P4K: Profile Metrology System

The Glebar P4K Gauging System is the world’s fastest and most accurate profile metrology system available for long parts or multiple short parts. It is the industry standard for measuring medical guidewires. It can scan multiple single parts or one long part in one operation. Inspectors simply clamp the part in the fixture and in one mouse click begin scanning. The simple user interface allows inspectors to quickly determine product quality on the manufacturing floor. Quality managers are provided with enough analysis data and traceability to comply with even the most stringent quality requirements. For companies with multiple facilities, the available SQL version connects to the intranet, centralizing data measurements and templates across plants. Common applications include medical guidewires, arthroscopic shavers, and fasteners.
