Since 1971, M.D. Micro Detectors S.p.A. (formerly called Diell) designs and manufactures a wide range of industrial sensors. This company was founded in Modena (Italy) based on the idea of an electronics teacher working at the local Technical Institute of Electronics E. Fermi. At the time, Paolo Iori, a lecturer in the Laboratory of Radio Electronics, wanted to implement the first photoelectric sensor for equipment in the ceramic industry, where mechanical sensors are commonly used.
M.D. is rich in tradition, as well as human, professional and material resources, which means the company's ability to offer high-quality services and innovations around the world. The technology, quality and reliability of this brand's products, as well as customer orientation, have always been the main factors of the company's strategy.
A fairly wide range of products consists of photoelectric sensors, proximity sensors, ultrasonic sensors, barrier sensors, security devices, accessories.
Micro Detectors can also propose and market a series of products based on specific customer needs, and in addition design and manufacture innovative solutions for customers' industrial applications using proprietary technologies.
All design and production processes are under constant control, and all products, without exception, are tested twice. The quality of M.D. confirmed by many certificates that the company received over the years of its existence: System ISO 9001: 2008; many products are CE, ATEX, CULUS, Diversey, TÜV and ECOLAB certified. Products for the food industry and harsh environments meet the IP69K rating.
Since 1990, the company has occupied a production area of 6,733 square meters at Strada Santa Caterina 235 in Modena. Now the entire production process (from product development to delivery of orders to customers) and all actions are completely carried out under the strict guidance of company representatives.
All M.D. staff Micro Detectors strongly believes in the importance and need for the strictest control of every process, product and manufacturing technology. There is a strong belief that the Italian character of products and technology is a treasure of invaluable value to the company's customers and partners. M.D. prides itself on its complete end-to-end process - from developing new products to shipping goods to consumers. Accordingly, over the past few years, the main strategic activities have been re-internalized. M.D. Micro Detectors has set important goals for itself, which were achieved through the "integration strategy":
- Expansion of production capacity
- High flexibility
- Full control of production processes
- Control technology
The company adheres to the following principles:
- Continuous improvement
- Visual Control
