Automating Optical Comparators at BMP

Everyone at Biomedical Polymers is thrilled about the addition of a new state-of-the-art automated digital measuring system. As a leading maker of plastic consumables for biomed graphic 1research and medical diagnostic labs, we are always looking for ways to improve our already high quality manufacturing processes.

In this case, our new automated system is attached to an existing optical comparator. As you may or may not know, an optical comparator is a device that allows a technician to inspect finished products for impurities. With the new automated system, we are able to pre-program parts and dimensions. This in turn allows our optical comparator to read each product and give it a pass/fail rating in less than 3 seconds! Before this update, this task took a significantly longer time as it was done manually.

Though our new automated digital measuring system is only a month old, we have already put it to good use. In fact, we are currently qualifying a new mold for a well-known biomed graphic 2laboratory industry client. As we become even more familiar with the technology, everyone at BMP believes that it will improve our internal quality control and data recording capabilities past their already high ratings.
