ShapeGrabber and Nikon Instruments Inc. Announce Distribution Agreement
Date:4/8/2008

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- ShapeGrabber and Nikon Instruments Inc. today announced an agreement where Nikon will serve as a sales distribution channel in the United States for ShapeGrabber's Ai310 and Ai810 3D laser scanner inspection systems. This arrangement will increase ShapeGrabber's current distribution through Nikon Instrument's extensive network, while enabling Nikon to provide customers with additional non-contact solutions to meet their customers' industrial inspection and metrology needs.

The ShapeGrabber inspection system uses an innovative laser based line scanning technology that allows the inspector to rapidly generate a complete 3-Dimensional virtual model of a part so that critical inspection and measurements can be easily made.

Marc Bisson, CEO of ShapeGrabber, commented on the distribution deal: "The relationship with Nikon will increase the sales of our products and help us bring our solutions to a wider set of industrial customers. We are thrilled to be working with Nikon, a professional organization that has excellent products and a great reputation."

Hajime Kosawa, Division Manager with Nikon, said: "Through this agreement, Nikon will be able to broaden the scope of solutions we can provide our customers by offering ShapeGrabber's quality 3D scanning products. We are glad to be working with ShapeGrabber and look forward to introducing these complementary products to more fully meet our customers' needs."
