Inspection of Contoured Stents and Heart Valve Frames
Q vix Pivot is the outcome of Sensofar’s wide experience in stent inspection technologies, taking a leap forward in the inspection of flared and contoured devices and solving the challenge of inspecting non-cylindrical geometries.
Q vix Pivot gives the ability to evaluate the shape-setting process from the measured profile of the devices. Measuring the different diameters along the profile and the angles within the device’s shape can help to keep the shape-setting process under control.
Let us do the hard job
While the inspection of cylindrical stents is an easier task, inspecting non-cylindrical geometries like those of flared stents or contoured heart valve frames is a challenge that usually involves complex programming.
Q vix Pivot solves this challenge by automatically detecting the shape of the stent being inspected and computing the inspection angles in which the sensor needs to move to acquire an entirely focused image.
Dimensional measurement in contoured structures
Q vix Pivot’s powerful SensoINSPECT software can automatically find the positions for automatic measurements of strut width in the completely focused image that has been acquired, providing immediate and accurate results.
