Micronor Inc., a manufacturer of innovative fiber optic kinetic sensors for industrial and medical applications, has announced that they have been certified under ISO 9001:2015 as of March 5, 2018. The company earned certification from registrar TUV Nord USA.
Led by Micronor’s Operations Manager, Daniel Montes, this certification further assures Micronor’s customers of the company’s ongoing commitment to quality and reliability under the global quality standard. It is a major milestone for Micronor that will further enhance its traction in the global marketplace.
“Formal ISO certification is helping us further grow the company,” said Robert Rickenbach, president and chief engineer, “while maintaining our high quality standards and satisfying customer needs to seamlessly integrate us into their quality system.”
In 2003, Micronor developed the MR310 series, the world’s first commercial fiber optic incremental encoders, which was followed by the award of U.S. Patent 7,196,320 in 2007. In 2010, the MR330 was released as the world’s first commercial 13-bit fiber optic absolute rotary encoder with U.S. Patent 8,461,514 to follow in 2013. Other “world firsts” were the release of these products in MRI-compatible versions at the bequest of the medical industry. In 2017, Micronor was awarded the ECN Impact Award for the MR386, the World’s First V-series compatible Fiber Optic Microswitch.
