From the concept
to the product

IMK engineering GmbH was founded in 1990 by 3 former senior employees of the development department of SDAG Wismut. The aim at the time of foundation was to be available to industry as a partner for new product developments.

Complex service packages


Innovative concept studies - the basis of your products of tomorrow.


Professional development work - essential for successful products.


Your protection against unpleasant surprises - sound technical calculations and analysis.


Clear and concise - standard-compliant, customer-specific documentation.


From theory to practice - functional prototypes are created accompanied by our engineers.

As individual as your requirements
... selected service modules ...
... complex service packages ...
... or the overall process from concept to product ...

As special as our customers - products made to measure. Projects with a one-off character such as welding or machining fixtures, test benches, prototypes and customer-specific special solutions.


These values distinguish us!

Would you like to become part of our team?

We are IMK engineering GmbH

We work on complex machine construction projects with fun and passion. We are proud of our high level of expertise in a very broad range of tasks, our modern and comfortable working environment and, above all, our collegial teamwork. With a lot of enthusiasm for technology, creativity, innovation and flexibility, we serve a broad customer portfolio with dedicated and well-trained employees. Our versatility is our potential. In no other company do you have the opportunity to work simultaneously on machining equipment, complex construction machinery, complete handling systems and roller coaster vehicles.

Wenn Du genauso begeistert bist wie wir, dann bewirb Dich jetzt! Egal ob Praktikanten, Berufseinsteiger oder Berufserfahrene. Gerne betreuen wir auch Abschlussarbeiten für Bachelor, Master oder Techniker.

Innovation | Creativity | Flexibility

We work on the latest technologies and create suitable solutions for our customers. We are creative in the implementation and adapt to the task.

Appreciation | Recognition | Equal Treatment

We promote our employees according to their strengths. Everyone has the opportunity to develop within the company according to these.

Flat hierarchies | short decision-making paths

We do not have a head of department or team leader. We work equally placed in small project teams.


Wir forschen mit!

Wir sind ab sofort Partner im europäischen Verbundprojekt Hy.CoMM und forschen gemeinsam an Technologien und Lösungen für die Ausstattung eines Bergbaufahrzeugs mit Wasserstoffantrieb.

Wheel loader

Compact diesel-hydraulically driven loader for use at low roadway heights. The operator's platform integrated in the load section of the machine provides the operator with optimum visibility during work. The field of application ranges from mining, tunneling and subway construction to driving caverns and supply shafts in dam construction.

Micro Mobile Loader

Complete development of a particularly compact and powerful travel loader for heavy-duty use in hard rock.

The operator's platform integrated in the load section of the machine provides the operator with optimum visibility during work. The field of application ranges from mining, tunneling, and subway railroad construction to the excavation of caverns and supply shafts in dam construction. The steering of the crawler loader, the lifting and tipping function of the bucket is realized by means of electro-hydraulic joy sticks.

Dump truck

Mechanical design and strength verification of the welded assemblies according to the customer's specifications. Modular structure, which allows the derivation of other series with little adaptation effort. Removable bumper, which facilitates the installation motor and maintenance of the drive components.

Basic vehicle for concrete spraying machine

  • Complete design of the mechanics, electrics, hydraulics and strength verification of the welding assemblies of a mobile concrete spraying mesh
  • Integration of the latest exhaust technology for diesel engines.
  • FOPS / ROPS Verification of the operator station
  • Production of the chassis in the in-house workshop.

Blast hole drill rig

Extra low-profile double-arm blast hole drill rig for underground use in a platinum mine in South Africa. Both a diesel-hydraulic and an electro-hydraulic drive are installed in the vehicle. The drill rig is operated by remote control.

Robbery vehicle

Electro-hydraulically driven recovery vehicle for roadway protection. A powerful hydraulic hammer is mounted at the end of the swiveling telescopic boom. The hammer is used to remove loose boulders from the ridge. During the robbing process, the articulated machine is stabilized by means of a hydraulic support.


Electro-hydraulically driven mining machine for driving roadways and supply shafts in hard rock. The machine can be operated from the operator's platform as well as by remote control.

Forestry tractor

Lightweight thinning forwarder, hydrostatically driven with 2-speed powershift transmission.

Transport vehicle with sliding blade

Extremely low, diesel-hydraulically driven transport vehicle with sliding blade. Concept study of a remote-controlled and extremely maneuverable crawler vehicle for transporting spare parts in particularly low areas of the mine.

Transport vehicle with clamping tool

Extremely flat, battery-powered transport vehicle with clamping tool. Instead of the classic diesel-hydraulic drive, a Li-Ion battery and electric motor were provided. Concept study of a remote-controlled and extremely maneuverable crawler vehicle for transporting support elements in underground operations.

Mining and extraction technology

Our breadth of design and development services and the expertise we have accumulated over the years enable us to develop novel mining and extraction technologies for mining and processing operations.
