Six Micron Measurement System

Manufacturers of precision medical components such as coated stents, balloons, and catheters require diligent quality control to ensure uniform thickness of these products. The DI-6 OptiGauge, a non-contact optical measurement system, can gauge coatings and walls down to six microns thick. The system employs super luminescent infrared technology that gives manufacturers a way to quickly and non-destructively measure products on the production line or in the QA laboratory with minimum handling. The automatic tubing and balloon measurement system automates the measurement process and provides wall thickness, ID, OD, ovality, and concentricity data for single piece or batch inspection.
