Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West, AUGUST 10-12, 2021, Anaheim, CA
n Product Development
Trelleborg, Fort Wayne, IN, has launched
a new service to help healthcare and medical
customers expedite their new product
development process. This new offering is
designed to help minimize production
costs, quicken development time, and ensure superior-quality products.
The company engineers novel extrusion solutions to meet specific
tube and hosing applications. Examples include multilumen, silicone
foam extrusions, and kink-resistant tubing for a variety of critical
applications such as pacemaker and neuromodulation leads and urological
implants. The company's GeoTrans technology enables the
production of extrusion profiles that can change throughout the
length of the extrusion. MD&M West, Booth 2601

n Biocompatible Adhesives
EpoxySet Inc., Woonsocket, RI, offers a line of
adhesives, sealing, and encapsulating and coating
materials certified for biocompatibility. This
broad line of epoxies and urethanes are
approved to ISO-10993-5 and USP Class VI.
These are used extensively in the manufacture of medical devices. Most
of these systems can withstand sterilization techniques such as autoclave,
gamma radiation, and EO sterilization. This line includes products
that can withstand 300 °C or be temperature cycled down to 4 °K.
Many biocompatible materials are optically clear and exhibit very high
bond strength for structural requirements. MD&M West, Booth 645

n Dry Lubricant
MicroCare Medical, New Britain, CT,
offers a dry lubricant that has been specifically
engineered to improve the performance
of medical devices. Used on a variety
of applications including catheters, cutting
tools, surgical staplers, and hypo tubes, Duraglide™ dry lubricant
assists in reducing stiction (the combination of sticking and friction).
Made with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), it lowers surfaceto-surface
friction resulting in easier and more consistent movement
of actuation-based surgical and medical procedural equipment.
It enhances the operation of devices by reducing friction on
moving parts that slide, pivot, or twist. MD&M West, Booth 8073

Touchless Switch
A touchless switch is available from Schurter
Inc., Santa Rosa, CA. The TTS touchless switch
helps address the need to minimize contact. The
COVID-19 pandemic has greatly raised the consciousness
of the dangers of spreading pathogens,
particularly as it relates to man and machine interface. This phenomenon
gives rise to increased demand for touchless activation of equipment
and appliances used in public access areas, which has consequently
created demand for noncontact switches to replace conventional
touch switching technologies. MD&M West, Booth 644

n Precision Components
A line of high-precision technical components
and micro-miniature tools is
available from Small Precision Tools
(SPT), Petaluma, CA. The company's
expertise includes injection molded advanced ceramics and microminiature
parts that have complex shapes, structures, and details.
Features include near-net forming, high strength and hardness,
and durability. Parts are biocompatible, chemically inert, and thermally
stable. MD&M West, Booth 3191

n Mechanical Cable Assemblies
Stainless steel mechanical cable assemblies
produced by Carl Stahl Sava Industries,
Riverdale, NJ, facilitate movement of prosthetic
limbs. The company recently partnered with
Unlimited Tomorrow to create a totally
autonomous prosthetic arm that provides wearers total control
over the device's robotic hand. The cables behave as tendons, giving
the hand natural and realistic human-like movement, while
providing powerful grip capabilities as well. The mechanical cables
that facilitate TrueLimb's movement comprise 7×49, stainless steel
wire rope, that is 0.032 in. in diameter and coated with nylon to a
diameter of 0.037 in. MD&M West, Booth 2959

n Media Isolation Valves
Media isolation valves from Clippard,
Cincinnati, OH, are solenoid-operated
devices that use a flexible diaphragm to isolate
the actuation mechanism from the
fluid path. Media isolation valves are commonly
used for a wide variety of applications, including those that
require precise, repeatable dispensing of media. All wetted areas of
the valve are PTFE, making this series ideal for use with corrosive
media. A one-piece valve stem functions as a sealing membrane
while also supporting and centralizing the poppet in the seating
area. The multi-functional poppet/diaphragm/stem results in a
simplified design with fewer parts, longer life and zero dead volume.

n Micro-Miniature Load Cell
A micro-miniature load cell from
FUTEK, Irvine, CA, measures 4 × 5 mm.
The QLA414 NANO force sensor is ideal
for robotic surgery applications, where
force sensor size is critical. The NANO features M1 threaded doublesided
mounting provisions and unique thru-hole design allowing for
flexible slide on, weld-on over the tube, wire, or shaft integration
options. Nano sensors multi-element, side-load-compensated 1000
full-bridge instrumentation is encased with laser-welded construction
with nonactive interconnect packaging. It allows for high accuracy
in 5- and 10-lb capacities with ultra-low deflection and high natural
frequency response up to 98 KHz. MD&M West, Booth 1943
