NEW PARTNER: QUANERGY
We are proud to announce the partnership with company QUANERGY, producer of high-performance AI-powered LiDAR platforms. Milexia selected Quanergy due to the unique technology of the solid state product and high level performances of the electro-mechanics device.
LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a time-of-flight sensing technology that pulses low-power, eye-safe lasers and measures the time it takes for the laser to complete a round trip between the sensor and a target. The resulting aggregate data are used to generate a 3D point cloud image, providing both spatial location and depth information to identify, classify, and track moving objects.
- Industry-Leading LiDAR Solutions As a leading LiDAR platform provider, Quanergy offers a comprehensive product portfolio including hardware sensors and perception software. The sensing capabilities include both 3D mechanical LiDAR and 100% solid state LiDAR. Together, hardware and AI-Powered smart perception software technologies are combined to create a unique Quanergy Flow Management Platform™ to enable sophisticated solutions for industries such as smart city, smart space, security, and industrial automation.
- Mechanical LiDAR Sensors M Series high-performance LiDAR sensors are the leading mechanical LiDAR for mapping, security, and smart city and smart space applications. Featuring industry-leading accuracy and point cloud density, M Series LiDAR sensors also offer long range coverage and real-time 3D perception.
- Solid State LiDAR Sensors S Series sensors are true 100% solid state LiDAR based on industry-first Optical Phased Array (OPA) technology. With electronic beam steering and no moving parts, these robust, ultra-reliable LiDAR sensors are immune to vibration and provide more than 100,000 hours mean time between failure (MTBF). In addition, the affordable, scalable CMOS silicon process enables extremely cost- effective at mass production.
- Flow Management Platform Quanergy’s 3D AI-Powered LiDAR Flow Management technology provides a modular, scalable and advanced perception platform to enable real-time analysis for people counting, object detection, classification, tracking and more. Quanergy’s Flow Management™ platform consists of three different products, M series with QORTEX DTC™ (Detect, Track, Classify), S3-2 with QORTEX™ Access Control, S3-2 with QORTEX™ People Counter. Together, they are designed to solve a wide range of applications in retail, airports, public venues, commercial and government buildings, and industrial facilities.
COVID-19 INFORMATION - UPDATE 20TH APRIL
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, Milexia Italia has done everything possible to preserve the health of our workers and the whole community. Following the government's provisions, we communicate that we have implemented the following actions to combat and contain the contagion:

If you wish to write to us on this topic, email@example.com
- The implementation of smart working
- Daily sanitization of offices and warehouses
Aware of our role within the production chains considered strategic, in particular in the field of defense and space, and as communicated to the prefect of Milan, we remain open and operational with limited staff in the main Milan office and in the warehouse. There will be no impact on our operations and on the products/services offered to our customers.
We are constantly in contact with our suppliers in order to guarantee the continuity of supplies and we are committed to keeping our customers informed of any difficulties that may arise in the supply chain.
Thanks for the support and wishing a speedy recovery to the whole system, we send our regards.
Dear Valuable Partners,
As you know the Covid-19 is continuing to expand its footprint around many countries and specifically in Europe.
Milexia is monitoring this situation very carefully and we are taking appropriate steps to safeguard our employees. Securing our supply chain is a priority for us. We are in contact with all our suppliers that can be affected by some work/transport restrictions.
In regards to that situation, some additional lead time for delivery of our products may be encountered.
Milexia is evaluating the exact impact on its supply chain and will keep you informed of any evolution of the situation.
China’s production is restarting gradually, nevertheless end to end logistic is still not at the level before crisis.
The business continuity plan of Milexia has been organized and all its employees are mobilized to offer the same quality service as in normal times.
