Mitutoyo, API Announce Reseller Agreement
The agreement enables Mitutoyo to distribute API metrology products across its worldwide network.
API and Mitutoyo Corporation have announced a partnership to distribute API’s portable dimensional metrology equipment throughout Mitutoyo’s worldwide network. Adding API’s complete portfolio of portable equipment to Mitutoyo’s already diverse portfolio was a natural fit for both companies.
“API really invented portable dimensional metrology, especially in the form of precise, laser measurements,” says Yoshiaki Numata, president of Mitutoyo Corporation. “So, for Mitutoyo, this was a great opportunity to add the most complete line of high-quality portable metrology equipment to what we can offer to our customers.”
“Mitutoyo has developed the most diverse, comprehensive portfolio of metrology equipment, hardware, and software, and they have built a truly impressive global distribution network,” says Joe Bioty, president of API. “By adding API’s portable equipment to that offering, Mitutoyo really becomes a one-stop shop for metrology needs in manufacturing worldwide, which provides tremendous value to the customer.”
API products through Mitutoyo will be available in regions around the world effective May 1, 2021.
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.
Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.
