Italy's Foremost Distributor of Analytical Instruments Adds Headwall's Hyperspectral Sensors and Raman Imagers

Press release date: October 30, 2013

Headwall has announced a new distributor partnership with Diessechem srl, with offices in Milan, Italy. The agreement between the two companies is effective immediately and forges a distribution relationship in Italy for Headwall's award-winning Hyperspec® line of hyperspectral sensors and Raman imagers. Mr. Francesco Beccari, Product Manager for Diessechem, has extensive experience in spectral imaging and will be handling sales, support, training and deployment on behalf of Headwall.

In announcing the appointment, Headwall CEO David Bannon remarked on the depth of spectral imaging knowledge at Diessechem. "From pharmaceuticals to food processing, to remote sensing, Diesschem is uniquely able to fulfill rising demand for Headwall's spectral imaging instruments and custom spectrometers as well as provide the critical training and engineering assistance vital to every successful deployment."

Diessechem, operating since 1993, will be managing Headwall's hyperspectral and Raman imagers through its Diesseinstrument unit. Since the Company handles other complementary imaging technologies, Diessechem is able to provide end-to-end, application-specific solutions built around Headwall's range of sensors. Mr. Beccari noted that Headwall's hyperspectral sensors fit Diessechem perfectly: "Spectral imaging is much more than simply a catalog of products," he noted. "Our ability to now offer Headwall's industry-leading hyperspectral imagers across all our markets represents a very important advancement for our clients across Italy."

Hyperspectral imaging can quickly and non-destructively image objects within the field of view to determine its chemical and spectral fingerprint. Headwall's sensors take advantage of reflective diffractive optics, which use aberration-corrected gratings to deliver high performance with respect to high spatial and spectral resolution, high signal-to-noise performance, and a wide field of view. Remote sensing using small and light sensors mounted to small aerial platforms and manned aircraft is a fast-growing application area that Headwall has pioneered. Other application areas include advanced machine vision, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and mining & mineral exploration.
