Kapp Niles has announced the expansion of its product portfolio by adding high-end metrology solutions. The new-found division Kapp Niles Metrology GmbH, based in Aschaffenburg, Germany, leverages the wealth of experience and technology from R&P Metrology GmbH, whose employees and management are joining the new company. Kapp Niles Metrology designs and builds customized large 4- and 5-axis analyzers built to VDI/VDE class I. A derivative of the technology is a transportable 3-axis device for analyzing gears in the shop on cutting machines or even in a gear box. An expansion into the metrology sector complements the Kapp Niles product portfolio for gear and profile grinding up to 8 meters. The new company will also provide sales and support in Europe and Asia for the smaller gear analyzers and products of Penta Gear Metrology of Dayton, OH (pentagear.com), which joined Kapp Technologies in 2015. Both Kapp Niles Metrology GmbH and Penta Gear Metrology are innovators in their respective sectors and now join forces for further advancements. Industry 4.0 is just one of the areas customers will benefit from these extensive integrated solutions to the gear industry.
