Metris Rebrands to Nikon Metrology

LEUVEN -- The corporate name of Metris is changed into Nikon Metrology NV. Under the Nikon brand, Nikon and Metris will synergize their respective strengths with regards to technology, marketing and services, thereby delivering innovative metrology products with a broad application reach to its worldwide customer base.

Convincing business logic and secured growth path

Nikon Metrology uniquely blends Metris’ innovation leadership in micro metrology with a globally recognized brand. The new organization yields the most complete metrology offering, as state-of-the-art Nikon 2.5-D vision measuring systems complement optical and mechanical Metris 3-D metrology solutions. Nikon’s strong company position guarantees future-proof investments and a secured growth path for continued product development and innovation. Nikon Metrology has a strong, well-balanced worldwide marketing, sales and services organization in place.

“We are delighted to be able to trade under the flag of the powerful Nikon brand, facilitating and accelerating the global rollout of our optical metrology revolution,” states Bart Van Coppenolle, founder of Metris and today CEO of Nikon Metrology. “We look forward to further invest in future product development and customer support, leveraging the strength of a strong international technology group. Together, we will strengthen our leadership position as an optical metrology innovator, and firmly extend trade with our global customers and business partners.”

Offering complementary product portfolios

Always at the forefront of contactless 3-D inspection, Metris introduced groundbreaking innovations across the entire micro-metrology spectrum: digital 3-D laser scanners, X-ray metrology with industrial computer tomography (CT) in addition to laser radar and iGPS for large-scale metrology applications.

Nikon Instruments, a market leader in optical instrumentation, spans the accuracy range from several microns to submicron level. Automated NEXIV VMR vision inspection systems offer smart, premium optics for highly accurate 2.5-D surface analysis. Measuring microscopes, optical comparators and autocollimators are among other powerful Nikon dimensional metrology and industrial inspection solutions.
