Ametek appoints Divisional Vice President of Project and Product Management
Ametek Surface Vision has enhanced its senior management team with the appointment of Jason Zyglis to the newly created role of Divisional Vice President of Project and Product Management. A graduate of the State University of New York College of Environmental Science & Forestry at Syracuse University with a degree in Paper Science (Chemical Engineering), Zyglis transitions from Ametek Surface Vision’s Director of Sales - Americas to Divisional Vice President of Project and Product Management to now lead the business unit’s product management process and project engineering team. Rising from within the organisation, he brings two decades of experience focused on strategic product marketing, sales and business development.
“I am driven to solve challenges that end users encounter at critical stages in the industrial processing environment with innovative visual technology. I am delighted to lead the project and product management for the largest and most-respected surface inspection and monitoring company in the industry,” comments Zyglis.
“Although historically gross defects were deemed challenging, we are now entering the next generation of visual inspection, in which target defects are measured in microns, process speeds exceed 80 mph, and detection defects so subtle the human eye may not be able to resolve them.”
“This accelerating rate of change in surface inspection requirements means we are continually utilizing advanced technology. Now, each solution presented by our team may combine new sensors, lighting advancements, increased data rates, processing power enhancements, and complex defect clarification algorithms. Our aim is focused on achieving perfection for the end user. For example, the pride a manufacturer may have in a flawless new car exterior.”
