Quality and product safety

Quality policy

Main Initiatives

We are ISO 9001 certified for designing, developing, manufacturing, inspecting, delivering, installing, calibrating and servicing (repairing) electronic measuring equipment in order to guarantee a high level of quality and to satisfy our customers. We have also obtained ISO/IEC 17025 to certify that we are capable of performing high-level tests and calibrations, satisfying "technical requirements" such as validation of testing and calibration methods, traceability, accuracy of results, and reliability, in addition to our quality control system similar to that of ISO 9001. We strive to improve safety and quality by complying with relevant laws and regulations, by having all divisions clarify quality objectives in line with our quality policy, and by implementing a PDCA cycle to satisfy our customers’ quality requirements consistently.

Inspection and support structure

Specialized technical staff in each field perform pre-delivery inspections and provide after-delivery technical support for products used by customers so that they can be used in their operations in a timely manner. Periodic calibrations and repairs due to sudden failures after purchase are performed promptly to minimize customer downtime. We also provide support to help our customers solve their problems by responding to technical inquiries so that our products can be used in a good condition for a long period of time.

Based on the know-how we have accumulated through our support of cutting-edge measuring instruments, we develop new measurement systems and customize them to expand functions and to improve quality in response to further needs of our customers.

Quality performance

There have been no accidents related to product safety, such as electrical fire accidents or the contamination of substances with environmental impact that exceed regulations.
