Metaltronica commenced in 1977 as a manufacturer of radiology equipment. We rapidly became known for our dynamism and the numerous innovations that differentiate our devices.
Very early we decided to concentrate all our activities in the field of diagnostic imaging, with a particular focus on mammography equipment.
The turning point at domestic and international level came in 1988, with the major commercial success of Europe’s first mammogram machine equipped with a high frequency generator (COMPACT MAMMO HF), and with the introduction of a fully automated exposure technique.
In the mid-90s, Metaltronica became established as the leading firm in the sector with FLAT E, a product whose elegant and innovative design made it iconic in the mammography field.
Metaltronica turned a new page towards the end of 2004. Backed by significant investment, development work started on the changeover from analogue to digital mammography.
Prevention is still the most effective weapon to win such a difficult fight as the one against breast cancer.
Digital mammography represents a true turning point as it spots 20% more cancer cases in an earlier stage if compared to analogue mammography.
The fast technological progress in all field of diagnostic imaging led companies to invest their resources in this direction and to make use of long- experienced and well prepared staff.
Metaltronica decided to put its R&D efforts into these new high technology examination methods that are entering the mammography field.
The aim is to improve diagnostic capabilities and to extend them to a wider age-range. But the commitment goes even further and it is not strictly limited to the technical field. Metaltronica knows very well how important it is to spread the awareness about the importance of early diagnosis. We have been designing and manufacturing mammography devices for almost 40 years, our long experience and the excellent skills of our staff grant the highest productivity levels and quality standards.
Quality is a fundamental aspect in health sector. That’s why Metaltronica considers a moral duty and a professional responsibility to provide its customers with perfect and reliable diagnostic equipment.
One of Metaltronica main purposes is in fact to continuosly improve its Quality Management System, by strictly applying the most recent international standards to internal and external processes.
