The Project: Develop a more sophisticated approach to the design and development process beyond the build-and-test method for a novel cardiac pump device. The Solution: Use FEA software to test a variety of different variables that need to be examined for a successful design of the device.
Molding is a critical process in the manufacture of medical devices. However, long molding runs are not always the ideal option for the fabrication of components for a device. Short run molding provides numerous advantages to medical device designers that would not be otherwise realized.
The LG Linear guide ball bushing offers high accuracy, smooth motion, and high load capacities. Its rotation prevention function, where four rows of circular arc grooves are arranged on the shaft, is included to ensure precise movement.
The Optex MVS color camera system features a compact controller with a touch-screen monitor supporting up to three cameras and lighting for fast and easy integration. The controller has a built-in 4.
Company has increased its choice of materials available within the company’s dip molding technology. They are now able to offer dip-molded parts made of synthetic polyisoprene. This material has the look, feel, and physical properties of natural rubber latex.
New, additional colors have been added to the line of rugged devices which replace wire-wrap posts and turret terminals. The new colors consist of brown, green, blue, purple, and gray which, with the existing colors, can be used on 0.062 and 0.093 thick PCBs with a variety of gripping devices.
PowerCon AC connectors, 32 amp power connectors, are now available. The connectors are 3-pole, single-phase AC installation couplers without breaking capacity and they feature a current rating of 32 amps for voltage up to 250 Vac, as well as a unique locking system and cable strain relief.
Plasma3 VCP provides variable chemistry atmospheric plasma for difficult surfaces. The treatment eliminates the need for expensive priming, batching, and hazardous chemical surface preparation processes.
The Flex DC combines a high performance motion controller with one or two axes of company drivers. The Flex DC is suitable to all applications and is supported with an easy-to-use GUI for machine set up and tuning.
Company has expanded its line of DC-DC converters with the launch of the iHG series of 100W fully isolated, single output, half-brick devices. The modules are ideal for engineers designing low airflow, high temperature, 48 V power architectures.
The Oxygen Clean series electronic valves offer single and double-sided mounting in oxygen-compatible electroless nickel-plated brass material, and feature 1/8" NPT input ports and 10-32 outlets.
The AG-700, an intensified camera for low-light applications, combines a high performance Gen III Ultra intensifier tube with a small, interlaced CCD camera offering standard RS-170 analog video output for easy connectivity to monitors and image acquisition cards.
Company’s new perfluorinated semi-inert solenoid valve is specifically designed to handle moderately aggressive gases and liquids in a wide range of fluid handling applications.
Laboratory researchers have demonstrated it is possible to improve two crucial OLED characteristics simultaneously: efficiency and lifetime. The color rendering index (CRI) of the almost 100 cm² prototype is 80.
The TL6190 is a right angle sealed tactile switch featuring reliable dome technology and a strong tactile force. This process-sealed switch has multiple operating forces and a life expectancy of over 100,000 cycles.
