-Finally, platform strategies create a unique opportunity for substitution materials to be applied across a wider variety of vehicle segments, bringing scales of sustainability. Such trends the in end-user industry are likely to increase demand for the latest measuring machines with high accuracies.
-Dimensional metrology manufacturers prefer building personal relationships with key automotive manufacturers.
