For manufacturers of combination products, avoiding potential pitfalls is significantly more complex than with traditional medical devices due to the inclusion of a drug or biologic element. Therefore, companies need to ensure they have addressed concerns early in the material selection process.
Precision is of paramount importance in the manufacture of medical devices. Few technologies demonstrate the ability to achieve the necessary degree of accuracy more effectively than laser solutions.
As pressure mounts to improve product development times while maintaining low costs, device designers are constantly seeking tools that can enhance the efficiency of their processes. This search is even greater when developing combination products due to the addition of the biologic or drug element.
An inhaler is a very simple device for patients to use and one that is easily identifiable by those who require it. However, concerns with gauging the remaining amount of doses have caused device manufacturers to revisit its design.
Rotron regenerative blowers develop ideal air pressures and vacuums without the higher energy and maintenance costs typically associated with larger multi-stage or positive air-displacement blowers and compressors.
A family of load cells will allow design engineers to use direct force measurement in many OEM applications where the technology had previously been too expensive. Microfused load cells are manufactured at a fraction of traditional cost.
This extensive line of linear ball bushings is offered for most factory automation applications. By offering 259 types of linear ball bushings, customers are able to choose from a broad assortment of sizes and styles, so their application needs can be quickly met.
The Corcom brand feedthrough filters and capacitors are suitable for AC applications ranging from 10 to 300 amps, and DC applications ranging from 10 to 200 amps.
The ST10-S stepper drive delivers up to 10 A with 24-80 VDC input, and is specifically engineered to deliver maximum performance benefits in a compact and cost-effective package that satisfies the price and performance requirements of the OEM market.
The D6BN series of micro tilt sensors are designed for detecting mechanical vertical versus horizontal positioning. With a very low profile of 2.0 mm in a gull-wing SMD package, the D6BN sensors measure just 7 W x 7 D mm. They consume just 1 mA at 2.4 to 3.
The Speedi-Roll linear guiding system offers high load-carrying capacity, rigidity, and torque resistance where long strokes and/or high speeds are required.
Weighing just 33 grams, these brushless motors provide 50 watts of power at up to 60,000 RPM in a compact 16 mm housing, with incredibly quiet 39 dB operation.
These DC/DC converters deliver a stable, isolated high power (300 W), low voltage DC supply to ensure accessories operate properly, regardless of load current or state of battery charge.
The TC Temperature control line of vacuum chamber systems have been specifically engineered to meet or exceed the validation requirements of medical product manufacturers.
In-line laminate systems allow for both flexible film and sheet to achieve superior mechanical bonds to fabric during manufacturing. These improvements eliminate secondary processes, allowing for a single in-line laminate technique that negates the need for adhesives.
