First Neurosurgical Positioning Robot For High-Precision Brain Surgery

Our customer developed a robotic system for implementation in steterotactic brain surgery. It consists of a robotic arm assembly and a PC-based positioning system. By associating both image acquisition and surgical planning, surgeons can save up to 90 minutes of operating time per procedure and the robot is capable of delivering a great accuracy and consistency.

Project challenges and solutions provided by Valtronic

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.
