IBL was founded in 1987 and has been working in the soldering sector of electronics since then. IBL recognised the potential of vapour phase technology for assembly and soldering technology at an early stage. They began to develop their own new systems technology for vapour phase soldering during the introduction of SMD- techniques in the manufacture of assemblies. This early entry enabled IBL to develop an enormous amount of know-how and convincing innovative strengths.

That has been documented by more than 30 national and international patents and recognised by a special award from the Bavarian State Government. IBL has pioneered vapour phase systems technology and is the world leader in Vapour Phase Soldering Machine Technology, as a consequence of which, users have a competent partner at their side for future new developments.
