Advanced Photonix, Inc. Signs Agreement With Value Added Reseller

Advanced Photonix, Inc. ® (NYSE Amex: API) today announced that it has signed a value-added reseller (VAR) agreement for its T-Gauge™ industrial terahertz gauging system with Thermo Fisher Scientific for its line of Thermo Scientific web and metal gauges.

The T-Gauge™ measurement system can be used for on-line or off-line measurements for quality assurance and process control of web based and converting industries. API is developing a VAR partner network to enable T-Gauge™ industrial process control solutions for continuous web, discrete manufacturing and anomaly defect inspection applications. The company plans to develop a VAR network which will serve vertical markets where VARs have unique subject matter expertise. VAR partners are trained to sell, install and support API T-Gauge™ measurement products. Each VAR will have an in house application development T-Gauge system to perform feasibility studies and develop new market applications for non-contact measuring of physical properties such as; multiple layer thickness measurements, density, contamination by foreign substances, sub-surface defects within a product and moisture analysis. The technology is very adaptable to different sensor configurations, including robotic controls, to support many different applications. The resulting innovative gauge will help manufacturers to improve quality and reduce costs.

Richard Kurtz, President and CEO commented, “API is developing and building a VAR partner network and we are pleased to have established this relationship with Thermo Fisher Scientific, which has a long history of investing in new technologies for non-destructive measurement for manufacturing process control, including the introduction of the first beta gauge for basis weight measurements. Thermo Fisher provides a global presence with world class customer support and market knowledge, which we believe will lead to more rapid market adoption of our terahertz T-Gauge™ platform.”

Douglas Wright, Global Commercial Manager for Gauging at Thermo Fisher Scientific added, “We are delighted about this new relationship with Advanced Photonix. Their new sensor technology compliments our Thermo Scientific measurement and control product portfolio to address a wider range of web and metal coating applications. It supports our company strategy to meet customers’ requirements for new and more advanced instruments and process solutions.”
