25 years IMA Dresden – and it works IMA Dresden is now 25 years young. Back then, in May 1993, leading engineers took their future into their own hands and formed IMA Materialforschung und Anwendungstechnik GmbH, IMA Dresden for short, via a management buyout. However, the young IMA can draw on significantly greater life experience than that. The roots of IMA Dresden reach right back to 1955, when aircraft construction began in Dresden. The future is full of challenges, and developments are moving Forward rapidly. “It is not a question of predicting the future, but of being prepared for it.” What was once said by the Greek philosopher Pericles is more valid than ever before in our global, highly mechanised world. Even though many products [...]

For deformation tests on acetabular shells according to ISO 7206-12 or anchoring tests of glenoid components in accordance with ASTM F2028, we use an optical measuring system instead of standard displacement transducers, which detects deformation states and strains contactlessly with maximum accuracy. This photogrammetry method measures samples and components independently of material according to the principle of digital image correlation. With an accuracy of ± 4 μm, path changes can be more flexibly and accurately recorded and visualized. We also recommend this measurement method for many other Tests.
