How does one redesign an 18,000 pound, 12 MeV electron linear accelerator that typically requires
Developing complex plastic medical components for high volume assembly can be greatly enhanced by taking advantage of early supplier involvement.
Electrosurgical devices require an energy platform to generate the power necessary to function properly. Working closely with surgeons on the design, a device maker has introduced a unit to provide exactly the type of control and power needed for these surgical tools.
Since plastics do not all present with the same attributes or offer the same physical characteristics, there is a need for specificity in the accelerated aging testing of them.
Nanotechnology is still very much in the development phase in terms of having a meaningful impact on healthcare treatment options.
Drug reconstitution can be a challenging task for non-healthcare trained patients trying to prepare a drug for self-administration.
Inhalation therapy has proven to be an effective method of administering a number of pharmaceuticals for more than a century. However, achieving the optimal particle size for a treatment with particular pharmaceutical formulations has been a troublesome task.
Indexing air-blast machines add quality and performance to medical devices, including joint replacements, nails and rods, surgical equipment and medical accessories, by altering the characteristics of their surfaces.
The Dyne-A-Mite IT is a high performance surface treater that provides a safe and effective means of cleaning surfaces and raising surface energy to promote the adhering and bonding of a wide variety of materials.
SanfordPrint is a novel printing technique that replaces conventional silk screen printing. Unlike conventional printing where the ink resides on the surface of the part, SanfordPrint embeds the print securely within an extremely durable aluminum hard coat.
The high-quality Tech Spec family of optical components has been enhanced by adding a visible, antireflection coating option to its plano-convex, plano-concave, double-convex, double-concave, and achromatic lines. The coating features an average reflectance of less than 0.
The SC-400 PreciseCoat conformal coating jet is designed for applying coating materials to highly selective areas, especially on small substrates or substrates with high-component density where there are tight tolerances between coated and uncoated areas.
On August 31, 2006, an operation took place at the Royal Perth Hospital in Australia which could lead to a complete change in surgery for hip joint endoprosthesis.
The first Arcam EBM S-400 rapid manufacturing and prototyping system from Stratasys was installed at Medical Modeling LLC. The company will use the system to provide surgeons and medical device manufacturers with titanium models for improved surgical planning and implant development.
