The ISO 13485 standard, recognized internationally, is the reference for the implementation of quality management approaches. It applies to companies designing, manufacturing, repairing and distributing medical devices but also to the control systems of these technological products.
On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, QMT moved to new premises at the beginning of 2010 and successfully passed the ISO9001 certification in 2011. The increase in available space as well as the improvement of the infrastructure enable the reinforcement of the company's strategy, which is to offer innovative solutions, adapted to the customer's needs, from Qualimatest's standard products and platforms and to guarantee the success of our customers through the quality of our services.
In order to offer ever more efficient solutions, QMT started the development of standard equipment in 2007. These are intended for the following applications: quality control - sorting machine - watch industry.
In order to achieve large-scale projects with significant technical challenges, a project-oriented structure has been put in place. She is a major asset for Qualimatest.
During the years 2003 to 2006, QMT invests in its organization to define efficient processes for the development, deployment and maintenance of industrial systems. This organization enabled the quality certification of the company in 2003 and the creation of a strong competence center in project management.
Its rapid rise and momentum earned it, during the year 1995, the Crédit Suisse Technological Innovation Award (Technologiestandort Schweiz).
QMT was founded in 1989 by a group of engineers specializing in materials, mechanics, measurement technology and computer science. Since its founding, QMT has introduced digital imaging for microscopy. In 1991, QMT began a technological partnership with National Instruments for the development of its own facilities and developed Multimicro, a motorized image analyzer with automatic microhardness measurement.
