Lumetrics Inc. has begun shipment of its LumetriScan fully automated noncontact thickness measurement system for the medical industry. The LumetriScan 360 can be used on medical tubing up to 36 in. long, and on balloons of almost any size. The system is intended to reduce inspection and scrap costs, improve yields and satisfy FDA requirements. Data obtained from the system ensures higher quality and more consistent products and improves safety, according to the company. The system allows a product to be rotated 360º and scans the length of an item, mapping the thickness of the entire body. The technique can be used to take a series of measurements along the length of a medical balloon at multiple pressures.
