What is it about?

An automated inspection of stent manufacturing is developed and applied to acquire, process, and analyze the image data of stents using a line-scan camera and automated multi-axes scan mechanics to acquire the image data during the scanning process.

Why is it important?

he system generates a large, highly detailed image of the entire stent pattern in a few seconds (typically 20 s and the error detection in 10 to 15 s). Manufacturers of stents can benefit greatly from this new technology, which suits the particular inspection needs of the 100% quality requirement of stent production.


The technology continues to evolve and take advantage of the latest developments in the growing field of digital optics, imaging, and computer capabilities.
