Polymermedics modernized the metrology capabilities through implementing optical and sensor techniques. This optimization resulted in a significant improvement of quality checks which are necessary for the products we manufacture. The new precision measurement will also prove priceless for monitoring the quality of micro moulded parts.
Our manufacturing innovations at Polymermedics have made a sufficient contribution to metrology services in the UK. Recently, we have modernized our metrology lab, delivering far more stringent quality control on the production of the plastic component parts.
The reliability of our manufacturing is a must. Lives often depend on the medical and pharmaceutical components that we produce. Trustworthiness is a key for our business, and so we have worked hard toward building the reputation by strictly following each products’ specifications.
“Trustworthiness is a key for our business”
Along with that, we applied additional atmospheric controls that are used to carefully regulate the temperature and modify the humidity in the lab, as the quality team carry out micron-level measurements using optical and probe sensing techniques. We are fully aware of the disastrous danger that a tiny error may cause. To avoid any fatal mistakes, we’ve decided to improve our metrology services.
The move was prompted by an order from a world-class medical manufacturer, specifying precisely-fitting component parts to create a new device — and special fixtures were created by Verus UK to allow both sides of some parts to be scanned without removing them from the machine.
This is a revolutionary change; it means that we can submit other products and obtain the same level of scrutiny for the quality control. This brings our metrology services to obtaining better reliability and consistent moulding data.

Besides, the new high precision quality control proves priceless in monitoring the quality of micromoulded parts. When manufacturing micro parts, high precision is a must for a defect-free product, which is why we at Polymermedics conduct regular meticulous quality checks. Optical and sensor metrology is just one of the many changes that our team implemented.
