A solid industrial background, expertise in acoustics, magnetism, materials, TPE and Technical Rubber compounds and micro assembly are the cornerstones of Ortofon's technology platform.
Ortofon is ISO 13485 certified with a scope: Manufacturing of components in plastic, rubber and metal for the medical device industry and manufacturing of Bone Conductors.
Modern machinery combined with experienced operators
Production at Ortofon is automated and set up with purpose-built precision machines. Production is carried out by competent operators, so human craftsmanship is delivered with uniform industrial quality.
Our experienced operators and technicians operate and service the machines, including Arburg and Battenfeld MicroPower machines equipped for micro injection moulding, as well as high precision CNC milling and laser welding machines.
A set-up with entry control, quality systems, planning and validation forms the basis of this industrial system, ensuring repeatability and reproducibility in the manufacturing processes.

High Speed and micro-precision CNC milling
At Ortofon high-precision machining processes are integrated into the manufacturing processes.
High speed micro milling allows to obtain excellent geometric and dimensional tolerances.
4 axes machining centers are used for the high-precision machining of the most complex components.Thanks to a finishing process, we are able to obtain a perfect surface finish for the product in question.

Continuous Microtech innovation
We have developed an extensive global network of Suppliers and Technology partners with whom we exchange information, troubleshoot and solve problems, in order to constantly hone our skills and be able to address new challenges. The supplier portfolio has been developed over many years and is one of our most important assets.
We look at new technologies that are specifically product related, such as Selective Laser Melting (SLM) manufacturing technique. Our competences in magnetics, acoustics, simulation, materials and micro mechanical assembly put Ortofon in a unique position to add value to the Balanced Electromagnetics Separation Transducer (BEST)bone conductor design.

We apply new technologies that are specifically product related
Acoustics, materials, technology and micro-mechanics are key competences in the technological process of Ortofon.
Reflecting our extensive experience in industrial design and technological know-how, we have become the global leader in the manufacture and supply of phono cartridges. The first moving coil phono cartridge was developed in 1948, since then more than 300 different phono cartridges have been developed and manufactured.
We benefit from being established in Denmark, a country recognized for its strong tradition in acoustics and its wealth of other high-end manufacturers, who make hearing aids and acoustic measurement equipment, in addition to all aspects of high-end audio.
Ortofon has been awarded numerous distinctions for both sound quality and design throughout its extensive history.
