Tradeshows are certainly nothing new to most industries as they provide an excellent means of communication for both the attendees and exhibitors alike. What makes the Medical Design & Device show stand out is its focus on the Northern California medical device manufacturing market.
Italy-based membrane switch manufacturer, Tastitalia, continues to penetrate the medical device market with new designs using the patented Duraswitch PushGate pushbutton technology. Its latest design win is a portable biofeedback and telemetry system.
With healthcare needs on the rise, medical OEMs are turning to plastics to create safer, more innovative products, and to minimize business costs. As such, Eastman Chemical Company’s Eastar Copolyester MB002 was selected for the redesign of Artegraft Inc.’s 21-in.
An MRI-compatible drug delivery pump based on New Scale Technologies Inc.’s piezoelectric Squiggle motor has been successfully demonstrated by researchers at Roswell Park Cancer Institute of Buffalo, NY.
This series of equipment health monitoring (EHM) system detectors were developed specifically to monitor industrial equipment. The EHM system is used to monitor operation condition variances in industrial machinery that can lead to breakdowns, increased maintenance costs, and production stoppages.
Flextrac plastic chain belt conveyors move heavier loads faster over longer distances than standard flat belt conveyors. With load capacities up to 500 lbs. and speeds up to 375 feet per minute, Flextrac conveyors fit almost any application.
A Simulia direct coupling interface allows third-party physics codes developed by partners or customers to communicate directly with the company’s Abaqus FEA software for high-performance multiphysics simulation.
