By Sean Fenske, Editor-in-Chief Last month, I had a fantastic opportunity to visit Singapore to see several medical device suppliers and outsourcing service providers. It was a country I knew very little about and had simply grouped in with the rest of Asia as a low labor market for manufacturing.
Silicone elastomers inherently have a high degree of surface tack and a tendency for blocking, which may cause problems in applications in which they come in contact with each other or other surfaces.
This low pressure gas plasma system is designed for deposition of a lubricious, low coefficient of friction coating on bulk medical components.
The Series T47A2, a mercury-free LCD miniature hour meter, has been introduced to replace the mercury hour meter. With an operating power of 6-24 VDC, this meter features a 5-digit, 4.25 mm LCD display. There is internal memory, maintained by the battery when not in use.
Providing medical design engineers with a cost-effective alternative to ultrasonic sensors, the OCB350 fluid sensor features automatic calibration circuitry, and is available with multiple output states, including "fluid present," "no fluid present," and "no tube present.
Ultrasonic welding uses high-frequency ultrasonic acoustic vibrations to create solid-state welds, and does not introduce contaminants into the weld, meaning that the machines can be specified for use in cleanrooms.
In order to provide a wide variety of motion control solutions, the Super-K Model Kinechek is being offered with a long 4 or 6 in. stroke unit within a short overall length. These leak proof Kinechek models can handle loads of up to 1,200 lbs.
Eight SMT packaged PLLs with integrated RF voltage controlled oscillators (VCO) are ideal for test equipment applications from 660 MHz to 5.1 GHz.
Rhapsody 7.5.1 is the latest version of a model-based development environment for systems engineers and embedded systems developers.
The Specialist systems include the SmartScope Specialist 300 multisensor dimensional measurement system and the Focus Specialist 16 in. Horizontal Contour Projector.
A high performance Universal BGA socket for 0.8-mm pitch DDR2 and DDR3 packages comes with many IC size variations ranging from 7.5 to 15.5 mm. The SG-BGA-6292 socket is designed to accommodate any of those package sizes and operates at bandwidths up to 8 GHz, with less than 1 dB of insertion loss.
Featuring a small footprint and low sound levels, this lightweight compressor is ideal for medical applications or any pressure application requiring a small, quiet, lightweight pump.
This two part epoxy resin system that features low to moderate viscosity is well suited for potting, coating, and sealing electronic assemblies. It excels at bonding dissimilar substrates with different coefficients of expansion and has a wide service temperature range of -60ºF to 250ºF.
Current OSHA and ANSI/PMMI standards require a lockout valve installed on all air-operated equipment to isolate the equipment from its air supply and to exhaust all downstream air pressure, making the equipment safe for maintenance.
