The medical technology industry is a uniquely challenging space for manufacturers, with demanding regulatory requirements reinforcing demand for functionally flawless medical devices produced in absolutely hygienic conditions. Add to this the variety of sizes needed for every type of technology and the variety of challenging materials medical industry manufacturers now work with – not to mention the responsibility they have to patients around the world – and the industry’s exacting quality standards are clear.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence supplies metrology technologies and reporting solutions designed specifically to meet the high standards of medical technology companies. Ultra-high accuracy coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are used to inspect high-precision metal parts such as surgical supplies, while non-contact laser scanning and optical measurement techniques ensure the fast and accurate measurement of small or fragile parts, including highly-polished or malleable surfaces that are not suitable for tactile measurement. Our metrology software packages feature customisable reporting that enables manufacturers to meet regulatory demands, while CAD/CAM software helps design the complex tooling required to shape the freeform components that mimic the human body. With Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence quality support, medical technology businesses can help people enjoy a better quality of life.
