The laser-based technologies manufacturer Virtek Vision International inked a distribution agreement with Baykal Machinery for the Virtek LaserQC® inspection system. The LaserQC will be demonstrated in hall 14, stand H14 at EuroBLECH 2014, the international sheet metal working technology exhibition taking place 21 – 25 October in Hanover, Germany.
Baykal is a leading manufacturer and global supplier of sheet metal fabrication machinery, specializing in press brakes, shears, notchers, punching machines, laser cutting systems, plasma cutting machines, waterjet cutting and vertical machining centers. The addition of the LaserQC to the Baykal portfolio will expand the reach of their machinery products into the quality control departments of their current customer base, as well as new prospects. Headquartered in Bursa, Turkey, Baykal will distribute the LaserQC 800, 1200 and AFM inspection systems through regional offices and appointed dealers.
With an evolution of more than 15 years and over 1000 systems installed worldwide, LaserQC is a family of rapid inspection systems that employs lasers to measure the accuracy of 2 dimensional and formed parts to very tight tolerances. Advantageous for sheet metal and other manufacturing environments to improve quality control and reduce waste, LaserQC’s intuitive user-interface allows all cutting and punch machine operators to quickly become fully proficient in proofing their own parts, removing the QC bottleneck. The system is designed for first article inspection, quality reporting (SPC, ISO, Lean, etc.), reverse engineering and automatic form measurement.
Axel Rieckmann, Director of Sales EMEA & Asia Pacific for Virtek, comments: “We are pleased to have entered into a distribution agreement with Baykal for LaserQC. With their extensive range of sheet metal machinery, the LaserQC inspection system is a valuable addition to help sheet metal manufacturers increase production time and reduce waste and rework with first article inspection. Baykal has a leading share of Turkey’s machine industry market, and is established as a well-known brand worldwide.”
