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.
Comprehensive quality monitoring is becoming increasingly important for many OEMs and automotive suppliers.

The components build on and complement one another, and together, they guarantee customers an extensively monitored hardening process.
