FMT Germany has widened its range of products by taking the bussiness of the Swiss measuring istruments manufacturer IPM. This company was founded in 1972 by the Swiss entrepreneur Gerhard Zehner. As he had no descendants to carry on his bussiness he found in FMT the ideal bussiness partner to develop the 40-year old know-how of a prestigious brand.
After the restyling of the brand, IPM is now presenting to the market a new measuring system, the TC-210, a high precision instrument, which was designed for a quick and simple non-contact measurement for cutting tools. The ideal solution for the areas of material control, tool repair, prodution and inspection/final control.
