PEEK moves into medical electronics application

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013 | Permalink

The plastics-versus-metals battle isn’t strictly an automotive or industrial components play. There’s also considerable action in medical devices. Two key issues in each area are lightweighting and durability. One new example comes from Ametek Engineered Medical Components (Arlington, MN), which is part of Ametek’s Engineered Materials, Interconnects and Packaging (EMIP) Division.

New acrylic alloy targets PC, copolyesters in IV lines

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 | Permalink

  A new acrylic alloy is taking direct aim at injection molded polycarbonate and copolyesters used in IV line components requiring chemical resistance. Tests of the new material from Altuglas International, a subsidiary of Arkema, indicate that the new material, called Altuglas Luctor, resists attack from alcohols, lipid emulsions, plasticizers, TPN solutions, and new-generation oncology drugs. Contact with flexible PVC tubing can be a particular problem for the two medical plastics most commonly used in IV assemblies. Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites read more

In-mold internal welding targets medical counterfeiters

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013 | Permalink

The rapid emergence of electronic identification systems to prevent medical counterfeiting will get a boost from a new internal welding process supplied by Wittmann Battenfeld (Kottingbrunn, Austria). Called IMIW for In-Mold Internal Welding, it is now possible to insert mold parts with a gas- and waterproof protective barrier for sensitive electronic components. Molded parts are joined together by injection molding the connection between the contact surfaces with the same plastic material from the inside.
