Algoscan completes takeover of Jenoptik Surface Inspection
All operations of Jenoptik Surface Inspection in Munich, Germany, have been transferred to Algoscan, a newly-founded corporation developing optical inline measurement systems for various fields of surface characterisation.
The experience and skills of the team from Jenoptik Surface Inspection has been retained and the company also has the ability to approach new markets. Algoscan will be entering the photovoltaic field, specifically targeting solar cell manufacturers using the thin film technology that are looking for state-of-the-art solutions to inline surface inspection.
Algoscan has also seen interest from the steel industry, since the new Algoscan systems for surface roughness determination provide competitive advantages to steel manufacturers by improved quality output.
The previous CEO of Jenoptik Surface Inspection, Dr Wolfgang Ullrich, has remained CEO at Algoscan and is also a shareholder.
