Control 2019 in Stuttgart proved to be the venue for British CMM manufacturer LK Metrology to celebrate its first year of trading as a stand-alone company once more.
LK was purchased at the end of March 2018 from Nikon Metrology by Angelo Muscarella, owner of Italian firm ASF Metrology. The last time LK was independently owned was prior to its takeover by former holding group Metris at the beginning of 2006. In 2018, the company celebrated its 55th anniversary in the metrology industry.
“We are delighted to complete our first year so successfully, during which we made a profit despite the expense necessarily incurred in transferring ownership of the company, which included opening a new office in Shanghai,” says Muscarella. “We’ve already launched a packaged version of our Altera CMM with Renishaw Revo-2 probe, which is called the SCANtek 5. In addition, at the Control exhibition we previewed another newly developed product, the AlteraC 10.7.5, which is the first of three sizes planned.”
