Our New Automated PTCA and PTA Balloon Measurement System
IMSTec is proud to announce our new automated PTCA and PTA Balloon Measurement System, BMS, for catheter development and manufacturing lines. Technology and design provide precision and optimization by combining three normally manual operations into one quick automated operation. These operations include profile measurements, contact free wall thickness measurements, and defect review inspection and analysis. The operator only has to insert the balloon and start the recipe. A simple pass\fail disposition is provided or a detailed result analysis including balloon and shaft outer diameters, cone angles, and balloon wall thicknesses are displayed on the balloon scans and in the result table. In addition, the operator has a defect review feature where defects can be classified and marked on the balloon images.
The BMS options include a contact free balloon wall thickness measurement, a high pressure for automated compliance testing, and special balloon shape metrology.
