IMS Messsysteme – World Market Leader in Measuring Systems

Precision out of passion, quality out of conviction and innovation out of tradition

X-ray measuring systems, isotope measuring systems and optical measuring systems from the world's leading manufacturer IMS have been a guarantee for highest product quality in the production and processing of steel, aluminium and non-ferrous metals since 1980.

Our non-contact detection systems are used in the steel, metal and aluminium industries wherever meticulous material testing is required to guarantee the highest standards of quality – worldwide under the toughest operating conditions.

Both in hot production, such as continuous casting plants, hot rolling mills and tube mills, where shimmering surfaces, heat, dirt and moisture are common, as well as in cold rolling mills and service centres, measuring systems from IMS measure and detect reliably and with highest precision.

Exactly reproducible measurements and evaluations in real time optimise your production lines and increase product quality while simultaneously reducing production costs and reject rates


“Knowledge is freedom, knowledge generates progress.”


We at IMS see ourselves as a self-learning organisation whose corporate concept is geared towards maintaining a high level of know-how at all times as the basis for our highly developed measuring systems: non-contact detection systems which, thanks to their innovative and customer-specific developments, are often not only ahead of the times, but also of our competitors.

We can only achieve and guarantee this market lead over the long term if we work together closely with our customers as partners as the concrete and very individual problems of our customers are our challenges for constant new developments of advanced technology that withstands the harshest conditions thanks to precise yet robust mechanics. Strong partners from research and engineering round off our competence team. The result: precision systems of the highest order for optimally monitored processes in hot rolling mills, cold rolling mills and service centres.

IMS measuring systems are developed, assembled, configured and tested at our headquarters in Heiligenhaus before guaranteeing our customers all over the world the highest standards of quality for systems Made in Germany.
