By Brian Wright With more and more jobs heading overseas, a growing number of molding companies have been changing their focus to medical device manufacturing. This can make sense; however, it is usually easier said than done.
By Andrew Nield For the medical device industry ceramic injection molding (CIM) can be an alternative to metals or plastics, especially when conditions demand a more advanced type of material.
By Jeff Randall, PE As medical technology advances and the demands on surgical parts increase, the need for high-quality, tight-tolerance components continues to rise.
A black-and-white double On/Off switch has been added to the company’s range of economically-priced RoHS compliant Series 44 industrial controls. This product features a large, illuminated central lens to indicate the status of equipment.
This electrostatic voltage sensor (Model 875) is designed for in-line monitoring of electrostatic charge build-up, which if left unchecked, would disrupt manufacturing processes and/or cause product degradation and early life failure of semiconductors and other charge-sensitive components.
The Galileo KineMic, an entry level modular video-based inspection system, is well-suited for quality assurance, receiving inspection, training, manufacturing, assembly, research, documentation, and a variety of other applications.
These snap rings are directly interchangeable with Eaton rings. The XAH, XAS, XDH, and XDS series are available from stock in over 300 sizes ranging from 0.375? to 10?, 13 mm to 300 mm. The company also offers four additional standard series of snap rings in both inch and metric units.
Company offers narrow web slitting services of IVD components including nitrocellulose, fiberglass, absorbent pads, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes, conductive films, and more. Its proprietary process supports working with delicate materials with little or no tension and slitting as narrow as 3.
This low cost, 3.2 mm × 2.5 mm HCMOS XpressO oscillator can be shipped in 10 days or less for production quantities and next day for samples in any frequency from 0.75 MHz to 250 MHz. With a uniquely wide frequency range as well as an industry standard footprint and pin-out, the new 3.
Crisp blue and white LED illumination options are available for the Series 84 range of pushbutton switches. These options are in supplement to the current options of single or multi-chip LEDs in red, yellow, and green.
Consistent curing requires consistent light intensity. The new ACCU-CAL 50V radiometer is simple to operate and offers repeatable measurement of visible light. The ACCU-CAL 50V can measure visible light energy emitted from lightguides (3.0, 5.0, and 8.0 mm), flood systems, and conveyors.
The Mezza-pede 1.0 mm SMT connectors are designed for 1.0 mm pitch micro board-to-board and flex cable-to-board applications. The screw-machined, low profile Mezza-pede connector system is especially suited for high reliability applications. With a mated height of only 4.
The company has improved its existing production technology to achieve higher production speeds and efficiency to cater to the growing demand for transdermal patches.
The 35000 series (Size 14) double stack captive hybrid linear actuator, designed with an internal anti-rotation mechanism, is especially well suited for applications in which external anti-rotation methods would be difficult or impossible to employ.
Laser marking provides an ideal permanent marking solution on medical devices and equipment, surgical instruments, and orthopedic inserts, as well as in conjunction with high speed packaging and labeling lines.
