PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

Our customer needed a fixture that would allow them to assess the efficacy of a cauterizing procedure for medical devices. To do this, the fixture needed to provide means of thermal imaging, which required a substantial temperature differential between the test specimen and the background. The fixture also needed to accommodate devices from multiple product families.

An IR camera was used to acquire the thermal images. To create the temperature differential (min 30 deg F) an array of Peltier thermo

electric coolers were installed on a flat black Aluminum plate which sat behind the specimen. A universal mounting plate was designed that would accept device specific holders which positioned the different surgical instruments. Horizontal and vertical rail and carriage systems were integrated to allow a large range of motion for the camera, effectively allowing its position to be changed on the fly for different instruments. Finally, a counter-balanced spring system was installed to negate the weight of the IR camera and allow technicians to raise and lower it easily on the vertical rail.
