Testing system, dental technology “tooth root canal drills”

Portfolio: Measurement and Test Engineering
Industries: Medical Engineering


VDW Munich commissioned HEITEC to develop and build a testing system for the quality control of dental products that are packaged in cassettes and blister packs.


High standards of quality are guaranteed in the different production steps by total process control using camera systems with a cycle time of 2.5 seconds per cassette. This ensures that both customer and regulatory requirements are met. The system checks the size, diameter, shape, and color of the plastic handles using red transmitted light from below and white light from above with a resolution of 1 µm and a measuring accuracy of 5 µm. HEITEC developed the mechanics, automation technology, and image processing. HEITEC performed the validation according to the requirements of the medical industry and the regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
