New routes for technology transfer

In October 2004 ETALON AG was founded – a spin-off enterprise that will initially reside on the PTB site. In roughly three years the company will move to a new location outside PTB. The goal of ETALON is to enable and foster optimal technology transfer of two developments of the department "Coordinate Metrology": an internet-based system to control measurement instruments in industry and a novel procedure to collect and correct deviations of measuring and manufacturing machines. Besides two PTB employees two regional mediumsized-enterprises joined the founding of the enterprise. So far, two new full-time jobs have been created.
