Xygent GmbH Names FEINMESS GmbH & Co. KG its First German "Xact Technology Provider"

Deal designates FEINMESS GmbH & Co. KG an authorized reseller, service and support provider for Xygent's Xact Technology software products

Wetzlar, Germany (Oct. 16, 2001)-Xygent GmbH, a subsidiary of Xygent Inc., developer and distributor of the world's first and only enterprise-wide metrology architecture and applications suite, has signed its first Xact Technology Provider (XTP) agreement in Germany with FEINMESS GmbH & Co. KG. Under the terms of the non-exclusive agreement, FEINMESS, located in Bad Endbach, Hessen, becomes an authorized reseller as well as front-line service and support provider for Xygent's Xact Technolgy software products throughout Germany and some dedicated European enterprises.

Designed to run with Xygent's enterprise-wide XactCOM architecture, Xact products, such as XactMeasure(r) for CMMs and XactCNC(tm) for CNC tooling machines, support the full integration of dimensional inspection with manufacturing operations, allowing manufacturers to move beyond simple data gathering to a more complete understanding of how processes actually work.

"FEINMESS' expert metrology expertise, in-depth knowledge of legacy products and outstanding reputation for both customer support and accuracy, are exactly the qualifications we have been looking for to support Xact Measure and WDBXecute in the German Market," said Steven Proulx, general manager of the Xygent GmbH.

Michael Trenk, general manager and one of the owners of FEINMESS said, "We were looking for software that delivers CAD functionality for a long time. With XactMeasure, we have a system for on- and offline use available that's up to date and well prepared for the future. Another advantage is that Xact Measure's WDBXecute integrates the full functionality of Quindos, the software we previously used, which means that not a single existing application program needs to be rewritten."


FEINMESS GmbH & CO. KG was founded in 1992 as a corporation for quality assurance and metrology with the target to offer an independent and comprehensive service in the area of dimensional metrology. The company is based at Bad Endbach, in the area of the Lahn-Dill hills, in the heart of Hessen, a state in central Germany.

FEINMESS offers a range of metrology services and is an industry partner for tasks such as first piece inspection, contract production inspection, CMM verification, CMM calibration, software training and application programming. FEINMESS metrology products include Robax hole plates for CMM verification and calibration and FEINTEMP, a temperature and humidity measuring system, including the related software, for monitoring and classifying measuring rooms according to VDI/VDE 2627 standards.
