A new distribution agreement between Nikon Metrology Europe and Wenzel sees two of the biggest global players in metrology create a new partnership. The agreement provides customers with a combination of Wenzel CMMs and Nikon Metrology’s laser-scanning solutions.
As a result of the arrangement, Wenzel becomes an official Nikon Metrology partner for the sales and distribution of Nikon Metrology laser-scanning products in the European market.
Carsten Georgi, laser radar and laser scanning sales director at Nikon Metrology, says: “The partnership between Nikon Metrology Europe and Wenzel brings two innovative companies together to meet the increasing market demands of our mutual customers.”
Dr Heike Wenzel, CEO of the Wenzel Group, adds: “By using Nikon sensors on a Wenzel CMM, Wenzel provides its customers with an additional benefit. Due to the extended portfolio of optical sensors, the right sensor for each customer can be offered in terms of measuring time, accuracy and level of detail. Furthermore, existing CMMs can be upgraded by Wenzel with the new optical sensors. All this is rounded off by the use of our measuring software WM Quartis, in which the complete Nikon Metrology sensor portfolio is integrated.”
With Industry 4.0 practices integrating all areas of manufacturing to improve the efficiency of production processes, laser scanning is a key component in its implementation. In the production environment, laser scanning helps to obtain a rapid insight into deviations, a significant benefit of high-speed digital data capture. With the support of Wenzel’s CMMs, this new partnership is set to deliver precise and innovative solutions, ready for Industry 4.0.
