Maximum precision is the top priority in the production of all types of orthopedic and traumatological implants. Modern implants usually have complex geometries with steep flanks and sometimes high-gloss surfaces. This increasingly presents manufacturers of medical components with challenges in production and in the necessary quality assurance. In addition to roughness measurement, the measurement of GD&T features is playing an increasingly important role. This is exactly where optical 3D metrology comes in as a quality assurance tool.
