Metal stents have been available since 1988. Through the 1990’s, stents went through numerous iterations, incorporating different metals and coatings. As the medical products industry moved through the 2000’s, the use of bioresorbable stents became the newest innovation. And, it is a tremendous innovation. Through the use of bioresorbable stents, physicians are able to reduce… Read more »

It is non-destructive and objective, leaving no margin for operator error. It offers customers extraordinary flexibility in a measurement system. This user-friendly system delivers reliability and sub-micron accuracy so vital to today’s most advanced… Read more »
Human flesh is opaque. As any good dictionary will tell you, that means it has the quality of “not transmitting light; being impenetrable to sight.” Well, forget that: scientists now can use light to see inside objects that were traditionally off-limits to the human eye—including our bodies. Of course it’s already possible to use X-rays,… Read more »
Should using a micrometer and taking a double wall thickness be the industry standard for medical balloon thickness measurement? No, it shouldn’t. Here’s why.
Sometimes the simplest things cause the biggest problems, especially when it comes to adhesive thickness measurement. Whether it’s tablet computers, cell phones, medical devices, or other products, the thickness of an adhesive layer can be critical. Read more.
Can you measure a Paracin straw as it’s being extruded? Yes. You can, and from two feet away. Read More
Lumetrics applies their technology to a wide variety of thickness measurement applications. Here are 7 things we can measure: 1) Absorbable Stents – Read a great article on how a New Standard Focuses on Testing of Absorbable Stents 2. Food Packaging Thickness Measurement Applications– We can make sure your food packaging is of the highest quality, meets… Read more »
From our file of “thickness measurement” challenges comes cell phone glass and its structure. It’s very easy for the OptiGauge™ to measure multiple layers of a product, but how does an engineer know what is good or bad? Protective film, adhesive, outer glass- no problem. We’re often asked to measure the structure, especially the inner… Read more »
A few Lumetrics engineers were sitting around talking about what sorts of things we have measured and what interesting, or ordinary, things we can measure the thickness of. So, as we are asked to make thickness measurements of different objects, or as we think of things that would be fun to measure, we’ll be bringing them to you. Next… Read more »
