In 2001, Uniscan Research needed a mechanical metalworking technology that had no equivalent in Russia at that moment. We purchased equipment and trained specialists to work with it. That is how the Metal Treatment Center appeared. However, orders from our company employed the equipment for mere 10% and most of the time it stood idle.
To use the equipment more efficiently, managers of the Metal Treatment Center started to look for external orders.
Later, within Metal Treatment Center, we created a foundry that manufactured polyurethane housings for devices. Drawing on our previous experience, we focused the foundry on working for both Uniscan Research and the external market from the very beginning. As the market grew, the Metal Treatment Center began to design housing and instrumentation as well as gained skills in the field of industrial design.
In 2008, it became evident that the Metal Treatment Center evolved into an independent technological company that had no direct relation to developments of Uniscan Research. The technical processes of the Metal Treatment Center were singled out into a separate enterprise that was named BTR (Technical Solutions Office).
As a result, Uniscan Research could focus on its projects and use mechanical treatment, moulding and design services when it was necessary. At the same time BTR team was now able to position itself more clearly in the market of technological services and widen its range of services. At the present time BTR is called LOGEEKS and has several sister projects related to 3D prototyping: Prototypster and MeMeToo. Uniscan Research has no priority and uses the services of the company just as the other clients.
