The Dutch have always been known for attention to detail – it’s in our blood. It was true back in the 17th century and it’s true today. As an authority in the field of precision technology, IBS Precision Engineering is constantly making new advances in the field. Doing so puts us firmly in the tradition of the great Dutch scientists, artists, and philosophers. It is in their spirit that we “push the envelope” of precision engineering by setting new standards. All this means that we can provide added value for clients who aren’t interested in merely following familiar, well-trodden paths. We are innovative in the same way as Christian Huygens was with his pendulum clock.
How do you produce unique results in the area of measurement – achievements that excel in precision, efficiency and usefulness and help make products better? Creativity is one of the basic requirements for excellence in the field of advanced precision technology. After all, your problem is unique and calls for a unique solution. At IBS Precision Engineering, we don’t just focus on details but also on the overall picture. The approach of one of the great Dutch painters is an inspiration to us. Our ability to solve problems expresses itself in precision engineering that tackles problems from a different angle – or from a new perspective. Perhaps it comes from both, but it’s surprising in the same way as Rembrandt’s wonderful use of light and dark.
Looking at a problem from a different perspective is only possible if you are prepared to think differently. At IBS Precision Engineering, we like to be a bit contrary in our thinking. That’s because we believe an unconventional approach can generate valuable ideas and useful alternatives that can improve your precision technology. But we didn’t need to go abroad to get acquainted with this free way of thinking. We got it from a philosopher who challenged the world to examine every idea critically and with a healthy dose of common sense. That’s a challenge that we’re happy to take up on a daily basis. It’s self-willed but it’s done with a sense of humour just like in Erasmus’ Praise of Folly.
Precision engineering demands the expertise of an authority, particularly when you want to carry out measurements for which there are as yet no solutions. What you then need to do is find technology that can guarantee maximum precision. IBS Precision Engineering offers more and better solutions – right down to the level of micrometres and nanometres. We don’t just focus on existing technology but also on technology that’s still being developed. By linking the two, we can create solutions that amount to more than the sum of their parts and that go further than usual. They’re tried and tested and have been constructed by specialists, including the software and support. Take a look at precision technology through the eyes of IBS Precision Engineering – it will greatly increase the options available to you. You’ll be just as surprised as Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, whose microscopes opened up a whole new world.
The Dutch are famous as entrepreneurs. A long time ago, Amsterdam was the home port of the Dutch East India Company; nowadays the Netherlands is the “main port to Europe”. Entrepreneurs from both the Old and New Worlds find their way to IBS Precision Engineering – and vice versa – because IBS can provide solutions for every problem in precision engineering. Our expertise is not limited by any boundaries or borders, and it’s against that international background that we match supply and demand. We can provide tailor-made precision engineering solutions, but we also have a standard line of measurement products – from leading brands like Lion Precision and New Way – that we sell under licence. The future is implicit in the past. With IBS, your precision engineering has a great future.
