LEUVEN, BELGIUM-LK UK has selected Metris as a strategic partner for noncontact scanning solutions. LK will promote Metris' range of laser scanners, including the new Metris XC50 Cross Scanner and reverse engineering software.

LK and Metris have invested in each other's technology to allow their respective sales staff to fully demonstrate the capabilities of the new scanning solutions. As a result, Metris' headquarters recently completed the installation of an LK coordinate measuring machine (CMM) in its metrology room. The availability of the LK CMM will help integrate Metris' technology in LK inspection solutions.
