
IMS develops and builds highly accurate machines for assembling micro-optics used in notebooks and mobile phones, for more than a decade. Since then, over 300 million devices are equipped with micro-optics which are manufactured on IMS machines. This valuable know-how will now become available for the automotive industry. IMS combines the know-how and experience in micro-optics with over 30 years of experience in designing and building high tech assembly machines for sensors, valves, and small electrical components. All of these products fall within the micro scale.
Strengthening the technology base for micro-optics
“Bringing these two fields together opens new and exciting possibilities for IMS and our customers,” says Ton Pothoven, CEO of IMS. “The solid basis which IMS has in the automotive industry will be strengthened further by two parallel development projects which we recently started with Fraunhofer Project Center. Working with Fraunhofer gives us the extra dimension in our knowledge base”.
