Dr Athinodoros Klipfel, who has made a name for himself as a distributor of ATs 3D sensors, was rewarded for his passionate commitment and extensive expertise with promotion to head of sales at Automation Technology.
Possessing a doctorate in mechanical engineering, his role will see him not just manage sales of the 3D sensor technology but also the infrared division.
Klipfel, who has been at Automation Technology for 16 years, said: “I like challenges and am therefore very happy about my promotion. Our products in the infrared camera sector complement 3D sensor technology perfectly and offer similar growth potential. My goal is to continue to advance AT’s entire product portfolio. This is where my years of work as an engineer in this industry will benefit me.”
In response to the ever-increasing demand for innovative solutions for visualisation technology, AT has restructured its sales department and is merging its sales networks for 3D and thermographic products, as this is expected to produce a potential synergy effect.
AT has been attracting attention with a specially developed fever control, which can potentially help slow down the spread of the coronavirus.
Global demand has been good from the worldwide network of sales partners. The “FebriScan” was developed as an access control system with integrated fever measurement technology. With the aid of a smart infrared camera, a temperature reference body and a “FeverScreening” app, it was able to record the temperature of passing persons within one second with high precision.
*Automation Technology has also been nominated for the ‘Best of Industry Award 2020’ with its IRSX smart infrared camera series.
The award will be presented on June 25 in Würzburg, Germany. Online voting for the award started this week via www.maschinenmarkt.de/best-of-industry/voting20.
