Laser machining capabilities include data-matrix marking, allowing for a significant amount of data to be stored in a very small space. This process is typically used for marking small and difficult surfaces.
The redesigned, solenoid-operated 075P2 two-way valves have low power requirements and are available with a normally open or normally closed valve function. The design eliminates sharp edges, with smooth contours that allow easier insertion and removal of tubing without snares.
Circuit designers pressed for space should check out the CC7A-T1A, a MHz quartz crystal designed for applications in implantable medical, medical telemetry, and other high-reliability markets. This precision timing crystal has a package height of 0.9 mm and a footprint of only 3.2 × 1.5 mm.
Nano miniature electrical connectors are capable of terminating multiple lines of ultra-fine coaxial cable. Their proprietary process of terminating signals and grounds on separate contact pairs allows for extreme miniaturization of multi-contact high speed connectors.
Metal injection molding offers advantages to allow for producing complex, three dimensional shapes in medical device components that would be virtually impossible to achieve with conventional fabrication technologies.
Tubing products and tube processing services are offered to the medical device manufacturing industry. The company specializes in fabricating tubular parts from the simplest to the most intricate configurations and assemblies.
The GammaTag 500 is ideal for high volume items requiring repeated gamma sterilization. It is well suited to the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, gowning, and cleanroom supply industries. Unlike the original GammaTag, GammaTag 500 is designed for repeated exposure to gamma radiation.
The 1000 and 2000 InLine Pump Series offers several application specific configurations, allowing OEMs to maximize their accuracy and repeatability while minimizing size and internal volumes.
The MCP6051/2/4 (MCP605X), MCP6061/2/4 (MCP606X), and MCP6071/2/4 (MCP607X) op amps feature offset voltages of just 150 microvolts and are well suited for applications requiring low power consumption, low-voltage operation, and high precision. The devices feature operating voltage from 1.8 to 6.
LaserLathe is a completely integrated single-system motion platform for automated production operation in laser stent cutting.
The iCure AS200 is an inline fiber optic system that provides heat by infrared radiation in a portable unit, to deliver faster and stronger cures than traditional methods.
The MW-2800 Series optical washable mouse is sealed in a silicone rubber housing, allowing it to be safely sprayed, wiped, or submerged for fast and thorough cleaning.
In a world of hungry microorganisms, it is critical that medical devicesdesigned to healdo not inadvertently do the opposite by infecting the patient.
