Inspection & Measurement of Othopedic Implants

The Ideal Solution for Orthopedic Implant Inspection (including knees, hips, plates, shoulders, and many more)

There are many reasons why the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator is employed by the manufacturers of orthopedic implants to inspect and measure the medical implants and devices they produce:

  • Compare products directly to their CAD data, completely automatically (no more overlays or Mylars!)
  • VisionGauge®'s patented CAD Auto-Align™ and CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ tools are easy to use to automatically inspect and measure parts, and they produce very high-accuracy results.
  • Demonstrated accuracy down to +/-0.0001" in real-world applications, right on the shop floor!
  • VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators are proven faster and allow for significant gains in throughput compared to traditional comparators.
  • 100% consistent results between users - No more operator-to-operator variation!
  • Automated programs can be stored and recalled per part as needed or the system can be used in manual mode - either way, the system is especially well suited for inspecting small lots with rapid part changeover.
  • The systems provide multiple options for complete documentation and reporting of statistics, measurements, images, and other data.
  • The system's extended optical depth-of-field and Auto-Focus tool easily overcome the difficulties of orthopedic implant inspection.
  • Make defects truly stand out and entirely remove glare with multiple options for adapted computer-controlled LED illumination. VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators produce stunning results on both metal and plastic parts!
  • Measure and display deviations from nominal completely automatically:  Quickly and easily locate areas that are outside of tolerance.
  • VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators are not limited to performing inspections only in the camera's field-of-view:  A part can be compared to its CAD/DXF data across the entire stage travel. Check large and long parts at high magnification and very fine resolution with ease.
