The idea has been thought up, the "napkin sketch" has been made, and the project is ready to move forward. So what's the first "real" step in the design process? This was the question for the participants in this month's Perspectives feature.
Engineered as a solution for a variety of applications including needles, sutures, tubing, medical packaging, and gloves, the 3300 single column medical device testing system is easily configured with grips or fixtures for tension, compression, flex, and peel testing.
The Specto length gauges set new standards for size and mechanical durability and are especially useful for process monitoring and quality control applications. Besides providing an accuracy of ±1 µm, these incremental length gauges have measuring ranges of 12 and 30 mm (0.47 and 1.2 in.
The OneTouch is an optical measuring system that offers very fast and accurate dimensional analysis. Perform micron level accuracy on just a few features or highly complex piece parts with the touch of a button.
Operated in conjunction with the TA.XT Plus texture analyzer, this innovative attachment effectively measures the aspiration force of filled syringe pistons.
The 983v2 Static Locator is a lightweight pocket-sized device that provides an accurate measurement of static electrical charges over a wide range of voltages.
The I-9500LXI packs all the features commercial users need for testing power supplies in one single-bay cabinet. Designed to test AC-DC and DC-DC power converters under 1,000 Watts, it’s perfect for manufacturers of medical instruments.
The Solo Whistle is a ready-to-use, integrated solution designed to simply and efficiently connect the Whistle Servo Drive directly to the application.
This high output power 200 watt (BLF 6200 series) and 400 watt (BLF 6400 series) brushless DC motor and driver speed control package is RoHS compliant.
The T24MSA001-MD medical-grade 24 LCD color widescreen monitor with full HD (1080p) resolution ensures the most natural reproduction of video images and the highest level of differentiation during such applications as diagnostic analysis, video endoscopy, and surgery.
This rapid curing, highly flexible visible light cure adhesive formulation, Loctite 3974, is offered for medical bonding, potting, and sealing applications.
The PowerMod HP (high power) series connector family features touch-safe female housings, cable strain relief, and integral positive latches. These safety features, combined with the ease of connector assembly, establish a new standard for cost effective high power connectors.
Panel mounting StepNet AC drives run directly on 115/240 VAC at 7A peak current, eliminating a separate DC supply. Pivotal benefits include servo mode operation for smooth, quiet stepper motor operation and freedom from lost steps.
Electronic components used in medical devices can often experience much shorter lifecycles than the products in which they are used. With the additional challenges that come from replacing a part in a finished device, it is best to be as prepared for this inevitable process as possible.
Microwelding provides the medical device industry with yet another manufacturing solution option that enables OEMs to achieve further miniaturization of their products. It can be an ideal alternative to additive joining processes for a number of reasons.
