LMI Technologies acquires German company GFMesstechnik GmbH
LMI Technologies has signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the shares of GFMesstechnik GmbH - a leading supplier of 3D metrology products based in Teltow/Berlin. The acquisition will result in the integration of GFM by LMI Technologies under the LMI brand creating a strong presence in Germany and increasing product representation worldwide with the addition of the GFM reseller network. At 30 employees and 5.000.000 € annual revenue, GFM is a pioneer in the development of structured light metrology since 1995 and was one of the first companies that worked closely with Texas Instruments to integrate their DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology into highly accurate 3D measurement products such as their leading MikroCAD instruments.
GFM focuses on small volume measurement (as small as 1mm) with very high accuracy (100nm) suitable for surface analysis of micro texture or inline inspection of electronic, medical, morpharmaceutical parts with microscopic detail. GFM's 19 years of working with customers to solve their measurement challenges has allowed them to develop extensive application knowledge and advanced 3D measurement algorithms.
