RudolphRudolph Technologies, Inc. has announced that it has sold its lead scanner assets and licensed related intellectual property acquired from RVSI Inspection, LLC to privately-held BKM Technology Partners, LLC. Rudolph acquired the product line in January 2008. The sale will see BKM provide global sales and service for the RVSI lead scanner product line following the transfer of assets and inventory in the third quarter of 2008.

“Our screening process involved an extensive review of candidates to help ensure this business would be handled by an entity that could capably support lead scanner customers on a global scale," said Nathan Little, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Rudolph's Inspection Business Unit. "As such, we will work closely with BKM through an appropriate transition period to facilitate a smooth hand-off of the assets and related product support."
