Medical Plastic Division – July 2021 Virtual Technical Forum & Networking Event

July 7, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Virtual Conference,

Medical device failures occur more often than we would like. Many times, these failures stem from material, design, or processing issues. During this presentation strategies for fielding robust medical products will be discussed through capabilities and case studies. Topics will include material selection, polymer welding (ultrasonic, laser, IR, spin, etc.), dissimilar material joining, modeling, and characterization. Case studies will be used to show novel applications for small parts, as thin as 0.003 inches, and continuous fiber filled thermoplastics. The audience will gain an understanding of new ways to join and assemble medical devices in a cost effective and reliable manner.

October Virtual Technical Forum & Networking Event

October 6, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Virtual Conference,

Acetal (POM) is an ideal candidate for many healthcare applications due to inherent properties like dimensional stability, wear resistance, and lubricity. As a homopolymer acetal, Delrin® offers a high degree of crystallinity, which provides excellent mechanical properties. It’s high modulus makes it one of the stiffest and strongest unreinforced engineering polymers available. With the need for sustainable solutions becoming more critical, things like recyclability and light-weighting are also key benefits. In addition, Delrin® is now available with Renewably Attributed (RA) options, which perform and process identical to their fossil fuel based offsets. This talk will highlight the previous concepts and cover a healthcare case study.

Medical Plastics Division Monthly Virtual Networking Hour – January 2022

January 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Speaker: Dan Gorsky Title: Polymers in Ultra-Cold Environments in Packaging and Devices Abstract The role of polymers in the successful implementation of new pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices/packaging is increasing as products become more sensitive to environment. To manage stability and integrity, products are stored and shipped at ultra-cold temperatures (<-40°F); a temperature range at which many traditional polymers are not well understood at an application level. This presentation highlights the level to which polymers can be characterized and analyzed…

Medical Plastic Division – Virtual Technical Forum & Networking Event – FEBRUARY 2022

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Virtual Conference,

Title: Manufacturing of Micro Medical Parts without Cold Runners Abstract: Micro medical parts are often molded out of expensive resins such as PEEK or PLGA. Conventional technology requires molders to use cold runners to mold micro parts. The weight of the cold runner volume can be 2X to 50X the weight of the part. The cold runner also significantly increases the cycle time and secondary molding operations. The combination of increased material usage and length cycle times results in higher…
