Measurement of Bioresorbable Stents

Posted December 15, 2015 by Kristin

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.

New OptiGauge product introduced: OptiGauge II

Posted July 27, 2015 by Kristin

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.  View the press release on our new product announcement!

How We Can Use Light to See Inside the Human Body (Gizmodo)

Posted March 05, 2015 by Kristin

Human flesh is opaque. As any good dictionary will tell you, that means it has the quality of "not transmitting light; being impenetrable to sight." Well, forget that: scientists now can use light to see inside objects that were traditionally off-limits to the human eye—including our bodies.

Tested Samples: Cell Phone Thickness Measurement

Posted February 26, 2014 by Kristin

From our file of "thickness measurement" challenges comes cell phone glass and its structure.  It's very easy for the OptiGauge™ to measure multiple layers of a product, but how does an engineer know what is good or bad?  Protective film, adhesive, outer glass- no problem.  We're often asked to measure the structure, especially the inner layers, and we do that very well!

Tested Samples: Rock salt thickness measurement

Posted February 26, 2014 by Kristin

A few Lumetrics engineers were sitting around talking about what sorts of things we have measured and what interesting, or ordinary, things we can measure the thickness of. So, as we are asked to make thickness measurements of different objects, or as we think of things that would be fun to measure, we'll be bringing them to you.  Next up- rock salt! Read More
