Medical Fasteners

Medical Fasteners components InspectionMectron’s High Speed Systems provides inspection of medical fasteners and cylindrical components that are manufactured with precision tolerances.

Mectron provides high speed inspection systems by utilizing multiple methods specifically designed for the most critical details of any medical device components or fasteners. The ‟Qualifier” uses Mectron’s patented lasers for high speed gauging and inspection for an unlimited variety of medical products in a wide range of materials. Utilizing MECTRON’S patented laser array, the ‟Qualifier” provides 360° inspection of each piece, displays its dimensions on the computer touch screen, and automatically inspects the part features and measurements.

The ‟Qualifier” automatically discards any parts that do not meet the customer’s specifications such as deformed, damaged, missing and damaged knurls, thread defects (spiral, damaged, roll-ups, etc.), feature deviations, and foreign material. Parts that pose special challenges due to part orientation from piece to piece can be inspected and gauged utilizing the ‟Qualifier’s” extensive software capabilities.

In additMedical1ion to laser technology, Mectron utilizes MI9000 Magnetic Imagery™, an advanced eddy current technique which provides the most complete on-the-fly metallurgical inspection available on the market today. The instrument develops a magnetic image of each part as it passes through the ‟Qualifier” to create the part’s unique signature. This full signature provides the opportunity to detect the most critical metallurgical defects such as cracks, material mixes, conductive plating, and hardness by a visual deviation in the magnetic image displayed. Acceptable limits can be quickly defined using the touch screen programming capabilities.

The addition of vision inspection in either single or multiple CCD camera configurations to any Mectron System provides capabilities to check for open burst cracks, recess inspection and through –hole applications. The combination of Mectron’s 360° laser array, Magnetic Imagery™ eddy current and vision technologies provides the end user with the most advanced inspection machine available in the market today at speeds up to 500ppm.
