Brushless Motors with Integral Motion Controls Benefit Medical Product Development

June 5, 2012 7:25 am | by John Morehead | Comments

Product development in medical devices is rapidly embracing the distributed motion benefits of brushless servo motors with integral motion controls for many reasons. The most important is that smart servo motors allow medical device developers to concentrate on and grow their core competencies without having to get into the minutiae of motion control, a specialized field of engineering unto itself.

Living in the Material World

June 5, 2012 7:00 am | by Gus Breiland | Comments

Molding prototype components enables the medical device designer to get a “preview” of a finished part before going into full production. However, to get the full benefit of this, material selection should be just about completed, including any additives that are to be used. This article looks at the considerations for medical device developers when planning molded prototype components.

Conformal Cooling Using DMLS

June 5, 2012 6:44 am | by Tim Ruffner | Comments

Conformal cooling in tool design is a concept that’s fundamentally sound. The trouble lies in the mechanics. Design obstacles imposed by performance boundaries in available machining processes often put its merits out of practical reach. The emergence and attainability of DMLS technology gives toolmakers the design latitude to make conformal cooling a profitable reality.

How Low Can You Go?

June 5, 2012 5:58 am | by Donnie Garcia | Comments

"Low power” is almost always used to describe MCUs, and it’s usually accompanied by power mode specifications and battery life calculations based on milliamp hours. While those aspects of low power design are important, there are other embedded design techniques that can lead to a significant extension of the usable lifetime of a product, which is the focus of this article.

Injection Molding Small Complex Bioabsorbable Implants

June 5, 2012 5:25 am | by Tanner Hargens | Comments

Injection molding intricate components for medical device implantables is a difficult task on its own. Add absorbable polymer to the equation and it becomes many times more challenging. This article reviews several of the barriers to success in this area of component fabrication for implantable medical devices.
