About us

The Gesellschaft für Bild- und Signalverarbeitung (GBS) mbH was founded in 1997 as a subsidiary of the Zentrum für Bild- und Signalverarbeitung (ZBS) e.V. GBS mbH develops, manufactures and distributes systems and software for industrial image processing for quality assurance and automation tasks. The GBS processes all aspects of a image processing solution as a unit, from the image acquisition to the feedback of the measurement results to the production process.

Parallel to these general solutions, software and hardware components for micro- and nanometers have been developed since 15 years.

With the appointment of Mr. Torsten Machleidt (Thuringian Research Prize 2002 on Nanomess Technology) as Managing Director of GBS mbH in March 2008, the company is leading an expert in the field of image processing and nanomessing and positioning technology.

At the same time, the change in management led to a stronger focus by GBS mbH on the development of innovative products for 3D surface measurement.

A product line of GBS mbH is the 3-D surface measurement technology for micro- and nanostructures based on white light interferometry under the name "smartWLI".
