IMS was founded in 1980 in Heiligenhaus, Germany, near Düsseldorf. The company established a U.S. presence in 2000 to take advantage of market opportunities throughout the United States and Canada.

IMS is a leading manufacturer of non-contact x-ray, isotope, and optical measuring systems that gauge the length, width, thickness, and other dimensions of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. IMS also offers a comprehensive lineup of Strip Guiding Systems (SGSs) to complement their measuring systems and improve Mill and Service Center productivity.

The company operates a sales, service, and production facility at its North American headquarters in Mars, PA, near Pittsburgh. IMS also offers gauge training and repair courses at that location.

The company’s additional Service Center near Mobile, AL provides services to our clients based in the Southeast of the US.

We celebrated 40 years of IMS in June 2020
