Orthopedic Implant Inspection and Measurement

The Perfect Solution for Orthopedic Implant Inspection

There are many reasons why the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator is widely used by orthopedic implant manufacturers to inspect and measure medical implants and devices:

  • Automatically compare parts to their CAD data (no more overlays!)
  • With its patented CAD Auto-Align™ and CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ tools, the system can inspect and measure parts completely automatically!
  • Demonstrated accuracy down to +/-0.0001" in real-world applications, directly on the shop floor!
  • Eliminate operator subjectivity!
  • Much faster than traditional approaches.
  • Because the system doesn't require any programming, it is especially well adapted for small lots & quick part changeover.
  • Automatically collect measurements, statistics, images and other data for complete documentation.
  • The system is not limited to the camera's field-of-view; It can compare a part to its CAD data across the entire stage travel. So even large parts can be checked at high magnification, with very fine resolution.
  • With its extended optical depth-of-field and Auto-Focus tool, the system is perfectly suited to deal with the challenges of orthopedic implant inspection.
  • Different types of adapted computer-controlled LED illumination are available to eliminate glare and make defects stand out. The system works extremely well on both metal & plastic parts!
  • Automatically measure and display deviations from nominal and quickly identify out-of-tolerance areas.
