Project with double challenge: the assembly of very complex mechanical and electronical parts, and the implicit pressure on production cost for a disposable device.
Valtronic designed a device using a camera with CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) image sensor technology and a LED light source. The team also participated in the very complex integration of electronic, optical and mechanical parts of the design.
Our customer needed to design and manufacture the stereotactic arm of the robot. Such an arm is made of mechanical parts and of cables which have to be assembled in a way that guarantees high positioning precision and five-axis movement.
Valtronic suggested some adaptations of the main structure and developed a specific industrialization process that includes the manufacturing of the mechanical parts and the assembling and integration of all the components. The process also guaranteed an optimized management of the supply chain for the numerous different components of the arm.
Echopulse® is a robot allowing to treat tumors by ultrasound technology. The Ultrasound Non Invasive Surgery (UNIS) method uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), to treat benign thyroid nodules and breast fibro adenomas.
The Valtronic team managed the whole project, starting from a blank page. It designed the machine housing, the robotic axes allowing for high-precision movements, the three interconnected PCBs, the HIFU ultra-sound, the firmware and the software which pilots all the critical treatment parameters.
