Lumetrics is the leader in online tubing thickness measurement systems for the ophthalmic, glass, and medical device market. Our engineering team has developed a new fixture that eliminates the problems of line sensitivity that give all online systems trouble. The new fixturing provides for easy loading and accommodates line changeovers to different size tubing. Water is the enemy of all hydrophilic tubing production, and the OptiGauge provides the crucial inner diameter, outter diameter, and wall thickness readings that customers require.
Metal stents have been available since 1988. Through the 1990’s, stents went through numerous iterations, incorporating different metals and coatings. As the medical products industry moved through the 2000’s, the use of bioresorbable stents became the newest innovation. And, it is a tremendous innovation.
The OptiGauge II is an ideal non-contact thickness measurement system for companies looking to move away from traditional contact measurement systems. It is non-destructive and objective, leaving no margin for operator error. It offers customers extraordinary flexibility in a measurement system. This user-friendly system delivers reliability and sub-micron accuracy so vital to today’s most advanced industries. OptiGauge II can be particularly useful in in Quality, R&D labs, and production floors because it can improve yields, reduce costs, increase quality, and meet compliance requirements.

One of the most prevalent measurement devices in a medical balloon or catheter manufacturing facility is the micrometer gauge. It is simple and inexpensive. But, this measurement technique is subject to a high degree of operator variability. Another limitation is that it measures total thickness only, and not the actual individual wall thickness. Furthermore, a micrometer compresses the measured part, and must, by design, come into contact with the material. The micrometer does not provide engineers with the precise and detailed information they need to develop and improve production processes. What other issues are there? Read More
