T

he complex geometries of prosthetics, implants, and specialty medical screws can be measured using typical measurement equipment with only limited success. Prosthetics and implants are becoming more and more complex and delicate. That’s why Stuckenbrock Medizintechnik , in Tuttlingen, Germany, maintains a high level of technology. To be able to produce and inspect very tight tolerances, equipment must meet very high specifications.

(Werth Messtechnik: Old Saybrook, Connecticut) -- The Werth Inspector FQ is an extremely fast measuring machine with linear drives. Positioning speed is up to 1,000 meters/second with acceleration speed of 10 meters/second2. It comes standard with zoom optics and can be outfitted with additional sensors such as touch probes and laser scanning. For even faster utilization it can be used in the “Measure OnTheFly” mode, capturing measurement data while the machine remains in constant high-speed motion.
