Speed is the name of the game in getting a product to market before the competition. One technique medical device manufacturers are employing to help achieve faster design cycles for their products is rapid prototyping.
Hydrophobic polymeric membranes are widely used in medical devices to sterilize gases which pass through them or to provide sterile barriers between the atmosphere and device interiors.
Medical device manufacturers’ interest in outsourcing is growing and with it come many misconceptions and questions.
The SilverDust IG8 communication options include RS232, RS485, CAN, and Ethernet. This multi-channel architecture allows for a network of field devices using CAN to work simultaneously with a supervisory network using RS232, RS485, or Ethernet.
The MacroFlex Series of ribbon cable assemblies can be used in multiple applications requiring high performance ribbon cable assemblies, including board-to-board connections in medical electronic equipment.
The RoHS-compliant FJ Series of ultra-low profile jumpers is available. Specifically developed to ensure the reliability, functionality, and integrity of interconnect traces on multi-function printed circuit boards, the SMT jumpers are flat wireforms featuring a minimal profile.
Aluminum gas cylinders are available for medical O2 applications. The aluminum cylinders are as much as 50% lighter than traditional steel cylinders, making them easier to carry and handle.
The V160 vertical grinding and machining center incorporates ID/OD grinding, auto loading, and rough machining (hard turning) with automatic in-machine wheel dressing and in-process gauging, permitting the production of high precision parts complete in a single chucking.
Vericut 6.0 CNC machine simulation and optimization software has many features designed to increase the ability of CNC manufacturing engineers to analyze and optimize the entire CNC machining process in order to increase manufacturing efficiency.
The IASR/ASR multi indexable cutting tools utilize inserts coated with JX Coating—a PVD coating that incorporates particles with enhanced self-lubricating characteristics. Lubricity as well as hardness, heat-resistance, and chipping resistance are vastly improved over previous coatings.
The RoboDrill T-21EL DDR 700 V size vertical machining center is available with a choice of 10,000 or 24,000 rpm spindles and employs a direct-drive indexing system to achieve extremely high positioning and cutting speeds in the fourth axis.
A modern approach to turning hip joints is provided with these round inserts. When used for
The CT-S Super Tite-Lock Milling Chucks incorporate dual-stage clamping for improved performance in both heavy milling and finish milling.
To continue driving down cost per part, a series of lathes that provides milling capability as robust as a machining center was developed.
Featuring polished insert faces and cutting edges, AC610M and AC630M grades turn stainless steel and steel with excellent accuracy. Each grade combines advanced substrates and wear resistant Al 2 O 3 and TiCN coatings for longer tool life and increased productivity.
