New head of mechatronics

Dr.-Ing. Ludwig Herzog has been leading the mechatronics team at IMMS since 1 December 2022

Dr.-Ing. Ludwig Herzog became head of the mechatronics department at IMMS on 1 December. He had previously led development at PREMETEC Automation GmbH. The internationally active company for automation and precision measurement technology from Suhl, Germany, had collaborated with IMMS in the past on nano-positioning and nano-measuring machines. Ludwig Herzog had already completed his studies in automotive engineering in Ilmenau, including a doctorate, and now returned to further advance the research and development for magnetic 6D direct drives with nanometre precision and application-specific mechatronic systems for research partners and industrial customers together with the interdisciplinary team.

Welcome to IMMS. We wish lots of fun and much success!

Service for R&D

Development of mechatronic systems

We develop actuator systems and open- and closed-loop controls as embedded solutions according to customer specifications with highest demands on precision, dynamics, available space, performance and efficiency.

Service for R&D

Finite Element Modeling

We support you in the concept and development phase of new products with calculations and simulations to shorten development times and improve product parameters such as weight & material savings or minimisation of natural vibrations.

Research field

Magnetic 6D direct drives with nm precision

To enable the manufacturing of macroscopic high-tech products with microscopic precision, we are researching scientific principles and technical solutions for nanopositioning systems for large motion ranges.

Service for R&D

MEMS – simulation, design and test

As a design house for the open technology platform XMB-10 from X-FAB, we develop acceleration sensors according to your specification in a semi-automated design process.

High-precision drive systems with spatial (6D) positioning accuracies in the single-digit nm range.

Lead application

nm measurement and structuring of objects

To be able to manufacture the ever-increasing complexity of integrated systems on ever-smaller semiconductor surfaces, for example, we are researching ever more precise drives for the nanometre measurement and structuring of objects.
