News Release



ROCHESTER, N.Y., January 28, 2011- Lumetrics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of world-class precision thickness measurement technology, will showcase its newest innovation, the LumetriScan 360 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing West tradeshow held in Anaheim, California at the Anaheim Convention Center, February 8-10.

Lumetrics has been selected to be featured in a prestigious series of Innovation Brief Presentations at the trade show.  John Hart, president of Lumetrics, Inc., will be presenting the LumetriScan detail at the conference’s Innovation Briefs at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 10, 2011 in the Innovation Theater 1, booth 639.

Hart will be discussing advances in balloon catheter measurement and will highlight the LumetriScan 360 system, a fully automated, non-contact thickness measurement gauge for long-length medical tubing and balloons up to 36 inches in length.  With the data derived from LumetriScan 360 you can achieve higher quality products, reduce costs and inspection time, and ultimately reduce risk and improve customer satisfaction. The system simultaneously measures inside diameter, outside diameter, wall thickness, concentricity, and ovality of medical devices. It can be installed at a production line or used in the QA lab post production. LumetriScan 360 has the capability to measure at a rate of 50 times per second with an accuracy of 1/10th of a micron.  Traditional inspection methods consist of razor blades, microscopes, pin gauges, and micrometers which are being replaced by objective, non-desctructive, operator independent systems like LumetriScan, tailored to today’s complex medical devices.

Companies interested in the LumetriScan and other products as solutions for their thickness measurement needs should visit the Lumetrics’ booth (#1948) for a demonstration.
