Balloon Visual Inspection System UpgradesInterface Catheter Solutions’ announces substantial upgrades to its new balloon visual inspection system that culminate to deliver significantly reduced cycle times. The system provides both visual inspection and dimensional measurements of medical balloons in a single operation to add consistency and accountability to the inspection process. Inspection includes classification and size of defects with pass/fail analysis based on user-selected criteria. The balloon visual inspection system operates with a sophisticated vision system and analysis program with an intuitive user interface. The Interface inspection system provides immediate detailed visual and data reporting used in both quality manufacturing inspection and research and development.

The balloon visual inspection system has enhanced pneumatic rotary air chucks for quick and easy loading and unloading of balloons and a tight, reliable seal. The new air chucks reduce cycle time inspection processing. Additional upgrades include higher pressure capability for pressures up to 13 atmospheres along with significantly improved pressure accuracy. New digital pressure output gauge provides improved pressure accuracy reliability.

A newly added feature to the balloon visual inspection system is an ionizing knife that blows static free air while rotating the balloon under pressure before each inspection process. The ionizing knife reduces particles thereby reducing potential false-negative testing results. The detailed visual reports provide operators with high resolution and magnified images to take the guesswork out of pass/fail inspections. The balloon visual inspection system can provide accurate measurements and images to confirm pass or fail inspections potentially increasing manufacturing yields. Reports are all traceable to the production lot and the inspector.
