WESTEC, the premier West Coast manufacturing event, will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center – October 15-17, 2013. Produced by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), WESTEC was previously scheduled as a spring 2014 event, but increased industry demand and participant feedback convinced the organizers to shift the date forward.
As medical devices continue to get smaller in size, the assembly of the internal electronics becomes more critical. “Device Shrinkage Achieved Through Consideration of Assembly Factors,” this month’s cover story, looks at this issue and how working earlier with an outsourcing partner can help.
A 3D printer is a machine that creates objects from plastic or other materials using an additive manufacturing process. Additive manufacturing produces objects in a succession of layers from the bottom, up. This is the opposite of traditional subtractive manufacturing processes, which produce objects by cutting material away from a block to create the shape desired.
Gain best practices in overcoming international labeling challenges at the Medical Device Global Labeling Strategies Conference, July 24-25, 2013 in Minneapolis, MN. This premier marcus evans event will bring together leading medical device labeling professionals to discuss how to successfully create a label on both a national and international scale.
The newly reformatted MD&M East four day conference running alongside the tradeshow, covers everything you need to know from concept development to supplier management, giving you the essential updates to successfully management every step in the product development efficiently and cost effectively.
No longer an "emerging technology," additive manufacturing is leading industry innovation. From design, to prototype to production parts—vision becomes reality at SME’s RAPID Conference and Exposition. This technology has moved beyond ‘plastic’ parts of the past to full scale production in metals, alloys and more. See what’s possible for your operation at RAPID 2013.
Given the number of device applications that involve the transfer of a gas or liquid, it is no wonder pump technology is such a significant part of many healthcare-related products. “Innovation Drives Pump Technology to Meet Today’s Medical Designs” focuses on how today’s medical device demands are being answered by advanced pump technology.
The 2013 Test Center supplement to MDT covers a number of areas of medical device testing relevant to design engineers. One article covers examining and testing the human factor when it comes to the handling of a medical device. Another article focuses on the new ASTM F1929-12 guidelines for testing for seal leaks in porous medical packaging using dye.
Ingestible medical devices offer a convenient, non-invasive method of healthcare; however, the sensitive electronics must be protected. "Coating for Consumption" highlights a coating technology that is being used to guarantee such protection is provided.
The remote patient monitoring field is a rapidly growing one given the advantages it offers for home healthcare, remote regions, and elderly care. However, with it comes a long list of considerations and critical issues for designers and engineers to keep in mind. The cover story examines this area.
