Metrology for Orthopaedics Manufacturing and R&D

Ultraprecision, Non-Contact Metrology for Orthopaedics

Increasing the longevity of Orthopaedic implants while reducing manufacturing cost contributes to the health and wellbeing of patients with arthritis and related conditions.

We help orthopaedic manufacturers make better implants with metrology that supports early-stage R&D all the way to final quality control at the end of the production line.

Non-contact inspection preserves the often delicate surfaces used on implants and enables a step-change in measurement speed.

Through the use of high-speed and high-precision metrology, you can speed up the research, development and time to market of new orthopaedic designs.

Quality Control for the Manufacture of Orthopaedic Joints

With the continuing drive towards tighter tolerances and an industry trend towards 10% GR&R while expecting high throughput and robustness, OmniLux CMMs guarantee excellent return on your investment.

Metrology in the Production Cell

Instead of moving product into the metrology lab for inspection, our systems can operate on the shop floor, bringing metrology room performance to the production cell. Using an OmniLux optical CMM reduces scrap within your manufacturing process. 

Ready for Industry 4.0

With an optional interface to a robot and integration into your 21 CFR Part 11 compliant database, our OmniLux CMMs are ready to improve your process control and efficiency.

Research & Development

Manufacturers of artificial joints and researchers are looking at ways to increase the longevity of implants and give patients a greater quality of life for longer. 

High-resolution retrieval and simulator studies on hip and knee joints are an important tool for understanding what leads to implant failure and what extends their lifespan. 

The proven OmniLux optical CMMs have the capability to provide fast, high-resolution measurements of the bearing surfaces without contacting the delicate joint interface, therefore preserving valuable evidence during the measurement. A measurement that would take many hours with conventional, touch probe technology can now be completed in a few minutes. 

Our analysis software provides all the tools needed to measure linear and volumetric wear, understand component deformation, visualise your measurement results and report on your research with
never-before-seen detail.
