Jenoptik's 'Better Parts Challenge'

March 10, 2014 - 07:00pm

Jenoptik Industrial Metrology has announced a 2014 event, The Better Parts Challenge., where U.S. manufacturers send their part quality challenges  to be reviewed by the Rochester Hills, Mich.-based metrology manufacturer's experts. These challenges will be reviewed  at "road shows" across the U.S., showing how Jenoptik measuring devices and software can help manufacturers make better quality parts and potentially reduce the cost of production.

"We know that manufacturers are constantly striving to make good parts even better," stated Peter Ackroyd, sales manager for Jenoptik. "Precision measurement of surface, form, and dimensional tolerances will do just that. So, we're challenging customers and potential customers to let us show them how our tools can help them produce their specific parts to a higher quality, at a lower cost."

In addition to The Better Parts Challenge, Jenoptik will conduct seminars on the fundamentals of surface finish and form.

"We're looking to establish a relationship with those industries that want to benefit from our expertise and produce higher quality products," Ackroyd said.

Companies can bring their part to a stop on The Better Parts Challenge tour from April 2014 to November 2014. All road show attendees will be entered to win prizes and a Kindle Fire will be given away each day to one attendee at each event.
