Sierra 5th Axis

Measure non-cylindrical features with confidence


Fastest, most accurate measurement of transcatheter heart valve frames and similar products

Sierra 5th-Axis is explicitly designed to measure transcatheter heart valve frames and similar products, and it does it faster and more accurately than any competitor.

Sierra 5th-Axis extends the proven capabilities of Sierra Dimensional to the THV industry by adding the ability to measure non-cylindrical features. Sierra 5th-Axis can measure tapered areas and barbs faster and more accurately than general purpose 5-axis measuring machines.
