LDV Laser- und Lichtsysteme GmbH

The company

LDV Laser- und Lichtsysteme GmbH is a family-run company based in Wickede/Ruhr.  Since 1999 we are specialists in the manufacture of non-contact measuring systems for length and velocity measurement.  The existing systems are produced and further developed in our own development and production department.

The patented lighting systems enable faster and clearer detection of surface defects through the effective use of light as a working medium.  The products for visual surface inspection are integrated into LDV Laser- und Lichtsysteme GmbH as a separate business unit under the name iLux-Lichtsysteme GmbH.
