The ProcessMate 6500 temperature control system eliminates temperature fluctuations in assembly fluids that can cause variations in shot size, viscosity, and pot life when dispensing solder pastes, thermal-cure epoxies, and other temperature-sensitive materials.
The Videojet 1310 ink jet printer is available in North America with a simpler user interface, similar to the popular Videojet Excel ink jet printer.
The Model RS linear drive offers a wider range of linear pitch settings for improved versatility and functionality in meeting linear motion application requirements. The change to linear pitch requires no re-gearing or adjustment to motor speed.
Galileo EZ is an affordable, compact manual vision system featuring live video camera feed and automatic edge detection via the new Metronics QC300 digital readout, high quality optics, and more.
Developed specifically for professionals in a variety of markets including the biotechnology and medical device manufacturing industries, the Suprel LS controlled environment apparel line delivers a unique combination of comfort, breathability, protection, and value.
Closely monitored project management is essential to the success of clean room manufacturing. This
As more portable electronic medical devices are introduced to monitor and treat patients, manufacturers are seeking technologies with which to reduce the complexity involved in the design of the finished product.
The Project: Test the mechanical strength of drug-eluting, polymer fiber stents to determine their ability to be utilized in specific applications. The Solution: Use benchtop tensile testing technology to verify the strength of the flexible stents.
Reticulated polyurethane foam handles a wide range of medical and healthcare tasks with ease in devices ranging from blood oxygenators, transdermal patches, and EKG pads to pre-op sponges, surgical drapes, and neck braces.
Guidelines that aid medical device manufacturers in the regulatory approval process are welcomed resources for engineers. The third edition of the IEC 60601-1 integrates risk management into the previously accepted safety standards for medical electrical equipment.
The Project: Verify that geometry and surface texture of the housing for a heart pump will facilitate smooth functioning while not adversely affecting blood. The Solution: Use extremely accurate instrumentation to measure form and surface to ensure they are compliant with specifications.
There have been a number of changes in the last decade, which have raised questions as to how manufacturers should design cleaning and sterilization validation in order to be in compliance with new standards.
The low drift solid-state ROD-360-UV18 detector has been developed specifically for the measurement of effective ultraviolet germicidal irradiance applied in air and water sterilization applications employing low and medium pressure Hg or pulsed Xenon lamps.
This reciprocating linear motion platform is driven by a rolling ring drive which reciprocates automatically without requiring motor reversal. Using a control knob on the assembly, adjustments to linear speed are also possible on-the-fly—without changing the motor speed or reducing gears.
The compact DS1100 uses an over/under conveyor design to feed parts in trays to conveyor-fed automated workstations. This tray indexing design reduces the machine's footprint so it takes less floor space, while improving workflow.
