European Inventor Award 2010 for Leica Geosystems engineers

Albert Markendorf and Raimund Loser, metrology specialists at Leica Geosystems, have received the 2010 European Inventor Award  from  The European Patent Office. The  award - in the “Industry” category - is for portable measuring devices.

It was in the middle of the 1990s when Leica Geosystems first identified a great need for mobile devices in industrial metrology to make 3D measurements flexible, accurate and easy to obtain over large distances as required in aircraft manufacturing. Albert Markendorf and Raimund Loser pushed the development of portable CMMs. Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon Metrology, brought them to market successfully.
