API and Mitutoyo agree global partnership in metrology

API Metrology, the inventor of the laser tracker, is partnering with the leading measurement and inspection solutions provider to complete the most diverse metrology hardware and software portfolio.

API and Mitutoyo have agreed a partnership to distribute API’s portable dimensional metrology equipment throughout Mitutoyo’s worldwide network.

Production times and tolerances continue to grow tighter for manufacturers around the world, and their need for precise, portable measurement hardware and software has increased to meet this demand.

Adding API’s complete portfolio of portable equipment to Mitutoyo’s already diverse portfolio to meet this demand was a natural fit for both companies.

Yoshiaki Numata, president of Mitutoyo, says: “API really invented portable dimensional metrology, especially in the form of precise, laser measurements.

“So, for Mitutoyo, this was a great opportunity to add the most complete line of high-quality portable metrology equipment to what we can offer to our customers.”

Joe Bioty, president of API, says: “Mitutoyo has developed the most diverse, comprehensive portfolio of metrology equipment, hardware, and software, and they have built a truly impressive global distribution network.

“By adding API’s portable equipment to that offering, Mitutoyo really becomes a one-stop shop for metrology needs in manufacturing worldwide, which provides tremendous value to the customer.”

API’s complete offering of portable equipment and Mitutoyo’s already diverse portfolio is an ideal combination that will deliver high-quality metrology products to companies at the speed they need.

API products through Mitutoyo will be available in regions around the world effective May 1st, 2021.
