Nikon Metrology announced today that US based QxSoft LLC has acquired Nikon Metrology’s CMM-Manager business.
CMM-Manager is a task-oriented and highly intuitive 3D metrology software package for vision, manual, and CNC coordinate measuring machines that is compatible with a wide range of machine brands and probing systems without the need for a hardware upgrade. This makes CMM-Manager one of the preferred solutions for CMM retrofits.
QxSoft LLC, based in Columbus (Ohio) is a newly established company by Mr. Jian Shi, current CMM-Manager development manager, and Mr. Nathan Frost, current CMM-Manager product manager. As Mr. Jian Shi, Mr. Nathan Frost and their team are at the core of the CMM-Manager business for many years, they offer the best guarantee for continued customer support and further growth of the business.
Tadashi Nakayama, Corporate VP of Nikon, welcomed the plans: “This business transfer is in line with the Nikon Corporation strategic review to focus on Optical and X-ray inspection and Non-contact metrology”.
Jian Shi, President of QxSoft, commented: “We are excited to develop, foster and support the next chapter of CMM-Manager. This transfer will allow us to focus on our core business, mainly developing innovative 3D metrology software solutions and providing industry leading customer support. Our team's extensive knowledge of the product and long-term experience with the metrology industry situate us perfectly as we expand the CMM-Manager business.”
Both companies will work closely together to ensure a smooth transition for customers and resellers.
