RAMSEY, N.J., Nov. 12 -- Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and shape, announces the addition of its new 3D scanning and engineering services division to its existing 3D non-contact scanner business unit.

"This is a very exciting time for us as we launch this new 3D services business," said Jim Clark, KMSA 3D Business Unit Manager. "We see huge potential in offering this type of service to our customers. Many were not able to afford the purchase of hardware this past year due to economic conditions. We were continually asked if we could simply scan parts on a project by project basis."

In a rapid response to better service these customers, KMSA has quickly invested and deployed this new division to address the needs of those looking for 3D service solutions in the areas of reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, 3D scanning, design and engineering as well as finite element analysis.

KMSA has been involved in the development and sale of 3D scanning hardware for well over a decade. "Offering a services division is a major shift in our business model, since our focus has always been on hardware sales. We feel that this shift is very positive and complimentary to the sales side of our business," said Jim.

KMSA will be primarily utilizing its own VIVID and RANGE series 3D equipment as these units will fit almost any application. Being a leading manufacturer of hardware, KMSA has vast applications knowledge from nearly every type of manufacturing industry. "This knowledge positions Konica far above existing service only competitors. We can offer a level of service and expertise to our customers which will be unmatched by anyone else in the industry. For our customers KMSA will be the only resource they will need," added Jim.

KMSA will be offering up to 50% off all new customers' first scanning services job until January 31, 2010. For more detailed information on 3D scanning services please visit www.konicaminolta.com/sensingusa/

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
