The strong increase in incoming orders (24 %) as well as the great interest in our announced product innovations around artificial intelligence as an app for industrial cameras, novelties for 3D applications, and robot vision continue to cause optimism. Therefore, and to prepare further growth, IDS Imaging Development Systems is investing in a new “Innovation and Tech Center”. The official ground-breaking ceremony for the new building will take place in the second quarter of 2019. This building will have an area of 4500 square meters and two hundred additional office work stations.

Furthermore, IDS is planning to invest in a system for automatic storage and order picking. There will also be a strong increase in the number of personnel: Around sixty additional jobs will be created in 2019.

“In addition to classic development, we would like to shift focus more towards new innovative technology topics,” explains managing director Jürgen Hartmann.

The strong increase in incoming orders (24 %) as well as the great interest in our announced product innovations around artificial intelligence as an app for industrial cameras, novelties for 3D applications, and robot vision continue to cause optimism.

The sales growth of IDS remained above average at around twenty percent even in 2018. Sales rose particularly strongly with approximately fifty percent in Asia, but IDS also recorded growth of about twenty percent in the US and Europe. “The investments in new branches are paying off,” explains Jürgen Hartmann. “We now generate more than fifty percent of our sales abroad.” IDS cameras with USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 interfaces are among the bestsellers.
