Vibrant Announces New Licensing and Manufacturing Agreement
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- September 9, 2013
Vibrant Corporation has announced a new licensing and manufacturing agreement
with Magnaflux, a division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW). The agreement grants
Vibrant manufacturing rights for Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT)
systems, and also provides the Company long-term access to core intellectual
property for the PCRT technology.
“The ability to build PCRT systems in-house is a tremendous asset for
Vibrant,” said Vibrant Director of Operations Greg Weaver. “The agreement
allows us to incorporate improvements we’ve made to PCRT technology into the
systems we use to service our Aerospace and Power Generation customers. These
enhancements will also help Magnaflux to better serve their rapidly growing
customer base in the Automotive market.”
“This is the kind of win-win arrangement we’ve come to expect in our dealings
with Magnaflux,” said Lem Hunter, CEO of Vibrant. “Consolidation of
intellectual property and manufacturing brightens the future of both
companies.” Future PCRT systems will be produced by Vibrant Corporation in
Albuquerque, NM and by Vibrant GmbH in Limburg, Germany.
