The versatility of Victrex Peek polymer is demonstrated by its ability to replace metal in connection clamps for x-ray tablets. The high-performance thermoplastic is wear resistant, and being a dielectric material, functions as an excellent insulator in electrical connectors and cable applications for medical components and instrumentation. High-precision, injection-molded Peek parts make the medical clamps not only a low-cost option, compared to metals, but also a lighter, more secure and durable solution.
Clinics and hospitals depend on lightweight durable digital imaging equipment that can make every day repetitive tasks easier and more efficient. The reliability of x-ray tablets hinges on their electrical cable connections being secure and durable. Metals are not able to withstand the repetitive sliding and locking when used in connection clamps and can degrade the mating connector on the tablet.
