Medical Device Inspection - Plastic Mouldings

We have executed multiple medical device inspection projects including the inspection of the component parts and assemblies for medical devices used for drug delivery.  One system was for the inspection of critical dimensions, key quality features and the correct assembly of a multi component plastic medical device.  For this a PC based Cognex vision system was used, this in turn interfaced to synTI® – our regulatory compliant ‘front end’ for vision inspection projects.  The system measured critical dimensions, checked for the presence and alignment of critical parts of the moulding, checked that the assembly machine had located the components in the device correctly and checked that the component printing had occurred correctly.  The system provides real time feedback to the machine to enable the rejection of a faulty item (to prevent the further addition of value) together with real time process improvement data to the operators.
