Mitutoyo Corporation (headquarters: Takatsu-ku, Kawasaki-shi, Japan; President: Yoshiaki Numata) has signed a marketing agreement with analytical, measuring instrument and industrial machinery manufacturing giant Shimadzu Corporation. Henceforth, Mitutoyo will add Shimadzu Corporation’s dimensional X-ray CT system XDimensus 300 to its sales line-up in Japan. XDimensus 300 is the flagship model, boasting the highest level of accuracy in Japan, with a maximum permissible indication error of ±3.8 to 9.8 μm (depending on the measured dimensions). Mitutoyo’s forte, coordinate measuring machines, offer precision contact and non-contact measurement of the external geometries, thereby complementing the non-destructive internal measurement provided by the dimensional X-ray CT system.

Through this agreement, customers benefit from a line-up of Shimadzu Corporation’s dimensional X-ray CT system and Mitutoyo’s coordinate measuring machines through one company, Mitutoyo, for all the products required to measure internal and external geometries. Customers can also receive a unified support system through a single point of contact. Going forward, Mitutoyo and Shimadzu Corporation will broadly expand their cooperation, increasing the range of products in their marketing agreement, undertaking collaborative development, and cultivating overseas sales channels.

Mitutoyo offers a range of products and solutions that integrate knowledge and experience relating to measurement technology and precision measurement that it has fostered over 85 years since its founding. By signing a constructive business alliance agreement for handling this product, which integrates Shimadzu Corporation’s over 120 years of X-ray inspection and analysis technology, Mitutoyo will enhance its system for contributing to society as the most suitable trusted solution provider for diversifying quality management issues, against the backdrop of dramatic evolution of the manufacturing environment.

Mitutoyo contributes to society through precision measurement for the ever-evolving future of manufacturing.
