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.
