EPOXY
Master Bond EP304Med
is a two-part
epoxy system with a fast set up time that cures at room
temperature, or even more rapidly with a bit of heat. This
low viscosity system meets the requirements of ISO
10993-5 testing and is therefore considered to be noncytotoxic.

■ Plastic Optic Fiber
Toray, New York, NY, has improved the bend resilience of its platic
optic fiber. The Raytela® plastic optic fiber has been extensively tested
in a tightly controlled, 77 °F environment deploying a 2-point bending
test comprised of 10-mm-diameter stainless-steel rods and 175-g weighted pulls on both ends
of the fiber. Using a 1-m sample length fiber, the automated testing machine conducted a series
of repetitive bending tests of full 180° bends. The test series of numerous cables resulted in a measured
average of 34,500 bends before breakage, a significant accomplishment and a durability feature
ideal for endoscopy illumination and ophthalmic lighting equipment.

■ Power Modules
TT Electronics, Woking, UK, has launched compact AC-DC encapsulated power
modules. The PAA and PAAM series is ideal for space-constrained medical electronic
equipment applications. Available in power ratings ranging from 5 to 150 W,
the PAA modules are PCB mountable in a compact footprint starting at 1.1 × 1.5
in. (8.05 W/in³). A 4 kVac input-to-output isolation provides safety when interfacing
with downstream SELV networks. The modules provide conversion efficiencies of up to 89 percent
and are free air convection cooled to improve end system reliability and reduce energy waste. PAAM
encapsulated power modules are available in power ratings from 15 to 150 W.

■ Linear Actuator
Electric cylinders from Moticont, Van Nuys, CA, now include a 1-in. (25.4 mm)
stroke actuator in its compact 0.750-in. (19.1 mm) diameter series of linear actuators.
The SDLM-019-095-01-01 actuator features a continuous force of 6.8 oz (1.9 N) and a peak
force of 21.6 oz (6.0 N). A precision linear optical quadrature encoder is integrated and protected
inside the actuator housing. It is directly connected to the nonrotating shaft to eliminate backlash
for highest possible stability in a servo loop. It can operate at peak efficiency by monitoring the
inside temperature from an internal temperature sensor, resulting in greater throughputs.

■ PEEK for Prosthesis Systems
Evonik, Darmstadt, Germany, offers a high-performance polymer for complex
joint prosthesis systems. The company is working with medical specialists at the
Center for Knee and Hip Replacement at Massachusetts General Hospital in
Boston, MA, to explore the application for VESTAKEEP® PEEK. If the innovation
succeeds, the service life of VESTAKEEP-based joint prostheses could be significantly
extended, consequently reducing revision surgery or years of pain therapy.
The company is analyzing the weak points of the joint prosthesis systems already established on
the market and developing a solution with the high-performance PEEK polymer.

■ Linear Actuators
Haydon Kerk Pittman, Waterbury, CT, has launched a configurable linear
actuator with a compact low profile. The MiniSlide series has two motor
options: a 21-mm, size 8 hybrid linear actuator, and a 20-mm, 19000 series can
stack linear actuator. Nine different lead screw options range from ~0.3 to 8 mm, providing resolution
down to 0.001524 mm (0.00006 in.) per step, axial forces up to 45 N, and accommodating
stroke lengths of up to 150 mm. It is available in four different lubrications. A rotary encoder feedback
is optional. Both English and metric mounting hardware standards are offered.

Intro
Cov
A new line of silicon nitride-based ceramic products for medical applications is available from
SINTX Technologies, Salt Lake City, UT. The branding of FleX SNTM reflects the company's
evolution from producing monolithic spinal implants to a wider array of silicon nitride-based
technologies for use in biomedical and antipathogenic applications, such as wound care and
dressings, spinal and dental implants, and consumer face masks. Other applications include particulate
silicon nitride, polymer composites, and coatings on other materials.
