At Jesse Garant Metrology Center, we understand the importance of CT Scanning & X-Ray inspection for critical orthopedics and medical 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.
We provide an accurate and timely part inspection process customized to client needs at all stages of medical device manufacturing. Our versatile imaging systems accommodate a wide range of part sizes, complex shapes, and advanced materials. This includes 3D printed parts, cobalt alloy orthopedics, prosthetics, dental braces, implantable devices, gel caps, intricate multi-material assemblies made from ceramic, glass, plastic, and/or other materials.
Four 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.
