Confocal measurement of dental samples

The materials used in dental fillings are examined for surface deterioration and robustness to ensure that the materials are suitable to be used for dental procedures and examinations. To measure this deterioration, the KF-30 measurement system is introduced that uses non-contact confocal measurement sensors to detect the surfaces of different materials and generates a three-dimensional representation as output.  Bestech Australia provides confocalDT 2451 sensors from Micro-Epsilon that are used in this measuring system. These sensors are also used in research labs for measuring the chewing surfaces for dental materials and to analyse the resulting wear. A visual representation of the...

Fine positioning of a surgical microscope

Surgical Microscopes are used by surgeons to get a clear and perfect view of the operating area. The microscope has its optics mounted to long arms on a stand to enable the surgeons to position the microscope and give them more room to move while performing a surgery. The long arm needs to be adjusted at the pivot points continously to give the surgeon the desired view throughout the procedure. This is done using capaNCDT 6019 capacitive measuring system that supports calibration of the CSE05 sensor to two switching points. The capacitive measuring system measures the distance to the reference area reflecting...

Height measurement of Petri dishes

The Medical Industry heavily uses sensor technology to cope with the increasing demand of high quality medical technology based products, apparatus, plant automation and pharmaceuticals. For going through these operations, consistent quality control and compliance with narrow tolerances is reuqired. Sensors play a major role in attaining these targets. The inspection of the fill-level in the plates is performed with the help of a three-channel version of the capaNCDT6220 capacitive measurement system. This non-contact measuring system uses three sensors with measuring range of 4mm and can determine the fill-level over three tracks on the petri dish. For effective and accurate results,...

Quality control of medical tablet stamps and dies

Visual and automated inspection of press tool that are used in the production of tablets is a very difficult task because of the complexity of structure and the strongly reflecting surface of the stamps and dies. Yet, these tools are subject to a continous quality control due to the critically of the production task and strict safety guidelines. Using a measuring system that evaluates such complex equipment is required in this case. Confocal Sensor confocalDT 2451 along with an optical micrometer optoCONTROL 2600 is used to get highly precise measurement results. This measuring system is equipped with a USB interface and a...

Contact lens measurement

Contact lens manufacturers conduct various material tests on clear, flexible polymer samples to ensure better quality. During the test, the material samples are submerged in a saline solution for hydration. Measuring dimensions inside a saline solution when the material is stretched or heated is a very challenging task. To perform this type of measurement effectively, non-contact sensors are preferred. Bestech Australia provides special non-contact sensors to give accurate dimensional measurements. ThruBeam model ODC2600-40 sensors are used for this purpose with a dynamically adjustable threshold that allows the user to fine-tune the sensor enabling it to see the polymer sample’s edges...
