Precise motion control is critical in a number of medical devices. Unfortunately, with the many options available to manufacturers, it is often difficult to know which solution is ideal for a particular application.
Corporate culture plays an enormous role on the productivity of a company's workforce, yet it is an aspect that is seldom considered as a method with which to improve efficiency.
Requiring exceptional precision in their welding processes, medical device manufacturers are looking to laser technology experts to provide a system that enables such a high degree of accuracy.

The “EC 45 4-pole” delivers the performance and lifetime of a brushless motor. A powerful 4-pole neodymium magnet provides high torque without a gearhead. The motors are electronically commutated thus enabling extremely long motor life, since there are simply no mechanical brushes to wear out.
A full line of chemical resistant tubing products extruded from TexFluor PTFE, FEP, PFA, or MFA is available for use in material handling applications such as delivery systems.
This fully automated screen printing machine is designed for use with injection molding robots. The machine dial is specially made to match the number of cavities in the injection mold. The injection mold unload robot first takes the printed and UV cured products off the machine dial.
With an outer diameter as small as 8 mm, these high precision miniature joints are suited specifically for medical equipment and many applications in which space is restricted.
In most applications, the B3W series electric belt drive actuator can be used as a direct drop-in replacement for the B3B actuator, allowing users to accelerate larger loads faster without additional cost. It is designed for high wear resistance, repeatable accuracy, and high load capacities.
The miniature, high resolution, progressive scan, “ice-cube-size” CCD camera family—the IK-52V (1/2 inch) and IK-53V (1/3 inch) are 29 mm ³ and weigh only 45 grams each. Both feature VGA resolution. The 659 x 494 pixels feature horizontal resolution at 500 TV lines.
The IRtec Rayomatic 10 non-contact infrared thermometer is designed for high performance and extreme efficiency, both requirements in abrasive conditions.
The LDS series inverters provide a high efficiency DC-AC inverter in a compact form factor for use with a range of LCD panel sizes from 6.4 in. to 12.1 in. diagonal. Measuring only 133.
This “clam shell” balloon forming machine provides very accurate and repeatable controls needed to produce high-quality balloons. The machine features electrically heated, longitudinally split molds with chilled water cooling.
Allowing design engineers to further reduce the size of portable electronic devices, these tantalum polymer capacitors deliver a high capacitance value capability. Designated the TCJ series, the capacitors are one to three capacitance value (CV) levels higher than other devices on the market.
