Jenoptik and ACCRETECH bring “Opticline” optical metrology to the Japanese market
With their strategic partnership, Jenoptik and Accretech will combine economic and technological strengths to create added value for the entire Japanese industry from February 1, 2022. Jenoptik thus gains another strong distribution partner.
With immediate effect, ACCRETECH Tokyo Seimitsu is distributing Jenoptik’s leading optical shaft measuring system “Opticline” in Japan. ACCRETECH benefits from the completion of its product portfolio. The company offers Japanese companies Jenoptik’s world-leading optical measurement technology exclusively under its own OEM brand “Shaftcom”. This gives Jenoptik sustainable access to one of the world’s most important automotive manufacturing markets.
“With Opticline, quality control of rotationally symmetrical components is performed during ongoing production. The integrated camera systems with telecentric light optically measure dimensions and contours either randomly or 100% on every workpiece from the production line. The systems are complemented by optional tactile sensors for internal or hidden features,” says Otto Boucky, Managing Director of Jenoptik’s Industrial Metrology business unit. “We are pleased that our unique measurement technology is now available to Japanese customers across the board.”
ACCRETECH responsible for service and maintenance of existing contracts
With the signing of the agreement ACCRETECH has taken over the existing service and maintenance contracts for delivered equipment in Japan. As a result, Jenoptik and ACCRETECH will implement their cooperation as early as February 2022. “Creating value for existing and future customers was the driving factor behind this cooperation,” said Hitoshi Yoshida, President and CEO of ACCRETECH.
