Milestones in the product development of imos


imos AG is founded in 1993 by Professor Dr.-Ing. Frank Prekwinkel as a spin-off of his scientific activities at the TU-Braunschweig. The aim is to establish the world's first object-oriented CAD/CAM technology in the furniture industry.

imos NET

With imos NET, the company is responding to the trend towards Internet commerce. The web-based presentation and ordering system allows future-oriented applications in eBusiness and thus expands the functional scope of imos technology in the direction of trade and sales.


With Winfried Dell joining the management board, the internationalization and worldwide marketing of imos technologies is accelerated. The company thus gains deep insights into the global market activities of the furniture industry.

Foundation of iFurn

The cloud service iFurn acts as a link between the supplier industry and design engineers. iFurn prepares the data of complete product ranges in such a way that they completely map the information requirements of the entire workflow - from sales to design to manufacturing.

iX as a product series

With a view to networking processes, imos markets the technology for sales and the manufacture of furniture under the name iX. System architecture and GUI (Graphical User Interface) have been completely revised.

iX Interio

iX Interio is the world's first ecosystem for the furniture industry. The imos modules are configured individually for each company size and the strategic orientation of the company.
