About Us

We have been innovating, engineering, and manufacturing proven, quality products for more than 70 years.​ ​ ​ ​

Made in Germany

We develop and produce our products exclusively at our headquarters in Balingen, Germany at the foot of the Swabian Alps. We source 90% of our high-quality materials from local suppliers.

The IDEAL family

As a successful, medium-sized family business, we are committed to our employees. We believe in our product and work together to bring our customers quality-made machines that are built not only with our family in mind but yours as well.​

The quality is in the detail

The best products require.
the best materials.

We only use tried and tested raw materials. These range from high-quality steel, all the way down to the tiniest screws. You can not only see but also experience the quality of our intelligent technology. Our products are straightforward and easy to use, leaving you more time to focus on your work, family, and fun.​

Generous with ideas,
protective of resources.

Protecting the environment has been one of our core values since our company was founded in 1951. It is a concept we consistently improve upon. We use only high-grade materials and purchased parts from sustainable production operations in all of our products. We also offer a powder coating center with a water-based washing system, lead-free soldering in our PCB manufacturing operations, clearly labeled plastic parts for environmentally friendly recycling, as well as optimized production processes that minimize waste and scrap.​

We give you our very best. All the time. Guaranteed.


We work with attention to detail, and we always keep the bigger picture in view – with the help of strict quality, environmental, and energy management systems. We are certified by numerous recognized standards: DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, DIN EN ISO 14001:2015, and DIN EN ISO 50001:2011. We believe the very best must be put to the test because there is always potential room for a little improvement.

Made in Germany.
