At Jesse Garant Metrology Center, we understand the importance of testing for critical medical and orthotic devices that cannot afford to fail

Our lab is equipped with a full suite of advanced imaging equipment for NDT and metrology, accommodating the diverse inspection requirements of complex medical devices. We have the greatest diversity of industrial computed tomography systems in North America, including an exclusive high-energy CT system for inspection of large medical devices or components. We also have multiple in-house industrial x-ray and 3D scanning systems.

Medical Device Testing using Industrial Computed Tomography Scanning

We provide an accurate and timely part inspection process customized to client needs at all stages of medical device manufacturing. Our versatile nondestructive testing systems accommodate a wide range of part sizes, complex shapes, and advanced materials. This includes 3D printed prototypes, cobalt alloy orthotics, dental braces and devices, and intricate multi-material assemblies made from ceramic, glass, plastic and/or other materials. Our CT services can also conduct wall thickness and porosity analyses for gel caps and pills.

Five Ways to Improve Quality Control within the Medical Industry:

Pre-production Inspection: 

Our industrial CT scanning services can drastically improve quality assurance of medical devices with precise internal inspection of preliminary parts and materials. This reduces guesswork and risks, while getting manufacturers to production faster. We ensure accurate first article metrology data for validating part geometries and fit and function of assemblies. 3D scanning is another option for validation of external dimensions.

Production Inspection: 

Production inspection with industrial CT scan confirms proper functioning of critical or implantable medical devices for must-run applications. We can conduct 100% inspection of all parts or at specific intervals to identify defects and validate dimensions before reaching their final destination.

Part Sorting: 

For large volume part sorting of medical devices and components, we offer industrial x-ray services that are repeatable, traceable, and customized to client needs. We provide definitive data for making qualified decisions on quarantine or recall parts, isolating suspect parts from otherwise good lots. Industrial CT is another option for lower volume lot inspection.

Failure Investigation: 

Industrial computed tomography is a non-contact NDT method that reveals internal defects like porosity and misalignment without altering original part conditions. Industrial CT is thus an ideal tool for failure analysis of complex, multi-material medical devices and components. Our CT inspection services are fast and accurate, saving time and costs by avoiding expensive destructive testing.

Reverse Engineering: 

Industrial computed tomography and 3D scanning are integral tools for rapid prototyping and iterative design with medical devices and orthotics. With our advanced imaging systems, we generate high-density metrology data for providing crucial design feedback and reverse engineering applications. Part to CAD and Part to Part comparisons are other available analyses.
