Product development. Manufacturing. Quality testing. Individually for our customers. Tailored to each industry

Increasing expectations regarding the efficiency and effectiveness of the samples to be examined are growing at a rapid pace. In order to meet these requirements, the equipment and applications used are also becoming more precise, faster and more dynamic. Measurements “on the fly” with increasingly high acceleration values and consideration of the resulting dynamic effects require a deep understanding of the motion sequences and couplings between the individual components. A high degree of integration in the end devices of the samples under investigation and a deep understanding of the end applications are prerequisites here. In close dialogue with our customers, we jointly develop the best solution for the respective application. The close dialogue with the user often creates the breakthrough to innovative and groundbreaking products, which are only possible through the willingness to openly exchange ideas. Off-the-shelf catalogue products are the wrong answer here, because we have often found: There is no off-the-peg.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

produktentwicklung

All electronics and software developments are created in our own research and development department. Experienced, curious and highly motivated employees are always looking for new challenges – with the aim of developing the best products on the market.

MANUFACTURING

fertigung

In order to be able to react quickly and flexibly to all customer requirements, we have an extensive stock of raw materials: granite as a solid foundation, aluminium alloys for normally loaded components and trim parts, titanium for particularly demanding components and high-tech materials such as carbon fibre composite.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

qualitaetssicherung

Quality is an integral part of our work. Because only uncompromising quality in all phases of development, design and production ensures that our products perfectly withstand the conditions to which they are exposed at all times.

We develop and produce linear axis, positioning axis and complete mechatronic positioning systems for your application: no matter if microscope table or Gantry System for material analysis. Any precise positioning system is made of our core products added by decades of experience in system design and motion control technology.
To the products

If your application requires precision and high resolution, then the measurement system developed in-house by ITK are the perfect fit. Even in dirty or harsh environments the incremental or absolute  measurement systems by ITK are available as linear or rotatory solutions.
To the products

For position systems the main task is to achieve the intended position fast and precise, which requires enormous technical knowledge and experience. With almost 40 years’ experience in developing and producing high resolution controllers we are proud to say: intelligent controllers made by ITK position systems accurate and on point – even up to the nanometer.
To the products

ITK offers linear and stepper motors in different power classes. With intelligent motion controllers and our modified stepper motors extremely high resolutions are achievable. In combination with our internal motion controllers it is possible to reduce resonances to a minimum. In-house developed, patented linear motors are used in all our positioning systems, but are also available as stand alone products. Ideal for your individual application.

SYSTEMS FOR HIGH-PRECISION CONTROL & POSITIONING 

The constructive interaction of our core competences has a great
influence on the end product. Consequently, cooperation was defined as a strategic
collaboration was defined as a strategic task, and over the years a deep
understanding has been built up over the years. The result: through in-house development and production of the core components, we are able to supply highly accurate and efficient positioning systems at the highest technical level for industry and research.
not only modularly from a construction kit, but individually adapted.

Our product development – consisting of mechanical construction, analysis
and simulation, electronic and software development – is the initiator and
and the first point of contact for new developments brought to us by customers.
to us.

Our high level of vertical integration enables us to carry out the mechanical machining of the individual components, the electronic production, the final assembly of the positioning systems and the testing in-house.
positioning systems and testing are all carried out in-house.
