QFP has worked continuously in large aerospace projects (A380, A330, A320, A350, B737, B747, ATR,..), directly managing large work packages in international environment, starting form concept design to final certification. This experience permits today the successful development of integrated design of the automated systems.
QFP has been constantly engaged in the design and implementation of automated measuring systems for customers such as FCA Pomigliano plant, Melfi plant, Cassino Plant, Augusta Westland, Alenia, improving its know-how in the construction of automatic measuring scanning systems.
From 2015 to today
In 2015 QFP has realized the QBOX project and brings on the market a standard measuring device for automatic scanning. The first installations was made during the same year at our main customer’s plants.
QFP has launched a major company reorganization of all departments and management levels, necessary to proceed with the safe growing of the company, driven by the automation business from this time on.
In 2015 Steinbichler was acquired by Carl Zeiss and became ZEISS Optotechnik. QFP signed an agreement of exclusive distribution with Zeiss Italy for the distribution of ZEISS OPT products.
