The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator is featured in August 2017’s Quality Magazine in an article titled “Digital Advancements for Shop Floor Inspection of Medical Devices.” The article discusses the difficulties in the measurement and inspection of medical parts, such as orthopedic implants and medical instruments, and the current solutions different types of VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators can offer to meet these challenges.
In this case study, Paradigm Precision (a large aerospace sub-contractor to GE, UT, Rolls Royce and many others) explains how they are using the VisionGauge® system to carry out 100% inspection of cooling holes on a wide range of complex 5-axis parts, including blades, vanes and heat shields.
They mention that they are achieving a repeatability of +/-0.0001″.
