Interested in joining? We are constantly looking for bright minds to join our team!
We invest in Technology that matters
Solutions from Q-Interline are based on fundamental tree technology areas. We base all systems on our supreme performance high-end Fourier Transform Near-Infrared spectrometer. On top of that we add a keen focus and understanding of proper representative sampling and master all necessary technologies to produce accessories, optical fibres, probes and cells in food grade quality. Finally, we have significantly invested in digital technology, offering a modern digital universe to run and efficiently support and validate all solutions in real-time.
The leading technology behind our solutions offers the customer true and unbiased insight into their process dynamics, which is a solid foundation for the ability to improve product quality and production yield.
We didn’t look follow the easy route! We invested millions in R&D and protected our best finding with patents.
This means a 3 years warranty, no strings attached, on all products – they are built to last!
We value Customer effect
Over the years our unique project model has been proven and tuned to secure an efficient delivery process. In every project, through careful dialogue with the customer we will invest in a detailed understanding of all their needs and requirements. We accept that no processes or customers are 100% alike, and we have the willingness and skills to adapt to every project with motivation and new energy.
The best projects with the strongest effect are often achieved when the project is driven by a team of people from both sides, with all necessary competencies and managerial power to make things happen.
We understand that the supply of an analyser doesn’t bring any changes until the results are validated and the results are used in a new way – this is our commitment to focus on the customer effect in the short, medium and long term.
We believe in validation and trusted data
The consequences of analysers not providing the accuracy or precision you expected vary, but is never for free! The best-case scenario may be “just” a loss of profit, but if production is off it may also lead to a loss of customers and reputation, and event to the closing of production lines.
Production units are built larger than ever, with a high level of automation. Feeding automation models and process control algorithms with faulty sensor data may lead to severe loss of control and profit.
That is the core motivation behind our automated surveillance of hardware and optional application performance validation, which we have made an essential part of our AnalyticTrust digital universe.
AnalyticTrust makes is easy for you to be certain of the uncertainties!
Our customers are looking for analysers which are ready for the future. The future holds big-data and concepts like “industry 4.0,” which will only work if sensor data is validated and trusted.
Q-Interline is a family-owned company founded in 1996 by our CTO, Anders Larsen. Initially, the company was a value adding reseller organisation for a range of top brand suppliers of analysers and spectrometers.
In 2003 Q-Interline designed and introduced the first product in what later became the QPA series of on-line analysers. In 2004, the new partnership with ABB Bomem led to the introduction of the two at-line systems series, Focus and Flex, for a wide range of applications within the food, feed, dairy and agricultural segments, which were distributed in Europe through a new network of distributors.
In 2008, Q-Interline introduced the brand new maintenance-free Quant FT-NIR analyser. In addition, a new series of powerful accessories as well as a user friendly software package called InfraQuant was launched. This new technological leap, together with the new global distributor network, has brought the company to where we are today: a global player with installations in 39 countries around the world.
In 2010, Q-Interline moved to its present headquarters and innovation centre in Tølløse, located close to Copenhagen. Q-Interline was ISO9001 certified in 2012 and was re-certified in 2017.
Q-interline obtained its first sampling patent in 2013 and more patents have followed since.
In 2015, Q-Interline GmbH in Germany was founded in order to capture the substantial market for high-tech analysers in the food, feed, dairy and agricultural segments.
Anders Larsen teamed up with Martin Henriksen in 2017 as the new CEO and partner, with the goal of further developing market presence in Europe and North America.
In early 2017 the newly developed maintenance-free inline analyser system InSight Pro was introduced, replacing the old QPA on-line systems.
Later that year, Q-Interline was granted funding from the EU Horizon 2020 SME programme for the commercialisation of the InSight Pro. Since then, the InSight Pro analyser has been installed in the USA, Ireland, England, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Austria and Denmark. You can read more about the project here.
The patent for a revolutionary new liquid dairy product analyser was granted in 2018, hence the DairyQuant GO was introduced to the market with support from the Danish Market Maturation Fund (MMF) in 2019.
In early 2020, Q-Interline acquired our software supplier, AnalyticTrust, and merged the two companies, thereby creating a new Division for Digital Solutions within Q-Interline.
