Beyond this, Algoscan will develop additional optical inline measurement systems for various fields of surfacecharacterisation of materials. The ongoing success is ensured by the experience and skills of the team, which has remained from the previous entity. By keeping the core competencies and key knowledge on board, the continuity of the company is assured and it now has the ability to approach new markets as well. Algoscan will thus be entering the Photovoltaic field, specifically targeting solar cell manufactures using the Thin Film technology who are looking for state-of-the-art solutions for inline surface inspection. Preliminary talks have already taken place with well-known companies which understand the unique preposition of ALGOSCAN’s solutions. Algoscan has also seen interest from the steel industry, since the new ALGOSCAN systems for surface roughness determination provide competitive advantages to steel manufacturers by improved quality output.
The shareholders of Algoscan GmbH are highly experienced, including many years in the optical industry. Convinced of the success of the new company, the previous CEO of Jenoptik Surface Inspection, Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich, has not only remained CEO at ALGOSCAN, but has also become a shareholder. “For me our company claim ENSURING QUALITY is a personal obligation and an honest promise to our actual and prospective clients”, says Dr Ullrich.
