NanoFocus signs cooperation agreement with Atilim University/Ankara
High-precision surface measurement technology for quality assurance and process control gains importance in Turkey
NanoFocus AG, manufacturer of optical 3D surface measurement technology and analysis software for the characterization of technical surfaces, signed a cooperation agreement with Atilim University in Ankara. The company also intensifies its market activities in Turkey.
Turkey, with its constant and significant economic growth in the past decades, has turned into a manufacturing location with a strong industrial basis. In this framework, reliable quality management and production control become increasingly more important. Research institutes and companies alike invest in high-precision measurement and control technology. “Being the largest market in South-East Europe and a gateway between Europe, the Near East and Central Asia, Turkey offers great potential for our technology. We will continue to expand our presence in the Turkish market in the sector of production-oriented optical 3D surface analysis”, says Jürgen Valentin, Chief Technology Officer of NanoFocus.
Accompanying the economic growth the Turkish government invests heavily in education, research and technology programs. This leads to a growing knowhow in high technology in the industrial as well as in the academic sector. “We consider ourselves lucky to cooperate with Atilim University, a partner with highest dedication to excellence, and to accompany this development. The close relationships between the university and the industry as well as the industry-related research at Atilim University are very interesting for us,” explains Jürgen Valentin. The main focus of the cooperation will be on engineering.
Prof. Dr. Bilgin Kaftanoglu, Chairperson of Manufacturing Engineering of Atilim University, expresses equally positive views about the future collaboration: “In NanoFocus we found a partner with profound and specialized knowledge of optical 3D surface measurement technology. We look forward to an active exchange of ideas about technological and economic topics.”
