RAM Optical Appoints Indicate Technologies Distributor for Northern California and Nevada

December 3, 2007

Indicate Technologies Inc. is appointed as distributor for RAM Optical Instrumentation, Inc., in Northern California and Northwestern Nevada, effective December 3, 2007.

Indicate Technologies Inc. was founded in 2004 in Santa Clara, California, as an independent distributor and representative of precision dimensional measurement instruments.

RAM Optical Instrumentation, Inc., Rochester, NY, was founded in 1981 and was acquired by Quality Vision International, Inc. in 2002.

This appointment brings together the three flagship brands of Quality Vision International, Inc. (QVI) under a single distributor / representative organization for the first time in the United States.  This consolidation of distribution is structured to leverage Indicate Technologies’ success with the other QVI products for the benefit of the RAM Optical brand.

Indicate Technologies is also the representative for Optical Gaging Products (OGP) and View Engineering for this territory.  “Adding RAM Optical to our product offering is a critical step in our development as a solutions provider”, said John Hammond, President of Indicate Technologies.

 RAM Optical’s Sprint line is an entry level measurement microscope that employs many of the basic features found in OGP’s higher-end systems at an unbeatable price.  The market for these systems in the $10,000 - $30,000 range is much larger in terms of numbers of systems than the multi-sensor and high performance markets addressed by OGP’s SmartScope and View Engineering’s Benchmark, Pinnacle, Summit and Innova systems.  Bringing all three manufacturers together enables Indicate Technologies to provide a broader spectrum of solutions covering basic manual microscopes, general purpose multi-sensor measuring machines and specialized production oriented vision and laser measurement systems. 

“Indicate Technologies can now serve our customers more completely by bringing our solutions based approach to a larger audience at a more affordable price,” added Mr. Hammond.
