Medical Tubing Measurement: Wall Thickness, ID, OD
Lumetrics understands the stringent manufacturing requirements of medical device manufacturers who must produce tubing with consistent, precise wall thickness, inside diameter (ID), outside diameter (OD), concentricity, and ovality. Accurate measurement is critical to product quality—and safe patient care. In light of new FDA regulations, manufacturers are looking for data integrity from a real-time medical tubing measurement system that’s easy to integrate with their manufacturing process. Because of different materials, especially hydrophilic, and processes, many customers need measurement methods that don't include ultrasound and water baths. Lumetrics provides a single measurement gauge that provides all the critical dimensions without contact and without water.
The LumetriScan® Tubing Monitor System is based on proven OptiGauge® non-contact time domain interferometric technology to measure wall thickness, inner diameter, outside diameter in the same place at the same time. The Lumetriscan Tubing Monitor is the industry leading solution to provide R&D, production, and quality personnel a tool to improve yields, reduce costs, and provide data collection to meet compliance requirements.
Our OptiGauge II and OptiGauge MLS technology provides optical, non-contact medical tubing and catheter thickness measurement for dimensional testing of all types of extruded tubing products. You can install the system on your production line for real-time inspection of silicone, plastic, or glass tubing, or in your QA lab for accurate thickness measurement of tubing samples.
Our LumetriScan 360 provides advanced catheter measurement with consistent, NIST traceable, real-time measurement in the production process. It simplifies the process, reduces user error, saves time, money, and waste—all while meeting the new, stringent criteria for medical tubing and catheter manufacturing that the FDA requires.
