Jan. 12, 2016 - FocalSpec — the developer and manufacturer of Line Confocal Imaging (LCI) sensors and LCI-based 3D Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and Automated Optical Measurement (AOM) systems — has launched FocalSpec, a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary that will provide sales, technical and application support for North American customers.

Based in Cumming, Ga., the new operation is in response to “market research, existing relations with North American early adopters, and higher customer interest,” says company representatives.

“The customers we work with have increasingly demanding needs for 3D and surface quality measurements where traditional technologies, such as lasers or coordinate measuring machines, do not work well on,” said Juha Saily, FocalSpec sales manager. “Our unique LCI imaging technology doesn’t suffer from most of the limitations that other methods are subject to and, we want to be closer to the customer in bringing a working solution.”
 
The company is planning to make its entire product line available in North America and several product launches are scheduled for the coming months.
 
FocalSpec Ltd., headquartered in Oulu, Finland, was founded in 2009 as a corporate spin-off from Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT).
