Kapp Technologies L.P., Penta Gear Metrology LLC and Koepfer America LLC have entered into an agreement for technical sales representation and collaboration in North America. The companies will share technical sales and engineering resources to support the growing demand for gear hobbing, shaping, chamfering, grinding, and measurement equipment and tools. This collaboration is intended to ensure that gear manufacturers have swift access to the latest technologies available.

Koepfer America, recently renamed Helios Products LLC and based in South Elgin, Illinois, has earned a reputation serving its customer base for over 30 years with hobbing, shaping, hob sharpening, chamfering and analytical measurement technology. Kapp Technologies, based in Boulder, Colorado, provides precision gear and rotor tooth grinding and measuring equipment to all market sectors. Penta Gear Metrology, based in Dayton, Ohio, is a maker of analytical measuring machine control, software and functional gaging solutions and became a subsidiary of Kapp Technologies in 2015.

Bill Miller, of Kapp Technologies, says that the three companies traditionally used to have unique, niche customer bases, but that is changing. Leveraging the established sales relationships will benefit collectively all customers, he suggests.
