CGI Metrology Technology
CGI' innovative cross sectional scanning technology allows you to view your injection molded connector or medical device parts as never before. We take your part, pot it in a two-part urethane and then machine down ultra thin mold and part layers. Every time we remove an ultra thin layer, we scan the surface with a high-resolution camera. Then repeat the process until the entire part is digitized.
This metrology procedure generates a 3D point cloud of the entire part internally as well as externally. The point cloud can then be imported into software allowing a direct comparison of the point cloud to a CAD model. This type of comparison, called 3D color mapping, enables you to easily see how closely the injection molded part compares to the intended design. The benefit: a better way to shorten tool qualification, inspect tooling on routine basis or identify potential form-fit and function issues. Additionally, the point cloud can also be measured directly using CGI's proprietary Spec.Check software. This system empowers users to create virtual cross sections anywhere in the point cloud of an injection molded connector or medical part, and then utilize probe boxes to create first article inspection measurement templates.

Small, and often complex, medical parts to be inspected are placed on a set-up frame within a standard mold. Encase-it potting material covers and fills the part. Once the mold is filled, a potting station ensures that encase-it fills all the internal and external features of the part.
