LDV Laser- und Lichtsysteme GmbH took over the business from LDV-Systeme GmbH effectiv Mai 2012. LDV-Systeme was founded in 1999 and is a specialist in the manufacturing of non-contact measurement systems for length and speed measurement.
The main applications for the company’s products can be found in the steel and aluminium industries. Existing systems are produced and further developed in the company’s own development and manufacturing division. Through a global distribution network, years of experience and qualified staff, LDV has achieved a leading position in the global market.

With the acquisition of VH Lichttechnische Spezialgeräte GmbH’s products and associated patents, LDV strategically expanded its product portfolio again in August 2008.

Through the effective use of the light as a working medium, the patented lighting systems enable a faster and clearer identification of surface defects. As a separate division in LDV Laser- und Lichtsysteme GmbH, the products for visual surface examination are incorporated under the name iLux-Lichtsysteme (iLux light systems).
