Robots are starting to move into the OR. This article presents an overview of how the pioneers in this evolving field are bringing innovative techniques to surgeons. On the cover: The majority of surgical robots are better described as teleoperators.
Performance, manufacturability, safety, and overall cost are crucial when selecting coating technologies, while ease of application, use of hazardous solvents, cycle time, and scrap rates are key when evaluating a coating’s manufacturing process.
Many medical device packaging manufacturers struggle to understand what they need to do to test and certify their packages.
Productivity and profitability are two important goals when working with extrusions. This exclusive report offers advice for producing extrusions that meet dimensional specifications and maintain specified minimum tolerances so that end products can be economically produced.
DesignFlex brushes are designed to reduce application costs and weight and add performance to medical products. They use synthetic materials and eliminate the expensive stainless steel typically needed when constructing brushes.
The MX12D Series is the next-generation of the MX12P camera, which has a large installed base in medical X-ray applications and is popular for machine vision applications due to its performance using frame transfer CCD technology.
One year ago this month, Medical Design Technology was relaunched as a feature-based publication with a new look, style, and size.
Series 120 solenoid valves are ultra-miniature, magnetically latched solenoid valves featuring high-performance flow-switching characteristics.
The AccuVision internal backlit conveyor is engineered to enable efficient, accurate visual inspections.
Promising high lubricity, superior chemical resistance, and excellent electrical insulating characteristics, PTFE is available to be selectively coated onto small diameter wire components such as pins, needles, and electrodes as well as plain wire.
This ultrasonic precision press system features a 30/40 actuator mounted on an ultra-rigid support package. The 30/40’s square-welded, steel H-frame style column sets it apart from other systems. The column eliminates deflection so that the machine is repeatable and precise.
The “Customization By Your Design” program improves the efficiency and effectiveness of device creation by meeting specific customer requirements. The program features design quotes in 72 hours; over 2,000 product designs customizable to specifications; and quick turnaround times.
The Magellan MC50110 single-axis, single-IC motion processor is designed for controlling multiple motor types, such as DC brush, brushless DC, microstepping, pulse, and direction motors.
The P3400 label printer applicator has a modular design for seamless combination of the base system, a print engine, and one of eight standard application modules.
A range of lead-free, visible wavelength laser diodes—rated to 50°C—offers very high output powers of 40 mW absolute maximum (DL-LS1148) or 25 mW absolute maximum (DL-LS1164) in a 5.6-mm package. These high output powers were previously available only in a 9-mm package laser diode.
