Laser’s edge in micromachining medical plastic parts

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014 | Permalink

As the medical device industry adjusts to a new business paradigm that is all about containing costs and proving not just the clinical but the economic value of new technologies, it needs to question an array of ingrained practices, starting with how it manufactures its products. From that perspective, and depending on the application, industry would do well to take a closer look at laser-based manufacturing processes, says Glenn Ogura, Executive Vice President of Business Development at laser micromachining systems supplier Resonetics (Nashua, NH).

MuCell molding shows promise for implantable scaffolds

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013 | Permalink

In a sign of the times, two different papers at ANTEC last month explored the potential of improving manufacturing processes for plastic scaffolds used in tissue engineering, that is the synthetic production of new human organs. One paper looked at use of injection molding microcellular foam, or MuCell, and the other looked at thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) because of its value in producing highly porous scaffolds with interconnected structures.
