White Light Interferometry Applications Advance Capabilities and Precision
Over the past several years, exciting advancements have been made in the market for non-contact, light-based measurements for medical implants such as balloons and catheters. Emerging from the research and development in this area are more precise, automated, and standardized methods which use white light interferometry technology to overcome the limitations of the conventional micrometer gauge used for these purposes.
The ability to accurately measure the thickness of silicone coatings is key to the implant manufacturing process. Whether dip or spray coating methods are used the OptiGauge II can measure the additive thickness in process without the need for destructive testing.
