Taymer BX1100 Braid Inspector

Braid Inspector

Taymer’s braid inspector (BX1100) is a professional measurement of braid density, also known as pick count or picks per inch (PPI) for braided catheters, medical catheters, stents, cables, and other braided products for quality assurance and reliable automated production.
The braid inspector uses custom-designed lighting, digital imaging to enable real-time inspection. The digital inspection images are enhanced, magnified and displayed on a monitor to visually confirm the braids, target position and see any potential errors.
The BX1100 can be mounted inline on horizontal or vertical braiders for automatic inspection, or work offline as a tabletop unit for fast and easy inspection by the operator.
