ASF Metrology to Acquire Nikon Metrology's CMM Business

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Nikon Metrology has announced that ASF Metrology is acquiring Nikon Metrology’s coordinate measuring machines (CMM) business. Nikon Metrology’s CMM activities, with offices in Belgium, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, represent approximately 25 percent of Nikon Metrology, which will continue to serve selected accounts as part of a Nikon-ASF partnership.

“This business transfer is in line with the 2017 Nikon Corporation strategic review for industrial metrology to focus on noncontact inspection, based on optical and X-ray technology,” says Hajime Kosawa, CEO of Nikon Metrology, based in Leuven, Belgium.

“I believe that ASF Metrology’s competitive position in the industry and its focus on CMM will enable us to expand the existing solid customer base,” says Angelo Muscarella, CEO and owner of ASF Metrology in Varallo, Italy.
