Quality assurance is vital for accurate production of patient-specific joints and prostheses, therefore Baltic Orthoservice uses a multi-sensor CMM and laser scanner in conjunction with a micro-CT system. The multi-sensor CMM is used for fast surface and screw hole inspection of the 3D-printed implants. The XT H 225 CT system is used to guarantee internal structure quality and geometrical accuracy between CAD implant model and manufactured implant. The combination of these technologies enables Baltic Orthoservice to achieve the best accuracy and highest quality for a wide variety of medical devices.
The measuring area of the production plant for the VW Crafter, newly built in the Polish town of Września, is a model for future-oriented technology. The measuring stations equipped with optical and tactile measuring systems contribute to this, as well as the driverless transport plates, which transport all kinds of body parts and their measuring…
One of the leading metrology and manufacturing solution specialists, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence launched its Composite Inspection System for the ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner (SI). Based on new Apodius 3D technology, this combined hardware and software application package offers advanced inspection and analysis of lightweight carbon-fibre components at an unprecedented level of speed and detail.
The REVO multi-sensor system is one of Renishaw’s flagship products and enables CMM users to perform 5-axis measurement on a 3-axis co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM). It measures 1000s of points/sec and operates at speeds up to 500 mm/s. As the head is much lighter and more dynamic than the CMM, it is able to quickly follow changes in the part geometry without introducing harmful dynamic errors.
Comprehensive quality monitoring is becoming increasingly important for many OEMs and automotive suppliers. This especially true for heat treatment processes, as they have a major influence on the stability of important parts within the automobile. With this in mind, the induction specialists at eldec are intensifying their commitment to the quality monitoring of induction hardening machines: “eldec Quality Control” is proof of that and includes an entire package of new modules designed to optimize process reliability. The components build on and complement one another, and together, they guarantee customers an extensively monitored hardening process.
