Four men and one woman reduced to a microscopic fraction of their original size, boarding a miniaturized atomic sub and being injected into a dying man's carotid artery.
The Project: Power RFID tags that are used to collect data and track medical equipment throughout the hospital. The Solution: Employ high temperature lithium batteries so devices can go through sterilization cycles without having to remove the power source, enabling a continuous data stream.
The Mini Series lead screw assemblies are for demanding miniature applications, such as miniature pumps and dispensing systems, micro-actuators, and laser/optical focusing mechanisms.
Suitable for cleanroom environments, the CGL15N/CGL20N Actuator has a clean, corrosion resistant, and longterm maintenance-free design. For low particle generation, it features a seal mechanism and a full size cover. AFE-CA grease (designed for cleanrooms) is also used to reduce dust.
The Motomate brushless motor features compact size, convenience, and easy programmability. Designed with an integral controller, the motor provides an all-in-one solution for a wide range of applications where programmable movement of simple mechanisms is required.
The flat motor measures Ø10 × 12.5 mm and offers a high nominal torque of up to 0.83 mNm and a stall torque of up to 1.29 mNm. Its outer diameter of 10 mm includes a protective cover that serves as protection against contact and as a mounting aid during installation of the motor.
The closed-loop Ecodry System is an alternative to cooling towers/chillers. Suitable for any climate, the cleanroom ready system decreases water and energy usage by up to 95% and increases productivity by up to 20%.
Trilliant HC blends are well-suited for hand-held medical-device applications, such as diagnostic tools, blood-glucose meters, pulse oximeters, and battery-powered feeding pumps, in which close contact with the skin and cleaning with chemicals is common.
The Makrolon Rx2435 polycarbonate resin is a medical grade that addresses the increasing demand for a radiation sterilizable material for thin-wall medical applications. Like Makrolon Rx2530 polycarbonate, the Rx2435 exhibits a balance of mechanical strength and toughness.
The ultrasonic welding machine HiQ evolution focuses on energy efficiency, user-friendliness, the upcoming New Machinery Directive, and ergonomics.
Brush and brushless DC vibration motors are aimed at a wide range of applications. These 10 mm OD coin shaped devices include the brushless DC vibration motor, the LBV10L at 3.4 mm thick, LBV10B at 3.0 mm thick, and the slimmer LBV10C at 2.35 mm thick. Excitation voltage is a universal 3.0 VDC.
Medical device and medical supply manufacturers with applications requiring high speed leak testing of parts (from several cubic centimeters to several liter volumes) can now integrate leak testing into test-intensive assembly operations using the M-1075-Y mass flow leak detectors.
Advanced technology for producing thin walled, large diameter, low durometer urethane extrusions is available. Commonly used in minimally invasive medical devices, such extrusions have been fraught with manufacturability challenges.
Nimbus antimicrobial technology has been applied to adhesives for the purpose of combating infection. It is a next generation antimicrobial technology that is non-leaching, non-toxic, long-lasting, and not blocked by organics, such as blood, urine, or perspiration.
