Sensata Technologies

Sensata Technologies is a world leader and early innovator in mission-critical sensors and controls designed to make the world cleaner, safer and more efficient. Mission-critical means products that are essential and difficult to do. You’ll find our 47,000 unique products in many applications – anywhere from automotive braking systems to aircraft flight controls.

Sensata devices are in systems that protect people and the environment, so what we do matters. We take pride in knowing our technologies improve safety, efficiency and comfort for millions of people every day.

Olympus Corporation

Olympus Corporation is an international company operating in industrial, medical and consumer markets, specializing in optics, electronics and precision engineering.  

Olympus Scientific Solutions based out of Waltham, Massachusetts, covers an industry-leading portfolio of innovative test, measurement, and imaging instruments and our products include ultrasonic flaw detectors and thickness gages, videoscopes, borescopes, microscopes, in-line and advanced nondestructive testing systems, XRF and XRD analyzers, interferometers, and a large selection of industrial scanners, probes, software programs, and instrument accessories. 

Our goal is to supply reliable, economical systems globally that enhance safety, security, quality and productivity for customers and that contribute to society. We are committed to actively pursuing the development of new technologies, products, and services that offer the best solutions to customers' needs. Our commitment to designing quality products is directly linked to our customers' responsibility to comply with the highest industry standards and regulations in order to ensure public safety.

Dassault Systèmes

The purpose of Dassault Systèmes is to provide business and people with 3DEXPERIENCE universes to imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature and life.

We are a global leader in sustainable innovation. We provide a virtual experience platform that allows customers to create innovative new products and services, and ultimately address the major challenges facing the world today: cities (how to create cities that are great places to live in?); resources (how to use them in a sustainable way?); healthcare (how can it be both globally managed and personalized?); how to supply and produce; and education and research (how to empower the workforce of the future?). We believe that there is a new world to imagine, create and build by combining science, art and technology. This led us, in 2012, to define our new horizon which we call 3DEXPERIENCE. 

Indeed, achieving a more sustainable future is only possible by leveraging the virtual world. At Dassault Systèmes we believe that virtual worlds extend and improve the real world. The solutions of Dassault Systèmes transform the way products are designed, simulated, produced, marketed and supported, leveraging the virtual world to improve the real world. We have helped industrials disrupt how products are designed and produced - with 3D design, with 3D digital mock-up (DMU), with 3D Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and now with 3DEXPERIENCE. We want to be the catalyst and enabler of the real Industry Renaissance of the 21st century. Combining the real and the virtual leads to new ways of inventing, learning, producing and doing business.
