Nikon Corporation (Nikon) and DMG MORI have concluded a memorandum of understanding for a comprehensive business alliance. As part of the alliance Nikon’s non-contact laser scanner LC15Dx is to be sold integrated onto DMG MORI’s machine tools.
Nikon’s LC15Dx, non-contact laser scanner, enables multi-point measurement with equivalent accuracy of contact-type coordinate measuring machine and high speed by installing high-performance data processing function. Also, LC15Dx is able to efficiently measure a wide variety of parts, including many parts that are too small or fragile for a touch probe without contacting the parts.
DMG MORI will install the LC15Dx to its original non-contact on-machine measuring system, and begin selling the machine tools that install the new measuring system as an option in this autumn. It is ideal for instrumenting and measuring large gears and turbine blades for aircraft, construction machinery, and the energy industry; contributing to improve machining processes and machining accuracy. Equipped products will be expanded sequentially.
Nikon and DMG MORI will achieve synergy by effectively combining the mutual resources of the two companies; Nikon, a company that has the advantage of advanced technological capabilities centering on opto-electronics and precision technologies, and DMG MORI, a leading machine tool company, and cooperate to provide innovative solutions to their customers.
