There are several types of quality control: optical control, acoustic control, vibration control or X-ray control. In the case of the first city, it involves taking one or more images of the object to be controlled. or view. The images are then digitized to be usable by an image processing software, most often dedicated to the control considered. Once the image has been processed, a decision is made with respect to predefined criteria and an action is taken (eg elimination of the part).
At the time of the factory of the future and the connected industry, the automated quality control systems take a place more and more important in the industrial ecosystem. In the objective of quality and operational excellence, these equipment dedicated to the identification of defects induce cost reductions and greatly reduce the difficulty.
It is for having contributed to major advances in this field that Qualimatest is today receiving the innovation prize. SME based in Plan-les-Ouates (Geneva), Qualimatest has developed in collaboration with EPFL platform QMTSubFace, the first system to maintain human criteria in the aspect control, an asset particularly appreciated in the watch industry ( satin, polishing, ...).
Qualimatest certified its organization according to ISO 9001 in 2011 ( certificate ). In addition, for projects in the medical industry, Qualimatest has been ISO 13485 certified since 2014 ( certificate ).
