Dr. Norman Uhlmann and Dr. Steven Oeckl take up new positions

On July 1, 2015, Dr. Steven Oeckl, former head of the “Algorithmics” group, took over the reins of the “Inline Testing Systems” department at the Development Center for X-Ray Technology in Fürth, which has now been renamed “Production Monitoring.” The main focus of the department’s activities is on the development of in-line monitoring systems designed to reduce rejects and scrap. This leads to greater resource efficiency, enabling capacity to be increased while consuming the same amount of energy and raw materials. Apart from strengthening customers’ competitiveness, this also benefits the environment. Also on July 1, 2015, Dr. Norman Uhlmann, head of the “Application­Specific Methods and Systems” department, took up his new duties as acting director of the Develop- ment Center for X-ray Technology in Fürth.
