Micromolding And 3D-Printing: Process Review
Products with micro-sized features can exist on the surface of miniature and micro-sized parts, as well as be produced in abundance by using micromolding. Micromolding technology is effective, repeatable, durable, and cost effective for many production applications.Continue Reading..
Sterilization Of 3D Printed Medical Devices
Fused Deposition Modeling™ (FDM® ) can be used to produce an array of medical devices; however, for such devices to be practical, they must be manufactured using sterilizable materials. By David Espalin, Francisco Medina, Mireya Perez, and Ryan Wicker, The University of Texas at El Paso; and Terry Hoppe and Rob Winker, StratasysContinue Reading..

    Just because trade events and conferences are postponed and travel has been restricted, it doesn't mean that innovation has to slow down. Learn about the enabling power of micro injection molding from this Accumold Virtual Trade Show video.

  • OEMmedicaldeviceassembly 1_qtp

    This video gives insight on a dental medical device’s journey from the prototype phase to production. The device needed to be small enough to image rear teeth, robust enough to replace physical impressions, and had to make precision measurements for prosthetics. The process involved complex optics, steps to ensure hygienic sterilization, high resolution 3D imaging, and more. Download the video to see how it was done.

    Thrombus accumulation on blood-contacting devices such as catheters, vascular stents, or hemodialyzers can lead to device failure or serious complications. Endexo additive technology can modify the surfaces of blood-contacting devices to reduce adhesion and activation of blood components, thereby significantly reducing thrombus formation, associated complications, and overall costs.

    Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) systems use a high-powered laser to selectively melt and fuse powder particles of a bioresorbable polymer in a layer-by-layer 3D printing process to manufacture a final implantable medical device part. Depending on the part geometry, these systems can typically print geometries as small as 0.4 mm with a tolerance of +/- 0.25 mm.

    Mold flow analysis is not required for the injection molding process. But maybe it should be, especially considering it can help to predict manufacturing issues before production starts.

  • Digital-Manufacturing-Supply-Chain-980x654

    Digital manufacturing uses technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and Machine Learning (ML) to connect services, supply chains, products, and processes. In doing so, it provides greater visibility into the entire supply chain.

    Cost can influence nearly all aspects of your project, from material selection and surface finish to the types of features you include. When determining which technique to use at different points in the product development process, a cost comparison analysis can be helpful to provide a sense of when to start thinking about 3D printing or injection molding for your prototypes or production run.

    Developing medical device parts is a high-stakes process, and material choice is an important decision. Five strong contenders include PEEK, PEI, and PPSU; polycarbonates; medical-grade liquid silicone rubber; and 3D-printed titanium and ABS-like WaterShed XC 11122.

  • 3D Printing For End-Use Production

    Instead of creating merely conceptual models not durable for long-term use, 3D printing now is being used in machining, injection molding, and other conventional manufacturing processes. This article explores technology leaders in this area, and assesses the production capabilities for each 3D printing process.
