Brown and Sharpe Teams With Metris

Published: Tuesday, December 2, 2003 - 23:00

Brown and Sharpe USA, a member of Hexagon Metrology Group, has chosen Metris as its strategic partner for noncontact scanning solutions.

As a result of the newly forged alliance, Brown and Sharpe will promote Metris’ range of laser scanners and inspection and reverse engineering software in the United States. The companies have already completed the integration of Metris laser scanners in Brown and Sharpe’s inspection solutions.

"At Brown and Sharpe, we strongly believe that in the near future, laser scanning will play a critical role in everyone’s inspection process," says Bill Gruber, CEO of Brown and Sharpe USA. "With this strategic alliance, we’re in a perfect position to offer our customers fully integrated, CMM-based noncontact laser scanning solutions."

The alliance completes the existing partnership between Metris and Europe-based DEA, another member of the Hexagon Metrology Group.
