ShapeGrabber and Nikon Instruments Inc. Announce Distribution Agreement

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.
