ifm buys CMS automation technology
15.03.2023 - On February 28, 2023, ifm took over CMS Automation Technology GmbH in Linz, Austria.
With a total of 9 employees, CMS offers automated data analysis for early damage detection and predictive maintenance. With the help of the data, diagnoses and forecasts are derived in order to be able to carry out condition-related, targeted maintenance and servicing measures. From the sensor to the cloud, this creates a powerful offer for customers from a wide variety of industries. This includes automated vibration analyzes and diagnostics as well as complete process evaluations. The two companies, ifm diagnostic and CMS, already have many years of experience in working together.
The first pilot projects for cloud-based machine diagnostics are already underway. With the integration of CMS, ifm is taking another, strategically important step into the future and is thus achieving new business areas and more stable competitiveness.
The new company, which will operate under the name ifm diagnostic services gmbh in future, will strengthen the "process" division at ifm. Andreas Hornstein and Michael Danitschek will be operationally responsible for the area together with the previous shareholder Christoph Müllner. In the "process" division, the central managing directors Lothar Zimmer and Hans Peter Müller are responsible for the new subsidiary.
