FocalSpec, Ltd, the leading developer and manufacturer of Line Confocal Imaging (LCI) sensors and LCI-based 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and Automated Optical Measurement (AOM) systems for the electronics and cable & wire manufacturing industries, is pleased to announce the launch of FocalSpec, Inc., a wholly-owned US subsidiary based in Cumming, Georgia, near Atlanta. By forming the new company, FocalSpec will provide sales, technical and application support for its customers throughout North America.
The new US operation is FocalSpec’s response to its market research, existing relations with North American early adopters, and higher customer interest that the company has recently experienced in the area.
“The customers we work with have increasingly demanding needs for 3D and surface quality measurements where traditional technologies, such as lasers or coordinate measuring machines, do not work well on,” said Juha Saily, Sales Manager for FocalSpec, Inc. “Our unique LCI imaging technology doesn’t suffer from most of the limitations that other methods are subject to and, we want to be closer to the customer in bringing a working solution.”
The company is planning to make its entire product line available in North America and several product launches are scheduled for the coming months.
FocalSpec Ltd, headquartered in Oulu, Finland, was founded in 2009 as a corporate spin-off from Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT). The company’s sensor products and 3D AOI/AOM systems are based on dual-axis Line Confocal Imaging technology that is patented worldwide.
