Allied Vision Technologies Achieves ISO 13485
Certification for Medical Equipment


Camera development and manufacturing comply with quality assurance
norm for medical devices
.

Stadtroda,
March 1. 2012



Leading machine vision camera manufacturer Allied Vision
Technologies (AVT) now complies with the ISO 13485:2010 norm for the development
and production of digital cameras and components used for image processing in
medical devic
es. The company’s quality
management system was successfully audited
by Eurocat Institute for Certificati
on and Testing in
Nov
ember 2011 and the certificate
delivered early February 2012.

The scope of the certification covers the whole product
life cycle f
rom design to service and repair via manufacturing and sales.


Major

application market

Medical imaging has been a key market for AVT for many years. With applications
such as ophthalmology, microscopy, dental imaging, 3D scanning or motion capture for
orthopedic diagnosis, the company has established a strong reputation in the medical
device

market, which has become
a major

sales area
beyond

industrial inspection.

“Although we have been complying to the highest qu
ality standards for years

and enjoy
a very good reputation in the industry, we

felt it was time to have
not only the ISO 9001
certificate but also the ISO 13485 certificate for medical devices in place
”,

explains

Dr.
Volker Hartman, Total Quality Manager of Allied Vision Technologies.
“This
validation
according to an international standard will help us win even more medical busin
ess in
our growth markets Asia and the Americas”.
