Dimensional metrology to increase safety of medical devices, implants and pharmaceutics

High-resolution optical 3D metrology is indispensable in the manufacture and quality assurance process of instruments, implants and other medical devices. 

With only one sensor, dimension, position, shape & roughness can be measured. 

Optical 3D metrology measures:

  • non-destructive
  • traceable
  • smooth + highly polished surfaces

Check out the following material to find out more details on optical 3D measurement solutions used in all stages of the manufacturing process of medical devices

Measurement Report | High-gloss Knee Implant

Quality Assurance of Orthopedic Implants 

The highest possible precision is the top priority in the manufacture of orthopedic and traumatological implants of all kinds. Modern implants usually have complex geometries with steep flanks and sometimes high-gloss surfaces, which increasingly presents manufacturers with challenges in production and the necessary quality assurance. This is exactly where optical 3D measurement technology comes in as a quality assurance instrumentl.

In this webinar you will learn more about high-resolution form and roughness measurement of surgical instruments like drills and cutters, implants and other medical devices. 


User Case Story | Uhlmann 

Optical Metrology in Pharmaceutical Packaging 

Product safety is particularly important in the production of pharmaceutical packaging and is subject to stringent requirements. UHLMANN – a German expert in the field of pharmaceutical packaging – use Bruker Alicona to verify the quality of machine components, thus gaining knowledge on the reproducibility of manufacturing processes.
