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 required. Sensors play a major role in attaining these targets.
Bestech Australia offers sensors from Micro-Epsilon for providing high precision measurements in a wide range of challenging tasks, hence making the medical products and devices safer and more effective.
- Confocal chromatic sensors
- Color sensors
- Draw wire displacement sensors
- Capacitive sensors
- Optical micrometer
Height measurement of Petri dishes
In mirobiology, analysis of agar plates is done using cell cultures. For performing this, liquid agar-agar is filled in petri dishes made of plastic, in which the liquid hardens to form a gel-based structure. In order to evaluate the cell colony cultivated on the plate, the petri dish should be consistently kept as high as possible.
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.
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.
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.
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.
