Die Extrusion Technology for Medical Tubing Applications

Patent-pending process would allow 1000-plus layers from a single extruder.Although the concept of nanotechnology (controlling matter on an atomic scale) dates back to 1959, it is only now becoming more commercially realized. It has the potential to challenge the way all products are extruded in almost every type of medical tubular or related industrial product applications.

Laser Sintering for Customized Medical Applications

Additive, layer-by-layer manufacturing process allows for the manufacture of complex geometries in plastic and metal implants and orthoses.Engineers have long been aware of the potential of laser sintering to create innovative and beneficial medical products. Because it is an additive (layer-by-layer) manufacturing process, laser sintering can build parts free of the traditional constraints imposed by machining or molding.Recent medical applications of laser sintering are now demonstrating the technology’s unique capabilities for mass customization and the manufacture of designs with complex geometries in both plastics and metals.
