This is not a 3D Printing manufacturer. They manufacture 3D metrology equipment - or 3D measurement. I don't believe this is in demand yet, because 3D printing is still in its infancy. However, because all final products are made in 3 dimensions, there is an obvious use when it comes to products which need precise metrology solutions. In the meantime, 3D Printing is still commonly used for prototyping, which means it is not subject to tight standards and regulations. When 3D Printing moves past prototyping into a greater production phase, I could see a precise 3D metrology solution like the one offered by Perceptron developing a great following.
