Shreyansh B Hippargi, Managing Director, QVI India Pvt. Ltd
Quality Vision International (QVI) was founded in 1945 as Optical Gaging Products (OGP) with manufacturing of Profile Projectors. In 1980 we were the first to introduce Vision Measuring Systems to the Industry. In early 1990s we launched, our now world-famous Model, SMARTSCOPE Vision Measuring Systems. We have sold thousands of SmartScope Systems across the world till date. Today QVI offers more than 70 models of dimensional measuring systems.
QVI has an installed base of more than 60,000 systems in over 75 countries. We have sales & service offices in different parts of the World. We have over 100 channel partners worldwide. The key is to be as close to customer as possible to give in time pre-& post-sales support.
QVI is expert in optical technologies applied to non-contact dimensional measurement. Products range from optical comparators (profile projectors) to Vision Measurement Systems with multisensor capabilities. Vision systems forms the majority of the product range that we make. We also manufacture complimentary products including 3D Laser Scanning Systems and CMMs with unique touch, laser, and video sensor capabilities.
Our marketing strategy for India is to make the QVI brand known to current and potential customers. We started in India in 2008 under the OGP brand which is now QVI. We have Channel Partners across the Country who play key role in promoting our Products. We are looking for additional channel partners in some of the key industrial hubs of India, where we don’t have any presence now. At the same time, we are strengthening our staff for Support activities. We also participate in key Trade Shows to boost our brand awareness & resulting Sales.
R&D is vital for any Organisation’s Growth, and we are no exception. QVI Inc’s focus has always been developing new technologies that will help manufacturers around the world to ease out their Inspection challenges. To that effect we have a dedicated R&D team at our Head Quarters in Rochester, New York, US. The company has numerous patents on its innovative technologies. QVI applies its R&D to its evolving product lines in order to meet the changing needs of advanced manufacturers worldwide.
QVI is ISO 9001:2015 certified for its manufacturing activities at Rochester, NY, US. Our state of the art calibration lab at HQ is ISO17025 qualified. QVI controls its quality through vertical integration. We do our own design of systems, hardware and software. We have multiple machining centers, a paint shop, optical and electronics assembly – all to ensure highest quality. This helps us in having total Quality Control ensuring customer satisfaction. Our focus on customers is shown with our company tagline “Precision for People.”
There are many factors like advanced manufacturing equipment that allows creation of parts with complex forms and tight tolerances, constantly changing competition, Price Pressures, changing Market Conditions, Government Policies and Customer needs. Throughout these dynamics our focus stays on meeting and exceeding our customers’ needs.
Traditional metal machining and injection molding continue to evolve with greater capabilities to make complex parts; additive manufacturing is gaining traction; Industry 4.0 and IoT are becoming embraced by manufacturers. We stay tuned to technological developments so our products enable manufacturers to keep advancing their capabilities and quality.
Currently the Market particularly in India is looking good, and we feel that this growth, will continue until Q3 of this FY19, to see slight fall in Q4 due to General Elections in May 2019. Longer term, QVI believes India will become a dominant market in its global portfolio of satisfied customers.
We are optimistic that the unique capabilities of QVI systems and software will meet the needs of ever more customers in India, even as our competitors recognize the opportunity that India represents. We’re sure your readers will become familiar with QVI if they need to reliably measure the parts they manufacture.
