Newport Corp. (Irvine, CA) has completed the sale of its U.S.-based noncontact metrology business to Quality Vision International Inc. (QVI, Rochester, NY). QVI is the parent company of Optical Gaging Products Inc. (Rochester, NY), a designer and manufacturer of precision noncontact and multisensor coordinate measuring systems, and View Engineering Inc. (Simi Valley, CA), a manufacturer of vision-based, automated noncontact measurement systems.

QVI has acquired RAM Optical Instrumentation Inc., a company spun off by Newport as part of its plan to sell the majority of its Industrial Metrology Systems Div.
