High-power laser diode maker SemiNex certified as ISO 9001:2008 compliant

SemiNex Corp of Peabody, MA, USA, which designs and makes indium phosphide (InP)-based high-power laser diodes for military, industrial, medical, dental and cosmetic applications, says that it has joined over 1 million companies and organizations worldwide in implementing the ISO 9001:2008 set of standards for quality management systems. The firm’s quality management system received certification from TUV USA (part of TUV NORD International).

Achieving certification usually takes up to 16 months, and typically takes 7-12 months. SemiNex says that it was able to obtain certification in just 3 months, due largely to its existing quality system that had been continually improved over the last 5 years.

“Achieving ISO certification is a reflection of the processes and attention to detail already in place,” says president & founder David Bean.

SemiNex says that it approached certification with the mindset that a review of its processes and procedures would be of value both internally and externally. In addition to formalization of the firm’s Quality Policy (to design & build laser products that consistently meet or exceed customer expectations), SemiNex worked to ensure that all internal procedures and policies reflected this policy. Externally, the firm believes that customers will benefit from the continuous improvements made in support of ISO certification.
