NanoFocus takes over SISCAN
NanoFocus AG Takes Over SISCAN Division of SEAS GmbH & Co. KG
Measuring technology manufacturer NanoFocus AG has taken over the SISCAN division of Siemens Electronics Assembly Systems GmbH & Co. KG. The patented confocal technology, which is being continued and developed by NanoFocus, is the perfect complement to the existing technology platform. The 3D inline inspection system will be presented on this year´s Productronica in Munich, Germany, under its new name.
SISCAN technology uses the world’s fastest confocal sensor. With up to more than a million measurements per second, it is the ideal solution for inline measuring tasks in production. The flexible confocal system is suitable for a broad bandwidth of applications, and particularly so for 3D form inspections, for instance, bump inspections on wafers and substrates and for the inspection of laser welds. The technology has already proven itself with numerous customers in the production and research sectors.
Along with the SISCAN division, patents and expertise as well as warehouse and production facilities are also being transferred over to NanoFocus AG. Thanks to the technological affinity with previous NanoFocus products, the inclusion of the production facility at the Oberhausen site and the takeover of the sales department will be quick and effective. Siemens and NanoFocus AG are also extremely keen to ensure the continued professional, first-class support provided to existing users of SISCAN technology, which in future will be taken care of by NanoFocus' customer services department.
Once integration has been successfully completed, NanoFocus is planning to expand the new range of sensors and to develop it further. "We want to make full use of the tremendous potential that this technology offers," explains Dr. Hans Hermann Schreier, CEO of NanoFocus AG. “With further improvements in performance and new applications, our goal is to move into international markets for the medical technology, solar and cleantech growth industries.”
