Sapphire inspection mandrels allow easier defect detection and safer inspection.

Medical Component Specialists of Bellingham, Massachusetts continues to expand capabilities with Stent Inspection Mandrels made from Sapphire. This application, for ESI/Visicon Inspection Systems and other similar equipment, is optimized for maximum safe production leading to higher stent inspection throughput.

Engineered to reflect optimum light, this process allows for easier defect detection. It’s also a safer inspection. The mandrels are smoother to prevent unintended damage to stents resulting in less downtime due to damage.

Our sapphire mandrels are stronger than standard ceramic mandrels so they break less frequently and are scratch resistant.” – James Moore, President, Medical Component Specialists
