Berlin 06 September 2019 - imc Test & Measurement GmbH has finalized its investment in the Munich-based sensor and telemetry manufacturer CAEMAX Technologie GmbH and has acquired 100% of the shares. Managing directors remain Dr. Peter Ballerscheff and Henning Pöschl.
With the purchase of the Munich-based sensor and telemetry manufacturer CAEMAX Technologie GmbH, the Berlin-based measurement technology manufacturer imc Test & Measurement GmbH has expanded its shares to 100%. Following imc's acquisition of a 25.1% stake in CAEMAX in 2015, the successful sales and development partnership will now further continue.
The Munich location will remain the headquarters of CAEMAX Technologie GmbH. It is to be expanded further as a competence center for vehicle dynamics solutions and tailor-made telemetric measurement technology applications.
By integrating the CAEMAX sensor technology into imc measurement systems, new synergies have already been created which have enabled both companies to grow faster. Today, the sensors and telemetry applications of CAEMAX generate high profits. In cooperation with CAEMAX, imc continues to advance the sales and development of complete measurement solutions for vehicle and machine testing. As a result, new and successful products are already being developed.
This includes the CRFX/WFT-2 module for the imc CRONOSflex modular DAQ system. Different wheel sensors can be connected directly, as with conventional sensors, to the imc system - the previously required electronic unit is no longer required. Thus, imc Test & Measurement GmbH is the only measurement system manufacturer to offer a complete integration of a wheel force transducer into its measurement systems, which seamlessly synchronize and process these data.
Head of Development, Ralf Winkelmann, characterizes this new development as follows:
“Together with CAEMAX we are redefining the integration of intelligent sensors. The WFT module has earned the title ‘integrated’ above all through an interaction of hardware, firmware and software that is invisible to the user. For the first time ‘Plug & Measure’ can be carried out in the real sense of the expression. For our customers, this is a clear advantage when it comes to productive measurement”.
The founding of CAEMAX Technologie GmbH in May 2009 by Henning Pöschl, Dr.-Ing. Peter Ballerscheff and three other partners had the goal of offering measurement systems all from a single source. The focus has been on innovative 6-component wheel force transducers, steering effort sensors and modular telemetry systems whose quality and technology occupy a leading position worldwide.
The emphasis is on providing customers with the best possible comprehensive solution for specific measuring tasks with a high degree of user-friendliness and short set-up times.
With tailor-made engineering services, strain gauge application, calibration and training, CAEMAX also imparts the know-how for its products. As part of the imc group, CAEMAX customers benefit from fully integrated measurement solutions and a close-meshed sales and service network in Germany and worldwide.
