Economic, fast and high-precision analysis of surfaces
CompaMed 2012: NanoFocus AG exhibits award-winning 3D surface measurement technology for product development and quality control
In medical technology, a precise knowledge of the surface characteristics of components is indispensable. Surfaces structures in the micrometer and nanometer dimension on nearly all types of surfaces can determined with the optical 3D measurement technology of NanoFocus. From 14 to 16 November 2012, NanoFocus exhibits custom-fit measurement solutions for the medical technology industry at CompaMed in Düsseldorf, Germany in hall 8a/ booth H23.3.
The measurement systems of NanoFocus are used by numerous manufacturers in medical technology where they make a decisive contribution to the development of new products, the optimization of production methods and to reliable quality assurance. Possible measurement tasks range from wear analyses of dental replica, roughness measurements of joint implants, form precision of blood sensors and micro fluidic modules to the inspection of stents.
In March 2012, the µsurf-technology of NanoFocus was awarded with the MEDTEC EMDT Innovations Awards for its contribution to innovations in medical technology. The excellent properties of the measurement systems gave rise to the award: fast measurement speed, high optical resolution as well as comprehensive measurement reports generated automatically by the NanoFocus measurement software. The flexible all-round solutions are profitable particularly in automated application.
The non-contact measuring method produces rich-in-depth images in the sub-micrometer level and measurements with high repeat accuracy. The systems perform measurements of tribology, micro-geometry, micro- and nano-volume, topography and layer thickness of almost all surfaces. Measurement data conforming to DIN EN ISO standards is available for further evaluation after only a few seconds. This makes NanoFocus metrology solutions the ideal tool for quality assurance and process control in industrial production and in laboratory use.
