The medical industry is constantly changing and adapting to the latest advancements in technology. And because these technologies can mean life or death in some cases, a high level of quality and precision is essential in the production of vital components for the medical and biotech industries.
But, unlike other forms of mass manufacturing, customization often plays a key role in the creation of the components used in the field. The customization of parts and precision manufacturing capabilities for medical use requires qualified professionals who understand every detail of your product needs.
Whether it be custom die-cut components for the medical industry, precision manufacturing or the use of CNC machining for complex medical components, the development and production process demands a range of capabilities that can meet the needs of the customer.
As mentioned above, the development, design and function of critical medical parts and products depends greatly on the materials selected. For some applications, thermal and electrical properties are key. For others, flexibility, strength and longevity may play a major role in their design.
Plastics can provide both flexibility and electrical insulation for specific products. While thin plastics may benefit from a precision die-cutting process, in other cases, CNC machining may be the ideal method for creating the component. Thickness range for many parts may need to meet certain challenges as well. There are several plastic materials that can meet your unique requirements.
At American Micro Industries, we take great pride in our ability to work with the most popular types of plastics to meet the demands of our customers in the medical industry. We’re your best source for expertly machined plastic components. Acetal, acrylics, PVDF and Teflon, as well as almost any other type of plastic, can be used in your product or component design.
Some plastics are designed to withstand temperatures exceeding 200 degrees Fahrenheit, making them ideal for healthcare applications that require high working temperatures.
For electrical applications, electrical insulating materials including fish paper, VHR-115, E-FR, Polyester Film and CE, LE, G10/FR4 phenolics can be used for manufacturing certain components and custom die-cut to your specifications. In other cases, rigid foams, carving foams or specific rubbers may provide the best physical and mechanical properties for functional operation.
