An interdisciplinary research team with about 40 employees is working at BIMAQ. The institute collaborates e.g. with the MAPEX Center for Materials and Processes, and is also significantly involved in “Collaborative Research Centers” located in Bremen (Sonderforschungsbereiche) of the German Research Foundation (DFG). Furthermore, BIMAQ cooperates regionally, nationally and globally with research institutions and companies.

BIMAQ is locally divided in the main building and a technical center (Technikum):

  • The BIMAQ main building offers laboratories for the research on optical, thermographic and photothermic measuring systems, furthermore various coordinate measuring devices.
  • The BIMAQ technical center offers the unique “Laboratory for Large Gears” - highly equipped with a large volume coordinate measuring machine (CMM) - as well as a test center with various gearbox test rigs, focusing on the research in metrology for wind power plants.
