Medical MIM/PIM

Quality Inspection of Medical Device Components

Nowhere like the medical device manufacturing industry is the potential liability of shipping a defective part as catastrophic to you, your medical partners, and patients. Non-Destructive Test Resonant Acoustic Method (NDT-RAM™) inspection is designed to help you manufacture 100% fully inspected metal injection molded or cast component parts, giving you assurance in the integrity of your product and performance.  Learn more about NDT-RAM

Typical Medical Parts

NDT Medical MIM Parts

In metal injected molded (MIM) or powdered metal injection molded (PIM) parts, NDT-RAM detects variances such as cracks, voids, porosity, missing features and missing manufacturing processes. The entire procedure typically occurs at three seconds per part, allowing for efficient quality assurance. Your performance is guarded, your liability is limited and your reputation in the industry grows. As a contributor to state-of-the-art innovative quality inspection, The Modal Shop is a member of the Metal Powder Industry Federation.

Typical Flaws
• Cracks, chips and holes
• Porosity
• Missing features
• Variations in hardness
• Bonding, welding or brazing failures
• Missing machining or heat-treating processes

The NDT Drop Test Fixture (NDT-DTF) allows 100% quality inspection testing of small parts, such as medical device components. The Drop Test Fixture automates easily with components such as bowl feeders or vibratory tables. The Drop Test Fixture offers manufacturers of small metal MIM or PIM parts the benefits of using NDT-RAM technology:

Speed - three seconds per part, typical*
Versatility - multiple part numbers can be used on a single system
Ease of use - no part preparation is needed for testing
Objectiveness - no human interpretation is necessary, a simple pass/fail result is returned by the NDT-RAM system and parts are automatically sorted via a PLC controlled stepper motor

*Part throughput rate dependent upon part size, belt size, data acquisition setup parameters, and other part handling requirements
