Carl Zeiss case study

COMPANY PROFILE

Today, Carl Zeiss Industrielle Messtechnik GmbH (Carl Zeiss IMT) – a company of the Carl Zeiss Group – has three production sites and more than 100 sales and service centres worldwide. Carl Zeiss IMT is a technology leader for bridge-type and horizontal arm measuring machines as well as instruments for measuring form, geometry and surface.
