At IMA we provide the best solutions for the magnetic industry and continuous innovation is one of the pillars of our organisation. We carry out a continuous programme of research, testing and development of new products and applications, allowing us to position ourselves among the best companies in the sector at world level.

In our quality control equipment, we have fluxometers, gaussmeters, permeameters and different equipment for checking the composition of magnetic and non-magnetic materials. Our equipment is provided with the most advanced technology, allowing us to carry out a large number of tests as well and as accurately as possible.

Every day, IMA works with the commitment and responsibility of ensuring a high-quality product.

Permanent magnets are used in almost all industrial sectors. Our customers from the robotics, pharmaceutical, automobile and aerospace industries have strict requirements that can only be met with a high level of quality control. Our company supplies safety parts, requiring compliance with strict criteria and provisions. Good product quality is the result of detailed planning and precise implementation. We have implemented a quality system in accordance with the guidelines of the international standard EN ISO 9001:2000.

Strictly controlled purchasing of raw materials, suppliers carefully selected for their quality, and wide-ranging chemical, physical and technical checks ensure that top-quality basic materials are used. Statistical process control and checks on materials are carried out using the latest software. Inspections of our outgoing products are carried out in accordance with the standard DIN 40 080.

We have highly qualified staff and a special R+D department which, thanks to monitoring and testing equipment, can obtain a wide range of information, characteristics, curves and magnetic values for our products.

To help you obtain a better understanding of the terminology in the sector, in this section we offer you information corresponding to the different magnetic materials, geometrical variations, tolerances, adherence forces, orientation and magnetisation and magnet shapes, along with an extensive technical dictionary of terminology and definitions.
