Hohoho-Oh, with us it’s Christmas already before the 24th of December Today was the most beautiful day for us within the whole donation campaign "Your customer feedback makes children's wishes come true".

Today it was like being at the North Pole in the Secret Santa workshop. In the last few days we were able to buy many gifts from our year-round fundraising campaign "Your customer feedback makes children's wishes come true". For each received customer feedback, we paid 10.00 Euros into the donation pot – throughout the whole year. Thanks to the feedback from our customers, the additional donations from our employees and an additional contribution from the management, such a nice total amount has been collected. Thus, today we wrapped presents for all the children from the "Outlaw" family aid in Meißen. Tomorrow we are going to Meißen to give the Christmas presents to the children, which we were able to realize thanks to many contributors. There’s [...]

Every single year, on long Winter evenings at home, we try very different methods in order to just achieve one modest goal: cracking the nuts. This can quickly turn into a rather tricky challenge when one wants to reach the inside without shattering the tasty kernel. What does this need? - Patience, craftsmanship and most importantly the necessary sensitivity. Here at IMA Dresden, cracking the so-called hardest nuts i.e. difficult problems is part of our daily routine, even if we sometimes have to grit our teeth first. Irrespective of whether this concerns standard inspections and tests or special solutions, simple material samples or inspections or tests on complex components - we solve all our tasks with great passion.
Not just during [...]

Initially connecting the many individual, delicate threads results in a selfcontained network which is more stable than it actually seems at first glance.

Horror parties, hollowed out pumpkins, threatening dark characters: What has always been a big spectacle in America for many years, has now also become a fixed date in Germany for vampires, witches and ghosts. The Celts believed that All Hallows opened up the border between the earthly world and the realm of the dead. Today, on the day we now call Halloween, many real personalities are transformed into all manner of imaginable fantasy figures, the virtual world in their heads takes on an eerily beautiful form. IMA Dresden can also create virtual worlds and thereby supports its customers, especially in the design process. We inspect and test tomorrow‘s concepts and ideas. This process does not even require a real test object. Even when there [...]
